So…vacation is really over. I’m back to the office, cleaning the guinea pig cage, making healthy food choices and working out.
When I see a friend that I haven’t seen in a while, 90% of them say, “I see all of your Facebook pictures; you’re always at the gym” or “what is that Fit Camp thing that I see you posting about?” I’ve somehow fooled the world into perceiving me as this workout fiend. While that’s kind of cool, it’s actually pretty far from the truth.
I firmly, whole-heartedly, 100% believe that being healthy is 75% nutrition and 25% fitness. I love to work out but tend to go in cycles. For a month or two, I’m diehard committed to attending Fit Camp and the gym and yoga class. I don’t miss a workout. Then, after about 8 weeks or so, my body apparently needs to recoup. I feel myself being unusually exhausted, totally unmotivated, and downright sick at the thought of going to the gym. This is, however, when I eat the healthiest. When my body is tired and healing, I need to nourish it with good stuff!
All this being said, my gym workouts may fluctuate but I never miss Fit Camp. I LOVE it with a passion. Even though I’m more tired some days than others, I always commit myself to going and I feel great when I leave. So, even if I only go to Fit Camp (which is 2x per week), I’m still getting 2 crazy, ridiculously tough workouts. In my world, I’m perfectly as peace with that.
My food for the day:
An extremely rare treat- Kashi blueberry waffles!
about 1/2 tablespoon of Kerrygold butter
about 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
homemade iced coffee
Homemade sloppy joe meat:
3 oz of grass-fed ground beef
1 tablespoon Annie’s organic ketchup
1 tablespoon of French’s mustard
…I’m not posting a picture of lunch because although extremely tasty, the sloppy joe meat does not look appetizing.
Horizon organic mozzarella stick
2 oz. Boar’s Head ovengold turkey breast
a small handful of cashews
Sautéed Shrimp (with coconut oil and parsley)
about a tablespoon of hot Kerrygold butter and garlic
about 1 cup of green beans
shared about 1 1/2 cups of grapes with Mark for dessert
I did not eat nearly enough vegetables today…
…I’ll make up for it tomorrow!
Have a happy night! 😀
