1) What did you consume?
The banana, too many pumpkin bars, some almonds, a barbacoa salad from Chipotle and a scrambled egg.
2) Were you active and what did you do?
Yes, I went to CrossFit and worked out with mediocre performance. But I realized that I forgot to brag (let's call a spade a spade) about having done 55 strict pull-ups during the WOD on Friday–A huge accomplishment for me. Basically it's like I've taken off a 10lb weight vest. All bar work feels exponentially easier.
Still not worth it.
3) Did you complete the lifestyle challenge?
Yes, by my own standards.
4) Did you cheat/lie?
Gum and Skittles
5) How do you feel?
Feeling OK. But let's talk for a second about how awesome my dad is. Everyday, as I've said before, he brings me a banana, a bag of almonds and usually some additional fruit. The fruit always disappears, but I learned early into the challenge that eating too many nuts was giving me headaches. However, I always gladly and thankfully accept his food gifts for two reasons:
- Never, ever turn down free food. Ever.
- It's a really nice reminder of why I am doing the Whole Life Challenge and the amazing people in my life who support me everyday.
The end result, however is the absolutely hilarious amount of almonds in my desk drawer. Probably a gallon spread across a bevy of ziplock bags:
Rest assured these almonds will be eaten. And probably my dad will read this (thanks, Dad!) and decide tomorrow morning that maybe I don't need anymore almonds, per se. But those little bags of almonds and I have been through some hard times (First World problems), and I appreciate my family's support, since I know not everyone has that luxury (real talk).
