I was so busy on Wednesday...hence no blog about Tuesday which means you get a double dose of recap today!
Right, so, Tuesday. My HHC daily goal was to eat all natural. I kept confusing myself with all natural vs paleo. As you may know, Angela tries to keep as paleo as possible and I found myself trying to eat the "caveman" way which I guess could also be construed as all natural. Anyway...for breakfast I skipped the shake (ingredients I couldn't pronounce) and the bagel thin (more ingredients I couldn't pronounce) in favor of 2 eggs scrambled with 2 slices of deli ham (probably doesn't count because of the preservatives) and swiss cheese. This is why I could never handle that lifestyle, I'd drive myself crazy trying to figure out what to eat.
When lunch came around I was faced with a dilemma. Did I eat my pretzels & yogurt (not all natural) or go to the cafeteria and buy something all natural (use another meal out). I decided that the lesser of the 2 evils was to eat my food from home.
After work I had plans to meet Mandy at the gym for a kick boxing class. She was running a little late so I did 15 minutes on the elliptical while I waited for her. The class was awesome! I really enjoy the instructor and plan on making it to her Tuesday class as often as possible.
On the way home from the gym I was starving so I called Joe to see what our dinner plans were...he had already eaten...without me...the nerve! I debated picking up a salad on the way home but again thought about those 6 meals out left for the month and decided to raid the fridge at home. I ended up putting together a delightful treat, rosemary and olive oil triscuit crackers with vermont white cheddar cheese slices and deli sliced london broil. IT WAS SO GOOD!
Goals ~ Tuesday:
- Water: 64 oz check!
- Healthy Eats: 810 calories left!
- Exercise: 15 minutes on the elliptical & 55 minutes of kickboxing!
- Weekly Focus - 10 Minutes A Day: check
- Daily Challenge - All Natural Eats: just not my thing
- meals out = zero!
- steps = 12,102!
I knew Wednesday was going to be a busy day and it really flew by for me. Seriously, I didn't even take any pictures! I started the day with a dark chocolate shake, it looked really gross but tasted good. We had a staff meeting and pot luck lunch scheduled at our main office that afternoon. I did a decent job of keeping my calories low, only eating 2 soft tacos and skipping the delicious cake & cupcakes. After work Joe & I attended a networking event at the Revel. It was really a good time. I knew a lot of people there but still got to spend time talking to new contacts. The only picture from the evening was this strip from the photo booth:
Goals ~ Wednesday (not great):
- Water: only got 48 oz
- Healthy Eats: 134 calories left! I was pleasantly surprised when I totaled everything up, I drank a few glasses of wine at the event but didn't eat much so things evened out. Not the healthiest plan but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do...
- Exercise: does walking in high heels count?
- Weekly Focus - 10 Minutes A Day: nope
- Daily Challenge - mini circuit: nope
- meals out = zero!
- steps = 7,517
