*So I decided to deviate from my personal goal today about using the word-prompts to write my #30WriteNowWriting Challenge blog posts and just count this post towards the challenge*
As you can tell by the picture above, I wasn't too pleased with my weigh-in this morning. I went to my designated weigh-in location and I went down 1 pound. So I've decided today I need to start a Food Log to see what is going on. I'm wondering if I might be working out too much as well as still not getting in enough calories and wonder if my body is going into a protective mode. I still enjoy my NutriBullet and make my drinks in the morning yet I'm wondering if I need to add more to my breakfast.
|Yes I know it looks disgusting, it's Baby Spinach, blueberries, mango, strawberry protein powder mix, and water. Believe it or not, it actually tastes good;)|
This past Sunday I went to Sioux Passing County Park and must say it is a nice area but I do wish there was a dedicated trail for walkers and runners. I had to share the same area with cars, not something that I enjoy.
But there was a nice 1/2 mile trail through the woods that I did enjoy and it had me close by the Missouri River. By the time I was out of the trail I was near an area called Pelican Island and I must say the view was quite beautiful

Also this week I've been reading up on weights and strength training but I think I will have to look into a personal trainer because the last thing I want to do is hurt myself by pulling any muscles the wrong way. I remember some of my old exercises from a few years back that I used to do on different machines with a previous trainer but I need to make sure that I'm able to do them correctly and not waste my time.

As far as my eating goes I'm seriously looking into a method called the Paleo Method. I do love my veggies but I also love my meats as well. My friend Trenton had informed about this method a few years ago, and I've been looking into and I think it would help me in regards to my eating habits. It wouldn't be drastic for me and I know I would have to make some adjustments. Yet I know there is no way I could ever go vegan. I'm sorry for all those PETA lovers, but if a chicken tried to cross the road I would have to do my best to catch that sucker, and as for red meat and seafood, they are fair game as well. I do enjoy a nice juicy steak and don't get me started on Lobster, Crab Legs, and Shrimp...Good Lord.
I will say I have learned from this is that my endurance when working out is lasting longer, not as much as I would like, but I am a work in progress. I've noticed I can do more modified push-ups now than I could do a few months back. Lemon squeezers are also another biggie that I enjoy.
P.S. - I thought you might enjoy this. This morning while at work I happen to be in our kitchen which is behind the main office area where I work. I saw this on our table and had to take a double take.
Now call me crazy but I don't recall baby spinach, especially organic looking like powder puff donuts.
