Yesterday was a good day for not eating sugar but I didn’t eat nearly enough food and I felt like crap for a good part of the day because I was low on calories.
Breakfast- plain yogurt with cinnamon- only ate half as it was so gross. Didn’t have any fruit to mask the taste of the sour Astro yogurt.
Lunch- steak, raw veggies and cheese stick- filling, delicious and sugar free!
Snack- 2 small oranges, piece of gum
I had my pedicure with Leigh after work (which was lots of fun!) so I didn’t get a chance to eat dinner until 8:00pm.
Dinner- two small slices of toast with organic natural peanut butter. So good and surprisingly filling!
Snack- 5 crackers- neither good nor bad.
This just goes to show how important meal planning really is- I was so tempted to buy some fast food dinner last night as I was starving but I resisted. The sugar cravings are pretty much gone and I can’t believe how much better I feel overall.
Since I was pressed for time and unable to make it to yoga class yesterday, I picked up Jillian Michaels’ Yoga Meltdown DVD to do at home. I asked Alison if she had done it before as she has recommended Jillian Michaels' workouts before. She said that it is more like power yoga and she is definitely right!!
There are 2 levels that are about 30 minutes each. I was able to squeeze it in between my late-night dinner and The Bachelorette! It is different from the hot yoga that I have been doing lately- a lot faster, but it is a great workout and I can feel my upper body this morning. I actually quite enjoyed it. Thanks Alison!
I still think I will buy another yoga DVD that is slower and more meditative but I am pretty happy with this one. Any recommendations? I would like the workouts to be around 20-40 minutes long.
Tonight I have to fit in a 4K run before another spa appointment after work. There is 100% chance of rain this afternoon so it’s going to be a wet one I am sure.
