This is What 1400 Calories Looks Like...

Food. Food today is awesomely on track. I'm working my calories back up and if I eat everything, I'll hit my goal, ending my day with  1440 calories and ratios of 35% protein, 33% carb and 32% fat. Nice. (As I increase my activity levels, I'll adjust my calories as needed.)

Here's what 1,400 calories looks like...
Chelle's clean and healthy food in her cooler 
Breakfast - 1 cup of greek yogurt with 2 tbsp ground flax & 1/4 cup blueberries with half a grapefruit           
Snack 1:  apple & 2 hard boiled eggs.   
Lunch -   4 ounces chicken breast, steamed zucchini & yellow squash,  1/2 cup Brown Rice. 
Dinner  -  Bowling Night! I've got a 4 oz piece of chicken breast with a cup of sliced red pepper (raw), and a string cheese (really, it's there! it's just hidden, lol!). 

Today is bowling day, so after work, I'll be rushing home to pick up Bill and head to the bowling alley. I'm not bowling, of course, but Bill is. I haven't decided when/if I'll go back to rotation. My ball release is from a pretty deep lunge on my right leg. I know I can't do it now, but not sure if I want to do it after I finish healing. We'll see. It is nice, though, to just hang out. :-) 

No gym/cardio last night. What a day! Yeesh! I got hit out of nowhere by a chest cold yesterday, and by bed time I sounded like a dying frog. Today it's much better, hopefully it'll be gone quick!  I'm drinking LOTS of tea, lol. Soon as I get this thing out of my chest I am ready to do my cardio! So very ready!

For so long exercise has been my me-time, my stress-relief. While I did keep up with my once a week full body workout class right up until surgery, that was all I was doing for weeks. Then post-knee surgery, nothing but physical therapy and home exercises. I've really missed my gym time, and I'm so excited to get back to it. Can't believe I got hit with a chest cold! Lol, just my luck!
