Howdy there! How are you today?
We went to the ranch this weekend, and man oh man, we had a BLAST! Here are a few pics …
I got up and decided to do some CARDIO this morning despite the drizzle of rain (FINALLY!) and the chill in the air – I did 30 minutes on the elliptical and 15 minutes on the treadmill. Talk about a MOOD BOOST, y’all. This absolutely set me up to have a positive day. 🙂 My plan is to do at least 30 minutes of cardio on most days. I think it’ll do wonders for my mood and body image.
Confession: I simply wasn’t hungry for breakfast – coffee held me over through my workout – so I had brunch at 11 instead! (This picture is so crappy, but I was hungry and ate before checking my camera!) I had a piece of toast with butter and jam, blackberries, two eggs, bacon, and some turkey sausage.
After my brunch, I was still hungry, so I roasted some carrots and ate them with hummus and jalapeno ranch dressing. YUM!
I wanted a snack after I hit up the stores, so I had some cucumber, Boar’s Head ham and American cheese, and some pretzel crisps with honey mustard.
Luke and I went back to Verdure at 3:30 and did leg day … we haven’t done leg day in a while, so we were both very wobbly afterwards!
Here’s a pic of what I wore to workout today – nothing fancy, and I’m afraid that my middle looks FAT AF in this getup, but I still wore it and tried to ignore my lying mind. I’m currently at about 133.8 lbs (I weighed today after lunch, so I had food and liquid in my stomach), and I’m trying to push past thoughts that I need to be skinnier, which I *DO* have … le sigh.
My stomach has filled out for sure – I can barely see my ribs now, and I can see my upper abs … it’s a hard adjustment to see, as I only see myself getting fatter, not fitter or healthier. It’s just part of the struggle, I suppose.
Around 5:15, I had a kombucha …
I had a lovely roast chicken salad for dinner – I baked some Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and red bell pepper in the oven and then topped some herb-y greens with hot chicken breast and drizzled it all with jalapeno ranch and BBQ sauce.
Have a great one,
