The old Jen would have had this happen and go back to bed, gone out to eat multiple times today and felt sorry for myself all day long. The new Jen went to the gym and ate like I have been and realized that this is SO much more than just some number on the scale and I moved on with my day.
At the gym, I hit a new personal distance record, while I realize this is probably a warm up for most people, I was thrilled that I did 2.85 miles on the treadmill today! After that I had just enough time to do a little bit of ab work, squats and finally the saddest #plankaday time ever. It’s been almost 2 weeks since I have tried to hold plank and it showed…I was shaking at this time! Yikes. Still aiming for a 5 minute plank by the end of the year.
Delicious, hot oatmeal topped with crunchy peanut butter and blueberries. I forgot I bought the blueberries last week and they were on their way to nastiness, I saved as many as I could before having to throw the majority out. And a mug of hot peppermint tea on the side.
I cooked up a bunch of chicken and rice yesterday so I can eat it all week for lunches; today I added avocado slices and then had a plate chock full of Vitamin C. The chicken was cooked in coconut oil with Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy on top.
You’ll notice what was on sale this week; chicken! Tonight we had chicken breasts, roasted broccoli and then the kids had cheesy au gratin potatoes while I had another serving of broccoli 😉
