Today was a bit hectic......
I woke up around 9 after going to bed after midnight. For breakfast, I ate a scrambled egg omlette with two eggs, two egg whites and peppers and vegetables; with 3 slices of bacon. Oh so good with herbs and garlic. You can never go wrong with garlic. (Maybe that is why I am single, because I have garlic breath... lol)
I was training a new girl at work today and so my day was all off because it was taking longer to train. And of course it was busy today too. I had a few minutes to get down some vegetables and a coconut milk/protein shake.
After an hour of Zumba, I had spicy shrimp cooked in coconut oil with mashed cauliflower for dinner around 8:15.
Then I had a long and arduous conversation with my ex boyfriend about my stuff at his place. Oh the joys of that conversation. If this is what divorce feels like, I am not sure I even wan to think about marriage. :-(
So after the conversation, I was a bit hungry again so I sliced an apple up and had some almond butter with it. Almond butter is soooooooooo good! It's sweet and salty with a great texture.
So my totals today are 1153 calories, 61g of carbs, 66g of fat and 86 g of protein. A smaller amount of protein because I didn't have a double amount during lunch. But I felt good all day and I am still loving these foods!
Day 4 should be easy enough!

So yesterday, I worked at double at the bar. I had lunch and dinner already packed and ready to go for when I was hungry.
So I had a personal training in the AM, and for a qucik pick me up; I had a tablespoon of almond butter (sweet and salty, it was great) with a banana.
Afterwards, I wasn't that hungry so I didn't force myself to eat and ate about an hour later. I had the crustless quiche, but added asparagus with chopped bacon and garlic. That side dish was amazing! I saved the other half for lunch. :-)
Lunch included a chicken breast with the asparagus. I ate that around 2:30 feeling satisfied.
Around 4, I had a protein smoothie with coconut milk and whey protein. (I know whey is milk products and that isn't on the paleo diet, but I bought a 6 lb bag at Costco a month ago and I am going to use it gosh darnit!)
Then the rest of the night went weird. It was very slow between 5-7:30 and that was my opportunity to eat dinner' but I wasn't hungry and my stomach was still full. Then the bar ended up getting busy until I closed. I realized I hadn't eaten and it was to the point where it was just late. So when I got home at midnight, I went to bed and then my stomach was feeling hungry and having some pains.
So my totals for yesterday was 994 total calories, 51g of carbs, 45 g of fat and 101 g of protein.
I don't work a double today so it will be a better day for me. :-)

So day 1 started off okay. I kinda dipped this morning (like 1 am this morning) by eating a bit of buicuts and gravy from Shari's after dancing and a couple of drinks. (but hey, I wore my heart rate monitor and I burned 1600 calories dancing for three hours).
But starting off Sunday, I had the a serving of the crustless quiche I made with carrots and zucchini with two slices of bacon at 10 am when I was getting ready for work.
I started to get hungry at 1 pm. I drank some water but I looked at the clock and thought it was 2:30 so I decided to eat something. (It was really 1:30). So I had 6 oz of chicken breast and a homemade smoothie with coconut milk, berries, spinach, kale, chia seeds, flax seeds and protein powder. After lunch, I felt a bit better with some energy.
I didn't get home until 7 pm, that's when I made broiled steak, with sauteed peppers and onions with mashed cauliflower. I ate, but I wasn't that hungry. So i took my time with dinner and felt satisfied afterwards.
I stayed around 1200 calories, with 55 grams of carbs, 64 grams of fat and 135 grams of protein.
So it was a good first day. I have tomorrow planned out and put together because I am working a double so I will be working for lunch and dinner. (I hate the long days, but you gotta do what you gotta do)

Sooooo It's been a while since I have used SparkPeople and it has not been good. I ran my second half marathon on August 5th. After that, I stopped training and no motivation (because I had no more external motivation) my appetite was the same and I kept eating the many calories I was while I was training. The weight just hopped back on. :-( I am at about the same when I started training earlier in the year.
Also later in August, I was going through a life change. I didn't get the job I wanted and I had to make a decision to stay in Central Oregon or to move back to the Valley (and to my 6-year relationship with my boyfriend).
I fell in love with Central Oregon when I first moved. There were always outdoor activities, weekend events, lots of free music and I made some good friends out here. After being depressed in the Valley and weighing 200 pounds, I felt good over here with the healthy atmosphere and the many exercise opportunities. I liked who I was becoming over here.
So I decided to stay in Central Oregon. My boyfriend didn't like that and we broke up. It was very difficult then and is still difficult now (two months later). I was lucky enough to find 3 jobs (one main job and a couple of catering opportunities) and am enjoying Central Oregon for another year.
Last night, I found out that my ex boyfriend has started seeing another girl. I didn't take it very well. I was hurt, pissed, and sick to my stomach. I was crying all night. I couldn't believe that he moved on so quickly. It has been only two months! I figured a 6 year relationship would take a little more to move on from.
I talked to my mom and she said she would be able to assist me with some counseling, if I needed it. Then it dawned on me....
I don't need a counselor, I need a personal trainer. To get back into shape, to feel better on the inside and outside. To release endorphins so I am happier. To finally get that tattoo on my side. To start moving on. For closure.
I need to do this for me. To start a-new.
I will start to use SparkPeople more. Get back on track. Feel better.
I wish you all luck in your journeys, as I start mine again.
Sorry, I needed to write this down and to vent.
