Tuesday meals, Daily Goal, and workout woes.

Leftover grilled yams with maple syrup and 1 cup Vanilla Silk. They were just as good as they were last night and really filling! I couldn't eat them all.

Leftover spaghetti squash with tomato sauce
and a Cucumber, avacado and cilantro salad with rice wine vinegar.

Tomato Coconut Curry Soup w/chicken and rice noodles

Daily Goal: My goal was to stay out of my bed ALL day and I am very pleased to report that I was successful. There were many times I was tempted to crawl under the covers but I stayed strong. I accomplished a lot today to. Today's daily goal is morphing into my first Weekly Goal. Once I'm out of bed, I'm out for the day!

Tomorrow's Goal: Stay at the gym after Zumba and work my abs and arms till they're screamin'!

I tried to run tonight. Tried is the key word here. After .6 miles my body said 'no more!' I was feeling so discouraged and a little mad at myself. Then I thought about why I was having such a rough go. Here's what I came up with:
a) It's my time of the month
b) I've always been lacking energy at the end of the day
c) It's my time of the month
d) I had a lazy weekend
e) It's my time of the month

Did I mention that it is my time of the month? Auntie Flo just sucks the energy right out of me.

I'm not going to get down on myself. In the future I just need to make sure I get my running done in the morning. I'll stick to yoga or walking if I leave my workout till the evening from now on.


  1. You know what? You are awesome. Really. You are. LOOK at what you're doing. Keep it up. Walk as fast as you can. Keep moving, you're all right.

  2. I ditto the whole "you are awesome" sentiment. To even attempt to do ANYTHING when Flo's around is amazing!

  3. You TRIED. That in and of itself is something to be proud of. :)

    And Aunt Flo is... BAH! (Visiting me, too. lol)
