30 Days of Healthy Challenge

Good evening everyone! I am trying hard to stick with this and at least get in some activity. My sick bug has returned and I am not feeling the best. I still managed to get out for 2 walks in the 90 degree heat today. I also did some exercises while the baby was napping. I did not get to the gym like I had hoped. I will as soon as this damn bug leaves my system. Today for exercise I did:

  • 40 squats
  • 12 mountain climbers
  • 10 push ups
  • 20 crunches
  • 20 bicycle crunches

Being sick, staying on a healthy diet is very high on my list of priorities right now. We decided to get take out for dinner. Since it was disgustingly hot out and our apartment heats up to a million degrees when we turn the oven on. We discovered this great chicken place in our neighbourhood. It is brand new to Hells Kitchen “poulette” is the healthiest take out that I have been able to find. The roast chicken is so good and the options for sides are amazing. This is what I ate today:

Breakfast: coffee with soy milk, multi grain bagel with natural peanut butter

Lunch: Salad with chicken, strawberries, fresh mozzarella, carrots and raspberry vinaigrette

Snack: Hummus and pita chips

Snack: Soy Cinnamon Dolce Latte from Starbucks

Dinner: Chicken, quinoa, green beans, brussel sprouts and a glass of red wine

I am trying to drink as much water as I can handle to get rid of this illness. I normally drink a lot of water to begin with but at this point I am getting about 3 cups or more an hour. I can not believe I have not been able to shake this thing! How are you all doing?
