My Friends My Friends
Today I knew was going to be a good day
Because today I got a free tea.
Thank you UofG
Why can’t other main chains have cool cards like this? Timmie’s take note!
This Thinking Out Loud is full of emotions because I’m quite thankful for all of the love and support that I have been graciously given over the past few days. Amanda, here’s a big thanks heading your way for the link-up!
First off, thank you all for your kind words from my last post on my new journey. I have felt so much love over the past few days and that kicked off with your amazing and sweet comments. You are all so positive and I cannot say enough how much you all help to push me towards better places. You are part of my journey, never forget it!
Full steam forward!
I said earlier that I have to be my own cheerleader, which is true, but it’s nice to have a team of cheerleaders too.
Also on my side are my amazing housies who both were asking how I was doing all day yesterday when my meal plan really kicked in. I was so anxious about that first pre workout meal that I ended up distracting myself making breakfast for Rita.
It doesn’t look that scary, but for me, all I was thinking going into it that this is an additional plate of food in the same time I’m usually digesting my pre-workout oats and therefore I was going to be going into the gym too full.
But I did it. I ate it. And you know what?
I had a lot of great energy in the gym despite being kinda super tired as I woke up an hour earlier to try to squeeze 2 meals into a 3 hour window before my lift.
Plus I remembered how much I really loved the simple taste of bite of roasted chicken with a bit of mashed avocado and sweet tater. Like Thanksgiving!
Both my parents also contacted me yesterday to ask how I was doing…
I also have the support of my coaches FB group. They are all telling me that great things will happen.
So much love, so much love.
Also, getting positive affirmation from my coach always is a bonus!
I always say to never reward with food because that can make you have weird relationships with it, but sometimes food just tastes like a reward…
Craving for lobster….
So much orange…
Also something I learned yesterday,
Rice cakes aren’t actually that bad. Kinda nutty actually. Of course I buy good quality ones (brown rice is the only ingredient and they are organic), not the preservative and sugary white ones. And hey, topped with my salted caramel Diesel whey (made into an icing) and some nanner for hitting those protein and carbs post-workout on the go, they were actually not too shabby..
I had it all over my face (#StickyMess) but who am I trying to impress when I’m hangry and eating at the gym?
What is really bad…
Shooting back a serving of Greens first thing in the morning.
OMG. So bad. Pluggin the old nose is an understatement.
Finally, to end on a funny note
Random blurb from my biophysio class…
Sorry I had to. He’s comin for ya….
The antechinus is am marsupial that has so much sex, it begins to disintegrate…
Hmmm I kinda feel bad for these lil guys as they only last through one mating season (i.e. 2-3 weeks) but they are literally having sex 24/7 no joke, even when, as it was put, “they are dishevelling.” Some may see that as not being such a bad life.
Hope that made you LOL.
Happy Thursday my friends!
Oh and comment about what serious or more educational topics you want me to post about, I want to know what you want to hear about 🙂
Are you a fan of rice cakes?
