Clean Eating, Take 1
Hey guys! I hope this little update finds you living well wherever you're reading from today. I for one am doing great; Tuesdays are long days but they're generally good days, full of clients that keep me moving and I'm thankful to thoroughly enjoy what I do for work!
Moreover, Tuesdays mean Tuesday Trainer - and I'm participating this week! Here's a preview of my move that I submitted:
Yesterday I talked about my goal for the week, which is to eat clean all week long. I wanted to keep myself accountable to this goal by doing something many other bloggers do: photograph their daily eats! While this isn't a regular pattern of mine and I don't plan to continue it, it certainly made me think about what I eat (similar to keeping a food journal, I suppose) and I thought I'd share what yesterday looked like. Today will likely be similar! So, starting off in the morning, mainly for personal accountability purposes, here's yesterday's eats:
Insert: off to the gym to train a couple clients back-to-back, which called for an in-between bite of:
Insert: my own workout - check back tomorrow for a workout video you can do with only 1 piece of equipment!
Insert: finally lunch at 3:15 pm:
Insert: training another client, feeling like I needed something with more "omphf" afterward:
Insert: training home client outside at the park. Beautiful night, great circuit, hard worker, SWEAT.
(great job, April!)
Insert: Home! Minimal snackage which turned into a light dinner (still full from my late lunch):
...and that was it! Plus a cup of tea. Although my dinner was essentially banana bread, I was still happy with my food choices and was mindful all day. I even poured myself some salsa with pita chips but then realized I didn't want or need them and put them back (that never happens!). I'm focused this week and it feels good!
While I'm not photographing everything today, I'm trying to stay mindful and excited about how I know I'll feel when I eat clean after a week of dedicated fueling: it's just worth the will power to say "no thanks" (I rarely deprive myself!) and to feel good with healthy decisions.
How's your food willpower? Do you struggle with a sweet tooth or salty foods? How do you keep yourself accountable to eating clean? Share your tips with me!
Like I said above, tune in for a great workout you can follow along with tomorrow via video! Excited to share one with you. Have a great Tuesday, friends! Live well & be well,
