Happy Saturday!! So I have to comment on something real quick before I give y’all the Day 3 plan. I went to the grocery store yesterday morning, and since the place was pretty empty, I had a chance to really take in just how much we continue to get bombarded with more snacks, candy, and soda even after we’ve done all our shopping – there’s no escaping the sugar, no one is safe. Even if you don’t like Rice Krispies or Reese’s, just being surrounded by all that enticing food definitely makes me start craving something I probably shouldn’t eat. Also can we talk about these massive bins of jumbo sized Rice Krispies? They were about as tall as my waist which conveniently puts them RIGHT at eye level with your average kiddo. I see what you did there, Kellogg’s, you sneaky mom.
Also, kudos to whoever did the product placement of the Reese’s sticks – Baby George is judging you for even thinking about that candy bar.
Anyhoo, here’s the plan for Day 3, Cheers!
DRINK 8 oz. of water when you wake up.
While brushing your teeth do some calf raises – 10 with feet turned out, 10 feet straight, 10 feet turned in. Get that blood going.
- 8 oz. water
- 2 eggs scrambled
- half an avocado
OR if you’re like me and your avocado went bad and you still have a lot of leftover veggies from your veggie bake, I just went ahead and made a veggie scramble with some SALSA.
DRINK 16 oz. of water by lunch
- Strawberry & blueberry salad topped with grilled chicken and sliced almonds (walnuts or pecans would taste great too)
- I drizzle on a little olive oil and some lemon juice for dressing
- 8 oz. water
That’s right, you can be sugar free/paleo and still eat Chipotle – praise the lawddd!!! If you want to make your bowl truly paleo, get a salad, no dressing, veggies, skip the beans, skip the corn, and say adios to the cheese and sour cream. And ABSOLUTELY get the guac. That being said, it’s Saturday, and I said “treat yo-self” and got some bean and corns 😉
Those are the moves from the P90X Ab Ripper X video – sorry I couldn’t find the actual video online, but just do 25 reps of each of the moves those guys are doing.
If you still haven’t had enough after that, I challenge everyone to do my 5-minute plank exercise. You heard me right, that’s five minutes of planking. Start in a low plank for 30 seconds, and then immediately come up to a high plank for 30 seconds. Alternate back and forth for 30-second intervals between a high and a low plank for a total of five minutes. Try your best not to cheat, and make sure you roll forward onto your toes so you’re really focusing on your core. GOOD LUCK.
