so this morning, i woke up with not a whole lotta motivation. didn't eat breakfast (naughty!). a friend gave me 3 bunches of very ripe bananas, so i spent the whole morning making banana muffins, etc for the kids. my recipe is pretty heathly (only 1/4 c sugar, all whole grains, 2tbsp oil), so i put chocolate chips in half of them. and ended up snacking on chocolate chips. too many of them.
but my day is getting better. i got a call from my SIL, who was very overdue to have my newest nephew, and not only was he born *today*!! but i also won the baby pool... the prize being the very first phone call after the birth. so i'm the very first to hear the happy news! woot! "Pickles" was his nick name in utero, and he doesn't have a real name yet.. so i'm hoping they will sort that one out soon :D
so i did my strength training workout. workout B1 from phase 1. it included deadlifts, lunges, shoulder presses, lat pull downs, and swiss ball crunches. because i knew i chose too light weights last time, i started off with much heavier weights today. and i totally felt the difference. i expect to be a little sore tomorrow. i think i could even increase the weights a little more on the deadlifts, but the rest was pretty good i think! now i know where i'm starting on some of these lifts, so i can plan how to increase over time. phase 1 lasts 6 weeks, can't wait to see how much i can lift by then!
planning a healthy dinner. gotta get back on track for food today!
