Hi everyone! Today is the day 1 of my journey to #BeTheGirl
I've just been a mom.. Just making sure my son is taken care of and looked after, forgetting "Hey, you should take care of yourself too!" If I went out shopping I would end up coming home with clothes and shoes for my son and nothing for myself.. Just coz nothing looks nice on me.. I don't like anything.. TIME TO CHANGE that! I wasn't gonna post anything on this forum but I decided I need some extra motivation just like you might need it too! I'm going to post every day what I've been eating and how it's going for me.. I've been using the Bodylab app to track my allowance of daily fat, carb intake and making sure I don't go over it.. The app is really helpful!
So I started the day with raw porridge oats(takes longer for the body to break them down, plus it's quicker,tastes like muesli) with some low fat milk and some mixed frozen berries that I left overnight in the fridge to defrost (quite handy) ..
Then I did some exercise (cycling for 30min mod speed) , did 20 squats, 60 sec plank, and few more exercises..
Then had my snack which was some leftover berries with fresh raw coconut meat.. Coconut should aid weight loss coz it's full of fibre and meant to keep you full longer.
Then I had lunch which was 3 turkey sausages ,roasted red bell pepper and steamed broccoli with peas.
Then for my snack I had an apple, and dinner I made grilled chicken breast ( I made few little cuts on the breast, dipped it in lemon juice and rubbed some black pepper , sweet paprika and cayenne pepper) with broccoli and peas (a lot of broccoli today lol )
Also I drank 2 cups of green tea and water in between to keep me fuller.
So the whole day I was feeling good.. Light and not hungry.. And I was suprised because I love my carbs, my pasta, my bread.. So today was quite hard.. But I want to reduce my carb intake and really focus on protein and vegetables/fruits..
But yeah when it gets to the evening it's the hardest.. You craving something nice.. Or wanting something.. I'm not hungry but guess need to get used to this light feeling.. I don't want to give up, I always get over excited then quit so I'm going to really really try this time! It's going to be a journey and it's going to be a good one!
So 2moro gonna do some little shopping.. Get some more oats, berries, coconut, lemons, Greek yoghurt (have you had Greek yoghurt mixed with some organic honey and cinnamon? Yum!), eggs, avocados, broccoli, asparagus, pitta breads, brown rice.. Hmm not sure what else..but I'm goin to try to plan next day meals so I don't fall off the track
I hope we all can stick together, inspire each other and success together! Much Love xxxx
P.s have you ever tried meditation? Trust me when I started I had no clue what am I even doing.. All you need is a quiet place where you can sit or lay and relax.. Light a candle maybe.. Close your eyes and clear your thoughts.. Focus on your breathing.. Listening to relaxin meditation music on YouTube helps.. Meditation really helps with focus and with positivity.. Maybe give it a go, get some alone time.. We all need it :)
