P90X day two and sore already!
I woke up this morning barely able to move my arms! I am still really sore – but it feels good.
Today was an awesome workout! Plyometrics! I love them… Jillian trained me well and I was able to do the whole workout without missing a beat. I did not have to modify at all. It kicked my butt and I still have room to improve, but it was good. I burned 741 calories.
Here is me after the workout – still smiling! I tried to capture the insane amount of sweat that the workout produced, but it does not really show up!
I planned on documenting all my food today in pictures like all the food blogs, but for two main meals I ate half the food before i remembered I was supposed to take a picture of it. I do not know how these girls to it!
Breakfast: a protein shake made with milk, strawberries, banana and protein powder. I was really good!
Snack: this is my recovery meal after my workout. A half of a Boost drink (delicious) and a half of a protein bar
Lunch was yummy – since I was supposed to eat 6 oz. of meat I had two small turkey burgers. and a big salad (the lettuce came from the garden!!!)
My salad and turkey burgers:
These burgers were delicious. However, as I was looking them up to link them back here I looked a bit closer at the nutritional data – each patty has 330 mg. of sodium!!! wow – this is something I am going to have to be more careful of on this program. Yesterday I had a chef salad with turkey and ham – again, a ton of sodium. I usually do not each so much sodium and do not want to start. I just didn’t realize these had so much in them.
I went to check on the garden and it is doing so great. I found two small green tomatoes on my Black Krim tomato plant:
After gardening and grocery shopping I was ready for a break and a snack. I had a protein bar and a glass of iced Yerba Mate tea. I also put in fresh mint leaves from my garden. I was very refreshing.
After this I basically lounged on the couch for awhile. I was too hot to do anything and I didn’t really have anything to do anyways.
Dinner time! Tonight I made grilled tuna, grilled asparagus and zucchini and a warm potato salad. The potato salad was good – just some boiled white potatoes with a light dressing of olive oil, vinegar and dijon mustard with fresh dill from the garden. Too bad I ate it before I could take a picture! It was a lovely dinner. Although, I have to say, 6 oz. of tuna is way too much tuna to choke down! I am just not a huge fish fan anyways. Of course, I could have eaten twice that amount of potatoes! I stuck to my appropriate portion.
OH – the best part… while grilling, especially on the weekend, I like to sip a glass of wine or a cocktail while I grill. Of course, that is a no-no for the next 90 days. Well, I discovered a really nice alternative. Perrier with lime – and an extra twist of lime. It was very delicious… almost like a vodka tonic… haha.
Here is me enjoying it while grilling… my and my Bobby Flay glasses – I love them (A wonderful Christmas present from my lovely daughter!)
All the self-portraits today are for you, Dad!! You said I needed more pictures of me, so here you go!!
