As most of you know I am working on finding my balance with healthy eating, some days I succeed and others I fail. Some days I am 100% on and others I’m just not. I will tell you I definitely relax more on the weekends when it comes to my eating. Since we are off our routine it makes it more difficult for me and it’s just not worth the battle. I am ok with that it is kind of nice knowing I don’t have to think about every morsel that goes into my mouth 7 days a week. I still eat clean on the weekends I am just not as strict. Clean eating to me is not a fad it’s my lifestyle I am just trying to figure out how not to become obsessed with it.
A typical day for me consists of 80% clean and 10% not so much.
After finishing Chisel Balance, I got dressed then ate some pumpkin protein pancakes (1/3 cup oats, 1/4 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp, pure vanilla extract, 2 egg whites, 1 tablespoon ground flax seed, 2 tablespoons pure pumpkin, 1/2 cup cottage cheese – put everything in a blender, I use the nutri bullet, and mix it al up. Then cook on medium low; slow and steady is the key.). Easy and delicious.
Chisel Balance is my least favorite workout of Hamme and Chisel, simply because it really challenges my balance, which challenges every part of me. Seriously, this workout kicks my booty every time. So, I love to hate it.
Once we got home from gymnastics and grocery shopping I was starving so I cooked up some ground beef, added taco seasoning and made a salad (this has become a staple in my diet lately and it’s so healthy). Yum!! I’m sorry I was so hungry I forgot to take a picture.
A little later I was ready for something sweet and I realized haven’t had my paleo chocolate cake in awhile so I quickly made one up and topped it with a little ice cream. One thing I have learned it that by treating myself mid day I don’t crave anything else later on. I don’t do this everyday, but maybe I should.
That chocolate cake and ice cream seriously sustained me for a long time. I didn’t feel the need to eat again until after getting Sophia off the bus and since it was a cold day and I am fighting this cold, tomato soup sounded perfect. I quickly whipped up my favorite and oh so easy homemade tomato soup (recipe coming ASAP) and it surely hit the spot.
A little later I made my favorite healthy beef nachos with homemade chips, taco meat, and a little bit of cheese.
I ended the night with a banana and a teaspoon of almond butter.
