Day 22- Relax and lift some weights!!

Day 22 on this Journey and I am feeling good. I was going to rest today, but I just felt like I needed to get out and do something. Plus the only way to make the scale move, is to put the work in :) Let's take a look at today... shall we? :)

Breakfast- Greek Yogurt with blueberries, did a small cup of coffee and lots of water today. 
Lunch- Ate a salad with small pieces of Bacon, and sharp cheese grated up. I used raspberry fat free vinaigrette dressing. Also had an apple. 
Snack- Cashews
Workout was late today because of work but I went to the gym, that is two days in a row!!1 Today was shoulder/ cardio day:

Shoulder Press 4x12
Monster Set:
3x12 Front raise with dumbbells (neutral grip)
3x12 Side Lateral Raise
3x15 Bent Over Rear Lateral Raises
4x10 Reverse PecDec Flies
4x12 Upright Barbell Row

4x12 Tricep extensions
3x8 hyperextension
3x8 suspended knees pulled up to chest. 
Moto for today :)
Also did 15 minutes on the treadmill and 50 jumping jacks. Couldn't jog today but I walked at a quick pace for the entire time to try and get my heart up. 

Dinner- Ate some corn chips with my homemade fresh guacamole- I loved this, it was so rich and filling!!! Quick recipe is 3 ripe avocados, diced onion to taste, a little bit of salt, lemon juice and a little garlic powder. I am doing the no wheat for another week and tacking on sugar as well. Two at a time :) No Dairy week is next so look for that :) 
Snack- Had some popcorn that was air popped, a little bit of salt while I watched a movie with Alan. 

Overall I felt like it was a pretty relaxing day even though I still worked out. Felt like I ate well and took care of business :) Look for another post tomorrow! Hope you all are having success too! 

Love yourself always,

  1. Hey Corinne!
    I saw your post on facebook and thought I would show a little support. I know these kinds of quests can be extremely trying. :)
    I have a lot of really easy, no diary, clean-eating recipes if you would like some for next week. Just drop me a line on facebook or something and I'll type them up for you.
    Best of luck, lady!

    1. I would love any recipes, suggestions etc on eating clean. I make some small exceptions right now but I am mostly on vegetables, little fruit, nuts, and lots of lean protein. YUM :) Let me know any sugestions!!!
