BLC - Day 9, Sexy Calves?

Yesterday went well. Had a good workout with Helen, who told me as she ran past, lol, that I have 'sexy calves'. Really???? Me???? I'm such a dork that this made me have a huge boost of confidence. Primarily since I HATE my calves. I never ever thought that anyone would compliment those. So, yeh, I went to bed feeling like hot sh*t :)...also ran/walked 3 miles and rode my bike about 3 or 4 miles. Of course then I got home and my husband had went and got pizza, sigh. But, in contrast to when I would have eaten 4-6 slices I only had two.

Today I have really been inspired. BLC stands for the Biggest Loser Challenge a friend and I started at work. Today was the last day to weigh in for week 2. Not everyone had a loss, but many of the 14 people who joined the competition did. It is so uplifting to see those who didn't get the loss they wanted persevere, and those who lost 3, 4, 5 pounds jump with joy! Working together like this really helps. I can feel it pushing me and making me aware of something I haven't been previously. That we are all beautiful, and the true journey is health.

In the spirit of this I am going to challenge myself the rest of the week. I've slacked slightly the last few days, especially in the food department. But I'm not going to let this challenge, this group, down. This is the plan stan...

Breakfast - Apple & a Banana
Snack - Yogurt
Lunch - Tuna & Orange
Snack - Slimfast (HEB Generic Brand)
Dinner - Chicken Breast & Veggies

If I'm working out hard I will keep some super healthy granola bars on hand.

But that is it. That is the menu until next Monday. Now I'm just hoping that I get paid tonight so I can buy all this good food in the morning, haha. Cross your fingers!

Have a great night and thank you for reading!
