I have to admit, that felt pretty good.
Today I'm focusing on the top three things that made me smile.
1) Working out with mrC. His schedule has been pretty light recently, so we've been able to do this Faster program together. Not everyone has a spouse for a workout partner, so I know how lucky I am. Being able to do the workouts together definitely makes it more fun and we motivate each other.
Week 2 Regular Calorie day 2 - the workout
Warm up - we did our usual thing and walked to the fitness center
Strength training - it was upper body day today. I have to modify some of the exercises still because my shoulder is still healing (I hope). I'm getting the hang of knowing what weight to use, but today I killed the triceps exercises. Pretty sure I'm going to be a little sore tomorrow.
Cool down - we took this literally and went to our happy place (see #2 below)
Week 2 Regular Calorie day 2 - the meals
Broke fast 11:30 - 2.5 scrambled eggs with ham and Bob's Red Mill gluten free pancakes
Lunch - 3 turkey roll ups, red grapes, celery with hummus
Snack - peanuts
Dinner - salmon patty, green beans, sweet potato tots and a salad
Snack - greek yogurt with some chocolate sauce
2) Going to the pool. I have always loved the water, loved the beach, loved the pool. I really love cooling off in the pool after a workout. This pattern got started when our expat adventure began in Dubai.
3) Pedicures. A friend recommended a salon (one that I had walked by dozens of times and not noticed) and I recently tried it for myself. I had a manicure the other day and today I got my toes done. Don't you love the way the hot pink pops against my leopard Sanuk flip-flops?
Tell me something that made you smile recently.
