New week YAY.
Thank god, a new week is year. I really needed that week to be oooover and done with. A new week always feels like a new start for me. Of course, I’m lucky I don’t have a 9 to 5 job otherwise I would probably be dreading monday…
Anyway, sorry for the lack of post yesterday. It wasn’t because I was uber busy as you probably noticed I still read and commented on your blogs.. It’s just that I made a decision that I can have ONE day without recording my food and/or posting. I just didn’t feel like it and it’s good to have one day to myself. I also spent the day with a stupid toothache.. which caused a headache. Not very fun, is it? So I mainly just stayed home, watched tv shows and took some pills so the pain would stop. If it continues though I may go to the dentist for an emergency appointment. If it gets a little better, I’ll just call them to make an appointment for next week. We’ll just wait and see.
I actually took some pictures yesterday 😛 So here they are:
Delicious grilled fish. Ate that with broccoli and green beans (and olive oil).
And todays’ breakfast is a novelty…
OATMEAL. (It sure is hard trying to make a bowl of oatmeal look good. But I tried. 😛
Yep, it was the first time I made – and ate – oatmeal.
I used water, low fat milk, oats (duh), a banana, cinnamon and after it was done I added a tbsp of strawberry preserves. I think I got the quantities right but I also think I should make a little less next time. But this was yummy! I think it makes an awesome breakfast, especially for winter! Now I just gotta make different variations, which is kinda exciting ahah Can’t wait to try the millions of versions I’ve seen around.
Now, something I’ve wanted to talk about here…
I think I’m gonna make some new adjustments in my eating habits. You see, I’ve been eating to lose weight. And while I still wanna lose a little bit more weight, not A LOT but 8 or 9 pounds, I also want to eat to fuel my workouts, and allow me to build new muscle, which I haven’t been doing. I avoid high calorie foods like the plague. Not even kidding. Nut butters freak me out, so do “real” nuts, and fatty foods. Those are a few examples. But truth is, I need fat. Healthy fat, in moderation of course. But I do need it and I’ve been avoiding it like my life depends on it. Which I know is wrong.
But this weekend, while I was hanging around at home kinda drugged from my painkillers (ahah) I started thinking about it, and to me, it makes total sense that this is the next step I must take on my journey to be a healthier me.
I’ll admit I’m a little afraid these foods will make me gain weight.. but I really need to find that balance in my life. And I think this is the right time!
Do you have any advice?
I leave you with the Picture of the Day! Today I have a self portrait to show you.
It’s time to get ready, I have a session with Mr. PT!
Have a great monday. 🙂
