Last week I did well with the exercise but sadly my Great-Grandmother passed away. She was loved greatly and we were blessed to have her for 92 years. I won't provide an update on last week because naturally, exercise was not the priority.
This week however, I'm off to a great start. I ran yesterday for 50 minutes and today I started running for 11 minutes instead of 10 and ran for 33 minutes (a slow run).
My eating habits have been great. Except for a glitch last week, I'm on a roll (fingers crossed and praying). My meals have consisted of:
Breakfast: Smoothie (milk, banana, flaxseed and vanilla)
Post-Workout: Chocolate protein shake
Post-Post Workout: Bread (toasted) with peanut butter or Egg sandwich
Snack: Cup of green tea
Lunch: Soup or Sandwich and Salad
Snack: Yogurt with Pumpkin Seeds or Nuts and Cup of green tea
Dinner: Not so much regulated. Trying to eat more vegetables and fewer carbs. :)
