Weight Loss Journal: Day 22

by - 10:38:00 PM

Hello there lovely people!
It's Thursday and I am awaiting this bitter sweet Friday. On one hand, it will be a much needed Sabbath and on the other my poor baby will be having surgery tomorrow afternoon. I have been praying it will go quick and he will recover even quicker.
So, if you could keep my family and I in your thoughts and prayers they would be greatly appreciated!

So here is how Day 22 went!

I felt like I needed to pick up slack after Tuesday and yesterday. So I ran my mile and did 15 minutes on the elliptical. Then I hit the weights and focused on my arms and shoulders. I did ladder style (up then back down) sets. And right now, my arms are super sore!

Breakfast- Oatmeal
Lunch- Tuna, crackers
Snacks- Greek yogurt topped with Annies Oat Flakes
Dinner- Baked chicken and rice with homemade salsa
Snack- Phat Fudge performance food

Today was the first day in a long time where I felt totally unmotivated, but as soon as I hit the gym, I had a rush of energy. It's weird trying to explain it. My body felt like it had never skipped a beat and it was actually performing better due to the rest I had yesterday! 

My goals have been seeming a lot more maintainable since I started resting one day a week. I have been able to run faster and for longer periods of time which for me is a huge deal! I have always struggled with running even though I enjoyed it. My legs just couldn't go fast! I think my thighs were slowing me down lol.

What do you have planned for the weekend? Let me know in the comments below!
