Day 6 of 21 Day Challenge: Shark Week Is Upon Us

Well, really, shark week is upon ME and I can already feel my ovaries shouting their protest. So far I have not cried irrationally or binged on chocolate (although a chocolate avocado smoothie is definitely in order). I’m really just hoping that I can follow my own advice and stay fit this shark week. Even though all I want is bread and cheese and chocolate and jujubes and everything bad for me, and a snuggle.

Modifications:
  • Free weights instead of the bar, backs of two chairs instead of an equalizer
  • I alternated between high knees and clean & press, mainly because I’m a total weakling, so I do want to try to focus on building some upper body strength
  • For the scissor toe chest press my lower back started aching half way through so I switched to bicycle abs.
FOOD: An oatmeal banana morning muffin and tea, then for second breakfast (yeah, second breakfast, really not helping to detract from my hobbit image) I had a chocolate avocado smoothie, add some coconut milk and that guilt-free chocolate mousse recipe becomes a smoothie. BAM. For lunch I had a delicious helping of Vegan Indian Curry (although the recipe calls for tahini, which I don’t have, so I substituted equal parts sesame oil and peanut butter). For dinner I had more curry with brown rice, because it was tasty, and I was far too lazy to make anything else. THOUGHTS:
  • WHY DOESN’T ANYBODY LOVE MEEEEEE? (Alright, not really. But kind of. Ugh, hormones)
  • I kind of missed Lisa’s British sass yesterday, (although I really liked the workout, it was a nice change of pace) so I’m glad the sass was back in full force today.
