Bridal Body Slim Down: Day 1 & 2

Oh boy! These last two days have NOT gone as planned. 

I had my bachelorette party on Saturday night and although it was not Day 1 of my slim down, it greatly affected my Sunday. The ladies and I stayed out past midnight, then joined the boys at our home for some after party shenanigans. The festivities went well into the morning hours and I still recall people being up till about 6 am. I did go to bed around 3:00 am myself, but that was still hours after my normal bed time. 

I awoke at 8:30 am and enjoyed eggs and sliced potatoes for breakfast. Surprisingly, I felt well enough to do my long run. 

I wanted to do 13.1 miles, but I had to cut it short by a mile. I had to be at our wedding rehearsal by 1:00 pm and I was pushing 11:30 am when I finished 12.1 miles. I had just enough time to shower and dress.

Peter and I completely missed lunch, but I was able to grab a handful of almonds to keep me satisfied until we had a legit meal at 3:00 pm. We decided to go out to sushi, where I had 3 rolls, no spicy mayo or soy sauce. Lots & lots of water was consumed!

Once we finally returned home, we cleaned up the kitchen from the party tornado that came through during the night and then lay on the couch for a few hours. Needless to say, we were both COMPLETELY exhausted. I was unable to get in a strength workout because of how tired I was.

I managed to end my day with another meal, which was a wrap. It included turkey, onions, peppers, cheese, a little bit of salsa and yogurt on the side. Yet, I was in bed soon after.

My exhaustion has leaked over into Day 2 and I have decided to abstain from running today. I would much rather take a break and have a better run tomorrow, than have a bad run with lead legs. I was still able to maintain good eating habits today.

Breakfast: GF Chex with Almond Milk

Snack: Grapes

Lunch: Salad (Spinach, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Onions, Peppers, Avocado, Snap Peas, Baked Chicken Breast, Balsamic Vinaigrette), Apple

Snack: Banana, Peanut Butter

Dinner: Chicken Chili & Rice (Long Grain White Rice, Garden Fresh Tomatoes, Chilies, Jalapenos, Peppers, Onions, Chicken Breast, Black Pepper, Salt, Crushed Red Pepper), Peas

I also drank PLENTY of water and successfully stayed away from artificial sweeteners. 

Since I didn't run today, I intend on running tomorrow! I will assume the plan as normal! Remember, just because things didn't go as planned doesn't mean you give up!!
