Sooo today was an alright day. I'm still feeling the effects of my binging behavior from last week...I always forget just how long it takes to get rid of the disgusting bloated/distended/ food baby feeling. It's so annoying! Especially because mentally I'm back in the game, but physically I look like I'm 6 months pregnant. Not so encouraging.
Anyway, I ate quite a bit today.
-breakfast-2 cups of coffee, picked on a few pieces of canned salmon
-lunch- salad with bacon, avocado, mushrooms, balsamic vinegar and olive oil
- then I ate 2 more pieces of bacon
- then I had a bunch of the leftover beef/cauliflower mixture from the stuffed peppers I made
-dinner- MORE of the beefy mixture
- creamy turmeric tea (from MDA's recipe), made with 1/2 cup coconut milk and 1/2 cup water
So the tea was actually really good. I didn't sweeten it with anything, and I thought the creamy and savory flavor was delish. I'll definitely make this again. I had it because I knew it would be filling, but also because I need the anti-inflammatory properties of the turmeric for this big ol' belly I have right now!
Also, the stuffed peppers are freakin' awesome as well! That recipe is from the Civilized Caveman blog. If you haven't checked it out yet, DO IT. All of his recipes are amazing. I actually asked him to marry me today. Not lying.
As for working out:
-I did a 12 minute HIIT workout (Bodyrock)
-50 squats with a 20lb sandbag
-random ab/plank stuff
-70 minute hot vinyasa yoga class this evening
Pretty good day overall. I just feel really really full. I guess it's probably a combo of having NO self control, and the residual crappiness leftover from last week ugh, I'm hoping this feeling goes away soon. I was seriously SOOO angry with myself this evening before yoga, because I was so bloated and gurgly and it was all my fault! I just can't wait for my physical and mental states to match. Because I'm feeling so primal right now. Like a boss!
