As I walked around my house this morning getting the kids situated I keep thinking about how I wanted my day to go, how was the first day of my fitness challenge going to go? I could not get off my mind how much I was not looking forward to eating breakfast. Most days I forget to eat due to getting everything done that I need to get done with the kids and cleaning up the house a little and so on and so forth. But knowing that my challenge was starting today I knew that I needed to eat something and that something could not be French toast “like I so wanted to eat” or the bacon that was sitting right in front of my eyes as I opened up the fridge. I decided to go with a cup of oatmeal to get my day going. As I sat on the counter forcing down something I did not want to eat. I was proud of myself and thought how bad can this day be. I can do this right?
My day went on and I do have to say I did forget to eat my mid-morning snack. Not good considering when you eat healthily you actually have to eat a lot more than when you do not. 6 meals a day was and is my plan. As for lunch, I had chicken and broccoli. And my mid-day snack was a lot of veggies which I do not have a problem eating. (My husband calls me a rabbit because I love my veggies)
Now for dinner, I made ribs (not the healthiest choice) but I had to get them out of my freezer and not let them go to waste.
As I’m sitting here shaking from my workout I am feeling pretty good about my day one. Dinner could have been better but hey, ok there is no excuse when it comes to this right? If I’m going to do this I have to do it right? I did not want to go to the gym but got up off my butt and when and now that I am home I may be shaking but I am loving that I went.
