Build Muscle, Not Excuses

Hello Friends! Well today was day 3 of my 60 day program and I of course woke up feeling sick.  I was dizzy, sick to my stomach, sore throat…the whole shabang.  I was super bummed that I may not be able to get my workout in.  Luckily after a ton of water and my Shakeology the dizziness and stomach issues subsided. By 5:00PM when I got off work I was down to sneezing, runny nose, and sore throat.  I could have EASILY used my head-cold issues as an excuse to lay on the couch and not workout but I wasn’t about to let this cold or allergies (whatever it is) get the best of me.  I drank my pre-workout and got busy and I’m so glad I did. I honestly feel so much better now.  Autumn kicked my butt as usual but I’m already feeling stronger and call me crazy but I’m actually looking forward to sore buns tomorrow 🙂  Sore buns = tighter, stronger buns…and who doesn’t want that?!? Fingers crossed that I wake up feeling 100% in the morning.

Meals Today

M1: Chocolate Vegan Shakeology with 1/2 banana and 8oz water

M2: Grapes and Organic Light Mozzarella String Cheese

M3: Tomato & Cucumber Salad with EVOO and Balsamic and a Small Cup of Chicken Noodle Soup

M4: 1/2 of the Tuna Boats from yesterday

M5: Leftover Extra Lean Ground Beef from last night, Asparagus, and a Cabbage Salad with EVOO and Balsamic.


Note: Everything in me wanted tomato bisque soup for lunch but broth based soups usually have 1/2 the calories and fat as creamy soups.  Most soups (unless homemade) have a ton of sodium so they are not always the greatest of options but a small cup of broth based soup is a good way to fill up with less calories than other options.
