OK the oatmeal was NASTY â€“ maybe the most disgusting thing I have ever eaten in my life. I am not going to be able to eat that daily, so I reached out for other suggestions and got a few goods. I tried a recipe last night, will be eating it shortly and I sure hope itâ€™s better! I canâ€™t imagine it being worse! LOL -
The ground turkey was also horrible, I mean the flavor was fine with the rice and Veggieâ€™s and Mrs Dash, but it was SOOOO day, how can people eat that? I donâ€™t know â€“ I think I may have to say good bye to the turkey and hello to more fish chicken and pork (all of which I love). I mean who was I kidding, I hardly like turkey on thanksgiving and even then is covered in Salt/Pepper and Mashed Potatoes, what doesn't taste good that way?
Am I complaining alot? I mean I am just trying to be honest. I would eat Tacoâ€™s EVERY SINGLE DAY if I was allowed to so YES this is a HUGE change for me. I know there are going to be things I donâ€™t like (as mentioned) and there will be things I do like. I was surprised at the egg whites, and today I canâ€™t wait to eat my Brown Rice Cake with PB (I am going to slice up an apple to top that with too) â€“ and last nights dinner of tilapia was seriously delicious. I am struggling with my greens though. I canâ€™t get the broccoli down, and green beans will get old fast, but I will switch that up with Asparagus to get a little change day to day.
My 1st real temptation last night â€“ Buffalo Wild Wings â€“ everyone around me was eating fried foods (Mozzarella Sticks, OMG my weakness) Beers, Cocktails and BDay Cake, and there I sat with my Veggie Boat (not gonna lie, I did have a little Fat Free Ranch with my Veggies) and water - I had an apple in the car before we went in and I was actually looking forward to my tilapia dinner so it wasn't too bad. It was nice to catch up, I hadn't seen this group in sometime and talking about my journey and getting their feedback and support and questions was awesome. Itâ€™s nice to have something to talk about now, I mean for so long I did NOTHING. Like seriously, I was Bâ€™s chauffeur, I had no hobbies, no interests, no activities (other then sitting on the couch, and thinking about when it was time to eat again because I was bored out of my mind) so now I could engage in conversation and have something to talk about that people wanted to hear. I could connect with people on a common thing. It was pretty nice. My friends Mom hugged me as we said good-bye and told me she saw how strong I was being and she was proud of me. Thanks!
I still donâ€™t have my protein shakes and vitamins, hopefully soon though.
So I did more prep last night, Chicken Fajitas, Oven Baked Chicken, more Brown Rice and Pork Chops (as well as the Oatmeal recipe noted above) -
I am pretty dang sore today, I can feel that Tuesday workout in my upper body and back with each movement. But as I told my friend Tina, I am going to relish in the soreness, it is a physical reminder that I did something awesome for myself!
I talked to Abe yesterday, we might get together and hit the batting cages this weekend, heâ€™s a pretty busy so I ain't gonna be heartbroken if he flakes, but I think whether he goes or not I am going to the batting cages. I LOVED playing softball and I think itâ€™s time I swing that bat! Stress Relief and something physical. Yep Iâ€™m gonna do it.
There is a cheer competition this weekend and B is filling in on a team. She hasn't had a spot in a routine since coming back from her injury so this will be her 1st time actually taking the floor with a team this season. I hate missing that, I donâ€™t want to. They work all year to take the stage only a dozen times, but I told B I wasn't sure I was ready to skip a workout with George and put myself in a convention center full of hot dogs and candy and soda. She told me she thought I should stay home and get more into my routine. I just hate not being there for her, I am the only support system she has for the most part, now that my Mom is far away and canâ€™t attend every event with us. I will have to ask my Bestie to step up and love on her a little more and support her and all the rest of my cheer mom friends. I know she is concerned about the little time sheâ€™s had to learn the routine and tumbling she will be required to do but itâ€™s what she loves and she wants to be on the floor, under the lights and doing what she does. I will be rocking a Cheerforce Tee during my Saturday workout with George! Plus we have an event in Palm Springs next weekend. Itâ€™s the biggest best and favorite of the season, I will not miss that, it will be a true test for me after a very short time. Luckily Jamie will be there (if sheâ€™s healed) and we can workout and I will pack my cooler with all my prepped meals and snacks!! I should call the hotel to make sure they have a microwaveâ€¦â€¦
Tonight Chuze with H, I canâ€™t wait to see her and catch up. I am trying to get Bestie to goâ€¦.we will seeâ€¦..
PS â€“ Funny how the littlest thing can set your day â€“ loved my little motivating text from my â€œMom Crushâ€ this morning!
