Today has been a real struggle on the diet front. I am very serious about seeing results, and I know the only way that I am going to do this is to get my diet under control.
My food today was as follows:
Breakfast: Plain greek yogurt, agave nectar to taste, and a banana on top
Mid Morning Meal: Protein Shake
Lunch: Chicken Breast, Green Beans, 1/2 a sweet potato
Dinner: Tuna, Broccoli, 1/2 a sweet potato
The only picture I got was of dinner. Sorry!
I plan on having a protein shake in a couple hours and then a BCAA drink right before I got to bed.
The meals have only been successful because I made most of my meals on Sunday night, but I am sitting here right now and all I can think about is what I want to eat. I have never had to have willpower this strong and I really had no idea there were going to be nights that were this hard. I guess I truly did have a “food addiction” as strange as that may sound.
I want to be honest on this blog and let you know that it is NOT always easy and there are days when I really struggle to stay healthy and eat lean.
Tonight at the gym helped me feel a little bit better. I went in feeling really bloated I think from eating more than I normally do (even though it was lean). I knew I had a little bit milder workout on tap for tonight. I started off with some simple walking for 15 minutes and then hit the ab work with the husband.
Here is a progress picture of the abs:
I know I have a long long way to go, but every little picture helps me see that slowly but surely the progress will come.
Thanks for listening to my rants tonight about my frustrations. I truly know that I can do this and I can make the changes I want to see. I know some nights/days are going to be tougher than others. I am ready to push through and I am ready to make these changes in my life. I am so lucky to have such supportive people around me and this blog as my outlet.
I am going to leave you with this quote, because it is definitely something I need to keep in mind.
I have come THIS far and I will not give up now, not ever.
