My workouts are getting easier. I'm not as sore when I finish. I had to cut out the lunges, though, because they hurt my knees too much. I've had trouble with my knees for years, and the lunges are causing them to flare up again. So I've stopped the lunges and my knees are doing much better :) My legs aren't anywhere near as sore after I finish my workouts as they were when I first started! I'm quite happy with that! Tomorrow I'm going to get some dumbbells. I think I'll start with 3kg and work my way up from there.
I ended up eating ice cream last weekend, so I didn't have my bottle of pop. (I'm allowed one bottle a week according to my challenge goal). And I'm enjoying eating paleo meals :) I've tried a few dishes with great success.
The first dish I made was Shawarma salad and the marinade turned out great! I also discovered that I like spinach in salads. Until now I've only ever been able to eat it in 3 cheese spinach dip. My second dish was Taco salad. That went over great and I learned that mild salsa works great as a salad dressing! The other night I made bacony chicken with sweet potato mash and asparagus with a side salad. That was delicious! And tonight I made Zucchini Lasagna! I HATE zucchini!! But I love this zucchini lasagna! I made enough for 3 servings! It's so good! I am so happy with it! =D
I've been walking through the outskirts of town along the rice paddy fields and I have plotted a route that I want to use for jogging. It takes me about 25 minutes to walk it and I can add onto it as my endurance and stamina build up. The path I take home can go straight down to the beach and there is also a walking path there too :) But for now I'll be sticking to the fields and mountainous area for my runs. However, it's still too hot and humid to attempt running. I get drenched just by walking that route in this weather. I am really looking forward to cooler weather!
