I got in a light, upper body workout today. I have been limited on what I can do, but adding in some real bench press, and other free weight exercises, feels so good mentally. Even though I don’t consider myself an athlete, I do realize how much I miss the basic satisfaction of lifting weight. I hope to keep making progress on healing tieback, and get keep getting stronger as the weeks go on.
Breakfast: A big bowl of parsnips and gravy. A couple handfuls of Banola. Then about an hour before gym, a nice slice of leftover Chicken Carbonara casserole.
After gym snack: I made a riff on the coconut smoothie recipes I’ve been making from the 21DSD book – Coconut Chai smoothie. As usual, I added a scoop of Vital Proteins collagen peptides to up the protein. Had this while I started my adrenal training!
Dinner: Mexican stirfry bowls (this is a go-to weekday meal for us, with just about any variation) – protein, onions, peppers (any other veg that needs to be used up) and some broth and chili spices. Served on cauli rice with a crunchy salad for me, husband added rice and beans to get him enough calories. Avocado for both of us!
Daily Steps: It’s about 6:45 right now, and I’m looking at ~8400. Should end up over 9k, at least, even with sitting for studying. Progress!
