DSC00975Wow, I never thought the biggest challenge would be formatting my tabs from my word doc. to WordPress. I’ve played around with formatting for some time–if anyone has any suggestions as to how I can fit six columns horizontally in WP, let me know.  I’d appreciate it!

With that said, I had to retype it vertically so I am only going to to show two meals.

Day 1

2 apple slices, w/peanut butter and 1 L of water.

We got a lot of snow, so keeping up with my usual outdoor activities was challenging. The good news (I think) was that shoveling heavy snow gave me a total body workout with major emphasis on my core and arms.  Proper body mechanics (bending hips and knees rather than at the waist and lower back) allowed me to do it ALL over again the next day when seven more inches fell in my area.

I was prepared for this storm, so I had plenty of ingredients and loads of time to prepare my meals and divide them for the week.

Moment of Weakness:

I did have some cabin fever, so I did snack a little more than usual. By day two of shoveling, I was sore all over, and therefore, I decided to give my body a break from any workout (especially triceps moves) for at least 24 hours.

How did you do this week?  I’d love to hear from you.

Week 2…Let’s Do It!
