Day 9 Whole Movember :|)
I was out of the loop for Day 8 --- loooong day at work, followed by leftover roast chicken dinner and then school work. I'm so swamped with school work that I've taken the day off (Friday), to dedicate wholly to the books and assignments.
I continue with my IF'ing every morning + my bullet coffee and eating dinner only. Had leftover chicken with brussel sprouts, zuccheni and spring onions. Day 8 was brutal moving around at work --- the legs and abs were still screaming in pain. Today (day 9), the soreness is calming down and I'm ready for an upper body workout and long walk today.
The needle on the scale is not budging but I'm not putting much weight on the weight (no pun intended). I MAY be down 1/2" on the waist (circumference around the belly button), but everything else seems to remain status quo.
I am focused on the weights and exercises this month, so hope to see some evidence of change by Movember 30th. My beach vacation in December continues to be a major source of motivation for me.
This weekend is the hubster's birthday and we have two dinners planned (Sat and Sunday evg). Since we are going to nice restaurants, I'll have no trouble sticking to my Paleo regieme. I treated myself with the purchase of a very nice 'little black dress' which is off one shoulder --- it's classic and I think it shows off my nice back muscles and slender collarbones. Should feel great in that tomorrow.
Tonight, I'm treating hubby and I to some very nice organic, veal chops which are slow cooked (until the meat falls off the bone).....with a little cinnamon, garlic, onion, bouillon and red wine. Serving it with 2, dark-green veggies. Nice way to kick off the weekend (although we are working tomorrow/Sat).
Have a great day everyone./Lu
