When did Easter become such a feast? I had two dinners to go to yesterday, both of which were fabulous and well enjoyed but man did I eat! Ham, casseroles, lamb, roasted vegetables, rolls, beer, a pleasant mistake cocktail (bloody grapefruit), and desserts. I was exhausted from feasting. This morning I felt like I was still in a bit of a food coma as all I wanted to do was stay in bed and hide under the covers.
Pushing through this urge to hide was tough…each time I got out of bed (once to pee, once to make coffee, and once to let the dog out) I ended up running right back in and hopping under the covers. Eventually I emerged…around 11am(so much to do, so little time!). I could’ve easily given in to my desires and had cereal or a fresh baked roll with eggs b
ut I decided to put forth the effort and make today better than yesterday. I can very easily fall into the bad eating trap, have many times before but not today. I pan seared left over steak, trimming the fat, tossed romaine with a little olive oil and carrot ginger dressing, and had a side of fresh mango. Let’s get this day going!!! Off on a speed walk, then a few rounds of pushups/lunges, then a shower and studying nasm before work…I want more time!
