I woke up with my motivation tank on E. I tried REEEEEEEEaly hard to get there...but just couldn't muster up any enthusiasm about exercise today. After a busy morning and with only a few minutes to spare, I MADE myself get on the elliptical. My intentions were to do what I'd done the day before (20 minutes doing 1 min. intervals) but it was the most miserable thing. I was HATING every minute of it and I was thinking thoughts like "I DESPISE exercise. I resent it...It's taking me away from my life. I'm so busy either 1)exercising 2)preparing food 3)thinking about exercising or preparing food or 4) showering from exercising that I don't have time for anything else." I decided that I was just self-destructing with all those negative thoughts...so I got off and did Ab Ripper and called it a day.
Eating was not much better either.
I had Kashi Go Lean cereal (major fiber and protien) with a banana and skim milk for breakfast.
I went out to lunch with my buddy Teya and had a small bowl of tortilla soup with 1/2 a chicken panini sandwich and 1 bread stick.
For a snack I had 1 small apple with 1 tbsp. peanut butter
For dinner we grilled LEAN top sirloin steaks, had a small baked potato with NO butter, 1 mini-ear of corn and a salad.
For dessert we had a (big ) bowl of light banana pudding (made with sugar free pudding, skim milk, light cool whip, reduced fat vanilla wafers and bananas)
I felt like a bloated pig when I went to bed and I HATED it. Here's hoping tomorrow is WAY better!
