guess what?! it’s almost the weekend! yay! i’m excited because we’re making a trip up to ikea + i get to see my mom, hopefully!

yesterday was a pretty heavy post, but i’m feeling a lot better today, other than the fact that i cannot walk down stairs without looking like a complete idiot..

i have DOMS like no other right now.. they always say the third day after an intense workout is rough and they are right. those ‘they’ people know their stuff, whoever they are!

before i get into today.. i want to discuss the rest of my eats yesterday. my lunch and afternoon snack stayed the same ( i also got in over 1.5 gallons of water), but we ended up going out to mexican for dinner with barbara’s family so we could see all the babies. i went into it thinking i was going to get a salad with grilled chicken on top and refrain from ANY chips and guac. chips with a mixture of the ‘white sauce’ and salsa are my favorite part about mexican restaurants, so i knew i was in for a challenge.

as we pulled up, i decided that i was going to make this my free meal for the week.  i didn’t want to set myself up for failure. before, when i was doing BFL, i would have a free day where all the rules were thrown out the window. i loved that because i never felt deprived.. if i wanted something bad enough, i would just wait until my designated free day and indulge.  this go ’round ( i’m still following the 40/40/20 BFL eating), i have decided to cut back to only one free ‘meal’ once a week. i feel like i was indulging too much and only hurting myself in the long run.

so yeah, i had chips, white sauce + salsa, fresh guac (hold the cilantro.. YUCK!) and a chicken taco salad. i def didn’t eat the whole thing, but i did have some of that delicious shell.. mmm! gosh, i love mexican food!

so, nothing terrible, but i am keeping myself accountable here and need to make these choices known.

today, i’ve had a post workout protein/recovery creamsicle and i just finished my new obsession favorite snack: greek yogurt + banana + a container sprinkle of cinnamon + packet of stevia. i really wish i didn’t have to use the stevia, but greek yogurt alone hits me the wrong way, so i need something to offset that tartness. the rest of my meals will be chicken + pasta + veggies, then i have chicken marinating with some sweet potatoes and veggies for dinner

back to my workout this morning.. it was insanity: cardio recovery. don’t let the ‘recovery’ fool you into thinking it’s a piece of cake. i can feel soreness in my abs more from today than i have the other two workouts. i will tell you, i love a good case of DOMS, but this is crazy. i will be purchasing a foam roller this afternoon!

that’s all for now! i’m feeling good about starting this time.. let’s hope the motivation keeps rolling! i have a new product call ZRII coming in the mail that i cannot wait to try!

Q1: this question is for anyone who has had a wordpress blog before (if there are any of you reading this) how do i get a picture on the right side of my screen? i can’t figure it out!!

Q2: are there any meals/restaurants where you just know that you’re going to indulge, whether you try to or not?

    HELLLOOOOO Lady. It’s your favorite poster. 1) I have no idea how to get a photo anywhere beside the post. I dont know how to make separate pages, either. I want to make a links page like you have, but can’t figure it out.
    I had no idea “DOMS” were a thing with a name. LOVE IT. I was “DOM-in” like a Mo-fo yesterday. I feel hip and with it now. The honesty in your last two posts is really inspiring. I wish I could say something to help about your dad, but just know that you have family and friends and puppies that love and support YOU. I am like you (go figure) when someone pisses me off, I start binge eating. When I’m sad or nervous, no appetites, but if someone makes me mad, I’ll eat ridiculous things. I have had the urge to do that two times since I’ve starting training, but I realized each time and all im doing is making my SELF feel worse. Try and focus that negative crap into a workout. You’ll work up a sweat and relieve some stress while doing something good for you in the process. I know it sounds cliche, but I really do think changing that habit will help us a lot.
    One more thing. DO NOT. i repeat DO NOT. Make a peppermint/ coco protein shake. YOU WILL VOMIT. It is horrible. I tried 3 times with different amounts of stuff and it was just BAD. The quest for mint extract continues. Have a good one girl and give Scout a scratch from me!

    This was a fun post! I love Mexican food, too. Such a weakness. For the photo, try to go to Widgets in your Dashboard and add a text widget, then add the HTML for the photo. If that doesn’t make sense, I can do it for you, if you are cool with something like that. Let me know!

      I would love that! It’s if it’s okay with you!? I feel like all I ever do is ask you favors and questions!

      Thanks for the support from the prev post.. It means a lot

    OH! I forgot to mention: I AM OBSESSED WITH THE FOAM ROLLER. Truly. It’s board line weird. I take it with me EVERYWHERE. I’ve been known to sleep with it. I molest it to the point of almost hurting myself more, but it is the only thing that keeps my knee and hip pain in check. Love your foam roller and it will love you back.
