Today I ate eight servings of fruits and veggies. Well, technically 6 veggies and 2 fruit. This is a big deal. I try for at least 5 servings a day. Normally I can do 3-4, 5-6 on a good day. So when I counted everything up today I was pleasantly surprised. Here’s the breakdown:
Breakfast – smoothie with blueberries and spinach.
Lunch – quinoa, shrimp & chickpea salad with sweet peas, corn and cherry tomatoes
Dinner – chicken stir fry with green pea pods, red peppers and broccoli.
I also had dried cranberries in my protein bar snack but thinking that probably doesn’t count. And speaking of workouts…I got my butt kicked today. I did the 1st 30 min of a spin & sculpt class and then attempted a workout from PB Fingers. It was so hard! I wasn’t able to do the full weight for deadlifts (I did 30lbs), squats (I did 50lbs), and I only did 15 reps instead of 20 on my last set of ball hamstring curls. I’m not normally a quitter but I thought I was going to get a charlie horse. So I’ve made a goal to do this whole thing by my birthday which is in 2 months.
