Weight training arms workout
Than my mom and I went to this health foods store near me, fairly priced and stocked with awesome. I bought rolled oats, 3 Chobani yogurts, 3 local yogurts (to compare and they were cheaper!), energy bars, rosemary balsamic dressing, 1 clif bar, Ezekial bread, feta cheese, and I think that’s it? All for $22! Very excited to start trying it all!
Lunch: we didn’t get back from the store til after one and I wanted to save room for my sister’s birthday foods so I had the cliff bar and 2 crackers with PB and raisins.
During the afternoon my sister, mom and I went on a 2 mile walk in the nature reserve near our house. Beautiful! and afterwards I refueled with 2 of the energy bars I bought-which are more like smallish cubes than bars? Maybe I’ll post a picture of one tomorrow.
Dinner: oxtail soup! sounds weird I know, but actually amazing.
Than a slice of ice cream cake and a cookie…which was actually an oreo cooked in regular chocolate chip cookie dough…amazing. Because you know even though I am trying to become more fit, eat healthier, I also do feel on special days I can eat what I want, so long as it’s in moderation. I don’t want to ever food shame myself again.
So that’s it. And tomorrow back to college and starting a new routine. Keep you posted!
Dinner: pasta with tomato sauce, cayenne, and cheese.
After Dinner: tea with honey, handful of raisins and almonds, than my sister gave me 5/6 more of her dark chocolate almonds.
You should also know I have this big awesome Camelbak waterbottle that I drink out of constantly all day.
For exercise my mom and I went on a walk through town and when we got back I did some intense yoga.
Tomorrow weights training?
Breakfast: oatmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins and almonds. The usual, I know I’m boring but yanno it’s just so damn good. Also a 1/4 piece of whole grain bread with PB and a cup of tea with honey.
Than my sister and I went to this local health foods store, so fairly priced, so many foods! I didn’t get anything today but I think I’ll go back tomorrow and just buy food now before I go back to school…
Lunch: minestrone soup with a couple wedges of a satsuma(?), it’s a citrus fruit, looks like a mini orange and it’s so sweet and juicy! Oh and 5 dark chocolate covered almonds, so good.
After Lunch my mom and I went for a walk in town, because it’s just so nice out today!
Came back and had 3 multigrain wheat thins dipped in PB.
try to hold every pose for at least 5 deep breaths
I have two blogs and didn’t realize which I was blogging under! O.O So that aside…now the related blog post. Sorry I didn’t post all day! But now its all in one post so maybe that’s better? Anyway here is the info: Breakfast: oatmeal (which btw I make with skim milk), raisins, almonds, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg. Weight training arms work out. Post workout Morning Snack: small piece of Tuscan bread spread with PB and raisins. Lunch: was at Michelle’s house so not my usual choices but everything in moderation, trying not to food shame myself for a change so I had: 1 eighth size slice of Digorno pizza, 1 1/2 bread sticks dipped in marinara sauce, 6 wheat thins, handful of potato chips with dip, 2 oreos, 1 bag of pirates booty cheese puffs, 2 glasses Arizona green tea, and 1 candy cane. Yes it is a long list. But I had small helpings of each. Moderation! So I didn’t feel stuffed. And drank lots of water to flush myself out. Dinner: so good. Cup up one avocado and put at the bottom of the bowl, laid a fried egg over that, a slice of cheese on top of that, and last added some salsa. Delicious. After Dinner: tea with honey, handful raisins and almonds. No shame. I moderated and did my best, ate healthy at home, and worked out. And tomorrow will be a new day and another chance to better myself all the same.
everyone is embarrassed of their fourteen year old self trust me if you’re fourteen right now you will regret whatever it is that you are doing at this moment
i’m fourteen and i’m already embarrassed by my fourteen year old self.
My sister just reminded me what I was like when I was fourteen…. I don’t know what to say…but I’m pretty sure at the time I thought being sulky and looking like I was tough shit was in. I really achieved neither.
Sierra Mountains cabin from reader Victoria Jarvis:
My family built this cabin in the backcountry of the Sierras near Donner Pass. It sits on Tuttle Lake named after the original members of the family who bought the land back in 1887.
