The run wasn't a failure by any means, considering how tired and headache-y I felt. I played around with the speed every .5 mile or so:
0-0.5: 6.0 mph
0.5-1: 6.5 mph
1-1.5: 7 mph
1.5-2: 6.5 mph
2-2.5: 7 mph
2.5-3: 6.5 mph
3-3.5: 6 mph
3.5-4: 5.5 mph
So my graph looked like this:
I was happy to get THAT over with. Onto today's eats!
I had a three hard-boiled eggs before I left for yoga this morning (post to come).
I think I'm really sick of omelettes and quiches and scrambled eggs, because these eggs were AMAZING. They were SO, SO, SO GOOD.
Some more gross celery pictures, because you know. And YES that is the same plate I used to eat my eggs on... I know, I'm a monster.
So... let me explain. Tonight was the first night JW and I weren't gonna be able to have a South Beach Diet dinner together, so we had to fend for ourselves. I had no idea what to do for dinner and was feeling pretty down about it last night, until the brilliant idea struck me that I should have a Chipotle salad! It was perfect for Phase 1, if I just left out the corn!
I straight up ate the rest of the guacamole straight from the little cup they serve it in. First with a fork, and then I decided to screw it and clean it off with my finger. Yep! Not ashamed.
I was amazed that this kept me full! All the way through Snowflake Lane, in fact! I immediately felt better and my headache went away after eating that salad. It really hit the spot. Score!!
Then, I came home and had a hodgepodge (another fun word) of a dinner:
|I couldn't get a decent picture of it by itself, so here I am. You're welcome.|
Then I ate this leftover piece of salmon from when we broiled it two nights ago: lemme tell you, it was just as juicy as the first night! Yum!!
Since I really wasn't feeling another salad, I came up with the idea to make a kind of tuna salad, but with Laughing Cow cheese. I'm basically a genius. (I'm obviously not bc this is the most basic idea ever)
So I created a dip - 5 oz of tuna, the last third of my avocado, and 1 packet of Light Queso Fresco & Chipotle Laughing Cow cheese (I couldn't even taste it!). I sliced up the last third of my cucumber (amazed that I went through this as well!) and since I can't eat carrots in Phase 1 (RAGE), I just made the cucumber act like my carrot, and dipped it into the mixture. It was delicious!!
I've had 12 grams of sugar today. On a typical day, I'll eat anywhere between 50 and 100 grams of sugar. !!!
I feel SOOO much better tonight than I have the past two nights! :D
