This may sounds bizarre, but I always love Mondays. It’s the start of a new week, a new diet, a new goal, a new plan. I always feel so motivated on Mondays. For me, Sundays are the worst. I get so lazy and eat my feelings. Every damn Sunday. It’s weird, I should try to fix that.
Today, I started my goal of doing a 5 minute meditation every day for 10 days. I downloaded an app for my phone called, “Simply Being”. You can decide your background music/sound and time (5, 10, or more minutes) for a guided mindful meditation. Easy. I really enjoyed it in the comfort of my pajamas. A wonderful way to start the morning. It’s amazing that I can wake up with that many thoughts floating around in my head. It didn’t help that I had nightmares about the Criminal Minds episode I watched recently. Kidnapping and murdering. Every show. CREEEPY and I always get nightmares after watching it. And I am 31 years old.
Another great thing about today besides day 1 of meditation complete? 1 word: Deadlifts. I am constantly trying to improve them. And lift loads. But it doesn’t always work out that way… but today was good. I didn’t pull from the ground, I pulled from 2 risers and it made a huge difference. I did 185lbs for 4. Goal is 225. I can do it. I just need to be more consistent. As I said on Instagram (@fitkatieb), I look like I have to poop. In my head, I looked wayyy more awesome.
It was a sunny, but freezing cold day. I needed tea and a healthy meal. So I walked to David’s tea and got a birthday cake tea and came home and made spaghetti squash with ground chicken in tomato sauce. Um, ground chicken is weird. I can’t decide if I like it or not. I don’t think I do, but now I have enough for two more meals so I have to like it for a couple days at least. I think tomorrow I will cover it with avocado.. that should do the trick. Funny story-when I was in Haiti, I went to a restaurant and they asked me how I would like my chicken cooked. Once, I swallowed the puke in my mouth that came up, I requested “well-done”. I ate it and I didn’t die so that’s good.
I take horrible food pictures. But that’s Paleo ground chicken and spaghetti squash and green beans. I put a small amount of nutritional yeast on top for that fake cheesy flavour. Yum.
Ok? Ok bye.
