Whole30, Day 7! (Thursday)

Friday, August 15, 2014

OMG, I made it a whole week without any cheating!

I did everything I set out to do for the WHOLE week: drink 10 glasses of water. Exercise daily. Take my vitamins. Track EVERYTHING. Be active on Spark. Get in 15,000 steps.

AND, I lost 7 pounds the first week. Now admittedly, I was coming off a monster two-day binge so I was full of water weight and bloat. But still. 7 pounds.

Now the goal is to keep it going! One day at a time!

Yesterday was a good day. We did a 75-minute Tabata class, which definitely deserves to be its own Circle of H3LL. It was SO hard and I am a mass of sore muscles today.

I am taking today as a rest day. It is hard for me to take rest days but at age 60 I know they are a necessity. Tomorrow we are planning to do another long walk/jog so today my body needs a break!

Here's what I ate yesterday:

Breakfast: two fried eggs, 1 turkey sausage link, 2 cups honeydew

Lunch: 2 medium apples with 2 tbl. almond butter

Dinner: 3 1/2 oz. chicken breast; kale/spinach/mushroom/onion saute; 6 oz. sweet potato with cinnamon, 1 tbl. coconut, and 1 tsp. ghee

Snack: 1 oz. cashews

Total calories: 1,385

Have a wonderful Friday, everyone!

    Wow congratulations! 75-min tabata class! Boy do I feel like a slacker!

Good for you taking a rest day. That is very important at any age.

I have to ask too, are you getting enough calories for the activity level you have going on? Just curious. That all sounded delicious!

Continued success to you!

    Holy moly!
Well, congrats on the seven pound loss but are you sure you are eating enough to sustain your activity level?
I thought the whole point of Tabata is that you only need to do it for shorter periods of time than traditional workouts.
Isn't it a form of interval training?
I'm confused.

    I am now thinking of putting the coconut butter on the sweet potato! Is that what you did? Sounds so yummy!
