Well, the weekend went EXACTLY according to plan. I ate the pasta for my dad's birthday on Friday and avoided so many goodies...fresh breads, cheeses, salami, etc. I did have a small piece of birthday cake right after. Therefore, my Sunday "cheat" meal was hardly a cheat. I ordered grilled shrimp scewer salad with balsamic vinagarette dressing on the side. I also asked for plain vinegar. The salad was made up of lettuce, a few tomatoes, some shredded carrots, onion and 5 grilled shrimp. I barely touched the fatty dressing and mainly used the plain vinegar. I resisted the hot steamy rolls and butter that were served before dinner and I didn't drink any alcohol, only water. I did my HIIT on the treadmill on Saturday as planned.
Yesterday was upper body at the gym. I am really feeling it in my triceps this morning. I wish I was feeling it more in my back and shoulders (2 areas I REALLY need to work on). My diet was on point all day.
I am about to go to the gym and do today's HIIT. I like to do it on an empty stomach whenever possible. I am thinking about making protein pancakes when I get back. I've never tried them and hopefully they turn out ok with chocolate protein powder. I have a ton of cleaning to do today and I also want to find a health food store in this town.
If you have never seen pictures of fitness model Jamie Eason, do yourself a favor and google her for some motivation. What I would do to have those legs!
