I finally made the effort to kick start my day with a little something in my belly (besides blubber). With all the physical issues I’ve had since I started this thing (back, toe, neck) I am getting an early start on the eating/health portion of my goal. I am certainly & very clearly in brutal shape and that’s that… period. I started my day by whipping up a heathy shake with the following ingredients:
- Vanilla Greek Yogurt (1 spoonful)
- Splash of OJ
- Handful of Oats
- 1 Egg White
- Frozen Kale
- 1/2 a Banana
- Frozen Fruit Medley
- Splash of Milk
It was a good start, tasty and surprisingly filling. I just winged the quantities but would love to try any ideas you may have. I’m shakin it baby…Bring the shake recipes on!
One thing I noticed today was the fact that I was hungry again by like 11:00am which for me is very unusual, especially since I ate a huge shake around 9:00 and don’t usually eat anything until around 1:30 in the afternoon. I know this is a good thing and that the more small meals I eat throughout the day the better it is for burning calories and fat through metabolism but my problem was having something healthy to snack on. I have never been a big fan of fruit. Sounds pathetic I know but I don’t like juice and I’m not a girl that needs her little snap of chocolate or candy. This is, I assume, why I don’t love fruit…it’s sweet. I loooove salty foods, fried foods, sautéed in butter foods. So, when I’m looking around the kitchen for something to nibble on I need to make damn sure I have something “good for me” to swallow. I am compiling ideas so again…bring em on. I will start by living by the motto “an apple a day…” and go from there. And until I can figure out something interesting to gnaw on, I will proceed with carrot sticks and cucumber.
Lastly, I thought I’d post this pic to keep me motivated. This girl has got killer gams and I will too…hopefully…someday. Peace out!
