A Good Day
It feels like more and more often I’m having meh days, bad days or just plain ol’ horrible days. Over the past week I’ve felt like I have gotten myself back and you know what? I’ve missed me!!
I enjoyed today. Yeah, I was at work and that kinda sucks, but overall I had an amazing day and it feels really good.
I’m not sure what made today so great, just that it was and I’m thankful for it. 🙂
Today was the first full day of being on the South Beach Diet again. Having real, clean food was refreshing and yummy!
Last night we had taco trays w/ salad, chicken and spicy beans on the side.
For breakfast this morning, it was what will probably be the standard for the next two weeks, scrambled eggs and turkey bacon. Pretty uninteresting, but yummy! 🙂
Lunch today was salad (sensing the theme yet?) w/ tuna. You can’t see the tuna under the salad, but believe me it’s there!
Dinner tonight was roast veggies (sweet red pepper, cauliflower and broccoli) with chicken and salad. It was pretty easy, just whacked everything into one non-stick pan, seasoned the veggies, poured some Nando’s Hot Marinade on the chicken and baked it covered for 25 minutes, then took the cover off for the last 10. Yum!
Dessert was just your bog standard Angel Delight, which we haven’t had for years. But it’s perfect for SBD and banana is my fave! Mmmm!
I did my Insanity workout tonight when I got home. I had to suffer through it a bit, lacking motivation, but I got through it and I swear I can do some of the moves much better now. Power Jumps and V Pushups especially!!
And someone said some nice things about me, which made me feel really good (and also helped with my motivation) and I’m now more determined to do what I need to do to be stronger and healthier.
My goal for tomorrow is not to have a better day than today, but to remain positive and stay motivated. I know that will be especially difficult this week, but I’m going to give it my all. I’d like to feel like I’ve done really well at the end of the week, but need to accomplish that one day at a time.
I hope you all had a good day, too! <3
