eating plan & pics

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

I'm really motivated right now. It's true that what's in motion stays in motion and what sits still, stays still. I have 22 days now of eating primal foods (real food). I think I have an idea of what the 80/20 principal looks like for me. It is allowing one treat of bread and one treat of sweet per week (IF, I want it!) Having this specific guideline really works well for me mentally. And that is oh, so important to me. The mental part has to be on track.

My protein/fat/carb ratio has been looking like this (except some days the protein is much higher than the fat - the fat and protein kind of alternate, but the carb has been staying about 30-40%):

Since I have PCOS, it is medically recommended that I eat high fat/low carb and I cannot believe how much better I feel! I am eating good fats, not junk. I even made it through my period WITHOUT going nutso on sweets! That has NEVER happened before. Ever. My calories have been like this:

This way of eating is leaving me very full. I don't binge. I have high energy. I completed my training last night and felt awesome. I'm sleeping good at night, too. That's a good thing. I feel like I am really "on the beam" so to speak.

Also, I did just a short walk on the way to work this morning. Yes, in my flip flops... I was running early to work, and just thought some fresh air would feel good!

    I'm eating all primal foods too these days. It's amazing how much better my digestion is because of that.
