Well today I was up and in for spin and sculpt class. A solid workout. I feel good. As a bonus - My mum-in -law picked me up some more chocolate protein powder at Costco (I like the chocolate Kaizen brand - decent quality whey protein that tastes good for good price) so this morning I had a protein shake after my workout for the first time in the new year (ran out before christmas). On a whim I added a half a teaspoon of instant coffee to the scoop of chocolate mix and it was very tasty. This is a decent protein powder for a fair price. Good amount of protein, not loaded with cholesterol and no fakey sugary taste...nice and chocolatey -turns out the coffee makes it taste like the uberexpensive iso-100 mocha flavoured protein powder I love but can't really afford. The Kaizen is $55 for 2 Kg. About 1/3 the price of the other stuff.
I had my first what you'd call weekly "cheat" meal last night in my new stricter-eating uberfrau plan. It was J's Dad's birthday so we had chinese food. I was good with the main meal and also had an egg roll and piece of apple pie with a bit of ice cream. So very good. I'm slowly learning that I can enjoy my favourite foods without gorging myself to blechiness on them. Only took me 39 years to start to figure it out. Go figure.
Must be off. It's a gorgeous -6 out today and I have much to do before I get to go celebrate *my* Dad's birthday tonight after work.
Have a good one!
