Where to start…
This post will be mostly filled with pictures so here it goes.
this morning were the rest of the almond/ flax pancakes I made like a week ago plus the Yoplait Greek yogurt. I know it’s not part of Dukan but I hate wasting food!
was delicious sushi (and the legit kind with actual Japanese people making it) at this place near my house called Miya Sushi. We pretty much go every week. Well… my mom does.
There were also (unpictured) miso soup, asparagus and mushroom…thing, eel/ tamago roll, green tea, and a teeny tiny fruit dessert bowl that they serve to everyone after they’re done eating. I shared all this stuff with my mom, but needless to say I was stuffed.
veered completely off course of the Dukan diet. I have no idea what happened. I thought I’d be good today. I bought myself a Muscle Milk and that was going to be my post workout since I got off at noon and was going to workout afterwards. Well that didn’t happen. I ended up staying longer and this was staring at me the entire time.
If you can see, that is animal crackers, Red Vines, fruit jelly things, cookies (Smore’s Gold fish and Knott’s Berry Farm raspberry shortbread cookies), and a shit load of Nutrigrain bars. I know none of this is good for you, but it started with thisTimes like 3 and then just escalated to handfuls of animal crackers, like 10 shortbread cookies, 3 fruit jellies…yea. It was BAD. I definitely had a binge episode and I have no idea how or why it happened. I’m wondering if it’s because I was jet lagged… I don’t know but I don’t want it to happen again. Even when I got home I was still hungry and snacked before dinner. Needless to say, it’s embarrassing I can’t control myself. I’ll try to eat healthier tomorrow since I have a full work day (9-4 at one job, 5-who knows when at the other).
I’m happy I got to work out today though. I did a shoulders workout of the Jamie Eason phase 2 plan and did 30 minutes of interval cardio split between the treadmill, stair mill, and elliptical.
Like I said I started meat eating! Here was the first meal at Crocker Barrel (of all places, haha!) 3 eggs, tomatoes, and turkey patties.
Proof of finishing.
I’ve heard stories of people getting stomach aches after a long time of eating no meat and thankfully that didn’t happen to me. I did feel oddly light headed after eating the turkey patties but I have no idea if that was just because we had gotten like 4 hours of sleep and come in that day on the plane.
Like I had said in this post, people in the south give a shit load of food after a loved one passes.
FYI, these pictures are not from the same day. The desserts are grouped with the different food days though. Southern food.
Amish red velvet cake….mmm.
Even more food.
They pretty much cook with bacon grease, but it was amazingly all good. And I had more than my fair share (being on my monthly present didn’t help my ravenous appetite either) of both food AND desserts. My family can cook fo sho!
Every morning my sister and I would go out running (one day we actually went to a YMCA and did a chest workout though. The gym was small but interesting!) Not gonna lie though– most days I felt like crap and I’m pretty positive it was because of the delicious food. The humid air didn’t help so much either. Some of the days I would fuel myself with pre-workout grub.
Ever tried this? I’m actually surprised they have this there.
Here’s that one crazy cardio workout I told you about yesterday that I made up.
I pretty much wrote down every cardio move I could think of and made sure I got to 15.
Warm up/ active stretch for 10 minutes
Then do each move for 1 minute each
- jumping jacks
- tuck jumps *
- mountain climbers
- oblique crunch jumps (idk what to call it)
- high knees
- butt kicks
- jump rope
- star jumps *
- twist jumps
- jump touch (not really sure what to call this either)
- plank jacks
- jump lunges
- squat jumps/ squat jacks
10 minute cool down walk
The * denotes that we actually did jumping jacks instead. We were too groggy and my sister’s knees were hurting. Whoops, we’ll try again later.
Not much to say here except that we were extremely sad to leave our family….
And this stuffed, once alive gator in this glass tank outside a gas station and its convenience store.
And actual Dairy Queen restaurants! Not ones in malls. The ride home however, I will not miss. I sat next to this big, burly man on the plane. I had to swerve my body so I could sit around him. That’s not a problem. It was his SNORING. Omg I have never heard someone snore that loudly in a plane ever! Within 1 minute he could knock out and just snore. I didn’t sleep.
Don’t know if you noticed my nails, but I painted them because my 10 year cousin wanted me to. They are “fuzzy” textured nails (they just look that way, but are hard)
From far away they look cute, but once you get close it’s not really pretty.Everyone keeps joking around that they’re ugly, but hey! I like that they’re different. Therefore I am not taking them off :).
WOW this was a long post but I’m glad to finally get that all out of the way. Thanks for reading… if you actually did.
