First up, today is my rest day. Hallelujah! As I am getting back into running I have been fearing the morning after (a run). It is devastating if you wake up the next morning and something doesn’t feel right……I want to avoid that forever. This morning I woke up, stood up and felt awesome. Minus the fact that my buns are incredibly sore (muscle wise not injury wise).
My rules for rest days:
1. Take less than 100 steps the entire day to allow my muscles time to rebuild themselves fully (Billy ends up giving me a picky back ride most places which forces him to take a rest day on Monday because of this).
2. Rest my brain by watching mindless tv shows like The Big Bang Theory for hours.
3. Refill every last glycogen store in my body with delicious, heavenly food.
Lunch today was from Billy’s stash. Once upon a time he bought frozen breaded chicken breasts from Costco and I rolled my eyes thinking we were never going to eat them. Well, looks like I was the one to open the bag and try them out first….they were AMAZING. Loved the crispiness on the outside.
Please note that that is a full chicken breast……this will help you realize how truly huge my salads are when it kind of just looks like a chicken nugget on a normal persons salad.
And for the the whole grains….pb toast with a glass of milk.
PS sorry I didn’t show an after picture of my hair yesterday I thought that you would just like my creepy, close up, wet hair look…basically, it is just a little darker and I dye it every now and then when my hair looks like it is completely frazzled and needs a little protein from the hair dye to liven it up.
My mom gave me my new favorite candy yesterday. She bought them for herself and told me that she didn’t like them because they tasted like STARBURSTS (I promise she is normal). They are delicious and I think I need to get my mom’s taste buds checked out!
Can you overdose on these?
I am already craving Kazoozles for tonight after dinner (my bro sent my nephew a case of these after his accident) and I may end up paying close to $5 for one…..he knows I will pay whatever it takes for candy when I am all out of my own stash.
