40 day challenge: Day 1
Thursday, November 14, 2013
First, let me share this photo - it really has some truth to it
Here is the link in case it is too small to read. Definitely worth clicking on and while you're at it, check out her whole page which I find to be pretty helpful and encouraging. www.facebook.com
was one hour of Metabolic Training. We're talking sets of burpees and planks and pushups and full body workout stuff. I felt like I was in the army doing a boot camp training. My trainer had me doing Burpees on a medicine ball, then holding planks while balancing on the medicine ball. I am stronger than I think.
Egg scramble with sausage, onion, cheese - coffee with heavy cream - handful of almonds
Angus burger (no bun) & a lovely salad - 2 peices of lindt dark chocolate with mint
Tomato Bisque soup, 1/4 of a grilled cheese sandwich - was not planned, found myself eating it and quickly gave rest away to my daughter (win!!)
Then I got home feeling great about my eating. My daughter pulled a "surprise" out of the fridge. She had made a pumpkin cheesecake. It was a beautiful desert and made with love. I had a small peice.
As I've said before - calories made with love don't count, right?!
Proud I only had one small peice.
That in itself is an accomplishment. I also managed to leave it at home in the fridge and not bring any to work today.
Overall - good day 1!
