40 Day Challenge: Days 10 & 11

Here I am 1/4 of my way into my 40 Day's of Fitness Challenge and I'm still going strong...I think anyway.

Day 10 there was no workout. I ran some errands with the ma and pa and then we stopped at my old stomping grounds, Champps, for some burgers. I was ravenous with that juicy slab of meat, and those warm crispy waffle fries smothered in seasoned sour cream. Ooh, seasoned sour cream!

The rest of the days eats were as follows:
-Protein shake. Duh.
-The most boring lunch imaginable. Lettuce, carrots, dressing and a side of string cheese.
-Nature Valley Peanut bar.

Day 11 was out to sabotage me from the very beginning. Every year our office building hosts a tenant breakfast where they bring in food on food on food. Bacon, sausage, pulled ham, cheesy hashbrowns, scrambled eggs, oatmeal, A WAFFLE BAR!!  It would have been rude of me to not have a little of everything. Like I don't appreciate them letting me work in their building or something. THEN, after breakfast, one of the building engineers dropped off a platter of cookies, brownies and Christmas tree shaped Rice Krispie bars! First world problems. People forcing you to eat warm food and treats.

And this is what is sitting in the pit of my stomach forming a nice pot belly.
-Bacon, ham, 1/4 waffle, cheesy hashbrowns
-Christmas tree shaped Rice Krispie (Did I mention it was on a stick? That's very Minnesotan.)
-Salad. Lettuce, carrots, egg, dressing
-1/2 Cookie
-1/2 Chicken breast, heaping pile of green beans, sad small amount of my precious au gratin potatoes
- 2.5 glasses of wine (had to do a wine comparison so we don't serve bad wine at Christmas)

Before dinner I did manage to head downstairs and get some treadmill action in. 5 miles. It felt great. If I didn't want to get dinner going, I probably would have kept moving.

Weather Update:
Why the eff do I live here? It's 20 degrees warmer today. Yup. It's in the teens. Brrr.

  1. So you've just about hit the two week mark. Is it starting to feel like habit yet?
