Ouch. I forgot those muscles existed.
I may have only done one set of reps on each of those machines yesterday, but I still feel it today. Leaves me looking forward to my next workout with weights -- and grateful that today isn't the day I have to do it!
So - about last night. My challenge was dining out, and a limited menu. My plan was portion control and drinking lots of water.
Outcome: mildly successful
We ended up having more choices than I expected at this complimentary 3-course dinner at St. James Gate in Bethlehem. I chose the tossed salad, grilled salmon with asparagus and a potato hash, and apple pie a la mode for dessert. Dinner included a complimentary cocktail, and since it is an Irish pub, I chose a Harp....and a tall glass of water.
Everything was delish, which made the portion control incredibly challenging -- however I did leave a couple bites of the salmon and potatoes, as well as the dessert. I know I could have done "better" and I probably should have skipped the Harp, but there was just something about an icy cold beer in an Irish pub on a steamy hot summer day (and the fact that it was complimentary) that just made me give in.
No regrets. I savored every bite, and more importantly, enjoyed a night out with my mom.
Plan for the Day: Restorative Yoga at lunchtime with some of my girlfriends.
Challenges: Oppressive heat is sucking the life out of me
Plan to Overcome Challenges: Stay inside as much as possible. Drink plenty of water.
No Excuses Rule du Jour: Just do it!
Note to Self: Remember to eat throughout the day -- don't let yourself get hungry.
Ready. Set. Go!
