It’s the start of another week, well I know not technically, but the start of mine as I go back to work tomorrow (sigh!). I took an extra day off this shift in order to have the same days off as my husband.
It was a great weekend in terms of workouts and I did get to add a little variety to my diet with some turkey breast. (Any little change helps at this point; so the turkey breast was delightful.
Thanksgiving always sets the tone to reflect and be thankful for our lives and the people in them. I am so thankful for my husband; the love of my life, family, friends, my health, my willpower, my job (as much as I complain about it most times), my supporters and all the little messages of encouragement I get…there is so much to be thankful for.
I did experience moments throughout the weekend when my whole body hurt and today is no different but it feels like typical PMS symptoms to me and I am due to start my period anyway now. My emotions are also all over the place and there have been moments when I have just broke down and cried for no apparent reason (also sigh!).
We stopped in
Here are my shoes:
We stopped at Denny’s for something to eat after shopping and I was pleasantly surprised to find a menu item called “The Fit Slam”. It came with egg whites (spinach & tomato), turkey bacon, whole wheat English muffin and fruit. I, of course, had to pass on the bread and fruit but I just asked for some side veggies instead and they were accommodating to that. It was quite yummy!
After getting back to
Once that was all done, I had a nice bath to sooth my body. I have started exfoliating and moisturizing as well now every day because I don’t want to have dry skin for the competition.
Then off to bed, 4am comes really early!
