Countdown: Day 36

What I ate today: 

  • Vanilla cultured coconut milk “yogurt” w/ 12 natural almonds
  • Banana
  • Apple
  • Boloco: small burrito bowl w/ brown rice, tofu, mango salsa, fajita veggies, lettuce, black beans, guacamole and a side of chips (I ate late so I was HUNGRY!)
  • Starbucks chai tea latte
  • LARA bar (cashew cookie)
  • HUGE salad w/ lots of baby spinach and arugula, cherry tomatoes, baby bella mushrooms, quinoa, sunflower seeds, and a little bit of olive oil 

My workout: 

  • I did random stuff at the gym… mostly arm stuff. I felt like going rouge today I guess lol. I didn’t feel like recording anything! 
  • From what I can remember, I did 10 mins jump rope to warm up (not the prettiest lol), then lots of different movements with free weights on the bosu ball, some arm stuff with cords, lots of single arm kettle bell swings, uneven push ups, assisted pull ups and dips…

Still feeling meh. I don’t know what it is. Am I coming down with something? Am I still really sad about Ivan? Am I just run down? I don’t know. But I’m glad I’m pushing myself to go to the gym. I think I do need to clean up my eating a little bit (not that it’s not clean, but Idk. I think I’m overeating? Something just doesn’t feel right.)

Countdown: Day 38

What I ate today: 

  • Vanilla cultured coconut milk “yogurt” w/ granola
  • LARA bar (PB cookie)

And thennn I was a bad girl and didn’t record the rest of what I ate. From what I remember, it was random stuff. I had a big ol’ salad for lunch and then another LARA bar and a handful of popcorn? So much for dinner… 

And I didn’t workout. I went to bed SUPER early instead because I wasn’t really feeling well. Kinda mad at myself, but I can’t beat myself up about it now. Just gonna MOVE on, both literally and figuratively. :) 

You know, I used to think the future was solid or fixed, something you inherited like an old building that you move into when the previous generation moves out or gets chased out. But it’s not. The future is not fixed; it’s fluid. You can build your own building, or hut or condo…the world is more malleable than you think and it’s waiting for you to hammer it into shape.
