Good morning to all of you and happy Tuesday! I am hoping that everyone had a safe and fun new year and that you all are settling into this glorious new beginning. This morning has started off fantastic, I just knocked out my first workout of the year and I must say it was fantastic! I love college football and as the games were playing I must have dozed off at halftime because I woke up at like midnight and my body was really wanting to get this first workout of the year in the books! My workout consisted of chest and triceps and even though I felt I pushed it, I was kinda on exploration mode this morning at the gym. I’m still fairly new to the layout and I found myself wandering around trying to see were this and that goes.lol The elliptical and I are back on great terms and we worked together for about 20 minutes of nice paced cardio. As you all know I absolutely love that machine and I actually look forward to cardio because of it!
Yesterday I had one of my signature obese salads with Romain, Green Onion, and Arugula and it was delicious, although I ran out of the homemade dressing so I’m hoping I still have the ingredients to bust out a few more batches later today! Of course, I followed the salad with my simple baked chicken and a tall glass of water. To be honest, I really only have maybe 4 or 5 things that I make over and over again, I’m pretty basic and simple with my Keto meals. The kids are back home from their dad’s and I’m so glad to see them; however. they were loaded down with all types of cookies and candy from the holidays with the other half of the family. I was like noooo! I felt like Kevin in that movie Home Alone.lol. Everything they brought home looked amazing and of course, loaded with sugar and I did all I could to look away. Ugh! It feels amazing to have their energy and enthusiasm back in the house, they just make the atmosphere seem better! O.k I have to mention that I fasted 20 hours yesterday and only had one meal, which is something I really try not to do because I don’t want to be malnourished or anything. I don’t know how it works for all of you but if I have too many days that I’m under a certain caloric intake I end up binging and we can’t have that!
I just wanted to share something with you guys that’s completely and totally off topic for me but Have you all seen Dave Chappelle’s new stand up comedy show’s on Netflix? There are two of them and they are absolutely hilarious. His comedy is certainly not for everyone, but to me, he has an amazing mixture of interesting topics and the punchlines are always on point! You should definitely check them out if you need a quick laugh this week. I wish you all the very best day possible and don’t forget that you are worth all the effort it takes to be the very best you can be!
