30 Day Challenge | Pamela: Day 21 & 22 - Small Plate Method

Day 21 I was actually sick, so I skipped it. I had planned to do a warm up video that also included a bit of a workout, then a 5 minute kettle bell workout and then Tiesha's yoga, but since I've been sick for a few days, I decided to skip day 21 and go straight to day 22 to try and catch up.

The workout

Today's workout was a great workout to jump back into working out. The moves were easy yet still provided a good workout. I was definitely sweating at the end of the workout. Find the workout video along with a workout breakdown and warm-up/cool down videos for day 21 here and day 22 here.

Modifications

I didn't need to do any modifications for my back, just for still being a bit weak after being sick. I just took my time and concentrated on the movements. Even with taking it easy, I still worked up a good sweat.

Food log Day 21

Breakfast

Coffee with a tablespoon of gelatin, and a small bowl of oatmeal

Lunch

Thai coconut soup with rice (recipe here)

Dinner

We had dinner at my in-law's place to celebrate my birthday and they found a really good Mexican restaurant that delivered (it's incredibly hard to find good Mexican food in Hawaii). We had 7 layer dip with chips, stuffed jalapeno peppers, steak quesadilla, chile rellenos, rice and beans, grilled mahi-mahi, and some red wine. I know that sounds like a lot, but my in-laws employ the small plate method and always use salad plates instead of dinner plates when we eat. So, instead of piling a 10 inch dinner plate full of food and overeating without even realizing it, we use 7 or 8 inch plates and don't pile the food up. For desert, we all shared a piece of mud pie cake and had a small churro.
