Good morning love, it is 5:33 am and I can’t sleep. I figure I’ve got about half an hour before my husband drags me back to bed so I thought I would share a quick post. It is Thursday after all 🙂
I get a LOT of questions about what I’m eating and if I exercise. I eat a lot and I don’t really exercise. The key is to eat good food.I bike with my husband here and there and we hike all together maybe once a month. In a good month. The biking burns a lot of calories we log around 3 miles per trip, with a toddler in bike trailer attached to one of our bikes. The further along I get the harder it is for me to bike, shocker. I also get winded really easily, I usually have to stop twice before even making to the trail. The last time I went biking was on our anniversary, April 24th so about a month ago. I was all hyped up too because I got an awesome pink mountain bike as a gift! Thanks, Husband. Say what? Yes, it’s a pink Mongoose. It’s very Sex and the City meets Nat-Geo. Anyway, I digress.
What I am eating lately.
BREAKFAST:Blended watermelon, 40 oz 324 calories
I am obsessed with blended watermelon. I just chop it and put it right into the vitamix and puour into my water bottle.
SNACK: Fresh sweet cherries, 2 cups 180 calories & 1 liter of water
Lunch: Salad with fruit or melon.
This varies in calories but it is always large. Red leaf lettuce, 1/2 avocado, 1 c. cherry tomatoes, red onion seasoned with salt & pepper and topped with my homemade balsamic reduction. with an orange on the side. Because I am hungry hungry hippo.
SNACK2: More oranges, probably 2-3 large, approx 207 calories
Dinner: Steamed broccoli/cauliflower (2c. 108 calories), 1 baked potato (129 calories), steamed kale with nutritional yeast (2c. 72 calories).
So this is a basic day. It does not include any random craving I might have. Today I had a craving for tamales and went to Taco El Norte. It was pretty awesome. I don’t stop myself from eating anything but I have a rule that I don’t eat anything I don’t really want, or that isn’t absolutely delicious. Why waste the calories? So example; I ordered a pizza from Lou Malnati’s and it wasn’t the delicious pizza I had imagined, it didn’t hit the spot. So I didn’t eat it, I had 2 bowls of cherries instead. They were super delicious.
