Insanity: Day 3

17 Jul

I swear, at the rate I am going, the whole 60 days of this challenge are going to be about how I messed up and what I changed to suit my likes lol. πŸ˜›

I slept like the dead last night, didn’t get to bed till super late and completely ignored my alarm this morning so I ended up with a whopping 10 hours of sleep, crazeeeee! I’m figuring my body needed it from a combo of sleep deprivation over the past 4 days, lots of activity but not lots of food yesterday and just general laziness lol.

Because of the sleeping in I slept through my first two meals of the day, oops! I wasn’t sure which was the best option, start with Meal 1 Β even though it was past noon or skip ahead to Meal 3…I opted to skip to Meal 3 but increase the calories of that meal to jump start my eating today, also I planned to speed up the timeline for when I had my first snack. I figured if I upped the calories a bit of each meal I might be able to slightly make up for my missing the first 2 meals.

I think I was wrong though…*rolls eyes*

So, my first meal of the day which was technically Meal 3 was:

1 cup of red lentil and veggie soup

2 slices whole wheat bread

4oz deli turkey meat

sliced tomato

minuscule amounts of mustard and light mayo

Here’s what my meal should have been!

1 Cup black bean soup

1 slice whole grain bread

4 oz turkey meat

1/4 of an avocado sliced on top of open faced sandwich

Why the changes you ask? Well! I couldn’t for the life of me find a can of black bean soup when I was shopping, I searched quite a lot so don’t think I skimped on this! I could have made black bean stew from scratch (and according to the meal book that is allowed) but that is waaaaaay too much work so I opted for buying soup but not the type specified. I chose red lentil and veggie soup because lentils are a bean…and uh, that’s about the extent of my reasoning lol I changed the sandwich from an open faced one slice of bread sandwich to a two slices of bread sandwich because 4oz of deli meat turned out to be a ridiculous amount of meat for one slice of bread. Oh, and I didn’t get to have the avocado because sadly my avocado was nowhere near ready to be used, hard as a rock! I put some sliced tomato on top instead, mostly because the sandwich would have been really dry without something replacing the avocado, shrug. It was just a tiny amount of tomato so I don’t think that is too big a deal.

It was a tasty meal, and while not exactly what the book says it should have been I think what I ate was still pretty close to what they say to eat…sorta…well, in my head it is lol πŸ˜›

I went out afterwards and was out for hours. I toyed with the idea of taking some sort of a snack but nothing in my meal plan makes a good portable snack, especially since most everything needs to be refrigerated and oddly enough I don’t have a mini fridge in my vehicle, do you? πŸ˜‰

By the time I got home I was quite hungry, and had been for a while. Seems by only day 3 of this challenge I am already wanting to eat more, weird huh?

I decided to eat before exercising mostly because I was cranky from being hungry and wasn’t willing to wait any longer for food lol. So my second meal of the day (which was supposed to be Meal 4, or possibly even Meal 5 considering the time) was Tuna Salad in a Tomato, it involved:

4oz water packed tuna

1/4 cup celery, chopped

1/4 cup red onion, chopped

1 tbsp light mayo

1 tsp mustard

1 large tomato, hollowed out

1 whole grain english muffin

This was slightly altered from what is in the book, the book wanted Dijon mustard and I used normal mustard, and I was supposed to eat an apple with the meal but forgot.

I’m not sure why but the tuna mix was stuffed in to the hollowed out tomato, I don’t understand why I sacrificed the innards of a perfectly good tomato just to stuff the tuna mix inside…I found it mildly awkward to eat and an odd thing to do lol I’d like to know what kind of crazy tomato the people who made the recipe used because nowhere near all of the tuna mix fit inside of the tomato! lol Oh, and I had slightly less than the 4oz of tuna required because I am not allowed to open a can of tuna without sharing some of it with the cat, I’m pretty sure I’d be killed in my sleep if I attempted to keep all the tuna for myself! lol I feel safeguarding my life was well worth the cost of some of the tuna. πŸ™‚

Today’s exercise dvd was Cardio Power and Resistance. So, cardio with some exercises in there to strengthen muscles. There was jumping but not as much as yesterday which is nice because it meant I didn’t hit the ceiling as much lol. I also learned a new way to work my triceps. Go in to downward dog, then bring your feet in and scrunch down so you are in a bit of a ball, have your weight on the balls of your feet and your hands (your hands are placed on the floor in front of you), while in that position do push ups. I found a youtube video of a girl showing how to do this exercise so you can watch instead of try to visualize what I just wrote lol

There were some exercises that I can’t do. I do girl push ups, hey, don’t judge! I’m a girl and my upper body is not as strong as I would like…yet! Anyways, there are these push-ups where you do 1 push-up, then in plank position move to the right, do a push-up, stay in plank position and move to the right, do a push-up, then repeat but move to the left. It’s moving left and right in plank position and each time you stop you do the push-up. Uhhhh, yeah, so not happening! lol Instead, I did girl push-ups the entire set, I figured better to do push-ups that are actually me going all the way to the floor and back up then me doing some half ass push up that doesn’t actually do anything for me, make sense? Well, it makes sense to me. πŸ˜›

The workout was really good. Any workout that is hard enough that at some point I am actually yelling a bit because of how hard I am working to push myself through is awesome in my opinion. Means I am really working! πŸ™‚

After my workout session I had a protein shake. A tragedy happened while making the shake though, my blender died. I mean dead dead dead! It was making this scary noise and starting smelling like burning electrical ickyness so I stopped it, waited a bit, then retried lol Hey, I really needed that shake to be blended! In the end I had to use a spatula and mix it all up which was fine to a point, didn’t help with the big pieces of frozen fruit though. πŸ˜› It was the lumpiest shake I have ever had, buuuuut it still tasted good. πŸ™‚ I will have to buy a blender tomorrow, sigh. Mines be slowly dying for a while now but I kept putting off replacing it, looks like I don’t have a choice anymore, I can’t go a day without a blender, I use it that often!

I’d like to count day 3 of Insanity as a success buuuuuut if I am being realistic I had yet another day with not enough calories…least I only exercised once today! So not as bad as yesterday, right? πŸ˜‰
