Blogged my usual monthly results yesterday so today going to catch up on yesterday and today's ramblings about my 30 day challenge.
Not really much to report other than I am so stinkin' excited to be nearing the end it all. Not in a bad-got-to-be-done-with-this-c
rap way, but in a yeah-I-did-it kind of way!
The workouts have been seeming to go by faster lately though. At first when I started level 3 there were a few parts that I was thinking did Jillian stop counting because I think it's been longer than normal LOL. I do pretty well with most of it except the jump lunges which I just do alternating lunges as the modification shows for beginners. I have trouble with lunges anyway.
Eating is going well. Doing the whole30 the second time around was definitely easier. Mostly because I know the foods and don't have to refer to the list very often. Most of the meals are the same that I ate last time too. I am looking forward to coffee and peanut butter and it's going to feel like a treat! Miss my lentils and chili too so those will be meals very soon.
I do plan on keeping my goal of trying more things. I've never had quinoa or chia seeds and those seem to be popular in a lot of recipes. I also want to eat more avocado. I love it, but when I try to buy it I buy ones that must not be ripe. Any suggestions on picking out good ones?
Two more days of this challenge and I can start the ripped in 30! Tired of hearing that yet? LOL Being on the last bit of this workout is making me crave a new workout. Also looking forward to having a rest day. I'll still walk everyday, but you know what I mean.
Thanks for reading! Have you tried quinoa or chia seeds? What are your thoughts? Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
