Holyyyyyyy heckkkkkkkkk. Today was leg day. That is all. I haven’t had a day dedicated solely to legs in a long time and I asked myself if James Wilson was secretly trying to kill me during this morning’s workout. Everything was burning and I wanted to die. I didn’t even get to the ab portion of the workout because I ran out of time but I can just make up for that tonight, maybe by doing another FitnessGlo ab routine.
My butt and legs are the hardest parts of my body for me to develop. I have always had super skinny arms and a tiny back so having muscle show in those spots is a bit easier. My lower half is a different story though… I am really learning a lot about how my body responds to different exercises on this program. It’s the food part I’m still trying to nail (aka trying not to eat chocolate every day)…but it’s all trial and error. Different things work for different bodies and it just takes time to figure it out!
The following is most likely not James Wilson-approved but as I went to do a small grocery run last night and…well, I couldn’t help myself.
Completely necessary in everyone’s cupboards. I haven’t tried them yet and I am completely terrified they will turn me into a Cheerios addict. Mind you, there are worse things. But still. I also don’t like the “limited time only” on the box. It creates anxiety, don’t you think?? So if I like them, does it mean I have to go buy 30 more boxes in case I never see them again? Very rude marketing if you ask me.
My intention was just to grab a big box of spinach (also a necessity) because I ran out and I feel like I can’t make my smoothies without it. They just aren’t the same. Zevia was also on sale (6 for $3) and though I’m not huge on pop (or any carbonated drinks), sometimes I have a craving for root beer or coke. No, Zevia is not as good as the real thing but it has 0 calories and is sweetened with stevia so no sugar shakes (like I had on the weekend). I also threw some rice cakes in there for good measure. Who doesn’t love a good slice of cardboard? Hah. No I actually really enjoy rice cakes, believe it or not. You just have to get creative and top them with really flavourful things.
So basically I’m good for the rest of the week because I am stocked with Cheerios, spinach, and rice cakes.
What are some of the items you always have in the house? – I need to have bananas, oats, Ezekiel bread, peanut butter, and almond milk. I don’t think I can live without any of those things.
Favourite cereal?? – I can go on forever with this one but I’ll narrow it down to Raisin Bran, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and most recently PEANUT BUTTER TOAST CRUNCH.
