Fit Friday!

First of all, thank you so much for your feedback on the meal delivery plansI went back and forth so much on even considering doing the meal delivery service because I felt “I can do this myself!” But the Personal Trainer Diet Food plan looks legit. The meals are high protein and seem more natural/less processed. I think the meal plan would teach me how to eat properly and learn balanced portions. I think that would work well for me. I don’t see it as a long term solution and I don’t see it as a diet. I see it as a way to retrain my body. Practice self-control. There is no temptation for take-out if I put the financial commitment into it. I also realized if I sign up for the delivery service it doesn’t mean I gave up and am not “doing it myself.” Because it will still be hard. I am still going through the motions and making the conscious decision to eat well. I think the other reason this service looks so appealing to me is because I really look up to Candice Cameron (Remember DJ from Full House?) She struggled with her weight for years, even suffered with bulimia for a time. She looks amazing now and when asked in an interview what she did she told them she did a meal delivery plan. I don’t know, it made it okay in my eyes then. Also, your comments and my parents support and advice made me realize I want to try it out. All that to say, my eats will be kinda random this week as I try to clean out the pantry and fridge.
  
Here is my workout schedule:

Sunday - Shred Level 1
Monday - Walk 50 minutes
Tuesday - Insanity and walk 50 minutes
Wednesday - Walk 50 minutes
Thursday - Shred Level 1 and walk 50 minutes
Friday - Walk 50 minutes
Saturday - Insanity

I decided to switch it up and start doing The Shred again. Mainly because 40 minutes of Insanity seemed unbearable Sunday morning. I haven't lifted weights in months since I've done Insanity and was surprised at how hard it was to lift again! Even 5 pounds! I was also surprised at how sore I was the next day. EVERYWHERE. My arms. My legs. My abs. It all hurt. Jillian's knows what she is doing! In 25 minutes, no less! I still love Insanity, but it was a nice change.



Sunday night we stopped at our favorite Thai place on our way home from my parents. This tofu pad thai was my dinner Sunday night and my lunch Monday and Tuesday. I love when take-out can feed you for three meals! It was so good. 


My morning snacks have been an apple and my afternoon snack has been popcorn. 


My breakfasts have been these Jimmy Dean Egg White and Turkey Sausage Bowls. OMG. Amazing!!


My dinners have been Trader Joe's Veggie Burgers with a side of brussels sprouts. Yummo! I also had these Trader Joe Chicken Brats that were pretty darn tasty, but I forgot to snap a photo. Tonight we are having pork chops on the grill with edamame. How have you guys been doing?
