Adventures in Clean Eating
Wednesday, June 06, 2012
My wedding is in a little more than a month. Holy shtiballs. I feel so unprepared for everything. We still have no cake, no flowers, no DJ, and no string trio. At lease I'm happy about my dress and shoes (so far... it had to be altered so so much because I went last minute and had to buy a way bigger size off the rack). Freaking out aside, I've been eating very clean for about 2 weeks now and I can really tell a difference. I'm leaning out in a way I never have before. I'm still running and lifting, but right now, liftining is more important to me now that I'm seeing cuts in my arms!
It seems preparing allll the food and chopping veggies and fruit while staying away from processed stuff (crackers, bread, cereal, etc.) is not the hard part for me. Even eating out I can make it work, but it's the timing! And eating alllll the food. Eggs/egg whites & veggies is perfect in the morning for me... but a turkey burger & veggies as a morning snack? It's just weird to me and hard to adjust to. Whatever. Practice makes... umm... better. And at least I'm never hungry. I'll be doing a food blog at some point in the near future, like this afternoon...
Also, random, but I got Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30. It's really hard, really fast, and I like it. Aaaand I love love love greek yogurt, feta cheese and cottage cheese, and that's about all the dairy I eat (the thought of milk itself makes me wanna blow chunks) but lately I've been feeling weird after I eat it, so I'm cutting it out for a bit. I'm still going to make my broccoli slaw and chicken salad with it, but I mean I'm not consuming cups of it at a time anymore. We'll see.
