Good morning to all, it is coffee time and then running and a workout before work. A quick post before I make it happen on this sunny October Tuesday. I weighed in today, still stuck in the mid 160’s but to me maintaining is better than ever gaining. I will be consistent and break my plateau and get to goal. I am focusing on fitness and health first.
It was suggested to me to do a post about what I eat daily, and Sunday through Thursday I pretty much eat the same each day.
Monday was a good day, I did not skip any meals and I made sure to eat something at work. I do not really believe in rules, since I think it makes your mind a little crazy when you tell yourself you cannot have a particular food. With that said, I do eat clean and try to do the 80/20 rule. Most of my diet is clean, and then and now I sneak in a little treat. What is life without the finer things? Oh and coffee, coffee is a non negotiable every morning after my 16 oz of water and banana.
What I eat Sunday Through Thursday pretty much is the same, Friday night and Saturday I still eat healthy but I have a little more variety.
16 Oz water and then water every hour
coffee with sugar and non dairy cream, and a little inspirational reading before my workout
banana or two, and a ThinkThin bar, peanut butter or Brownie Crunch
After workout and running my Lunch
1 cup cottage cheese or greek yogurt, or two eggs
fruits, and veggies
1 slice Food for Life Ezekiel tst
On commute I either eat a few almonds, a kind bar, or pick up a kale smoothie with fruits and veggies and almond milk
Dinner at work
Chicken breast, veggies, and one sweet potato
Late night snack
dole chocolate covered bananas, 4 to a pack. Or fresh fruit. Sometimes I dip an apple in caramel sauce, just a little.
This is pretty much how I eat daily, with Saturdays as my day off I deviate a little. Friday nights I will eat something like a Homemade soup or Chicken Chili.
Like I said on weekend I may deviate a little and have a little San Francisco sourdough bread if we are out to dinner, or a little pizza or whatever we are eating. I try to also eat healthy when dining out. Last week on Saturday we went to the famous Sutro’s Cliff House restaurant and I had the vegan plate to stay in balance, with a little bread and butter. I was there for the view.
This was grains and mushrooms with a sweet potato cake and kale. I did have some bread with it, and a bit of butter,
That is pretty much how I roll on days I workout and work. It is easy to stick to my regimen on those days. Saturdays are the most challenging for me. I have tried cutting out carbs completely but it made me cranky. Off to run and workout. Have a sunshiny day and never give up.
Namaste’ love and light.
