This is the first morning in a while where I didn't want to cry at the thought of getting out of bed.  :-)  I'm still stuffy and my body isn't ready for anything crazy, but when I woke up, I felt better than when I went to bed.  PROGRESS!!! 

My immediate thought was, "I should go to CrossFit tomorrow!"  Heh.  I might need to back off a little and hold off for that next week.  But no matter how bad I feel, I still feel lazy if I don't work out.  But I'm walking at lunch tomorrow, so that should make me feel better.  The weather is cooling down...maybe I can get myself to do some walking this weekend before jumping into CrossFit craziness on Monday.  That sounds like a good plan.

Goal check:
  1. Food - I followed My Fresh Diet yesterday very well.  I will get into it more in a bit, but other than the meals made for me, I only had a few nuts and tortilla chips.  It isn't ideal, but it is a start.  Going from vacation eating to 3 small meals and 2 small snacks is tough, so I feel I did well.  If I can do the same today, I will be happy.
  2. Work out - I addressed that above.  Nothing yesterday or today, but I have noticed a tremendous difference in how I feel, so I'm getting there!
  3. Water - I drank 80 ounces of water yesterday which was a bit shy, but I will take it.  Going for 100 today!
  4. Organizing - I get a big FAIL here.  I was so tired when I got home last night that I did nothing but sit on my butt and watch TV.  Well, I guess I did read a bit too, but still.  I'm hoping that since I feel better today, I will have more energy to get some things done.

Fresh Diet

Let me just tell you how WONDERFUL the food tastes.  That was my biggest concern, but I feel quite confident that while I might have things I like more than others...I'm going to be able to eat what they make for me.

Yesterday's breakfast was just the best.  It was basically eggs with salsa and cheese and it was fan-freaking-tastic!  My salmon lunch was good, but salmon isn't my favorite, so it doesn't get an excellent distinction.  :-)  My dinner was an Asian salad and it was really quite good.  I was surprised because the ingredients didn't seem flavorful (lettuce, bok choy, alfalfa sprouts, & chicken) but the dressing made it really tasty!

Fresh Fruit Salad with Apple, Red Grape, Grapefruit,
Pineapple, Honeydew, & Blackberry Ricotta Cheese
(I'm a little concerned that the lack of protein will make me hungry earlier...we will see.)

Stuffed Chicken Asiago & Tarragon with Whole Wheat
Linguine Pasta and Roasted Red Peppers

Afternoon Snack
Avocado & Cream Cheese Stuffed Baby Tomatoes

Greek Salad with Bulgarian Feta Cheese, Cucumber,
Grape Tomato, Romaine Lettuce & Basil Vinaigrette

Apple Cinnamon Cheesecake

Today was the first time in a while...before the Olympics...that I didn't have to struggle putting on my favorite jeans.  They are still tight and I have a long way to go, but I feel progress.  So, I'm excited to stick to my plan today.  It is so much easier knowing that it is going to taste good!!

I'm so glad the food was good. It would have been awful to spend all that money and have it taste like cardboard!
I'm doing enough organizing today for the both of us, so rest easy. Closets and drawers galore over here!

I'm glad you are feeling better.. nothing worse than going ON a vacation with a sickness and then coming back with it as well!!
Rest UP and don't overdo it sister!

The food sounds delicous!

Don't look at the organizatinal goal as a fail. You're sick. You need to get well before you can tackle some stuff. :)
