Persistence

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Persistence is the key to success. I'm doing my very best to get back on track (yet again). Now that the weather is nicer, I can spend more of my days going out for a job on my Kung Fu off days. My struggle has never really been with the fitness aspect though; it has always been with food.

I'm putting my foot down (yet again) and working hard to revamp my diet and get back to eating better. I know what healthy eating is: eating less processed foods and more vegetables, eating only when hungry and not when bored/emotional, and drinking more water. I know these things. It really isn't a difficult concept! I just need to force myself to start doing it.

This week I'm back on track. Yesterday I made myself two eggs and some turkey bacon before work because I got up really early. For lunch I went to the cafeteria and made myself a salad, but it was really boring and unappetizing. Dinner was homemade "taco bowls" which consisted of turkey taco meat, cheese, lettuce and a homemade cilantro/lime sour cream. Overall it was a very successful day. I may have eaten a bit too much of the taco bowl portion, but the salad wasn't enough yesterday.

Today, I skipped breakfast (because I was busy and wasn't hungry) but I did have coffee with some cream in it. For lunch, I made a salad from home to bring with me. It's a spinach, cucumber, strawberry salad topped with crumbled goat cheese and toasted almond slices. I didn't have time to make a vinaigrette, but I used a bit of balsamic vinegar and that tastes pretty good on its own.



Dinner will likely be something quick from Panda express, but I already have it planned out. I'll have the vegetables as my side and the Kung Pao chicken and grilled chicken as my entree. Overall it's a healthier choice and gets me to class on time.

I feel good being back on track. I just hope that I can keep up with it.

    GREAT JOB GIRLIE!!!!!!!! And that salad looks delish!!! I make one very similar! Actually, last year, I remember putting some chickpeas on it as well for some lean protein.

    Just keep trying hard to make small changes here and there and you'll get there eventually! It's never really OVER.... we just gotta keep changing our lifestyles so they eventually are better for us in the long run.

    You can do it!
