July 17th. Exercise is fun

Hey Everyone.

So, today was fun. I woke up at 7:30, my body is ready for some early morning running, but I’m not, yet.

Anyway, for breakfast, I had some oatmeal and some raspberries.

Later, I  decided to cut up the watermelon my mom bought. We, as in my sister and I, ate half of that watermelon today. It was a pretty large one and that was basically my snack and lunch for the day.

Then, for dinner, I had a grilled chicken Caesar salad from Panera. I get that every time I go to Panera, and I want to try some of the other salads. Any suggestions? there are many with fewer calories and those are the ones I want to try. They look good, but I’m afraid that  they will not be on palette and I will have wasted a good $7 of my parents hard-earned cash. Whatever, then, as I was prepared to just call it a night, my friend texted me. She wanted to go to the YMCA with her. I reluctantly agreed and thank God that I did. I got there, put my stuff in the locker room, and did a mile on the elliptical. I needed to do that so bad. It was so amazing. All I could think of was Elle Woods from Legally Blonde and her saying, “I just don’t think that Brooke could’ve done this. Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands, they just don’t.” The last part doesn’t really apply to me, other than the fact that I won’t kill my husband… anyway. It was so nice. Then, I did a mile on the treadmill and her mom and sister were ready to go. So, we left.

I felt like I could do anything after that workout.

I had a total of 1089 calories.

Before I leave tonight, may I say that these past two days have been absolutely amazing. A dream come true. These past 2 days are probably in the top 5 best days for me, behind of course, being born. 🙂

Happy Shredding,

Alicia 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂


P.S. I have officially decided what I am going to do about the No Junk Food Challenge and 30 Day Shred. I will have up to 5 things of Junk Food this week, as planned, but nest week as well. I have inspired my friend to do the No Junk Food Challenge minus no chocolate and one other thing. We will begin on August 1st along with that, I will legitimately start the 30 day Shred. Then after I complete one No Junk Food Challenge, I will allow myself 4 junk foodish items the nest week, then start the challenge, then 3, etc until I stay at one per week and then finally to having no junk food in my diet at all. I could start tomorrow, but I am going on vacation next week and I don’t want to break any habit. Also, not the 30 day Shred, because I don’t want to put too much pressure on my knee at one time. I will go to the Y and bike and swim and then work it back up to its full potential. 🙂
