wow guys. last week I was completely overwhelmed. I haven’t been that stressed in a LONG time. I was pulling my hair out half the time but at least i’ll be getting a lot of overtime this week. Phew. I hope this week is a lot more calm. Since I had such a crazy week, taking pics of all my food didn’t really happen. I happened to grab some shots but wasn’t as diligent with it seeing that I was so busy I didn’t really have time to sit down and enjoy my food, just had to eat it while I was still working.
I spent kinda alot of money on food last week. I should have been more prepared, but I was never sure how long i’d have to stay at work past 5. This led to two whole foods trips to the hot bar, which I can’t complain about too much, but my wallet didn’t really enjoy it. My fav thing I found from whole foods was definitely the general tso’s vegan chicken. oh man this was amazing, and personally i think tasted better than real chicken! DELISH. One day was an asian day on the hot bar, the next a bbq theme.
On Saturday I finally got to relax and enjoy myself and went to Wine in the Woods in Columbia. This is an annual event that I’ve never been able to go to because I was still in school or wasn’t 21 yet. Well, this year I finally went! It was held at the concert pavillion by my parents house, and its in a wooded area so its perfect for events. There were about 20 wine vendors there and I met up with some of my friends and had a blast. The weather worked out perfectly and didn’t rain until we were leaving. Later that night I went out with my friend Britt and had a great time. So happy to finally relax and enjoy myself after a stressful week!
I got in a few runs over the week and also shredded, but i have an update on the 30 day shred.
I’ve been trying to do my best to listen to my body lately. I want to figure out what works and what doesn’t, and push myself but also reign myself back in when something isn’t working. I REALLY wanted to do the shred all 30 days. I missed 2 days this week, and made up for it by doing jillians 40 minute no more trouble zones dvd. Also though, when I missed the shred by run the next day was SO much more enjoyable. My legs didn’t feel like lead and they actually felt great. I’ve realized that I need diversity. When I did the no more trouble zones I loved the fact that I was doing somethign different. I know that the 30 day shred is an amazing workout, but I was getting used to the workouts and 10 days per level was just getting to be the same old. I want to surprise my body and do things that it doesn’t expect. I also believe that my legs will do much better if I take a day off here or there. I’m sad to say that I won’t be completing the 30 day shred. I feel like i’m wimping out and just quitting in a way, but I know that I’m doing this to make my body feel better. I am going to change things up, do lots of different dvds, go running more, because thats what I enjoy. I love experimenting with different programs and videos, and want to keep doing that. I will DEFINITELY be doing the shred still, but just not the 30 day program. I belive that its an amazing workout for just a short 20 minute period that I want to do if I don’t have more time to commit to my workout. Thanks for listening to my ramble 🙂 and thanks for your always continued support.
Lots of food for you guys! I will just post all the pics bc writing out descriptions for them all would just make this the longest post everrrrr. I’m back on the bandwagon and will be regularly posting again now that hell week is over!
Love you guys and now i’m going to finally get to comment again and bring down my google reader… this thing is about to break its so full!
