Today I made sure to read my reminders, and I kept on track with eating. I even stood up and moved around when I was reading reports (Remember NEAT). So my helpful tool for the day is definitely reading the reminders. If I do it in the morning, it feels like it sets my mind in the right frame for the day.
Breakfast was a funky monkey smoothie – banana with chocolate milk and yogurt with vanilla (yes – the chocolate sauce fits in within the Mayo
plan) and an egg, cheese and tomato sandwich.
Then for lunch, some leftover turkey “lasagne” and a salad with orange, broccoli and feta.
I went for my run right after work, doing 7 km today. I stopped ever 2.5 km to stretch and it makes a difference. But my legs still hate me. I noticed later that while my toes aren’t hurting anymore, the second toe on my left foot looks reddish/purplish under the nail.
After that I had more freezer leftovers – the salmon and sweet potato patties with lots of carrots and green beans.
For the heck of it I ordered the Atkins Starter Kit (which I refuse to link to) because they were giving away free protein bars. I had half of one for dessert. It was not too bad.
As for what I continue to find challenging – today I don’t feel challenged. Things went right.
