Net calories – 720
Based on getting a big order this weekend, I made a big decision: I finally ordered a Vitamix! My vegan friends have been raving about them and telling me to get one for ages, and because my client photoshoot this weekend covers the cost (I love my clients! <3), I finally shelled out for a $330 reconditioned one. It’s amazing they offer such a deal, considering the brand new model is $430–reconditioned ones are just like new but were either lightly used at demonstrations, or returned by someone within the 30 day grace period. A hundred dollars is totally worth the possibility of a scuff or two!
Depending on how much I fall in love with it (I have a feeling I’ll be very, very in love with it), I’m considering trying a 30 day juice challenge of sorts by making new green smoothies every day!
In less exciting news, I felt easily fatigued and weak today while lifting–I have a feeling it’s the calorie deficit and my rather lackluster food choices this morning. But I still finished my planned routine (at lightning speed, somehow.. perhaps I just wasn’t resting long enough) despite it. Can’t wait to lose the fat and get back into muscle building mode.
