No Insanity

Workout : Legs & abs at the gym. I didn’t realize, but I hadn’t worked with free weights in about 6 months. I did a quarter of what I normally would do and I’m already dying. I’m so pumped to start “two a days” and get my ass back. Also, I’m officially on payroll as a personal trainer :) Now if only I could get a hold of my first client so we can start..

Food :

Breakfast : Rushed to work, ate like 4 or 5 strawberries and 2 sips of nasty soup

Lunch : Pad kee mao and a glass of sweet tea

Dinner : Turkey sandwich with spinach, onion and provolone and watermelon !

BTW * I weighed myself today for the first time in months. I was a little disappointed to see 128. I’ve gained a few pounds. But it’s funny because when I look at myself in the mirror I feel like I’ve lost weight. I love my body! And I’ll love it even more once my abs poke through.

Insanity Day 13 : Pure Cardio & Cardio Abs

Workout : Can’t lie, I kinda half assed it today. I only did the warm up twice and did my own stretches before and after. I’ve also decided to just wait and do Cardio Abs tomorrow on my “rest” day. I have had absolutely no energy lately. I feel like a sloth and today has been a long day..

Food Diary :

Breakfast : None (I didn’t wake up till lunch time)

* I realized when I woke up this morning that I was out of food. Especially breakfast food. So my baby brother and I walked to my mom’s work to borrow her car (I just recently moved home from Portland, OR so I’m currently without car) so I could run a few errands and go get groceries. Of course, before I even got to the grocery store my mom’s car broke down in the ghetto of Memphis nonetheless. My brother and I sat there for a few hours before my mom showed up with her mechanic friend. So I finally got to eat lunch around 4:30. *sighs*

Lunch : Vegan curry tofu and a cookies and cream ice cream sandwich (go ahead and judge..)

Dinner : A small portion of my mom’s broccoli casserole with an Abita strawberry lager ( I wanted a drink after this long day. )
