We are half way through the week and I’m full of energy thanks to my clean eating and of course my big challenge group that is keeping me super motivated and excited!
I am happy to share another WIAW (What I ate Wednesday) post thanks to Jenn.
Yesterday I woke up around 6am, started my day with a big old glass of water and then about 20 minutes later drank a cup of coffee with a little almond milk.
Breakfast was SO good. I figured I would give measurement details again like last week because we are focusing on portions with our clean eating challenge. I had a VEGGIE SCRAMBLE 1 egg, 1 cup egg whites, 1 tsp olive oil with 1/4 cup diced peppers + 1/4 cup sliced mushrooms and 1 medium potato sliced. I love breakfast.
Snack time was 2 Celery Stalks with 1 tsp almond butter
and a banana.
I have decided that salads at lunch time work for me.. salads at dinner do not and I can’t tell you why!! So for lunch I had a LARGE SALAD (this picture makes it looks small) 2 cups mixed greens, 1/4 cup avocado, 1/2 cucumber, 1/4 cup tomatoes, 1 piece of grilled dijon chicken, 1 tbsp balsamic with olive oil.
I also had 2 deli slices of turkey (not pictured) I ate this after my afternoon workout.
Mid-afternoon I had a Greek yogurt with 1/2 cup blueberries & 1 tbsp crushed almonds
Before dinner I took Cooper and Ava for a walk.. I thought it was warmer out then it was so we didn’t last long because Ava didn’t have gloves on!
Food that’s ready to go in the fridge is always my style. I had Leftover Chicken Stir fry (broccoli asparagus, eggplant) with 1/2 cup brown rice for dinner. I didn’t measure the chicken or veggies sorry!
Post Boot Camp I had a Chocolate Shakeology while watching New Girl! Does anyone else love that show?
Before I wrap this up.. can I tell you that on Monday Marc and I threw out our leftover Chocolate lava cakes from this weekend. Do you know how HARD that was for me?? I thought about them sitting in the garbage and it kinda got me sad. BUTTTT I feel better without that sugar and sometimes I feel like when I eat sugary desserts it just makes me want more. Do you feel me?
I am happy to say that I have had no cravings today and I thank that to not eating any sugar or packaged products!
Do you find eating sugar makes you crave sugar?
What was your favorite healthy meal or snack from yesterday?
