Day 2 of Lifestyle Change

Today went just as well as the first. I upped the calorie intake just a little in the interest of health. My breakfast was the same today as yesterday, with the exception of

1/3 of a small croissant

Calories: about 40     Fat: 2g

Total Breakfast: Calories- 249      Fat- 7g

My morning workout was similar to the 1st day, only this time I did the Tuesday one (obviously) In addition I did some house work, which I normally wouldn’t count, but here in Thailand everything feels like a workout. You can’t sit without sweating! I kind of love it!!! Another thing I am loving about Thailand is the access to good food for super cheap. Which leads me to my awesome lunch…

This was such a filling lunch, it was great!!! And it tasted so fresh, I love the open air market here in Hua Hin, the ingredients are always fresh and direct from the source! The rest of the day was spent reading and resting, because I wasn’t feeling quite up to snuff. Though I was well enough to make one amazing dinner! Even my husband loved it, who can at times be a bit reticent to love the healthy meals.
