Off kilter, stood my ground
Good evening! I will try to keep today’s post brief. Day 12 started out on a good note, I decided to have what I call a purple rain. LOL. I like Prince, so I decided to see how many purple items I could put in my Nutri blast this morning.
Purple kale, purple grapes and blueberries (u know they turn all purple when blended). I threw in 10 raw almonds, flaxseed, Chia seed, and a banana just for a little sweetness. It was delicious! One of my favorites so far.
The morning went well, but by late afternoon I started feeling Cravey. Is that even a word? Well I just made it one if not! I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted, but I was not feeling my salad. I ate it anyway, and pushed through the feeling. I was dealing with some really stressful issues today.
On my steering wheel in my car, I wrote in red permanent marker “it’s only temporary”. That was my mantra until I got home. Both situations were handled nicely. I didnt roll my eyes, curse, or get my heart rate up! Yay for me. Watching that stress level!
Today ended up being a very beautiful and warm Arizona day. I couldn’t wait to get home to do my exercise. I decided on taking two of my three babies out for a stroll. My one baby is my toddler. My other baby is my new Trek bike. That was a gift to myself last summer. I have wanted a Trek for a while, since I had begun to get serious about cycling up until I found out that I was pregnant almost 3 years ago! With our surprise baby. The day before my positive pregnancy test, I did a 15 mile which was the longest ride I had never done, and I loved it!
The contraption on front is a wee ride. Lets the tot ride safely between my arms in her own seat.
Glad I stuck to my guns… Look at my 1 hour 2 minute calorie burn…
So. I’m going to keep on keeping on. Day 12 ended on a good note as well! whew! How was your day?
