Sparking the Fire - Day 10
Specific Plan? Nope, just food
Meal Prep? I definitely try to. Last week I made my breakfasts and lunches for the week and that was amazing. Waking up in the morning and not having to throw together food for the day is great. It also helps ensure that I’m eating a proper lunch rather than a bunch of random things that feel more like snacking.
Food Struggles? Not anymore. It’s taken a while to stop associating food with guilt. But, I no longer have those issues. I know food = fuel and I feel way better for it.
How often do I eat? Three meals a day, with some snacks. Kind of depends on the day if I snack or not, and what I had for breakfast. But, snacks will usually be broccoli with hummus or a mandarin orange.
Eating out? This is an ongoing cycle in my house. My husband is active duty military and has periodic physical fitness testing. In the months prior to a test, it’s all health food and exercise. But, as soon as the test is over, so is the motivation to eat healthy. Like I would like to do all year long. At least the restaurants we eat at are pretty healthy compared to the chains.
Tracking? I used to, but tracking leads me to pretty obsessive behavior. Every once and a while I’ll log my food on myfitnesspal to see where I am. But, I find I no longer need it to know. I have the knowledge to fuel myself with delicious food and know when I’m hungry. And that’s all I really need right now.
A photo of one of the best salads I ever made. Makes me drool just looking at it. You can see all my food in my food tag http://healthyhattie.tumblr.com/tagged/food
