So I fully intended on posting this update last night but, in my exhausted state after a day of research and studying, I gave up pretty quickly when my computer started malfunctioning.
Alas, I have returned. And it’s my Friday!
Day 1 workout
40 minutes of vinyasa yoga (I used two twenty minute podcasts from Yoga Download, which rocks)
Day 1 menu
Breakfast: Orgain shake
Lunch: baby carrots, wine country chicken salad (basically the best ever…with cranberries and walnuts and grapes), and pita chips
Dinner: egg & veggie burrito, home fries, dried mango
Day 2 workout
30 minutes on the elliptical
Day 2 menu
Breakfast: Vegan morning glory muffin
Lunch: Black bean soup, granny smith apple
Snack: Pita chips with avocado/hummus, dried mango, chocolate
Dinner: brown rice bowl with veggies and tofu, chocolate, dried mango
2 weeks ago, I started my last 4 years of education before I am officially a Ms. Doctor. And apparently I also decided that cookies for dinner with a side of popcorn and chocolate for studying was balanced eating 2 weeks ago.
As much as I love the sweets while indulging in some girl-talk with my newly minted gal pals, I’ve started to feel sluggish and not so healthy in general.
Clogged, if you will.
I think my schedule is finally regulating itself and the days of going out on Mondays are beginning to dwindle. So, as my body screams for some TLC, I think I am entering a good and (hopefully) calmer time period to really focus on getting back my health.
Naturally, I need to bribe myself to do this. Namely, bribe myself with a new piece of Lululemon attire. Mostly because I really want to go shopping there and need to find a way to justify it on my poor student’s budget…and also because I know those late study nights with other people will often be accompanied by temptation.
What will these 2 weeks mean?
Well, I’m not doing a cleanse, per se. Just focusing on eating fruits and veggies at every meal, eating a normal breakfast, not OD-ing on coffee, exercising regularly, and not deciding that a dessert dinner should be a regular occurrence.
Happy Fake Monday! I’ll be back this evening with a Day 1 update
