30 Day Challenge | Pamela: Day 11 & 12 – Freaky Friday Switch

Day 11

My day 11 I happened to have a friend from high school visiting the island so I swapped my day 11 and 12, and took a rest day for day 11. I was still pretty active, we went to the aquarium and walked around, and then we did a little shopping. So I was on my feet most of the day anyway... yes, shopping counts as active rest if you do enough of it :)

Food Log

Because we had friends visiting, I definitely ate some food I wouldn't normally splurge on. We went to two restaurants that are pretty well known here on Oahu, Rainbow Drive In, and Dukes Waikiki. Both were delicious. Even though we ate out, I still tried to watch what I ate and the only think I really splurged on was desert, and even that we split 4 ways :)

Breakfast

Coffee with a tablespoon of gelatin and a banana

Lunch

Kale salad that converts and a few macadamia nuts

Snack

Half of a Hawaiian mixed plate (I tried to stay away from the mac salad and rice as much as I could.)

Dinner

Coconut shrimp, spinach salad, Monchong with a spicy ginger glaze, Spanish rice, a glass of wine, and coconut bread pudding with vanilla ice cream.

Day 12

Today I amazingly woke up with my alarm clock, and still very tired. I'm going to say it was the food I ate yesterday, or perhaps the wine. Whatever it was, I wasn't really feeling like working out, but I pushed through and got it done.

The workout

Modifications

My back has been feeling pretty good lately. I'm not sure if it's the supplements I've been taking, or if it's from the daily exercise, but whatever it's from, I'll take it. I still try to take care with exercises I know are not good for my back injury such as the roll backs after the burpees. I skipped those all together. I also didn't have any room for the walking dragons and so did reptile push ups instead.

Day 11

Food Log

Today was back to my regular routine, so my food is more on track

Breakfast

Coffee with a tablespoon of gelatin

Lunch

Kale salad that converts

Snack

Banana, a couple macadamia nuts, and a pickle (I really have a thing for crunchy zesty pickles!)

Dinner

Indian food. Vegetable samosa, lamb korma, butter chicken, naan and rice (I'll be limiting my portion size so that I have plenty of leftovers!)

The Numbers

  • Number of days I’ve worked out: 9 out of 12
  • Number of minutes spent working out: 199
  • Number of days with no junk food: 8 of 12 (I've been trying to keep my "junk" food to just one meal on the days that I do have it. Also, my definition of junk food is anything with grains, alcohol, or full of sugar)
