Today has been pretty awesome 👏🏾 if I do say so myself. I have been 100% compliant and I feel great for it. No tea or coffee, purely green tea and water all day AND two work outs back to back!!!
So how did I manage it? Well I guess I kept myself busy at work so I didn’t get up and walk round the office and I think also the most critical thing was drinking a lot of green tea (20oz at a time) keeping me fuller albeit practically in the bathroom every hour it seemed.
I tried to make chia seed pudding for my alternative breakfast from eggs but it didn’t solidify overnight as it should. I followed a recipe but the top was still fluidy. I still ate it though with some fruit. It looked like frog 🐸 spawn though…. all slimey but to be fair tastes alright. I didn’t think it would actually hold me till 9:30am but after dilly dallying, trying to find something to wear I was late into the office and by the time I settled in it was time for my nuts and fruit.
So yeah – I’m feeling pretty awesome now and pleased with myself.
I was on fire in the gym this evening – there’s nothing like pushing it. Still not able to use my legs so I modified the workout with arms only rowing and push ups instead of step ups. On the 2nd workout I changed to straight leg sit-up instead of push ups. I completed the workout in 16:40 for the first session and 16:43 on the second! I don’t know what came over me but I felt so great after the first session I was like – yeah I can do this again – so I did and surprised myself. I guess it all boils down to recovery.
Protein shake and a magnesium bath and meditation when I got home. Iced knee and the final meal at 9:30pm. It’s debatable whether I needed the last meal as it’s late. But i like a hot meal and it wasn’t big literally no more than a cup of food – roasted squash and aubergine with chick pea curry. Just enough to give me that warm fuzzy feeling inside.
So that’s it. High fives all around 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 (I know they’re high-10s!) boom 💥!!! 👊🏾👊🏾👊🏾
