What I Eat in a Day ๐Ÿฅž๐Ÿฅ—๐Ÿ—


Lately Iโ€™m taking action to slim down and get to MY personal happy weight/shape ๐Ÿ˜

so Iโ€™ve been eating less than usual mostly by cutting out snacks, processed crap and lowering carbs.

My other trick is MINDFUL EATING ๐Ÿฝ

Before putting anything in my mouth ๐Ÿ‘„ I ask myself – WHY?

Am I hungry? Stressed? Emotional? Bored?

So I only eat when Iโ€™m hungry, which naturally eliminates snacking. If Iโ€™m hungry between meals, that could mean one or more of the following 3๏ธโƒฃ reasons:

โ™ฆ๏ธ I did not eat enough/balanced at previous meal (this often happens with breakfast)

โ™ฆ๏ธ Iโ€™ve been working out more/expending more energy in other ways (running around like a crazy chicken ๐Ÿ“)

โ™ฆ๏ธ Iโ€™m PMSing, and my fellow ladies would know how that goes. Our metabolism actually does speed up in the 2nd phase of the cycle, by 100-300 cals, its individual (not by 1000 cal – so your 2 slices of cake and a serving of chicken wings are not justified ๐Ÿ˜œ)

๐Ÿ’ Breakfast: pancakes and coffee (o later figured that wasnโ€™t enough, eggs and spinach with lo told do it better for me)

๐Ÿ’ Lunch: roasted chicken breast, white beans, spinach and green beans topped with olive oil, truffle salt and Dijon mustard (Iโ€™m addicted to Dijon ๐Ÿ˜ฑ)

๐Ÿ’ Dinner: seared salmon, baked sweet potato fries, arugula salad with cherry tomatoes, lemon juice and olive oil. I mightโ€™ve come back for more fries… and salad… ๐Ÿฅ— ๐Ÿ˜‰

With food I need variety, canโ€™t eat the same every day. I also listen to my body and donโ€™t deny it food. I learn from my experiences and correct mistakes as I go (like my breakfast – tomorrow eggs for sure ๐Ÿ˜…)
