Day 22 Exercise Streak: Butt Blaster, Bike Ride, Abs, Obliques, Hips, Lower Back and a Disgusting D

Tuesday, May 01, 2018

I started exercising before work by doing butt blasters. That's all I had time for because I diddle daddle, dawdle, and procrastinate. I worked late. Probably the 2nd to the last teacher to leave, did laundry (Did I mention that I procrastinate?), and then rode my bike. I need to take advantage while the weather is nice.

I usually do laundry on weekends but I had a lot of grading, had a school event, and rode my bike for hours Sat. and Sun. So, I did it today.

After the bike ride I did a Coach Nicole video which worked my abs, obliques, lower back, and hips.

You've been waiting for this...

The disgusting decision. I stopped at Taco Bell. I have not had a Mexican Pizza from TB in probably 15-20 years. I used to like them so much I had to make a concerted effort to give them up.

What in the heck was I thinking? A wave of nostalgia hit me today and my steering wheel began to turn into TB. Why?! I have no explanation. It was pure madness.

I ordered a Mexican Pizza. I ate it later.

It was not worth it.
It was disgusting.

Eating healthy veggies and fruits and limiting processed foods has changed my tastebuds for the better. Seriously, why did I crave Mexican Pizza years ago? What was wrong with me?

Looking on the bright side, I am glad I realized how horrid TB food is. I normally don't eat fast food. Maybe a salad, but that is it. I sometimes get the McD's southwest salad with light Newman's Own Balsamic Dressing about 35 calories a package.

But I don't like the amount of sodium in restaurant and processed grocery store foods.

This morning my BP was great (and that is without medication anymore). Is that why I stopped? Did I subconciously think the excessive salt wouldn't hurt me. I'll take my BP again in a few minutes to see.

Lesson learned. I won't make that mistake again.

    The only thing I get at McD's for b'fast is eggwhite delight, no butter, 7 pts. I have had that salad you mentioned, hold the cheese, no dressing. It was delish!

    TB--NEVER. And I used to love it like you! Probably was the fat intake, what's not to love about ooy gooey cheese? It's been at least 10 years.

    Sounds like you are still doing a great job even with the stop at Taco Bell. It happens to all of us. Something sounds so good and then you realize that it really isn't as good as we remember. Enjoy your Wednesday!
