It's been hot here in the bay area this past week! It's been in the high 80's and I definitely feel it. It's cooler outside then it is inside even with all of our fans on and windows open. For some reason when it's hot out the house stays hotter than outside temps and when it's cold the house is freezing cold and the walls are cool. In our room last night it was 94 degrees and outside it was only 80 when the sun started going down. That's a huge difference! No wonder I've been feeling so tired and sluggish. Not to mention I am definitely sick with a cold :( I can't stop blowing my nose and sneezing. I've got a killer headache and feel as if I'm in a dazed fog and my right inner ear hurts. I hope this goes away quickly because being sick in the heat is making me feel terrible.
Last night for dinner I had strawberries, banana, and a sandwich (romaine lettuce, roma tomatoes, mustard, and avocado on a Oroweat 100% whole wheat sandwich thin. Everyone else had Red Baron pepperoni pizza that I added bell peppers, onions, jalapeņos, extra cheese, and extra pepperoni to.
Tonight I'm making a salad since it's supposed to be hot again today, Going to make some hard boiled eggs for the salad :) Salad will have romaine lettuce, roma tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, avocado, and hard boiled eggs. For my salad I cut out the yolk and just cut up the egg white on my salad to cut back on the fat and cholesterol. I love eggs but the high cholesterol is concerning so I put two egg whites on my salad and load up with veggies.
We're going to the gym as soon and the boyfriend gets off of work today :) Going to do some cardio and weights. The other day at the gym I managed to do 410 pounds on the leg press machine :) I felt so proud that I could even do it!
