Hey guys! So to follow up with my last blog about working out I am going to do my nutrition on a normal day. I found out that when your looking to lose weight, 20% is working out (not a lot at all), 20% is sleep and 60% (what!!) is what you eat. So eating is the most important step in trying to lose weight! I know, even I think "Oh I worked out today I can eat whatever I want"! Well not totally true. I believe you can eat what you want in moderation. I am not totally strict on my diet either. I don't want people to think I am perfect and that I eat all healthy foods! Completely not true. I love to have pizza and buffalo wings and such. But that happens probably once a month for me. I try to eat 80% healthy and 20% not as healthy. So here is what I eat on a "normal" day!
*Warning I am a total snacker. I don't eat a lot of big meals during the day. I just munch*
I always start my morning off with a coffee.
I used to ALWAYS use a creamer in my coffee. But the day that I looked at how many calories and fat is in creamer I quit. I started just doing Half & Half and Truvia sugar. I also added a little bit of caramel in my coffee too.
After I have my coffee I eat my yogurt and granola. Which you have all heard me talk about a million times.
For lunch I normally have some toast and jelly or string cheese and a English Muffin or a sandwich. I am a total girl of habit. I don't like to change what I eat if I know that it's working. So I do have a lot of the same things everyday. A lot of people don't like to have the same things day in and day out. So this might not work for you.
This is something that I actually change everyday. Sometimes we will go out, but most times we eat dinner at home. I like to have a protein and a veggie. I eat a lot of salads. I am IN love with them. I eat one a day at least! Last night this is what we had.
When we eat out I really only like to go to two places. Either Panera or Chipotle. I know a lot of you are thinking WHAT Chipotle? But if you ever look at their menu they have all grass fed meats and locally grown veggies, and the best cheeses! Panera is also one of my favorites because of all the fresh food!
I do also have a dessert most nights. Such as Organic ice cream or some brownies.
I hope you guys enjoyed this!!
