Happy hump day my friends. Once again need I remind you not to go there with me, get your mind on something else for pumpkin’s sake!!
I mean I just went through a dang hurricane. Only to return to work with a broken air conditioner. Which was like going back through a hurricane again. Well back through a hurricane without rain. Oh and no wind. I mean not even a little breeze. Oh and with the lights on, only the air not working. I think you get the picture!
Have you ever been through a hurricane? Yeah trust me you don’t want to. Because there is nothing else to do but eat. Oh and drink. I am talking about the grown up versions of drinks. Which leaves you like 8lbs. heavier than what you were the day before the dang thing arrives. I just don’t get it. If a hurricane blows away houses, blows down tress, blows out you lights, why can’t it blow away your weight??
That is why I am loving Jenn’s new theme for What I Ate Wednesday! She is all about good habits. Which is why I love here. Which is what I didn’t develop during the dang hurricane. Which is what I need to work towards. Ok, ok I know it’s a little dramatic. I mean I didn’t totally fall off the wagon. I just took a small stumble
But I wasn’t joking about the 8lbs! Which I know is a good bit of water retention, I am sooooo bloated (no drama in this statement).
“So for the new What I Ate Wednesday theme, lets make a few goals and FALL into good habits this month. You set the pace! Pick a few small goals or one big one, and embrace some healthy changes in your life!”
So here we go…….
Breakfast: peach dough boy smoothie (KERF), coffee, water.
Lunch: pork loin, couscous, small salad (thanks to my wonderful friend)
Snacks: yogurt, banana.
Dinner: grilled chicken, sweet potatoes, salad.
sorry for the iphone pics, didn’t have my camera battery charged this morn
Not a bad spread if I must say so myself. I know that we are starting on the fall theme this month, but give me a break on the summer spread. I still have some great fruits/veggies available at the produce stand so I am enjoying them as long as I can. I promise you the pumpkin is coming really, really soon!
Now I have to admit that my two goals for this week in BBB was to start eating more greens, and replacing a snack (which is usually in bar form) with a piece of fruit. I had already set in my mind that I was going to lose the weight gained last week, as well as get back on track before I saw the challenge. Which means that I get to come up with some new and exciting goals to work on for the month of September!!
Here we go…….
- continue to run three times per week (my 5k is Saturday)
- eat at least three vegetarian meals per week
- organize my new office (so busy I have yet to work on organization)
I may or may not add to the three above through out the month. I will have to see how things go, what things come up that I would like to address, and see how I handle the above goals along with the ones for bootcamp.
So tell me what are some goals you would like to address to fall into good habits
