Fit by Feb Day 1-- Not as Planned!

I'm sitting here on the couch where I've been sitting since I got out of bed and I can't make myself get up! The sinus cold that I had a couple weeks ago has come back with a vengeance and I just can't find the energy to get to the gym. I've literally tried like 5 times now and just can't imaging picking up anything heavy right now, what a bummer. Looks like I'll be heading in to work this afternoon and just taking it easy after that so that hopefully I can feel better and not worse tomorrow. I'm pretty bummed because I was looking forward to getting started with my Fit by Feb group, but I guess there's always tomorrow. By the way, it's not too late to get the workouts sent over to you, so if you'd like 4 weeks of workouts for just $25, send the funds to littlebeeblog@gmail.com along with your email address and you'll be all set! 


Like I said, I had every intention of starting out the Fit by Feb challenge with a bang, so I started my morning with egg whites +1 whole egg, toast and a chicken sausage link. After I ate the sinus pressure really started kicking in and I realized the gym just wasn't in the cards today. 


So instead, I did a little cooking so that we have meals ready for the next few days. First I made chili that's currently slow cooking on the stove. I just added all the items above to some browned turkey, 1/2 cup water and chili seasoning-- this will cook for a few hours on simmer. In my crockpot I have a flank steak with bell pepper, onions, jalapeno, and taco seasoning. This is cooking on low for 4-4 1/2 hours and then I'll shred it and it will be ready for tacos or even a burrito bowl or taco salad. 

For everyone that started the workouts, how did day 1 go?

    1. Nope it will create its own juices as it cooks. I do recommend cutting it in half though otherwise it will give you really long pieces after you shred.
