Day 2 is done, and how did I do?!?! GREAT!
So today's goals was that I wanted to really stick to my 3 meals today, and to not be hungry before my next meal, and to focus on drinking more water. Water helps me stay full, and keeps cravings down, it's very important for me to drink lots of water!
So for breakfast I had the same as yesterday (I made a full recipe of this, so that I could easily reheat it for my next meals), the Turkey, Apple Hash. It was just as amazing today, as yesterday! But today I ate more than I did yesterday, I would say I actually doubled the serving size from yesterday. It made me very full, and I stayed full all the way till lunch!
My workout today was a 5k run before breakfast, then between breakfast and lunch I went to our local YMCA and walked for about 30 minutes with my friends on the treadmills, (a very easy walk where we basically chat and waste time till Pilates starts), and then an hour class of Pilates. My legs are very sore from my Crossfit workout yesterday, and I don't know if it was because I didn't have a Pre-Workout meal, but I was sooo tired, and sore during Pilates. I was feeling pretty lame! I felt amazing afterwards though, and this is what counts!
Lunch was something new and exciting, it was Tuna Salad with homemade Mayo! My tuna salad consisted of, Tuna (duh), apple, celery, green onion, walnuts, a tiny bit of mustard and homemade Mayo. I have never made Mayo before, so this was a new experience for me. I don't think it turned out "perfect" but it tasted fine and will do for now! On my plate I put down 3 huge butter lettuces and piled each one with a huge scoop of the Tuna Salad. This was also a 'bigger' portion than I'm used to, but once again, I'm trying to get full. This meal was perfect and I loved everything about it!
Between lunch and dinner I was getting a headache, and I wasn't sure when I would be eating dinner, so I had a snack, deer jerky and almonds, just like my Pre-Workout snack yesterday. I probably shouldn't have had this, because I ended up eating less than an hour later, and really could have just done without it.
Dinner was a repeat of last night, (more leftovers), and don't be surprised if I eat it again tomorrow night! It's a GOOOOD thing it tastes so good and I don't mind eating leftovers, every meal/day of the week!
I feel really good about my day. I worked out hard, ate better and tomorrow I plan on doing it all over again!
Oh, yeah, I also baked some sweet potatoes today, hoping I would have a chance to eat them today, but it didn't happen....so they're now waiting patiently in my fridge, ready to go when I need a snack or an added veggie to a meal. YUM- I love sweet potatoes!
