November Goals

Monday, November 03, 2014

I have set my November goals and thought it would be great to blog about them so that everyone can see them. ACCOUNTABILITY!

1. Eat Clean a minimum of 80% of each week
2. Load up on Veggies and Fruits (minimum 5 each day)
3. Begin painting again
4. Walk 10,000 steps each day
5. Get to the gym 3 times per week
6. Work my PT at home so that I can get better quicker

emoticon and I am ready!

Wasn't as hungry yesterday, but I was prepping for an event in the evening and I think that had something to do with it. I also drank a lot of water!!

Clean Eating Day 6-10

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

I have been MIA due to travel and a hectic work schedule. Day 6-10 have been good. I have not been 100% clean, but I am making good choices and trying to stick to eating 6 small meals per day.

My weigh-in is tomorrow morning. I am hoping for 1-2lbs lost.

Found a whole foods that is huge and amazing! I am super excited to go again this weekend. It is about 35-40 minutes away, but it is so worth it. The two that are only 15 minutes away from me are super small and the variety is limited.

Happy Wednesday!


Clean Eating Day 4 & 5

Friday, October 24, 2014

Oops - I wrote an entire blog yesterday and never hit post!

Alas, Day 4 was good. I had a headache in the afternoon and a co-worker brought me my afternoon snack since I was covering in a different part of the School and couldn't leave the desk to retrieve it. That was super nice of her.

Got home and still had a headache and just felt exhausted. My hubby had a long day at work and when we got home - neither of us felt like cooking. I mentioned going to a chinese restaurant because I could get brown rice and steamed veggies. He immediately said SUSHI - which for those who know me know that I could eat sushi every single day of my life and never tire of it. I actually did eat sushi for like 17 days straight one time. But, I digress.

I looked online for good alternatives when going for sushi and found that I should eat sashimi/nigri or rolls with little to no sauces on them. I chose an eel avocado roll, a softshell crab roll, and a spicy yellowtail roll. We also had edamame. I should have not gotten the yellowtail - i was full and it wasn't that great! Lesson learned.

Overall, I am not mad at myself. I am dusting myself off for Day 5 and for the weekend. I am focused and know that it is 100% or nothing; I am learning the process and want to enjoy my life!

Day 5 is today! I started off with my greek yogurt and I have packed a 1/2 pear with cottage cheese for my morning and afternoon snacks. We did not have any left overs for today, so I am going to most likely go to a restaurant nearby that makes fresh and delicious food! Dinner is with friends tonight at their home. They are the clean eaters, so overall, I am feeling good about today and ready for the weekend.

I will most likely not post a Day 6 stand alone blog because of being out of town, but I will post Sunday for Day 6 & Day 7.

On another note, today is my 2nd session of Physical Therapy. I am still having lots of pain! Wish me well sparkfriends!

    It should have read, "it is not 100% or nothing!"

    I can't imagine how tough clean eating must be; it's a total revamping of how most people eat. I applaud you for making it happen; you can do this!! What exactly are the rules for Clean Eating? No flour, sugars, or processed foods?

Clean Eating Day 3

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Well, a friend of mine told me that the sugar headache would come on Day 3 and boy was she right. I thought it was just a sinus headache until I realized that today is Day 3 and I have hardly had any sugar.

I am fighting through the headache and ready for Day 3. I am well prepared for at lunch so that I do not get tempted with the yummy offerings here at the School. I was almost tempted yesterday at lunch, but I held strong and am glad that I did. I splurged at dinner and had a whole wheat roll with my pork BBQ (which on some clean eating plans is acceptable) and I also went to get non-dairy frozen yogurt and only added fresh strawberries, kiwi, and sliced almonds.

Day 3 Plan
Breakfast: 2 eggs, spinach, small amt. of cheese, salsa, Almond Milk - 1/2 cup

Snack 1: Pear (1/2) and cottage cheese

Lunch: Pork BBQ (left overs) on whole wheat roll; veggie

Snack 2: Carrots with hummus

Dinner: Lettuce wraps - lean ground beef, taco seasoning (homemade), tomatoes, onion, salsa with a side of spanish rice

Snack 3: Chocolate/Avocado pudding (new recipe) - trying for the first time tonight!

This weekend we are going to visit friends in Annapolis and I am super excited. They also eat clean and I am looking forward to learning some new recipes and have a great time laughing!

Until tomorrow Spark friends, until tomorrow!
