Happy almost Friday friends!
Have I told you all how happy I am to be back to my normal self? I take my health for granted way too much. It feels good to be back to not blowing my nose every 5 seconds or having to cough every time I open my mouth to speak!
This week I have been doing great at my Back-to-Clean Eating Challenge. I have been sticking to 5-6 meals a day, eating lots of veggies, protein, and complex carbs. I have felt so DE-BLOATED from the holidays and have had so much more energy!! I am kind of excited about date night on Saturday though, I am craving some fro-yo!!
Here is a look at some of my favorite meals.
Kashi Go Lean with almond milk and an egg white puff. Just put 4 egg whites in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 2 minutes, yum!
Peanut Butter Banana Protein Oats: 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup water, 1 tbsp PB, 1 scoop of protein powder, and 1/2 banana.
Brussels sprouts, carrots, trout and a small avocado.
Leftovers!!! Salmon, brown rice, veggies and a 1/2 an avocado.
I have been enjoying some pure protein bars, Greek yogurt, almonds and I really like these protein shakes in case you forget something.
Hubby’s famous vinegar chicken with brown rice and Brussels sprouts.
Cajun Tofu. I just seasoned with a little paprika and chili powder and backed for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Along with steamed spinach and brown rice.
Late Night snacks have included protein shakes, cottage cheese and cinnamon, celery, almond butter and Greek yogurt and berries.
I have done 3 workouts from my 12 week challenge and just one day of Kickboxing. I am really sticking to the new cardio for 30 days, because like I said I really want to see results.Â So far each day at the gym has been pretty short about 30-40 minutes and the workouts have been doable. I think I need to up the weight a little. For the first time ever I actually did the bar squat!! I never thought I would use this machine, I was pretty darn proud of myself.
Tomorrow, I am going to go for a light run with my friend Val and do Day 4. Time to cook dinner and then relax for the evening!!
How is your new year going so far?
