Yesterday felt good. Just laying it all out there for myself was cathartic. I'm still not 100% sure what my decision or plan will be going forward long term and I'm okay with that. It will come.
I made some great choices yesterday. I avoided the department that housed the peanut butter brownie pizza. I ate my yogurt with some fruit while most everyone else had cupcakes. And I made the decision to pack for CrossFit even though
1. I had already gone 3x this week. (But I had only gone twice a couple of weeks in March, so I had some sessions to spare.)
2. My accountability partner person texted me right before I went to sleep that she wasn't going. (But that didn't mean I shouldn't!)
3. The scheduled workout was ridiculous. (I told myself that I just needed to get there and even if I did a 1/4 of it, that was better than skipping.)
Then I sat down and planned out my meals for today. I NEVER do that for Fridays. BFF & I spoke and decided on Rockfish for lunch and Joe's Crab Shack for dinner.
Today's Nutrition Plan:
Breakfast: coffee with cream (x2), 2 boiled eggs and 1/2 chicken burger patty (I only had 1 egg the rest of the week, but yesterday I really struggled with hunger. I'm debating eating just one at breakfast and having the other later if I do get hungry.)
Lunch: Rockfish healthy menu, cup of gumbo, scallops, new potatoes & asparagus.
Dinner: Crab legs (yum!)
If I can stick to this plan, it will be one of the most successful Fridays I have had in a long time. You know what else was a success? Last night's sleep. I had 94% efficiency which is super awesome for me.
Today's Fitness Plan:
CrossFit: Check! I scaled the planned workout to 21-15-9 Thrusters 55# & Burpees. I finished in 12:10. It was brutal even scaled (to just over 1/2). I was so impressed with the people that were doing it all (21-18-15-12-9-6-3). Amazing.
I don't want anyone to get the impression that I'm upset or giving up or anything of that sort. I'm just trying to find the balance I want and be realistic about what I can reasonably expect from my efforts.
