I like to think that I'm a pretty healthy person. I run, I drink tons of water, take my vitamins, don't smoke, etc.. When it comes to eating, I'm usually a 80% good 20% bad kinda person. I eat good most of the day, but will have a treat at some point(fun size candy bar, ice cream cone, etc..). Lately though(since Easter) I've been more like 50/50. I'm not okay with this. I'm not going to tell you that I'm perfect with eating, I'm far from it. But I like to maintain healthy eating and I hate feeding myself so much junk. A splurge is normal, but not for two weeks straight, it's just not healthy. So I thought I'd do some "what I ate" posts for you guys to keep myself accountable. It's a slippery slope with me, this whole healthy eating thing. I used to eat really really really horribly. Then I started changing my diet(and by diet I don't mean I'm on a diet, it's a lifestyle change people!) and noticed how much better I felt when I ate better. Well needless to say, I can easily fall back into eating crap all the time. It's so much easier. Life's busy, so if I don't organize this is what happens. Food is the first thing that goes out the window.
I didn't photograph my drinks, coffee with sugar & coconut milk, peach green tea with a splash of lemon and water, water, water!
|breakfast - greek yogurt, strawberries & kashi go lean crunch (about 1/2 c), this was after I ate half of it, oops!|
|snack - Trader Joe's edamame crackers. my aunt got these for max for Easter in his basket and I stole them because they are SO tasty (Hi Aunt Vick! - i'll need more of these soon, hint hint :) )|
|lunch - leftover chicken chili lime burger from last night & some tomatoes in lime juice w/ adobo and cilantro|
picture in your head a chocolate & pretzel fiber one bar here for my afternoon snack - my phone died so no picture, sorry!
|dinner - taco "salad". the lovely baggers at the store crushed my taco shells, so i had crushed whole wheat taco shells, taco meat, reduced fat cheddar, homemade salsa, jalapenos and sour cream|
There ya have it..
