Day 6: Whole30 Filipino Pork Ribs Adobo – Adobo is my comfort food. I grew up eating the dish and had many variations of it from pork, chicken, pork, and octopus. It has a rich savory sauce with from the soy sauce and vinegar. This adobo is whole30 approved by using coconut aminos instead of soy. It gives a sweet tropical flavor to it like being in the islands.
It’s the weekend! I made it to my Zumba class this morning and I felt great afterwards. I don’t know why I resist each time. The parking lot was full which meant the gym was full as well. Everyone’s new year’s resolution is going to the gym but it should really be eating clean because it’s really 95% of what you eat. It’s really about a lifestyle change in my opinion and choosing what you put into your body
I don’t know why I resist going to the gym. I always feel better afterwards like I can take the world by the storm or take a nap. My left knee was bothering me a little bit at certain dance moves so I slowed it down or didn’t jump as high or bent as low. I should probably get it looked at but I’m afraid what they’ll say. I’ll go when it really bothers me.
After class, I wanted to use the ab machine and upper body machines but it was too crowded. I can’t stand using machines after someone else has used it especially if they’ve been sweating profusely. It grosses me out out so I decided to resume my workout at home.
I’ve had this app called 30 day challenge on my phone for a while and today was the day I was finally going to use it because this whole month is about commitment and I am going to commit to 30 days of a better me. I had planned on doing just the ab challenge but it also had a pushup challenge so I wanted to do it as well to strengthen my chest, arms, and back.
The first day was easy. The only challenging about the ab one is the 15 sit-ups at which I used the couch to pin my feet down so I can do a sit up. Maybe one day, I’ll be able to sit up by myself without assistance. The push up challenge was easy with just 5 but I used my knees. Maybe by the end of the challenge, I’ll be able to do a pushup with my toes.
