Day 2 is in the Books!

Today was an awkward day for me. Usually when I don't eat for long periods of time, my stomach feels like it wants to eat every organ in my body...and you can hear it trying from a mile away. However, today I didn't feel hungry at all until the late afternoon. Weird...??

Anyway, I woke up later than I wanted to today (8:45) but I needed to get a move on because I had a final at 9:30. I did a mix of jumping rope, jumping jacks, high knees, and butt kicks to get my heart rate up for a little bit and then I did what any working girl-on-the-go would do...COFFEE AND WATER TO GO PLEASE!

Today I was determined to drink at least 110 oz. of water (which I should be doing anyway--even though it's way more then half of my body weight). I stole 2 water bottles from my fridge (the one thing I absolutely HAVE to have in my refrigerator at all times)...and I packed my coffee just with some skim milk and Stevia (just like yesterday!)

After destroying my final (in a good way!) I came home to make some breakfast--the Protein Pancake! Personally, I don't care for the mix of ingredients in this meal (flaxseed, blueberries, bananas, protein, and egg whites) so I opted out of the banana and had it on the side!

It looks like a small amount but it is very filling! In the awesome Maryland cup? Water!

We have company coming this weekend from Georgia so I went to cleaning the house! Sometimes putting some "elbow grease" in it feels like a workout in itself!

Thanks to Sean, I got my oil changed in my car today but not before I had my amazing snack I consumed yesterday (half an apple, peanut butter, and granola!)

Other than that I really didn't get hungry throughout the day...

Once home I made a Protein Shake (the same as yesterday) and did a workout. Thanks to Jillian Michaels I once again completed the 30 Day Shred for a 2nd day in a row...Level 1. I was definitely feeling rather sore from yesterday, especially in my calves and pecs but I even went on to do a workout from her 6 Week Abs DVD... Do work!

Thankfully, I had some left over fish from yesterday so I heated that up with a mix of veggies (carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower) for dinner!

Nom nom nom...

Thanks to a little online retail therapy:

I am ready to go to sleep!

Thankfully my Cinnamon Apple Tea always puts me in the mood for bed!

I love my Starbucks coasters too!

I have an early wake up call tomorrow to meet up with my Baltimore Workout Crew. I love how these girls inspire and motivate me!

We have had to move our workouts inside--it's freezing!!

However, this is a view I would always get up for:

Beautiful Baltimore!

I will be back tomorrow to recap Day 3...Sorry Day 2 wasn't more exciting :(

I hope you all are excited for your Friday! May you embrace it with excitement and conquer it...on your own two feet...

Until the next step bloggers...
