Today we had a rest from the grueling ab workout of yesterday - I can assure you that the workout Melissa had filmed for us was NOT EASY. Half way through I screamed and cried (Well you get my drift).
It was a killer.. It shattered me and I went to sleep at 11pm and didn't wake again till 8am. 9 hours sleep for me is UNHEARD of.. I usually average 4-5 hours per night.
Today is a day of rest for those poor abs (even if it hadn't been a rest day I couldn't have done it again- abs are in agony today..)
So on Mel's advice I kept my posture in check today and walked tall and proud and went for a long walk with my very heavy toddler in his pushchair, up and down hills.
Day Two thrutheblue.me/2011/11/02/stay-woke
My food today has been as follows:
Breakfast- 30g of porridge oats mixed with hot water and topped with 1 sliced banana
Snack: small handful of almonds (No more than 10 or so)
Lunch: Humous and celery sticks + 1/2 a whole grain pitta containing lean ham slices & 1 boiled egg.
Snack: Raw radishes & a couple of chicken slices
Dinner as pictured
Spinach / Beetroot / Goats cheese saladThis salad consisted of:
baby corn sliced
topped with seeds
Afterwards I had a 0% fat active danone yogurt. And I made sure I drank 2 liters of water today although today I had sparkly water as I prefer it to still.
This was a very yum food day and when I have felt the need to snack I have eaten raw veg!
So far so good and I am now "excited" to see what tomorrow brings x
