Today didn’t start out like I had planned. Ahhhh…so many days with so many great intentions. Ha! This morning I had an unexpected meeting so it was go, go, go with the kids and hubby out the door. We had a BIG presentation and it was all hands on deck so the day had to shift for me. All meals were quick and easy.
Breakfast: 1 gluten free waffle and 3 (yes 3) cups of coffee. BIG meeting = 3 cups of coffee. 🙂
Snack: Handful of almonds
Lunch: After the big meeting I had a bunch of errands to run before I got the kids so Panera was the pick of the day. I love their Chicken Cobb Salad.
Small portion of their Chicken Cobb salad and apple. Sad to report, but the apple was soggy so I ate one slice. 😦
Mid-Afternoon workout: Weights DVD and 2 mile sprint.
Here’s the kicker… I got done with my list of errands and realized I needed to shop or find something to wear for a work function (gala) next week. I do not own fancy clothes. I have 2 dresses in my closet that I consider “fancy.” One, a coworker gave to me a few years ago because it didn’t fit her anymore (it was too big), and the second was a dress from my sister’s wedding. If you have read this blog you know that the last few months have been hard for me. I just haven’t been as strict. The whole reason I’m in this “30 day challenge” is to get back on track. I guess I have been down right disappointed with myself until today. I tried on the dress from my sister’s wedding from November 2013 and it fit! I was so nervous, but it FIT! I step on the scale every day and I’m disappointed from where I was, but today I realized it’s not all about the scale.
I sent the pic to my sister to make sure it looked okay for the gala.
I tried on the dresses before I worked out, and it was such a kick in the ass to just GET. IT. DONE! And I had a great workout! BOOM!
After workout snack: Lara bar
Dinner: BBQ chicken leftovers, avocado, grapes and strawberries.
And 1 gallon of water done and done for the day.
Soooo ready for the weekend!
