The Salad Case: Oops!

Workout: 30 min Jackie Warner's Routine A Circuit 1 Weight Lifting session + 20 interval run

Yayyyy, I actually got up to workout this morning. Whoop!

I only got about 6 hours, but it was the good quality sleep kind so I didn't awake cursing myself for having set the alarm. 'Twas a good morning:)

I hadn't lifted weights in 2 weeks so this workout was just what the doctor ordered. The only thing is, I kept having to reread the description to decide if she meant to pick one Circuit (from the available 3) for Routine A, or if you had to do all 3 circuits to complete Routine A. I'm so confused!

According to Jackie Warner, these routines should be done at a fast pace with no rest in between sets and it should take about 30 minutes. If she means all 3 circuits, there is just absolutely no way. It takes me 30 minutes just doing one circuit. Do you know what she's talking about?

In terms of healthy eats, I'm trying this new thing of having pre-workout snack  followed by breakfast before work and I'm liking it. I used to get to work starving, so I thik this change just works better.

However, today I was famished by 11 so I had an early lunch. An hour later, I remembered that I forgot to take a picture - I even packed the good camera and everything!

So as a back-up, here's a picture of the one I had a couple of weeks ago but never posted!

Today’s looks kinda different, picture it with the following mix:

  • 3 handfuls of spinach
  • 3 handfuls roasted veggies: broccoli, carrot, eggplant
  • 1/4 cup leftover rice
  • 1/2 leftover filet medallion (Texas Roadhouse is good!)

There's some Sunday night prep-work that always goes into packing these cases and last night it made me think. I should really try to remember all the hard-work that goes into a healthy lifestyle before I choose to waste it away on silly indulgences.

Jackie ( I mean Mila Kunis) might be onto something when she says losing weight is all about will power! How do you feel about that?

I know it's a lot harder for some people to loose or maintain their weight, but in my case I would have to agree with her. For me, it's the little choices I make each and every day that add up to the big picture (or weigh-in)!

Off to pump up that will power!!!

I have no idea what Jackie Warner is talking about having only done her videos but I do know she kicks my butt!

Your salad looks good. I need to go to the farmers market and roast some veggies of my own.
