How is everyone’s hump day going? Well mine has flown by! Here’s my mid week update of all the yummy food I’ve been enjoying while eating clean.
Today is day 3 of my clean eating week and I have been feeling really great! My energy is up (even without my coffee… trust me, I’m just as shocked as you!) and I can see that I’m a lot less bloated than normal. By the end of the day I especially notice that my bloating from eating all day isn’t as bad.
Now, everything hasn’t been all rainbows and sunshine. I have had some serious cravings. Also, to be honest I had a thin mint slip up yesterday that I would rather not talk about! But, overall I have been doing really well with nourishing my body with clean foods. The coolest thing I’ve noticed is that clean foods keep me fuller much longer!
Side note: Yesterday I enjoyed an amazing veggie burger with Ben at the Union. I don’t know if eating regular red meat again will taste as good after such a much healthier and tastier option like the veggie burger. The visit for burgers was impromptu, as was Ben’s visit to see me. A total surprise that completely shocked me!
We take the little things for granted like seeing your best friend every day… but when you haven’t seen your best friend for 2 weeks the surprise of them showing up at your dorm definitely improves the week! So, thank you Ben 🙂
So, I hope everyone takes a look around and says thank you for the small stuff and starts to appreciate everything. It will make your days much happier and you’ll feel the love I’m sure 🙂
So, here’s what I ate today:
For Breakfast I enjoyed a cocoa rice cake with all natural peanut butter and a banana on top… X2
Before class I was snacking on walnuts and a cutie! This was also my pre workout snack basically…
After working out I had an amazing piece of grilled chicken that I then combined with mixed greens, red onion, tomato, and broccoli.
I was super stuffed after that salad! But I snacked on strawberries pre-dinner.
For dinner I kept it simple with granola and skim milk… It was actually really delicious 🙂
