Week 4, Day 4 and a confession

by on Apr.03, 2014, under Damon, DDPYoga, Evie

Slept really well last night but woke up a bit groggy and off balance.  Struggled a bit with the Energy! workout today from a balance perspective.  Made it through it though and feel good.  Evie and I switched mats to see if her mat would be anymore comfortable than mine for the exercises requiring I go to my knees.  It was better but I think I’ll have to invest in something better still.

Last night I had planned to have a buffalo steak, but wound up doing something totally different.  While I was at the store I decided to make shrimp since Evie isn’t a fan and wouldn’t be home.  Different plans were made though, as I forgot the shrimp at the office (I had bought it on my lunch break) and then when I got home I was informed that it was Spirit Night at Spring Creek Barbecue, benefiting the school.  The kids wanted to go so I figured I would get some meat and veggies and be good right?  Well, when I was in line I couldn’t resist and ordered up a Chopped Baker, which is a baked potato with brisket, sour cream, butter, cheese and bacon.  They also had fresh rolls too.  The potato wouldn’t have been so bad except for the copious amounts of fat dumped on it with the cheese, sour cream and butter, plus it broke the food combining rule of carbs and proteins.  Adding to the mix was the roll, which I’m positive wasn’t gluten free.  While I don’t have a gluten allergy, we have been trying to avoid foods with gluten in them.  I will say I regretted it immediately afterwards.  I felt stuffed and bloated and gassy afterwards.  Not sure which part of it did it, but I definitely felt the bleh after.  I won’t be doing that again.

This morning I had a doctor’s appointment at the office and had breakfast in the cafeteria.  I had an omelette with peppers, onions, mushrooms, spinach, ham and cheese.  Yummy and filling and pretty healthy.  I was planning to go to lunch with co-workers today but nobody is here so I’m not sure what I’ll do for lunch yet.  Dinner tonight is taco salad/nachos.   Not sure which one Evie is making.  I think the difference is taco salad has lettuce and beans in it.

Tomorrow is our rest day and then we have Fat Burner on Saturday and Below the Belt on Sunday.  We’ve got a pretty busy weekend planned so we’ll have to get our workouts in early, but I may not have time to blog the update.  I will try to get it in if I remember.  Have a good weekend!
