Last night’s dinner was a definite victory for Brad. I think I’ve mentioned it before that he wants to eat most meals in a crust. He thinks shepherd’s pie is a fraud because it doesn’t come in a crust. Whenever we have frittata he wishes it was in a crust, etc, etc etc.
On Sunday night I was grabbing a forgotten item from the grocery store and saw a quiche on quick sale (aka it expires in a day or two so it’s 50% off).
Well, I’m no fan of meals in a crust. I don’t think pastries of any kind should make up a meal, they’re for dessert. And pre-made meals from the grocery store break. the. bank. But since I’m the nicest gal in the world (when things are on sale) I grabbed this broccoli and cheddar quiche for him.
He appreciated it. I didn’t exactly complain. (Maybe I’ll throw tonight’s stew in a crust )
This morning we were back to early morning workouts. Today was the Nike Training Club app one hand edition. My substitutions:
- jumping jacks instead of mountain climbers
- planks on elbows instead of pushups
- calf raises instead of shoulder press
- hundreds instead of deadlifts
Yes it was leg and ab heavy.
It was also water heavy. Between the 30 minute app workout and 20 minutes on the treadmill afterwards I went through THREE bottles of water.
Dehydration ain’t no joke friends.
I’ve been grabbing coffee over tea, rushing in the morning and skipping my lemon water, we had wine with dinner on Saturday and Sunday. Before I knew it my throat was parched, my lips were extremely dry, and I was feeling incredibly sluggish.
This morning Brad kept trying to get me to hurry to get to the gym. ”Look alive” he kept saying to me. ”I’m not alive!” I wasn’t tired this morning, I had a good sleep. But my extreme thirst totally limited my workout.
I couldn’t give myself the butt kicking that I normally enjoy during the NTC app workouts, and it wasn’t just because of the modifications.
There are a bunch of ways you can limit yourself from preforming your best:
- being dehydrated
- not sleeping enough
- eating junky foods (ie anything that’s not “clean” food and yeah I do classify quiche as junky hahaha)
- eating foods that you are sensitive to (some of mine are wine, coffee, cheese, dairy)
What are some other ways that you limit yourself? What is holding you back from performing your best?
