Monique’s Accountability

I haven’t worked out since last week. Emil caught a bug on Friday and we, his proud parents, managed to pick this annoyance also. Nursing yourself back to wellness is one thing, but when you have your sick little one to care for, it’s a whole different story. This reminds me of why I never drink too much now as a parent:) Back on the fitness trail tomorrow. The important thing is not to beat myself up for not getting in those essential workouts, but to get well and focus on the present.

Monique’s Nutrition
B:1 egg, 2 sausage patties (Dan ground these from Pork and added herbs), 1/2 cup raspberries w/ 1/4 pecans and 1 T coconut milk
S: Hard boiled egg
L: 1.5 cups of homemade chicken soup, no noodles or rice, or course, 1 chocolate Lara Bar
D: 1.5 cup Texas Chili, compliments of Dan
S: 4 cups of tea today with locally grown honey and lemon (excessive on the sugar but was so helpful on my throat)

Dan’s Accountability

This weekend was pretty lousy. Eating was ok, mostly protein, but I fasted most of Saturday and the evening was not great. I think I ate too much! Sunday was worthless because we made pizza from some bread and cheese. I’m really not sure why we did that, but in my past life Halloween meant to eat pizza and then pass out candy. The candy part was hard too. Had way too much. Monique tossed it in the trash. Thank goodness. My breakfast and lunch were on point. I can’t remember what they were, but I remember not eating any sugar, etc. We don’t keep bread in the house or grains so it may have been alot of fruit. I started to get sick on Sunday so I made some chili. I started feeling lousy so I did not get a workout in. Monday was going to be a new day.

Dan’s Nutrition
B:1 egg, 2 sausage patties, Green tea
S: Hard boiled egg
L: Shakeology + scoop whey
D: 2c cup Oxtail Chili
S: 4 cups of tea today with locally grown honey and lemon (excessive on the sugar but was so helpful on my throat)

WOD: Rest (sick)
