Day 2 - Feeling Great!
Monday, January 04, 2010
Finished Day 2 of Boot Camp, including the bonus challenge: eating 3 servings of fruit. I managed to hit all of my goals today, nutrition-wise, H2O, and fitness. I am so proud of myself! Today was a breeze for some reason. I was really excited to fix some healthy meals and since I had the day off of work, I made myself a delicious vegetarian lunch that filled me up for quite a while!
I'm trying to decide whether I should be spreading out my eating more or isolating it to three meals a day. I have heard that one has better luck with several small meals, rather than the traditional three. I am quite a snacker, so this method works for me.
I survived the mall without getting anything bad for me! I went to Sephora and Borders to cash in my gift cards and started to get really hungry. All the wrong foods smelled delicious, but I remembered there was a Subway in the mall, so I booked it there and had a chicken breast sandwich with red wine vinaigrette and a bunch of veggies (no cheese - which pained me so!). Since I get really lost and disoriented in malls (blame it on ADD and overstimulation), I got a decent amount of walking in, but by the time I got home I was ready for the challenge.
Did the challenge work-out, which despite it's shortness, really made me feel like I did something. After the ball workout, I went straight into a Tae Bo Cardio video, which was probably a level too high for me. I'm quite the overachiever, so I stuck it through anyhow and burned over 450 calories in 30 minutes. Hell yes!
If everyday was like today, I know this couldn't be too hard! However, I have a feeling that sometimes it will get tough and my motivation might need an adjustment, but I'll take the positive vibes while I got them.
