Yesterday I ate my heart’s desire in sweets and comfort food. It was THE BEST. We kept things super low key and just celebrated my bday ourselves. Wanted to have friends over but ya know, wanted to also play it safe – especially because I’ll need to be my healthiest over the next 90 days.
Sam and I ate indulged in some incredible Chinese food (ugh crispy green beans, Schezuan eggplant, and honey walnut prawns are THE BEST)…
…and topped it off with my CURRENT obsession: Somi Somi. It’s a fish shaped waffle that is smothered on the inside with your choice of filling (I love me some custard) and then the creamiest, butteriest soft serve on top. I chose ube with a matcha powder dusting. LEGIT MY FAVE DESSERT IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW. I was so happy.
It was the perfect sendoff meal into my 90 Day Journey to Muscle!
This morning, I woke up without my alarm because I was SO excited to get started. I honestly have not felt this level of focus and excitement for a workout in a long time – maybe since my bikini prep 10 years ago? Crazy. I love this feeling.
There is something so calming about knowing exactly what you’re going to eat all week. Usually, I am pressed for time and firing all my creative brain cells at once, trying to figure out what to cook for Sam and I while being super hungry. Today, I knew what was in the fridge and what I needed to eat, so…it was oddly therapeutic!?
Here’s what my day of eating looked like.
That’s 155g of protein right there! I am STUFFED. I’ll be eating this exact meal plan this entire week til the end of the weekend and will switch it up on Sunday.
My fave is the Green Oats and Chicken meal (top left). I eat it savory (like a Chinese rice porridge) and it is sooo filling, warm, and honestly, just really really good. Oh, and you know what’s also really good? This hot sauce.
Currently can’t put this TRUFF hot sauce down. It is ADDICTING. Just the right amount of sweet, salty, spicy, fatty, truffly – whatever that flavor is! SO GOOD. Perf on top of anything, but especially these oats. Wow. Just wow.
Now, let’s talk about the workout.
I uhh, pretty much died.
BTW – those numbers there are the weights I used per set.
This is me looking at my sorry self in the mirror thinking “DID U THINK YOUR LEGS WERE MADE OF STEEL OR SOMETHING HA THINK AGAIN.”
Literally, legs are numb and will be jello by the time I hit the mattress tonight. They will be USELESS against the stairs and toilet tomorrow.
The 30 min run at the beginning was great. I have no prob there. But somehow I wrote a monster weight lifting workout that took me almost 1 hour and 30 min to complete! I had to shorten the single leg incline glute bridge because there was NO WAY I was going to be physically able to pull out another set of 20 reps per leg. It takes a lot for me to quit, but I knew my limits, and had to. It’s ok. No guilt. Just being realistic. I’m very proud of myself for pulling through this one. It was so incredibly tough.
It’s 8:42pm and I am actually getting tired. This is great, because remember, my goal was to head upstairs at 9pm, be in bed by 10pm and asleep by 10:30pm! Got 7 hrs last night and hoping to push for 8 tonight. This is honestly my biggest struggle. So thank you for keeping me accountable. I hope to make this an effortless habit one day.
