Laura’s 21 Day Reset officially ended yesterday. Congrats to those who participated. I would love to hear what you learned from the reset.
I started the reset 2 weeks late, so this past week was week 1 for me.
Week 1 in Review:
I got 4 workouts in. I did not get any runs in though :(.
and that is where the workout ends. Later in the week, my daughter and I would get sick and be totally wiped out!
Using the Racing Weight Cooking Book, I created a great week of meals.
-nut butter and banana toast;
– Hard boiled eggs and toast;
-Chocolate/Banana/Peanut Butter Shake;
-5 minute burrito;
-Bean, corn, cheese quesadilla;
-tomato, beef, florentine soup;
-chipotle chicken avocado wrap;
rosemary (I changed this to ginger)garlic chicken
-turkey & pepper over rotini;
-beef & butternut squash hash;
-steak with charred corn salsa
The recipes were super easy to makes and super yummy! I made enough to last me the week and I ate the last meal last night for dinner…PERFECT!
Things I noticed:
-Being trapped in the house during a blizzard makes it really hard to stick to the eating plan set. Even though I had delicious food prepped and ready to go, the lure of snacks in the house were too hard to resist. I didn’t do too badly but snacked a bit more that I wanted;
-Even though I had no where to go (thanks Blizzard of 2016), I should have gone to bed and gotten up at my regular time. My workouts were really hard because I was working out much later in the day and while the kids were up and demanding my attention;
-I need to be more mindful of the timing of my eating. I am shooting for eating every 3 hours as well as listening to my hunger cues;
-I need to be less distracted while eating. I need to focus on eating. I noticed that I start eating a meal and it takes me almost an hour because I try to multi task and I am not focusing my attention on eating;
-I need more protein with my meals. I was finding I was getting hungry too quickly between meals. This week, I will add a few more oz of meat to my meals;
-Following a recipes to create meals really isn’t that bad. I have always stayed away from recipes, feeling like I just wouldn’t be able to stick to them and the food taste good;
-I had forgotten the many ways to get healthy carbs in my meals. Sweet potatoes are god but they sure can get boring very quickly
I am looking forward to some more good meals this week, continued change up in my workouts and getting out for a run. This is #selfcare
