Day 3 year 2011
It was me against coffee this morning.
It was hard.
I love caffeine.
9 a.m. big mug of green tea with 1/2 a lemon
10:30 a.m. 1 frozen banana, 1 container blueberries, 2 slices honeydew melon, 1/2 head dark green bib lettuce, 1/2 small cucumber, 1 tsp glutamine, 1 tsp Spirulina, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1 tbsp psyllium, ice and some water
Blend until smooth
After I took the picture, I changed my mind and replaced the orange with a banana since I planned to go to the gym.
This made a yummy shake!
3 p.m. large mug of green tea with 1/2 a lemon
3:15 p.m. 1 container blueberries, 1/2 cup 1% cottage cheese, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 2 tbsp Kabocha butter.
I ran almost 4 km, biked 10 minutes then did some lower back and abs. Today is 30 degrees celsius in Sydney and it may have been 35 degrees in my gym 😦 I don’t think I’ve ever sweat so much and am just now starting to cool down (2 hours later).
I really needed some protein (cottage cheese) for tired muscles and carbs (blueberries) for glycogen replacement after that workout and I knew that a veggie shake just wasn’t going to cut it today.
I’m starting to feel a definite decrease in my cravings for both sugar and carbs. By late afternoon I’m usually thinking of bread, oats and anything else that is a carbohydrate but in regulating my sugar intake with nothing but fruit and veggies along with much more liquid than normal, I believe I am controlling my insulin levels.
You know, I completely forgot today was New years eve?
Not that we had big plans but a friend of Steve’s did stop over and I had 2 glasses of red wine. Along with a bowl of bran buds and goji berries.
I know. I’m outta control.
The year came in with a bang!
Not in my house but somewhere I’m sure.
Here’s to good health and happiness!
