She rested.

Monday was a rest day. It was good (and smart) to rest yesterday. It was difficult, too. I felt a bit guilty and somewhat worried that I was “falling off the wagon,” a phrase that I hate. As someone who has been overweight for quite sometime and who is constantly talking about starting a diet and/or workout routine but never quite sticking to it, I am obviously afraid of losing momentum. But never fear, I was up at 5:55am today and back at it. Kathryn (my workout buddy) and I met and walked about 2.5 miles. This evening, I did a create-your-own workout at home (resistance band work, squats + jumping jacks) while watching The Biggest Loser. Now, I’m watching the State of the Union before crashing in my bed. This early rising is gonna take some getting used to. 😉

MONDAY’S FOOD:
Breakfast
Peanut butter + banana smoothie (with 0% strawberry Chobani instead of almond milk)

Lunch
 Subway (6-inch turkey + ham; no cheese; loaded with veggies; baked sour cream + onion lays)

Dinner
Taco Bell bean burrito

I was in the car a lot yesterday, and since I hadn’t gone grocery shopping over the weekend, I had to eat on-the-go, which I don’t prefer. I was, however, relatively pleased with my choices and managed to stay below my daily calorie goal. As soon as I got home last night, I headed to the store to purchase some healthy eats for the remainder of the week!

TODAY’S FOOD
Breakfast
0% Blood Orange Chobani (not my favorite flavor so far)
Multi-grain cheerios
Honeycrisp apple

Lunch
Lower sodium turkey breast sandwich on Oroweat sandwich thin (w/ wholly guacamole 100-cal pack; spicy sprouts; lettuce; tomato; dijon mustard)
Grapes
String cheese

Dinner
5-oz. can of tuna on a bed of lettuce w/ tomato + low-fat balsamic vinaigrette

*Forgot pictures of lunch and dinner! I’m working to get better at this. Bear with me. 🙂

I’m off to bed. The alarm is going to come all too early tomorrow. I’m looking forward to pushing through a tough workout in the morning. I will leave you with this tweet I read today, “You can either be sore or sorry tomorrow. Your choice.”
