I have decided to start a new blog to help motivate me to get back into shape and to eat healthier. I usually love to workout and eat healthy, but since I tore my ACL in February, I have not wanted to do much other than eat pizza and burgers on the couch while watching tv shows.
Now that my knee is functioning again and I can move and walk without pain or being uncomfortable, I want to start getting into shape.
This is going to be my exercise record and my meal diary.
Hopefully this will work. I have found that when I workout and eat healthy everything else just falls into place. I become happier and more motivated to work on things.
So here's to my health. Na zdraví.
28 April 2009:
Breakfast: Cinnamon sugar oatmeal and a cup of apple juice. Not my favorite breakfast, but I was in a hurry to finish my lab report and get to lab. It definitely keeps the hunger from hitting for a few hours.
Snack: A grande cup of English breakfast tea with about a tablespoon of honey.
Lunch: Half of a leftover chicken Caesar salad and a large serving of fruit (grapes, pineapple, melons). I was in a hurry the previous day and so I didn't get to take a longer lunch. A quick pre-made salad was the best I could do with my 20 minute lunch.
Snack: Cheese samples from the market and a pastry sample from QFC. Not my best, but they just looked so good!
Dinner: One large serving of Parmesan Lamb Pie. Recipe from Marie Claire Zesty by Michele Cranston. It tasted good. Really good. Although I was not a fan of the topping (eggs whipped with yogurt and Parmesan cheese). I made something like this before and I think it would have been better over pasta and if I had added raisins and feta cheese instead of Parmesan. It was so tasty though.
Dessert: Blondies, made by my boyfriend Tim. It's about the only thing he can make in the kitchen that is really really good.
Excercise: Walking to and from class of course. Elliptical for 30 min, some of my knee exercises. No weights. Too lazy.
