I feel like a cheater today… I forgot to put on my vest. #IMaxedOut at 11:02 today! I was at 8:52 last week. Goes to show you how adding that extra weight is helping my performance when I don’t wear it. I ended up putting my vest on after I maxed out and definitely felt the difference in all the movements. The plus side about doing Cardio Challenge today is that it’s the last time I have to do it! Next week kicks of month 2 and that means a whole new set of workouts, scary!!!
My nutrition the last few days has been sort of unorganized. I’ve been eating clean foods but I think there’s been a few too many carbs involved and hummus, yeah I really like hummus. Hummus is good for you but definitely is small amounts. It’s made out of garbanzo beans and olive oil, so it has protein, carb and oil all in one. The warm weather we have had makes me want cold foods. Been eating a lot of fruit too. So it’s back to meal prepping because I have 4 weeks left to drop some body fat! So grateful for the clean eating group this week because my brain doesn’t want to think, it just wants to eat 🙂
One more thought
Ever since having Damien I’ve been allergic to watermelon, cucumber, cantaloupe, honey dew, anything melon related. I’ve been pushing my boundaries this last month and I haven’t been having any allergic reactions. I’ve never broken out in hives when I eat it, just get an itchy throat and my lips start to get swollen a bit. Funny the only thing that made me sick during pregnancy with him was melon. I’m not eating a whole melon to myself or anything but I have enjoyed a dish of melon and this dish with a cucumber and pineapple salad. I can’t help but wonder if cutting out the dairy and meat has helped my body not be so on the defense. I wonder if it’s helped settle it down. I really LOVE melon, so I’m really hoping I’m no longer allergic. I used to eat it as a kid and have seed spitting contests with my cousins on the family farm(good memories) and I’ve been missing out for the last almost *gulp* 14 years… Can’t believe my boy is going to be 14 next month!
