So, today was the last day of Plyo Fix Extreme. I decided to try out my Beachbody Performance Energize, and it was Amazing!! It is meant to give you energy to enhance your workout. I read reviews that have said it's especially good for people who workout early in the morning and are tired during their workouts. That's me(!), so I was excited to try it.
During my workout, I felt like I was on fire! I did the whole workout for the whole time. I felt SO GOOD when I was doing this workout. I was able to have a good range of motion, I barely stopped even thought there were a lot of jumps. I usually poop out or "half ass" it, but not this time. I was a machine. However, my fitbit did not necessarily reflect this, which was kind of disappointing. I still think I need some Energize in my life though. We are going to see how the rest of this week goes, but I'm certain I'm going to be purchasing more of that soon.
The left picture is from today (with energize), and the right is from the last time I did this workout. Notice I spent a minute with my heart rate in peak today, but last time I spent more time in "cardio." I think the biggest thing for me is how I felt during this workout. I legitimately felt like a beast, and I have never felt that way before.
As for meals, I ate really well today. I only took a picture of my breakfast, but I ate salad for my other two meals, and it's the same salad I'm eating for lunch all week so I will eventually get a picture. This is an egg casserole I made. I realized yesterday as I was meal prepping I got rid of my muffin tin, and I improvised. I cut the casserole into 12 pieces, so I would only get one egg per square. In this, I used 12 eggs, lots of spinach, mushrooms, and feta cheese. It was actually really good. I refrigerated the whole casserole and only reheated the squares I need. I think in the future, I will add some red bell pepper. I also don't know how I feel about the feta. It's just not evenly spaced.

My next two meals were Honeycrisp Salad. It had spinach, blue cheese crumbles, dried cranberries, pecans, and a homemade apple vinaigrette. It was delicious. During lunch, I added some shredded chicken, which was also really tasty. This is definitely a salad I will bring back. I also used the spinach I bought at the Farmer's Market, which was really yummy. It was extra crispy, so it will really a different kind of spinach than what you purchase in the store. I'll be sure to take a picture of it tomorrow.

finally, a friend of mine asked to meet me at Dairy Queen. To be honest, I wasn't really excited for ice cream. I didn't really want it. I had a mini blizzard, and I was surprisingly good with that. Considering yesterday I wanted to eat all of the candy, cookies, and ice cream in the town, today was a pleasant surprise. I was on my cycle this previous week, and I wanted to eat everything in sight. Good thing that doesn't happen all of the time.
Today was a great start to getting myself back on track. Even though it was a stressful day (that's what happens when an employee walks out on you), I didn't let it get me down and I didn't stress eat. Overall, today was a win. Let's hope I can continue my awesome decision making through tomorrow.
