So I sort of ate two dinners tonight. I had the soy burger before swimming 1,000 yards, then the “lettuce, chicken, cucumber” ordeal (a salad, people!) after swimming. Swimming makes me starve to death. Needed some greens. My body was craving it.

I also baked cookies for ~*someone*~ so, really, what choice did I have but to test one out? Not trying to make excuses for snacking, just state facts here!

AGAIN, the carbs. Gotta watch that. It’s the breakfast and the sandwich mix. Killer.

I guess I neglected my workout in my last food log (Monday was a no gym day. Got a massage instead!).

Yesterday was leg day. Started with a mile on the treadmill. I do a walk/run thing because I cannot run for very long. Swimmers don’t do land cardio very well. I then did leg raises (30 lb per leg), hamstring curls (35 lbs per leg), squats (90 lbs), leg press (160 lbs), and dead lifts (50 lbs).

I upped my weights this week so we’ll see how I feel today. I’ve been keeping my squat weight lower in order to get deeper into them.

P.S. Down a pound today!!!

Again with the carbs! THE ENEMY! 

So I may have gotten very hungry this evening. I had a fantastic massage after dinner that left me feeling a little depleted.  I’ve been chugging water and my stomach has been growling since! Anyway, not too too bad for Day 1 back in food logging. Could really use some more protein.

Well, doesn’t this sound delightful—and somewhat simple for one with a cooking phobia.

My girl Liz has been my most recent little inspiration. She has been practicing yoga for a few years as an instructor and for her own purposes. She recently started working at a high school that specializes in and focuses on adolescents with behavioral health disorders. At this school, she, among other things, teaches yoga as an elective. Liz is teaching these delicate students about self love and respect through yoga. That in itself is inspirational.

In doing yoga for herself, she recently tackled the headstand. I’ve seen her do it countless times, but with a wall behind her “just in case,” sort of as a security blanket. This photo showcases her first headstand without The Wall, and what luck to be in such a beautiful setting.

She really proves that with enough confidence, practice, and time, you can break yourself away from that “wall” of a security blanket [literally a wall in her case].  You can do anything you want.  Keep pushing, Lizzy, and keep motivating those around you.
