See how those little lessons start to creep in?
And it's only the third day...imagine my wisdom after 30.
So...this morning was a bit insane.
It was the first day back at school, (hallelujah, praisin' JESUS!), so the morning was busy getting Taylor ready and out the door....at the same time I was trying to pack up the ingredients for the veggie omelet.
From my experience at the day 3 breakfast attempt last time I tried this meal plan, I knew that making an omelet may have well as been doing physics, because it was that hard for me.
I butchered it, and it was more than gaggable.
I think the right word would have been, retchable.
And it was actually that morning in September that I broke the rules and ate my own breakfast, which led to a few pieces of licorice a few days later, a delay in the scale moving a day or two later, and then it was all but over for me after that.
So, you see the need for me to have the RIGHT omelet this morning.
Thankfully, I have amazing friends, and one of them is on the plan with me. (though she's not doing the workouts). So, as soon as I dropped Tay at school, I hightailed my jiggly behind to Bethany's with my ingredients in hand, ready to watch the master.
As I walked through her door, I think my tummy audibly greeted her before I did.
It's was, mmmm....maybe 8:15.
Then all of a sudden, THE WORST thing ever happened!
I realized I forgot my book, and Bethany's hadn't copied that day's recipes....and we were without a way to make breakfast.
I mean, it was a food disaster.
A diet suicide.
I think there may have been a tear.
Bethy was totally calm and positive (she hasn't given up coffee, so that's where the chipper came from, I'm sure), and promised she would make it work.
I, on the other hand, have issues when it comes to perfection and goals, and I was not about to disobey THE Tracy Anderson.
She made me promises.
And since she's the boss, I had to find a way.
I was about to drive back home AND then back.
People, we're talking about a veggie omelet here.
But, then I remembered the Tracy Anderson Facebook Page, which is my home away from facebook home, and I was SURE that one of those amazing girls would be able to save me.
So, I posted in all my desperation, that I needed that recipe or I surely starve to death.
No joke, within SECONDS Tina G. came to my rescue posting the recipe, and if I could have made out with her right then and there, I would have.Or maybe not. But, maybe.
Eating:Breakfast was a success, I mean, Bethany really knows a thing or two about omelets, and what made it stomachable was this: TAKE THIS TIP! We didn't puree the veggies. I REPEAT, don't puree the veggies. ESPECIALLY if you're a texture person. We've established I'm picky and I knew I couldn't handle mush. And it was definitely a good call, because it was actually edible. Now good is a relative thing when one is hungry, but I'd say it was actually kind of good.Basically, I didn't gag, and that is huge. And I totally ate every last bite.The snack was good, a bit bland, but good. Much better than the air yesterday.I've been sticking with eating half mid morning and half mid afternoon, so I can keep up my metabolism. Lunch was a party in my tummy. So yummy, so yummy. (too much gabba gabba?) But, again, you may not need ALL that dressing.Dinner was once again, perfection.I can't believe I ate salmon.Twice in one day.And I loved it.
I even stomached two roasted mushrooms.I'm all growns up.
Workout:Not too bad today!
I wasn't sore this morning, so I upped the reps to 35.
It is caaa-razy how those extra five make things rough.
And then I did the arm portion twice, and was kinda patting myself on the back.
I think Tracy may have even smiled at me, not sure, but I think.For cardio, I pulled out her 2008 Dance Cardio and decided to give it my all. The first routine was rough. After spending 40 minutes with the trampoline yesterday, my legs were like, "what?!? we have to catapult ourselves?!!?"They were a tad confused and fought me every time I attempted to leave the ground.But by the third song, I found my groove and finished strong.All in all, the entire workout took about 1 hour 40 minutes.
I'm definitely tired tonight and can feel my brain working a bit slowly, but I'm holding in there.
I will not give up.
I mean, already, I'm further ahead than the last time I attempted it...so that's promising!
I just keep reminding myself that it's just for 30 days.
I even break it up in my head in 10 day fragments, so really I only have 7 more.
So that's that.
Thinking maybe tomorrow I'll fill ya'll in more on why I'm doing this now...
and why it may work this time as compared to last time.
Well, look at the time. It's nearly 8.
Definitely almost bedtime for sure.
For those of you doing this with me....fill me in!
How's it going?
And remember, if you have any questions, leave them in the comments and I'll make sure to answer them there as well!
