Pretty relaxed day. Lunch with a friend – indulged a little at Panera.
I just finished an 8 minute abs video (via YouTube) … it was okay. I’m trying to do the moves correctly, and I sorta feel it in my stomach but I feel it most in my neck and I know that’s not right. I don’t know how to not strain my neck, even when I am using stomach muscles. I can feel the stomach muscled contract and work and everything, but my neck still tenses up and I’m making sure I’m breathing, etc. Is it just because I’m beginner and have literally no muscles to start with? Meh. I’m gonna stick with it but I feel like I won’t make much progress if I keep feeling it in my neck moreso than my stomach. I’ve tried to change it and I don’t know how! AGH!
Also, had spinach twice today to try and help make up for yesterday’s lack o the green stuff. :-)
So far I've had 68oz. of water today, but I’ve got one more 20oz refill to go – so by day’s end we’ll be at 88!
*2 cups spinach cooked down with a clove garlic and tbsp butter with:
*3/4 cup egg subst.
*30 pom seeds (what’s a serving of these things anyway?)
* @ panera: you pick two: sierra turkey sandwich and French onion soup (with an apple!)
bad news – other than choosing the apple as the side (yay me!) none of those things are healthy options. They aren’t the worst but they aren’t the best. Good news – I didn’t eat everything. There was a little left of the sandwich and about half the soup.
*salad: spinach, 1 LCL wedge, pom seeds and baked acorn squash (diced in 1 inch cubes, covered in a little EVOO and S&P and then baked in the oven at 375 for 40 mins)
