Weekends and I Don’t Get Along / Day 49-52

Day 49

Nick and Jill got married today! The whole shebang was pretty amazing. I’m so happy for them!

Breakfast: Three eggs, baby spinach, green onions and mushrooms.

Snack: Banana and half an apple with peanut butter. Got a new jar just in time.

Lunch: Cup of pumpkin soup and the rest of the apple with peanut butter. Didn’t want to eat too much since I knew I’d be indulging in lots of food at the wedding.

Dinner: At the wedding we started off with an amazing fall salad I forgot to take a pic of. The main meal was fried chicken, a piece of steak, baked sweet potato, cornbread and some green beans. All extremely delicious.

Also drank a ton: two gin and tonics, a big glass of white wine and two strong beers. Don’t think there’s anything better than an open bar at a wedding! Had such a blast dancing my butt off. Bad part: had a headache before the night was over. Reminded me why I don’t like to drink too much in the first place.

Veggie of the Day: mushrooms

My day was completely packed so this didn’t happen.

Neither did this.

Day 50

ONE. MORE. WEEK. Honestly, I can’t wait for this to be over at this point.

Breakfast / Lunch: Eggs, baby spinach, green onions, mushrooms.

Snack: Apples with peanut butter and almond butter, carrots and hummus and a banana. I also made paleo pumpkin muffins but they definitely needed sugar. We ate them with butter since they were so bread-y/savory.

Dinner: Spinach salad with chicken, pecans and pomegranate seeds. Pumpkin soup on the side.

Veggie of the Day: carrots

Fish Oil: 1000mg

WOD / Active Recovery / Custom Workout
30 minute run at an easy pace.

Dynamic and static stretches before running.

Day 51

Last day with Pete and Hat. Boo.

Breakfast / Lunch: All points gone in one meal, but what a meal it was. Everyone gathered together at Bel Loc Diner to send Pete and Hat off (not sure what’s up with their reviews but I love that place). I went nuts and ate French toast with butter and syrup, regular toast with butter, and lots of eggs and bacon. And coffee with creamer. And sugar.

Snack: Ate a couple muffins from yesterday plus some Halloween candy and Girl Scout cookies (had to try the peanut butter ones – I now see why everyone loves Tagalongs) during the Ravens game. Also drank two beers. Felt a little guilty but I’m pretty much falling off the wagon at this point. Close friends plus weekends equal food craziness.

Dinner: Once Pete and Hat were gone I had leftover chicken and cauliflower for dinner to somehow make up for eating so poorly.

Veggie of the Day: cauliflower

Static stretches during the game.

    Despite the weekend slip ups, youre still amazingly consistent! I’m particularly impressed with how you do tabata (almost) every day and mobilize. Have you noticed any results from doing fish oil? Also, I just watched this movie, “Hungry for change” http://www.amazon.com/Hungry-for-Change/dp/B009KBQNGA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1352777290&sr=8-1&keywords=hungry+for+change The description and reviews make it sound totally vague, (“Is this about veganism, paleo, raw food..?”) but you should really watch it! Despite feeling fairly informed, I feel like it was still pretty interesting! It just speaks of food culture and how integral diet is to life.

    • Haven’t really noticed any change with the fish oil, but I still take it everyday even though the Challenge ended last week (I’m behind on updates but I’m gonna try and catch up tonight).

      And thanks for the movie suggestion – just added it to my Netflix queue!

      Just wanted to follow-up on this comment from 657 days ago:

      I still take fish oil pretty consistently and I’m not sure if it’s made a difference, but my blood work always comes back with flying colors so maybe it’s doing something.

      I also still haven’t watched that movie yet. Sorry! I’m so bad at movies.

      Looking forward to doing the Whole Life Challenge yet again this fall. Let’s see if I can keep up with making posts again. 🙂
