For today, all I could think was "We're almost half way through the challenge!" Wow time flies when you're having fun. I have been pretty bad with my food intake lately, but I have been going strong on my workouts even when I wasn't really feeling it. So while I may not end up with a six-pack, it's not really my goal either. My goal is to be strong.

I loved the day 13 workout. Those shoulder tap planks are now one of my favorite moves I think. At first I preferred Melissa over Rita, but I think Rita is really beginning to grow on me. I love that her workouts are more traditional strength training moves. I can slow down and really concentrate on working the muscles. Plus, for some reason she reminds me of my step-mom :)
I didn't have to make any modifications today which is actually amazing. The last time I tried to do the side lifts it killed my back and I couldn't do them. I'm now able to do them from my elbow!
Coffee with a table spoon of grass-fed gelatin. FYI... gelatin is not sugar. Someone commented on one of my previous days asking why I had coffee and sugar for breakfast. Gelatin is an easy way for me to get more protein into my diet and also helps to lubricate joints which I think has been helping my back.
Kale that Converts Salad with some rice and lamb korma
Rib-eye steak with green beans and mashed potatoes (not much because I didn't like them), and some lobster/crab/artichoke dip with pita bread. I also had some of my husband's truffle fries because I'm a sucker for anything that has truffles in it!
