1) Pre workout: Bulletproof Coffee 2) Chicken thighs and brussel sprouts (finished the chicken at lunch) 3) Tritip, salad w/pumpkin seeds, sweet potato w/butter 4) Taco salad
*not pictured- 3 dates smeared w/ghee* This was not the best choice, but I'm being honest. It was definitely an "emotionally" driven food choice. I wanted them for the pure deliciousness of dates and ghee.
I haven't taken pictures of everything I've eaten lately, but here are the highlights. I had some off days, but things have generally been pretty clean. Striving for progress, not perfection...
1) Homemade "trail mix" w/banana 2) Post workout Green smoothie 3) Sausage & sautéed veggies 4) Eggs, melted leeks & apple 5) Chicken thigh lettuce wraps & olives 6) Black Coffee
1) Bulletproof Coffee [once or twice a week I drink this, otherwise it's black] 2) Summer salad & tuna wrapped in nori 3) Tuna & jicama sticks 4) Sausage, spinach & 2 eggs 5) Berry & spinach smoothie 6) Eggs, sautéed veggies and strawberries
I've been struggling off and on with an "I feel fat" mentality. There are days that are like that. I made a decision though to just walk a little straighter. Confidence is about more than how you're feeling. Walk proud, even if its hard some days... Head up, shoulders back and SMILE! You'll feel better, I know I did.
Now comes the fun part... Vacation. The kids get out of school on Thursday and we're hitting the road for a week. I'm going to bring good snacks to eat in the car, but I really don't know how the dinners and such will go. This is life, and reality. I'll squeeze in exercise where I can, and not stress overly much. This is all about making the healthy choices, one decision at a time...
Have a great week!!
