I feel like I've been saying this a lot lately, but I can't believe it's been almost a week since I've blogged! Lots has happened in the past week- grandpa's funeral, broken down car, out of town, fighting off sickness, and more wedding prep. This is definitely, hands down the busiest and craziest my life has ever been but I will have to say I've learned a lot not only about myself, but about true love and true friendship. But, that's another post.
So in the midst of the crazy, I have not been very good with my nutrition. Many meals have been skipped due to lack of planning and prepping and the gym has been sporadic. This is killing me because I have the most amazing opportunity to be at the Myfitnessmap.com booth at the Mr. Olympia and I should really be working my butt off to be in great shape, and well, I haven't been. But, that doesn't mean I can't start today! 2 1/2 weeks is plenty of time to plump up these muscles and get back on track. (On a side note, we will be at booth #2368 and if you are reading this and planning on being there, you MUST stop by!! :) )
I started my day off with some overnight pumpkin oats in a mason jar (my new favorite thing) and then we hit legs at the gym. I enjoyed my post workout shake while taking Charley for a walk and prepped all my meals for work today. Tonight we'll be having chicken fajitas with black beans for dinner and I'll probably cap the night off with a casein shake and a bite of a Quest bar :) I'm not counting calories right now, but I am being aware of portion sizes and weighing most my food and would say I'm in the 1700 calorie range.
Remember, it's not about how long or how hard you've fallen, what counts is that you get back up and keep on truckin'.
