Day ten and we are basically halfway through the fix. I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling good (even if you aren’t doing it with me and you’re feeling good for me, that works too). The only thing that I’m not getting enough of is sleep, mostly because of this blog since I have to finish it after dinner. I’m sure I am technically getting enough, I just like to sleep more than most people. I could sleep a week straight if I wanted to and I can fall asleep anywhere and sleep through anything. Maybe it’s because my dreams are magical, but I think it’s mostly because being horizontal just feels so good. This is especially true when you’re surrounded by feathers. I obviously don’t have much to say today, so let’s dive in to the daily workout and eats.
Lower Fix –
I stopped by Wal-Mart when I was out today and picked up some weights. I was looking for 12lb free weights but they didn’t have any. I knew 15 would be a little much, especially for upper fix so I just got 10lbs. I’m not sure if they will make much of a difference, but we shall see. I also bought a heavy resistance band so I could try that out. I figured it would be great for traveling too!
Leg day felt good, but I feel like I could have pushed it a little more and would have had a better workout with 12lb weights. I say that now that it’s over with; I may not have said that while I was in the midst of it. I’m hoping I will feel sore tomorrow. I’m not saying it was easy, I’m just saying that I think I can be tougher! Pilates is tomorrow so I may try to find time to do a double workout and get in some more strength training tomorrow.

- Scrambled eggs with shredded cheddar
- Turkey Sausage
So I bought this turkey sausage like a week ago and have yet to make it because I haven’t really felt like eating it. I just went to the store a couple of days ago and bought this other sausage that my boyfriend really likes. When I was making that for him this morning I deceided to try the turkey sausage and you know what? I just isn’t the same. I love sausages and maybe that sounds gross, but I don’t care. I’ll shout it from the rooftops, because it’s true! I made two patties and ate 1 1/4th. I think I’ll put rest in a turkey meatza or turkey meatloaf later on this week. Sausage Fail.

- Chicken & hummus
I brought leftover fajita mix from last night for lunch today and had some extra chicken for the hummus I’ve been craving. Good little snack to get me through until lunch. Gotta get that, gotta get that Pro-tein!

- Leftover fajita mix
- black beans
For lunch I just packed leftovers from last night (which I already told you). A yellow scoop of blackbeans and a Red scoop of fajita mix. I didn’t seperate the veggies out from the chicken to measure, but it was mostly chicken so that’s what I’m counting. It was yummy cold too!

- Strawberry, Spinach, Carrot Smoothie with almond milk
I found out that if you go to a juice bar you can order anything you want. I mean they have all the ingredients so why not ask? Tasted just like the one I make at home. I get weird looks wherever I go, so I’m used to it. You may not be. It kind of helps to be an actor, because sometimes you just find yourself experimenting on people.

- Tuna filet
- Broccoli & mushrooms
- Black beans
Dinner tonight was so yummy. It fulfilled all of my cravings even though I stuffed it down my throat in order to make a meeting with fellow actors tonight. Our meetings usually don’t get over until late so I wanted to make sure I ate beforehand and not after. Instead of using coconut oil tonight, I wanted a different flavor so I used ghee (a paleo friendly ingredient) which I love. It is clarified butter and used in a lot of Asian recipes. I also had two tsp of almond butter when I got back from my meeting, which ended earlier than usual due to lack of attendance. I didn’t like almond butter at first, but I have to say, it really makes me happy now!
Now I’m about to edit a little vlog for Friday. When it comes to fixin, Day 10 is done! You go girl!
