Hello my loves! I am so sorry for being MIA but I was not feeling like myself for the last couple of days and instead of being a Debbie Downer on my blog, I decided to just take a step back. Thankfully I snapped out of it and I feel much better.
This morning I woke up and had a Banana before heading to the park.
My feet and legs have been in pain ever since last Saturday when I walked a mile in my Ugg boots but I could not take one more rest day without going crazy. I honestly think that NOT working out had something to do with my bad mood for the past couple of days. I headed to the track and tried to run but it was so painful so I had to mix it up with walking. I ended up only doing 2 miles run/walk in 25 minutes and a nice looooong 10 minute stretch and burned 423 Calories. I then came home and continued to stretch with my Foam Roller for another 20 minutes and burned an additional 137 Calories.
GREEN MONSTER CHALLENGE
I decided since the weather is getting warmer, I will start a Green Monster Challenge. For 1 month I will replace at least one meal with a Green Monster. I was going to wait until Sunday to start the challenge but why wait?
This morning for Breakfast I had a Green Monster made with Spinach, Strawberries, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Light Muscle Milk, Coffee, and Splenda.
Do you want to join the Challenge????
I am not sure if some of you guys remember but I gave up Protein Cookie Dough
I MISS YOU! and Meat for Lent. I am happy to say that it has been one month since I have touched either of these things. Not eating meat has been easy for me especially since I finally saw Food, Inc last week and it just put everything in perspective for me. I don’t want to say that I will NEVER eat meat again because I don’t know what the future has in store for me but for now, I am enjoying this lifestyle. I know there will be a time when I probably will want a piece of steak or a cheeseburger but that will not be an every day occurrence.
I am off to ice my legs and feet! Have a great day loves….
