Day 2 Food/Exercise Log

My cover photo features this amazing dip that I threw together for snacks one day at our house and it was a big hit. We like to slather it on veggies, pepperoni, doesn’t matter, it makes everything taste better, except for cupcakes….I don’t recommend using it on cupcakes…

Without much ado, today I did another fitnessblender workout and let me tell ya, my legs are so sore from yesterday, I feel like a drunken sailor walking around…or peg-leg-pirate. Just the less violent version…But, today was upper body which is what I love about their program, they mix it up so that you aren’t killing the same group of muscles multiple days in a row.

Once I get my jogging stroller fixed I’ll be slowing my run down just a little bit more with 2 little munchkins in tow. There is something awesome about jogging with the stroller throughout the week, then going stroller-free on Saturday. It makes me feel like a super hero lol. I’m free! I can fly!!!

I hate to be monotonous here, but doing the same basic meal structure for morning and snack (ergo I end up finding something I like and do it over and over). If you like it, it supports your purpose, then why follow some complicated meal regimen, just do what is maintainable.

Yesterday I started reaching ketosis where my body is finally producing ketones and will soon be using them and the good fats that I eat to burn for energy instead of carbs. You can read about the MAJOR health benefits of the Ketogenic diet (very similar to Paleo) here. I bought these ketone strips that help you determine when your own body begins to go into ketosis. The only thing is, you cannot rely solely on these, after a while the ketones in your urine will be used for energy, therefore you will not “pee” them out, you will hopefully use them! So only use these as a guide or gauge for finding your body’s progress, then once you are in the groove of eating right, put them on the back shelf.

Sooo, today:

Breakfast:

water and supplements

coffee, whipping cream and honey

2 eggs cooked in a tbsp of bacon grease, 1/2 haas avocado, sea salt and 3 slices bacon

AM Snack: (I usually try not to eat a morning snack, but today I wanted some chocolate!!)

1 Chocolate Peanut Butter Fat Bomb

Lunch:

Leftover Chili w/ tbsp of plain coconut yogurt, 1/4 cup shredded cheddar and 1/4 avocado + lime wedge

Black Cherry Zevia (oh, so good!)

PM Snack:

1 cup celery sticks

2 tbsp Italian Cream Cheese Dip

1 slice Boar’s Head Pepperoni (sandwhich style)

another cup of coffee prepared same as above

Dinner:

1 bowl Ground Chicken and Spaghetti Squash LoMein w/ mushrooms

1 cup Steamed Broccoli

Dessert (if I feel like it)

1 more fat bomb

 

I’ll get the recipe for that Italian Dip up here soon, I could just wear that stuff…I’d probably be pretty popular!

If you see anything here you want expanded on, let me know. I haven’t done my Spaghetti Squash LoMein recipe yet, but it’s yummy. It has toasted sesame seed oil, mushrooms, carrots, green onions, etc…

Finally, I have a goal of drinking a minimum of 80 oz of water a day and am at half day and half water as of right now. Have a good day and don’t forget to share with healthy-minded friends who look for motivation!
