today was better than most, and i managed to eat well and exercise [something that’s been one or the other lately]. as one of my friends tweeted recently “i love the way i feel when i am working out and eating healthy but sometimes laying around and stuffing my face feels just as good”
thank god today was a healthy feel good day instead of laying on the couch eating chocolate feel good day. sometimes its hard to stay away from the sweets and the carbs, but you just have to think to yourself “how bad do you want this? how long have you wanted to be healthy and have the body of your dreams?” it all starts somewhere, and as little as one good day will bring you that much closer to your goal.
breakfast: egg white omelet [egg whites, reduced fat mozzarella cheese, smoked salmon, turkey breast]; green tea
lunch: salad [both fruit and vegetable]
- fruit salad: strawberries, blueberries, cantaloupe
- vege salad: mesclun, chickpeas, grilled chicken, balsamic vinegarette
dinner: salmon, broccoli, craisins
exercise: i did myself a favor and went to the gym straight from work as i tend to slip up when i come home from work and all i want to do is eat. i ended up doing the stair master for 25 minutes and burned 554 calories!! after that i did a little bit of weight lifting and hit the showers.
i love the way i feel after a healthy day, definitely better than an unhealthy day; so i just have to hold onto this feeling and remember how good i felt when im too lazy to exercise or im craving chocolate, and before i know it, ill be looking great once again.
