I am so revved up!! I'm especially happy to see that, consistently through my journey I've noticed I have the most success with weight loss when I have 1 or 2 eat-whatever-I-want days mixed in. Since I tend to be under my calorie goal on most days (once I factor in my workouts), I'm thinking I might just need some days when I eat a lot more to balance things out. Some days I want to eat more. Some days I don't. Simple, really. And it's nice to see my body responds best to this routine.
I tried to do some push ups tonight to see if I'd made any progress. I managed 6. SIX! That's 2 less than the 8 I managed when I 1st started working on this. haha! Maybe I shouldn't have waited til post-workout to do them. But then again, tonight's workout didn't target arms and back at all, so...blah. I did 6 push ups. That's that.
I am so diggin' pinterest! Have you guys seen the plethora of healthy recipes there, all with photos? I've made a few snacks and sides I've found there so far, and I've been saving and printing out plenty of others. I started a recipe notebook with print outs. There is certainly no shortage of scrumptious food options for eating healthy. I'm finding I'm psyched for each new meal, especially when I'm planning it out ahead of time.
Today's great find: smashed chickpea and avocado salad:
That's tomorrow's lunch! YEAH!
