Back home after a long time away. 7 days – 5 flights, 3 stops (including a short layover at home 🙂 ) and I’m happy to report I weighed in one lb lighter! I worked my hardest to stay on track while I was gone by picking options that were as close as possible to my nutrition plan, hitting the grocery store when I got to town, and exercising as usual. It wasn’t easy and it wasn’t always fun, but I did my best. I did have a couple of drinks while on vacation (because really – frozen rum drinks under palm trees is kind of necessary). But I didn’t go crazy – I mean literally a couple – one on Friday and one on Saturday. I was frustrated at times for sure – it’s not easy to drink a protein shake when your hubby is eating chocolate cake. It’s really really frustrating. But it was really nice to come home and see that through all that I managed to lose a lb.
So back home. I took this AM off from exercise because I was EXHAUSTED this morning. After sleeping in and sleeping on my flights and sleeping on the beach – waking up at 5:15 just wasn’t happening today. I think that’s ok – rest is as important as everything else. I’ll be back on Insanity in the morning and I spent last night grocery shopping and prepping food for at least the first part of the week so I could get back on it food wise.
I’m STILL struggling with the egg white and oat situation. I made a “oatmeal cake” and it just wasn’t good. I think I just will stick with egg whites and tortillas or oats with a protein shake. Eating them together in the ratios I’m supposed to just doesn’t work for me with the recipes I’ve researched so far.
