Dene - that's an EXCELLENT idea! Something to motivate you to move!!
I'm doing pretty good! Thursday night was coconut curry cashew chicken (5 stars by ALL of us - fabulous!!) and I made corn for the boys and roasted cauliflower for me. Workout was Candlelight yoga which is always SOO awesome! RedRox never plays the same music combo twice - and it's always great music for yoga! Every once in a while I hear a song I know which is fun, but I like hearing all of the other music that is new to me. The class can be really challenging for me, but I always feel so relaxed once I get home! That's my favorite workout of the week by far!
Today I rowed 3 miles - and I have the blisters on my hands to prove it! I didn't want to go work out - the only way I could motivate myself to go to the gym was to strip off my work clothes and weigh myself before putting on my gym clothes. The scale was really NICE... and that motivated me to go workout! lol The gym is really empty on Friday evenings!
I was way too wiped out to cook so we got take out from the Black-eyed Pea restaurant. NOT the best place for take out since they specialize in comfort food/southern cooking and so much of their stuff is fried! I ended up getting a Sirloin steak on mushrooms and grilled onions, and I also ordered a veggie platter which is your choice of 5 veggies/sides out of 15 or more. Uh.... unfortunately I couldn't eat the majority of them! Kernel corn.... grilled corn on the cob... breaded and fried corn on the cob. Broccoli and white rice casserole. White rice and beans with bacon. Glazed carrots. Loaded baked potato. French fries. Mashed potatoes with gravy. Ok, that's 9 of the choices. Um.... green peas, spinach, broccoli, sweet potato, sweet potato fries, squash casserole. I think there might be even more. OH YEAH- mac and cheese and cinnamon apples in a heavy syrup. I'm probably still forgetting some of the options. The food was very good - but I hated wondering WHAT everything was cooked in! I work too hard to blow it by eating crappy food when I get take out!
Tomorrow the boys and I are volunteering to help clean up the Highland Canal in our city. They are going to feed us lunch afterwards... how much do you want to bet that nothing is Beach friendly??? Which is ok - I'm not going for the food, ha ha.
Since I am working so hard on improving my body and health, I am also trying to get more sleep and keep upbeat by thinking positive thoughts as much as I can. I never realized how often my thoughts turn to depressing topics! Ugh!!
I feel better and better every day!
