That is what I decided to do this morning. Truth is, I wanted to go back to sleep in the worst kind of way. But, you all got me out of bed. I knew I had to write a post about Day 3 and I couldn’t do that if I didn’t do the workout. So at 4:30 this morning I was in front of the TV with Shaun T. Overall this workout wasn’t quite as bad, but there were a few reasons for that. First, I decided to watch the move, then not look at the screen again until he called for something else. I simply can’t go at his pace and keep form, but I feel like I have to when I watch him. So, I just didn’t watch after I saw the move the first time. There were also a few things I just couldn’t do. moving pushups…forget about it. I did pushups on my knees during these. I’m just not there yet and I’m not going to beat myself up. I was also having trouble with my wrist so I couldn’t support my full weight.
My wrist is still bugging me a little, but my calves are screaming! I think it may be because I didn’t properly stretch after my run Saturday because I was worried about my son. They have felt tight since, but with all of the quick movements they are hurting. I hope they’re up to tomorrows workout. I remembered to put on my FitBit this time so I can keep track of my calories. I have it synced with Myfitnesspal which is really handy. Don’t forget to be my friend (emmycaitlin0304) if you use Myfitnesspal.
I wanted to share the soup recipe I made the other night. I love soup because I usually can’t screw it up. This is another one from Dr. Fuhrman’s book Eat to Live (I will link some of these products at the bottom in case you are interested) and I really like it.
Lisa’s Lovely Lentil Stew

- 1 teaspoon died basil
- 3, large ripe tomatoes, chopped

Please the lentils, water, onion, pepper, and basil in a pot and simmer for 30 minutes. Add the tomato and celery and simmer for an additional 15 minutes, or until the lentils are tender.
