Today’s Workout: 1 hour at the gym, whatever I feel like doing when I get there.
Uh-oh… see a problem with today’s meal plan? I can’t go 6 hours without food between lunch and dinner! I guess I should have waited longer to have lunch. Starting my day so early really makes meal planning in the afternoons more challenging. I’ve already had too many almonds today, so I’ll pack a few dry-roasted edamame in my purse for a light snack after the gym at 5pm.
Lunch today is a recipe from the book – Pineapple Avocado Tacos. I would never have thought to combine pineapple, avocado, and feta cheese in a tortilla, but it was pretty good. However I much prefer the flavor of a flour tortilla instead of corn, so I’ll sub that next time.
Dinner will be a repeat – Stuffed Peppers. I opted for chili and grilled cheese for dinner last night, so I need to finish up the peppers tonight. I don’t think I’ll be making those again since they were definitely not my favorite.
I’ve also decided to start over on the 5-day Fast Forward next week. I was looking over my calendar and that seems like the only week with very little going on to distract me, plus I could really use the extra kick to get back on track. I will have been on regular food for 2 weeks, so I think it’s safe to start over. I’ll spend those 5 days researching the recipes in more detail and also putting together some substitution meals for Phase 2 (part 2) so I’m not constantly searching for something to eat without the time (or motivation) to make a recipe from the book. I actually kind of liked the brainless meal-planning with the 5-day program. I didn’t have to wonder what I was eating or how it would affect my body, and this time around I’ll know exactly what to expect. Strange… I’m kind of looking forward to it.
