I’ll talk about this more tomorrow but I am really trying to get back on track with my eating. Not that I’m eating terribly, but I’m definitely not as focused on eating REAL and healthy foods as I have been in the past. My brain is stuck in the “I’m breastfeeding so I can still eat whatever I want” mode. But, as you’ll see tomorrow, that’s not really working for me. So, no more excuses – good eating starts NOW! (Well, this started Monday, but you understand!)
Hit up the gym for some cross training on the Arc Trainer and a CrossFit workout. (Something I’ll talk about more tomorrow.) I’m a few days behind the WOD (workout of the day) on their website, so Monday’s workout was Tabata This! It freaking sucked. I used to love tabatas because they challenged me but didn’t kill me. This KILLED me. I used to be able to do 15 situps with each of the 8 rounds (20 seconds on, 10 seconds off) – now, I start burning out after my 3rd round. *sigh* I will get my abs back if it kills me!
As I was drinking my protein shake as I left the gym, I realized that I meant to run on Monday since I have something after school Thursday! Shoot. Looks like one early morning run this week, if I feel up to it. If not, oh well!
I was feeling something quick after the gym, so a bowl of frozen blueberries + Honey Nut Cheerios with soymilk filled me up. With a scoop of peanut butter for some extra protein + healthy fats.
Angela posted this recipe Monday morning and I just so happened to have all the ingredients on hand! I absolutely LOVE tuna salad and have missed it a little since going vegetarian 4 years ago. This definitely lived up to it!
No-tuna salad on Great Harvest Honey Wheat with a little mayo and spinach and some maters on the side. And a Godiva square to satisfy my sweet tooth (I didn’t eat the whole bar – just a piece)!
Gotta start cutting back on my Goldfish cracker intake. An apple with an ounce of cheddar so I still have my cheesy and crunch that I was craving!
I didn’t realize until I started making it that I used 2 of Angela’s recipes! Pumpkin Mac + Cheeze (made with nutritional yeast – I know, you’re grossed out, right Debbie?!) with some green peas + broccoli to health-it-up a bit more! Matt just said it tasted like pasta with goo, not very cheesy. But, I liked it!
Get excited: I actually will have a recipe for you guys this week! These cookies are fabulous! Chocolate peanut butter Oreo stuffed cookies. Oh yes, heavenly…
I still can’t pass up my dessert cravings, but I can watch my portions a bit better!
What have your excuses been lately? Are you trying to get back on track still after the holidays?
