I am sure this is not my first post where I have stated how much I dislike Mondays. But man do I dislike Mondays!! Today was no exception. I woke up an absolute allergy mess and did not want to get moving despite the fact that I set my alarm for an hour earlier than usual! I did eat breakfast which I have been trying to do. Just instant oats with protein but hey I actually ate breakfast which for me is impressive.
I have had a lot on my plate this past few weeks and have let it slack a little when it comes to diet. I start off every week strong and with good intentions but I get stressed and overwhelmed and I let it go.
I need to work on my self control. I am feeling weak that way lately for sure. I was good today I ate healthy all day. I have rediscovered my love for watermelon and feta cheese. I ate it all last summer (during peach season I added those) and its such a yummy refreshing snack. The sweet and salty combo is my fave.
So today I got in a mood and couldn’t decide if I wanted to skip CrossFit or not. I am so glad to say I didn’t and I was glad I went. It was a great workout and I felt so much better after it. My mood was totally different. I love that feeling. I found this quote inspiring.
I came home and made a healthy dinner of meat sauce on broccoli slaw instead of pasta and had more watermelon as dessert. I packed a healthy lunch for my looooooong workday tomorrow.
One more thing: I have discovered something that I love but fear all at once. Chocolate cream cheese! I haven’t tried it before bc I knew I would regret it and love it. But my chiro was telling me about how yummy it is and how it is better for you than Nutella. Soooo I bought it. And OMG it’s delicious. I had a tiny spoonful of it for dessert and am desperately trying not to go back and eat the rest of the container.
Now I need to get back to being lazy on the couch watching “come dine with me”. Happy Monday!!
