Wow! I can't believe we are already on Day 18. It really seems like we just started this a few days ago!
Today went Great! I have had an OVERabundance of energy today. It's like everything yesterday was missing...I got back today. Weird!
We got up at 4:45 am to do Legs & Back this morning but saved ARX for tonight (which we just got done doing). This evening, we had planned to take the kids out somewhere...maybe a movie or a rodeo or bowling..but instead we ended up staying home and playing baseball and tag and doing cartwheels all over. I can't believe it...but I can still do a pretty decent cartwheel! It's only been--oh...probably 15 years since I've done any! Anyhow, after all that fun, Matt turned on the radio in his truck and we boogy-ied like no-ones business! I'm talking---we were GETTIN' DOWN! Brooklyn has some GREAT dance moves and I was pretty much just trying to copy her! She has definitely got the rhythm in this family! We probably danced hard and strong for a good 30-45 minutes. I was pooped when that was over...well for a few minutes and then I was ready to go again. I'm telling ya, I don't know what's gotten into me today. Maybe it's the Diet Cranberry Limeade I got at Sonic this afternoon? Maybe there was a shot of something *stronger* in there!? I know I might as well have been drunk tonight because I danced my booty off and I'm sure the neighbors thought I was NUTSO! I was laughing so hard I almost fell on the ground several times. Plus, it didn't help that I was picking the kids up and spinning around with them in circles until neither of us could walk anymore. All I know is that is the most fun and the most I have laughed in a looooong time. If only there were more of those kinds of nights.
Anyhow, we also did pretty good on our eating too. This was our menu for today:
Whole wheat english muffin, egg white, FF cheese, turkey sausage with recovery drink (1 scoop)
Snack: 1/2 of a Peak Performance Protien bar, water
Lunch: Left overs from last nights dinner. YUMMMO!
Snack: Other half of the protien bar, Diet Cranberry Limeade from Sonic. YUMMMO!
Dinner: Egg-white omlet (bell pepper, onion, tomato, cheese) with 3 turkey bacon, 2 slices of light whole wheat toast with water.
Snack/dessert: After we finished dinner, I was totally NOT satisfied, so I ate 1 cup of Kashi honey almond flax cereal with a banana and skim milk. After that I was good to go.
Drank LOTS of water today.
