Today was my favorite day at the gym, leg day! Well, shoulders too, but legs are what's important here. Squats on squats, deadlifts, more squats, some extensions, and hopping around. Sore sore sore, and I love it.
Before all of this, I had breakfast. It was delicious.
I let myself have some berries at breakfast because legs takes a lot of work. I don't lift those fake 20 pound weights, either. Two eggs, some spinach, and coconut oil later, and I got it done. I find that since starting the Whole 30 and allowing some fruit (I used to not eat fruit), I feel much better, more awake, less sore. Maybe it's in my head, maybe not. It could also be from the nuts I'm not consuming. I haven't been bloated or lethargic like I am when I eat nuts. They may be delicious, but my body says no.
I ended up getting off of work early, and my dear friend invited me to his gym. I'm not one to turn down an adventure at a gym, so I said yes. He had really attractive friends, so naturally I pushed myself through ANOTHER shoulder workout. Then I did a HIIT workout for 4 and some miles. I was a sweaty mess. Then I was hungry.
Sometimes I'm like a five year old. I made myself chicken nuggets. I cut some chicken breast into strips and rolled it into shredded coconut, paprika, and garlic powder. Baked for 20 minutes, and boom. Nuggets. I typically use almond flour, but no nuts for me. Are olives a nut? I'm not sure. They're the size of a nut. I also made a salad. Spinach, kale, broccoli, and avocado with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. Are avocados a nut? No....fruit. I don't know anymore.
I'm going to go eat a few more olives and think about it. Then have some tea.
