***Quick tip: Instead of using the penny method, I check to see if my scale to weigh myself is accurate by putting one of my 3 lb or 5 lb dumbbells on it. If it doesn’t show the exact weight of the dumbbell then I’ll know how much it’s off by.***
For breakfast I kept my fruit salad simple and left out the pistachios. I added a small touch of black pepper to the salad today. For a drink I had oolong tea. I’m just going to start adding it to my breakfast from now on and see if it benefits me at all.
- 1 cup of romaine lettuce
- 1 cup of strawberry halves
- 1 cup of chunky mangoes
- 1/4 cup of raisins.
- 1 cup of baby spinach
- black pepper
- 2 cups of oolong tea
After breakfast I took a little nap and got up to exercise, I did the 3 mile walk again for 45 minutes on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYuw4f1c4xs. I had some issues with my tv streaming youtube so it took a good 40 minutes before I could get the workout started. Tomorrow I’m just going to use the dvds I have of Leslie Sansone even though I don’t like the new stuff I don’t like wasting time with the technical issues.
The 3 miles today was actually hard I to get through but mentally I kept myself up. Afterwards I didn’t feel as much of a burn as I did the first day of the week. I don’t know if I’m getting stronger or maybe the video was too easy for me. But I’m not going to worry about it. I’m going to keep up the 3 mile exercises for the next few weeks and just rotate between Leslie Sansone videos because she has so many I could probably do a different video every day if chose to. If I reach a plateau or feel I’ve mastered the 3 miles, which ever comes first, and it’s time to move up I will. For now it’s just all about making this apart of my schedule.
Lunch was perfect! I finally mastered how I like my tuna! I added the celery back in since I figured out it was the dijon making it uncomfortably spice and chopped it up into small pieces so it wasn’t too crunchy like before.
- 1 can of Starkist Tuna in water
- 1 tbsp of Hellman – Mayonnaise
- 1 boiled egg
- 4 slices of delightful multigrain bread
- 1 stalk of celery
- 1 banana
My goal is to eat dinner before 8pm and that’s it for the rest of the night. I made dinner while I exercised. I cooked the chicken breast in the oven and put 1 tsp of coconut oil on one chicken breast. (I also made one for my mom). I used one 1 tsp of coconut oil to cook the vegetables on the stove and added an extra stick of celery to it just to use it up so it doesn’t spoil on me. I already had the rice pre-cooked.
- 1 boneless chicken breast
- 2 tsp of coconut oil
- 1 half bell pepper
- 1 whole onion
- 2 sticks of celery
- 1/2 cup of rice
I had 3 bottles of 16.9 oz Aquafina. 2 cups of oolong tea.
