Let’s see if I can manage to type this post without screaming out in pain!! Okay, it’s not that bad but my shoulders are on fire from a killer workout yesterday. A good kind of pain though. I love that feeling of being sore after a good workout, especially when it doesn’t happen as often anymore!!
It is a good thing that we are incorporating clean eating as a lifestyle rather than a diet. Last night, my daughter had her end of the season basketball party at CiCi’s pizza. If you have ever been you know that there are very limited healthy eating option. For what I had to choose from, I am quite happy with the choices I made. And you know what, it felt SO GOOD to walk out of there knowing that although I wasn’t able to eat completely clean, I didn’t have to feel guilty about it. If I had put myself on a “diet” I would still be beating myself up!!
Alrighty, now it is time to see just what I ate yesterday.
What I Ate Wednesday
Meal 1: Again, this is not necessarily “clean” but it only has 5 ingredients so I am more than okay with it. I hate to waste food and this cereal needed to be finished up so I had a cup (one serving) along with a sliced banana and almond milk. Of course, there was also a delicious cop of coffee but I didn’t snap a picture.
Meal 2: Leftovers!! Blue cheese stuffed buffalo turkey meatballs, quinoa with sun dried tomatoes and asparagus added in. So, So Good!!! Franks hot sauce is definitely a staple in our house. I put that sh*t on everything!!!
Meal 3: Rice cake with Adam’s natural peanut butter and dark chocolate chips. This is a new to me peanut butter but it is quickly becoming a fave!!! I hope my local store continues to carry it.
Meal 4: Cinnamon Swirl Protein Bread. I had this shortly before heading to CiCi’s so that I would be less likely to indulge in pizza. It worked!! If you haven’t made this bread, I highly recommend that you make it like NOW!!!
Meal 5: Like I said before, CiCi’s has pretty limited healthy options(if any) but I did the best with what I had. I started out with a salad, topped with light Italian dressing and a bowl of chicken noodle soup. The chicken was actually fake little cubes of something so I picked around that and ate the broth, noodles and veggies. I did help myself to one piece of pizza but hey, it has spinach on it so it couldn’t be all bad, right? Right?!
Do you have a favorite body part to work? Mine is usually legs but since tank top weather is fast approaching, I want to make sure my arms and shoulders are getting the attention they deserve.
Spicy food. Like or dislike? I love spicy foods!!
What is your favorite brand of peanut butter? Jif Natural is really good but Adam’s has quickly become my fave!!
