Kates said...

give paleo a try. I did well on Monday then Tuesday I went to Hoggys. :)

Let's start at the very begining... it's a very good place to start. When you sing you begin with do re mi...

I promise not to let this blog get anymore scatter brained!

Alright, so Monday was a good day. I had a peach for breakfast, an apple for a snack, a sweet potato and grilled chicken for lunch, and finally spaghetti squash, green and red peppers, red onion, grilled chicken and light spaghetti sauce for dinner. It was delish and I wish I had taken a picture BUT I was too hungry.

I didn't go to the gym but I was so long in calories that I didn't feel quite so guilty. Then Tuesday happened. Hoggy's totally happened. Corn muffins, bbq pulled pork and mac and cheese so happened. Everyone will cringe when I say that after my apple for breakfast followed by that cluster fudge of a lunch I didn't eat for the rest of the day. I went to the gym, started my new weight lifting routine for an hour (see paragraph below), did ten minutes on the treadmill before heading outside to walk with the dog for an hour and fifteen minutes. I'm sure that didn't completely offset my dangerously bad lunch but I feel better for doing it.

Now, to share with you my new inspiration. Behold.

Laura is a girl, just like me. Imagine that! Laura is a girl who was almost my height, almost my weight and just as unhappy as myself. She made a change in her life and BOOM, girlfriend is looking diesel! She's inspiring and listed the weight training regimine she follows, the diet/food she eats and the cardio plans she uses.

For the first time, I went to the gym and did a workout that I put together, not my trainer... While I still felt a little out of sorts and like I was doing something wrong (which I did), for the first time I felt like I could do this on my own again. Yesterday I did a combo of the shoulders, biceps and back exercises she listed. Tonight I move on to legs... FUN!

Today I've had a banana, some delicious bag o' watermelon, I plan on downing a peach here soon and following up with a lunch of my sweet potato and grilled chicken. Dinner is a plan of peppers, onions, zuccini and squash paired with the light spaghetti sauce. (I know that the sauce is processed and not really following Katie's paleo, but I need a little somethin somethin!)
