October Progress and Goal Setting!

So I would like to start this post off by saying…I fell asleep at 8pm, woke up at 10:30pm… … … and thought I had gotten a full nights sleep. UGH!! I hate my body/internal clock!! This is why I am on this posting craze :-p

So today I woke up early (I still have not stopped my alarm from going off at 5am……..) and decided to go to the gym! I was a little unhappy because I tried to do a RPM class (les mills spinning) and spent like 5 minutes on the bike before I realized that it was not going to work. It was hitting the irritated area of my sciatic nerve right on, so yeah I jumped off that bike real quick and ran out! I at least got to tell Mel (instructor) that I was probably going to do that and not to get offended. I would have felt so bad otherwise.

– p.s. if you are ever at the Vent Fitness in Clifton Park, there is a duo named Pam and Mel who are so much fun to take classes with together, and separately. They are really sweet and kind in person as well!

Back to what I was talking about! So I ended up warming up on the elliptical, stretching, then doing the stair climber (machines were making funny noises so I had to jump off and find something else again!- yeah I was frustrated), then I ran a mile. I promptly showered and went to work.

I also met with the trainer I am going to be working with starting in November. His name is David Byrd, and I just love his energy (he talks about energy a lot too). He highlighted my main issue…which is as I have said many times… —> FOOD bah!

I am going to go shopping tomorrow and try doing what he suggested. Prepping for a whole week on the day when I have time. It is very difficult for me to ensure I eat healthy because I am so busy, but I am going to just have to make some life changes and preparations to make sure I do. My #1 goal right now is to lose weight, then we can start working on my body.

Baby steps ❤

Just figured I needed to get serious about my health again, specially if I want to keep doing this blog :-p

haha… makes sense ya?

Yelping: Spot Coffee

So I just starting reviewing places on Yelp! Thought I would add it to my list of things I post on here also. Trying to make this a multitasking/multifunctional blog.

I like to cut my brussel sprouts in half. Them I take them and toss them in whatever seasoning I feel like (garlic mix here) with some virgin olive oil (any sort of healthy fat!). Then I broil them in the toaster oven till dark and ta da!

The chicken I just cooked and shredded, then added the chopped French green beans, chili lime seasoning, and a dash of pepper (ok more like vigorous shaking of the pepper…I like my pepper, don’t judge).

Yum!

Meal Prepping

I just started making this the other day!

My roommate says she loves it (or she is just lying to make me feel better :p)

Cinnamon and honey to taste

Chopped apple

Raisins

Steel cut oats

Just cook the oats as instructed, adding the cinnamon, honey, apples and raisins during the process (not sure if it matters when you add them, I am no master chef! I personally added them in the beginning.)
