Shaking things up....

Monday, July 01, 2013

In trying to shake things up for my body I started doing some Cross Fit workouts. I also thought I should shake things up with my nutrition too.

I hate being in a rut and it feels like I have been in one for a long time. My body is used to my workouts but it is also used to my food. I generally eat the same things all the time. I eat healthy but then I also have the occasional treat. One thing that I noticed with my diet is that I eat way too many carbs.

So starting this week I am shaking things up and gonna try to eliminate most of the carbs from my diet. I want to see how my body reacts with this experiment. It will be tough because my quick go-to meal is a sandwich. Now I may just have to have meat and cheese rolled up. But that is alright! This whole life change is about trying out new things and seeing what works for you.

So here is a peak at my meals....

Fresh fruit cut and prepped and ready to grab!

And my lunch for today......

This morning I had a protein smoothie made with almond milk, vanilla protein powder, strawberries, and blueberries. Yum!

I will let you all know if this works! Thanks for all the support!

    Great job on trying new stuff! I think our bodies do need challenged and what works for some does not work for others. You'll find what works for you!

    Love smoothies do many of those. Just remember not to be a stick in the mud but fruit has quite a few carbs good carbs but carbs. I have to shake up my work out and diet all the time. I also bounce my calories to wake up my system. Keep dazzling diamond girl!

    very cool. I am trying some similar stuff. Cutting back on carbs (but not fruit & veggie carbs!) and upping the protein.

    My daily feedback for food are also high on the carb side... and low on protein.
I am too trying to add more protein to my meals and I find it to be a challenge.
You know that fruit and veggies are carbs! - but I see them as good carbs, because you need some to help you go the long way and have the energy for your workouts....
I am trying to limit my starch and fast carbs (white bread and sugar...) and replace it with the slow carbs (whole grains, fruit, veggies oatmeal and beans )... I am taking an hard boil egg with fresh cut veggies for lunch tomorrow and I made some PB and Fig Balls for snack... My friend at work is having a shake every morning and she has been talking me into starting my day with one. Your shake recipe always look so good and protein shake is something I should give a try...
Keep us posted! I love reading your blogs!
