Hey everyone! Hope your weekend ended off on a good note Today was a pretty good day. I didn’t sleep too well last night… for some reason I woke up at 4:30 am and had trouble falling back asleep so I was up until 7 am. I woke up again at 8:30 and at that point I just got myself together for the day and made my trip to Whole Foods. I got there later than I would have liked so I had to deal with more idiots than usual on a Sunday morning but I got what I needed. Check out the haul!
Vega performance protein backup, strawberries, Daiya cheddar (for Kris Carr approved veggie quesadillas!), Rice flour gluten free crackers, 2 containers of stuffed grape leaves, frozen strawberries and 2 bags frozen blueberries, packets of hemp hearts (I won’t pay $12 for a bag but I’ll pay $1.50 for a packet! That way I won’t be stuck with a ton of seeds I may not use), carrots, honeycrisp apples, avocado and a cranberry orange Pure Bar.
After Whole Foods I dragged my ass to the gym and did 30 minutes of cardio. After that I did some laundry and then spent the rest of the day relaxing. It felt so good!
This is I guess my “brunch” since I didn’t eat until noon. I know that is bad but I was running around and just not hungry until after the gym. I had a snacky plate with a cut up carrot, some tomato, stuffed grape leaves, hummus and some of those gf rice crackers. They have a cardboard texture and pretty much no taste which is kind of exactly what I like :X Good meal all around.
I snacked on some grapes for an afternoon snack. No pic, sorry!
So the best part of this picture is that I took it at 6:45 pm using natural light! I love springing ahead
I had some of my thai leftovers tonight. I reheated it by sauteing it dry to try and get rid of some of the greasiness. I also threw in a big handful of spinach to try and get some more fresh veggies in there. It was a little better tonight, not quite as greasy but the tofu and eggplant still were pretty greasy since it all got soaked in. One more serving left.
If I get hungry later I’ll probably air pop some popcorn. It’s becoming a new favorite snack! I usually just enjoy it plain with a little sea salt. Sometimes simple is best.
So I’ve been eating pretty clean with an emphasis on high raw for a few months now and I’ve been reporting back on all of the positive changes I’ve been experiencing since then. I’m happy to give another update based on feedback I’ve gotten this week. I was told by three different people within the past week that my skin is glowing. This is not something that I would ever notice about myself but I guess I believe it now that I’ve been told by different people at different times. It’s kind of a nice side effect of eating clean. I’m sure my skin is also glowing from sweating profusely at least 5 times a week during my workouts
This is definitely nice to hear, especially since I don’t really like to wear makeup. It’s mostly me being lazy but also because it is stupid to put it on then take it off a few hours later to go to the gym. And I won’t be that girl that goes to the gym with makeup on. It makes me happy though that my skin apparently has a natural glow because someone told me once that I should really wear makeup because it makes everyone look better. I should tell her that she should eat more raw food because it makes everyone look better
That’s all I’ve got for today. I hope the weekend treated you all well! Back to the grind tomorrow. Hopefully I’ll sleep well tonight because I’ve got another double training session tomorrow. Always look forward to that!
Have a great night!
