Bottomless Pit, Level 2 and Superbowl Eats

(This was supposed to be posted yesterday, so I'm posting it now!)

I feel like I've been eating non-stop, and I pretty much have been. I just can't get full! Although I've been hungry all day I'm still keeping it healthy. Oatmeal for breakfast, veggies and chicken for lunch, fruit for a snack, and a chocolate peppermint luna bar (so good!).

I also did level 2 in the 30 day shred, this is the first time I've done the shred in probably a week? Level 1 I thought was pretty easy. Level 2 is a whole different story! I was sweating in the first five minutes and dripping sweat by the end. I took several breaks, my body just couldn't handle it. It was definitely more challenging, so just a warning for you!

After yesterdays WOD my hamstrings and lower back were just a bit sore but that's it. Not the extreme soreness I had been fore warned about. The weight I used was heavy for me, but did that mean I didn't use enough? Wasn't doing the move right? Or do I already have quads of steel that it was no problem? I'm not really sure but maybe DOMS will make an appearance tomorrow.

Speaking of tomorrow, I'm really hoping to get a run in. It's supposed to be sunny but still well below 0, I'm just going to suck it up and do it! Especially with it being Superbowl Sunday, not that I'm going to splurge tons (I'm making my own dinner) but any extra treats that I do consume I'll burn off beforehand :). I'm planning on making chicken tacos using lettuce as my tortilla with sweet potato fries. It's really good. And might do a little baking in the form of gluten free chocolate chip cookies. Healthy eating doesn't have to be boring, you can still enjoy all your favorite foods in healthy ways! When making nachos, use low fat sour cream (or plain greek yogurt), low fat cheese and black beans instead of refried. Bake your wings instead of frying them and buy baked chips instead of the usual Lays. Kettle has baked chips that are pretty good, pop chips are another option!

Hope everyone enjoys their superbowl eats, it's just one day. Just moderator how much you eat!
