So I broke my fast early, having a dinner of sorts last night, only because I was feeling very shaky and I still had to get through dance rehearsal. I’ve fasted on dancing days before with no problem so I’m 97% sure it was related to the total exhaustion I was working under yesterday. Anyway, I stopped by Whole Foods just before rehearsal and got two raw-food bars (one cranberry and Larabar’s Key Lime Pie) and an avocado that I peeled and ate like an apple LOL. Felt fine during rehearsal, then took measurements and pics when I got home. I found that I had made a definite switch back into the raw-food mindset – while browsing in Whole Foods I really wasn’t tempted by any of the other stuff. So feeling very good about that (and also quite easily passed up my customary post-dance beer.)
I did not get to work out yesterday (as I was unprepared and had to run to the grocery store in the morning instead) and plan to start with my first workout tonight. And then go to bed early!
Going forward, my plan is to fit workouts into my schedule on dance days (MWF). This means that I have very long physically active days but those are my “late days” going into work so it is much easier to fit in a morning workout then. Also, my body should be fine with it as I am quite used to the dancing at this point, and although it is lengthy in time, it is not overly taxing for the most part.
I got home late as usual last night, and what with taking measurements and pics did not get to making lunch for myself today, so I will be getting salad from the cafeteria later. I did make a yummy green smoothie for myself, and threw an orange and a grapefruit in my bag to take to work.
What I ate today:– Orange
– Green smoothie
– Large salad with mushrooms, bruschetta (tomatoes and basil), red and yellow peppers, lots of sprouts, and some olives, plus olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
– A Larabar (Cherry Pie) and a Jocolat bar (Chocolate). I’m lucky to be able to buy these raw bars in my cafeteria!
– One tea with lemon
– One mango
– Large salad with red cabbage, snowpeas, cauliflower, carrots, fresh dill, yellow peppers and scallions, plus olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
– Half of a pineapple
After work I went to H&M and bought pants to work out in. I also went to the Container Store and bought two salad containers and two nifty compartmented lunch boxes. Yay for being prepared!
I had plans to work out this evening but still haven’t caught up on my sleep so it will have to happen tomorrow. No worries though, I can fit in another workout this weekend and then be 3 for the week.
At the end of the evening, I packed salad for tomorrow, as well as the other half of the pineapple and another mango. I also have a grapefruit at work to finish off, and will make a green smoothie in the morning.
