Today is Day 2 of my food logging/no sweets challenge. It’s been a good day! My energy is so much better. I didn’t even need my afternoon cup of coffee. 🙂
No sweets cravings today. I am feeling great physically and mentally.
Jesse is meeting one of our friends for a workout tonight. He is going to show me the core workout moves he does when he gets home. Our friend is a former Marine, and current police officer, and he said he has some great moves to share with us.
Thank you to those of you who shared recipes today! Team Bender member, Haley, inspired my dinner when she shared her photo/recipe. (Thanks Haley!) I love cooking, and finding fun and healthy recipes to try out. I have also pinned a ton of recipes lately on my pinterest page: www.pinterest.com/BenderFitness.
So here is my food log. My first two meals were almost identical to yesterday.
