I'm happy to say today was a successful first day of Body For Life!!!

I woke up at 7am, chugged 2 cups of h20 and was at the gym by 7:30. 
I did my 20-minute HIIT and let me tell you... It was HARD!!!

Here's my routine: 
1 min @ 5.8
1 min @ 6.0
1 min @ 6.5
1 min @ 7.0
1 min @ 7.5
1 min @ 8.0

1 min @6.0
1 min @6.5
1 min @ 7.0
1 min @ 8.9 ---> Crazy hard!!!
1 min @ 4.0 (Cool down)
 Total time: 21:01 
Miles: 2.42
Average HR: 172 (wow, almost 85% of my max!!)

I came home and ate breakfast... 
1 container 0% chobani, 1/2 c Kashi Go Lean, small handful blueberries 
(I count the Greek yogurt as a protein because its so high in protein and low in carbs)

I spent the morning organizing my google calendar and doing laundry (yuck). 

My snack was fab... 

Chocolate protein powder + big squishy banana + 8oz h20 + handful of ice= heaven in a cup (and a half!)

Then my little sister proceeded to break my blender. 
Poo. Not happy. 

Lunch was delicious as well- I made a Janetha classic!!

1/2 c garbanzos, 1/2 c low fat cottage cheese, ranch seasoning, chopped up tomato and carrots on the side. 

My sis and I headed out to Staples for some back-to-school shopping (took WAY too long... giftcard issues, ugh)... and  I had this for a snack on the go:

Hershey's Cookies and Creme! I swear!!! Definitely buying this one again!

It didn't hold me until dinner though, I grabbed a small unpictured handful of grapes before cooking. 

Dinner was healthy but oh so yummy-
Baby baked sweet potato (love it!), Chicken rubbed with Spike seasoning and cooked in EVOO and chicken broth, sauteed mushrooms, steamed broccoli. 

Today's major project was this: 

I organized my pantry! Stuff we don't really use at the top, beans/cans/grains in the middle, 
breakfast stuff/snacks for my dad and sis on the bottom shelf... oils, dog food and onions/taters (and a large lunch box collection!) on the floor. I love organization! 

So it was a great day, clean eating, great exercise and I got a lot done. Oh, and I drank 10 cups of water and didn't even crave lemonade or diet soda!! Yay!

Ok, that's all for now folks. I think for meal # 6 I'll make another protein shake (minus blender... boo....)
