day 3 without sweets, what?! that’s crazy talk for me because I love sweets hehe :3 I feel so great though, not saying sweets are a bad thing, but it feels good to not have a sweet or two or three etc every day. I think it makes you appreciate them and crave them more :)
Breakfast: Greek yogurt with strawberries and kiwi, granola and almonds
Lunch: Chicken stirfry w/ edemame. swoon. this was very good, so i’m going to elaborate just a little. I had left over chicken from the night before as well as some brown rice that I didn’t want to go to waste. I sautéed red&green bell pepper, celery chunks, and carrot slices then added the chicken. I put about a tbs. or less of some Asian dressing to add the flavor and then served everything over the brown rice. DELISH! edemame was really good as well :)
Snack: Pink Lady apple (so sweet&crisp, I do recommend) w/ a Justin’s all natural PeanutButter package.
Dinner: Organic Black Bean and Kale soup, fish and mixed greens.
study snacks or add ons: cheese and grapes hehe
overall, day 3 went well. I went to the gym in the afternoon to run a mile and bike a little as well. I don’t want to go too crazy on cardio, but it feels great to incorporate especially when you eat a snack after!
When I was doing the yoga practice it called for, I set up a playlist, rolled out my mat in a Christmas lit room and turned on a vanilla scented scensy. I was supposed to be aware of my senses during practice. I did my own thing before the actual routine and was noticing how much I lack to pay attention and be mindful of everything around, even if they’re the subtle things. the practice really made me mindful to the point where I had dinner listening to the same playlist, in the room, mindfully tasting everything.. it was satisfying.
I think something I will continue to do is be aware of my surroundings, it makes me more in tune and in the present moment. I want to be aware and practice loving others
sore sore sore sore S O R E.
Wow, who knew a person could get sore after one day :(
it feels great to be sore, but i’m not used to it and it’s mainly my legs. I have to walk a lot on campus, what is this mess?! lol
1 mi run
Breakfast: egg white omelet w/ red&green bell peppers, spinach, swiss cheese (dash of pepper&cayenne) w/ my new bread; toasted SO YUMMY AND SATISFYING.
Lunch: tuna salad (spring and spinach mix, carrots, cucumber, bell peppers) balsamic dressing and pita chips!
Snack: grapes and almonds
Dinner: Chicken with brown rice, quinoa, & sweet potato mix along with some steamed broccoli :3 again, another satisfying meal!
I did the routine according to the book and did the two poses of the day, I also stretched on my own because of the soreness. I went to bed very early last night and i’m oh, so proud! Before 1:30, wowza.
Body image hasn’t really emerged which is good, however, I don’t want to be too obsessed with becoming ‘healthy’
anyway, time for a new day..coming up, breakfast :)
