For those of you doing the Love Your Body Challenge… this post will be interesting. For those of you who aren’t… it’s still interesting ;)
I will break down everything I ate and how my day went yesterday with points and all that jazz so you can completely understand what I’m looking for! I do not expect you to show pictures of the food you eat (unless you want to!). Also, you can just write your answer next to the number without rewriting the guidelines each time. For example:
1.) Yes, jump rope 30 minutes
2.) No, i ate pizza at 7pm
3.) Yes, 9 cups of water
4.) Yes, 6 servings of veggies and fruit. 1 banana, 2 cups spinach, 1/2 cup strawberries, 10 carrots, 1/2 cup broccoli
5.) Yes, 5 meals
Total= 4 points for the day
Get it? I am going to go a little more in depth from time to time on the blog though. Here is my day yesterday.
2/14/13 Day 1
1.) Move your body for at least 30 minutes 5 days per week
Check. 2.25 mile run, double unders, pull ups, HSPU
2.) Past 3pm, ONLY ingest protein, fat, fruit and vegetables (no carbs or unwanted sugars)
Snack after 3pm… carrots with raisins, almond butter and cinnamon mixed up into an almost empty nut butter jar. Looks nasty but so so good!
Dinner… Chinese Food on Love Day! I made sure to order all protein and vegetables. It tasted amazing. 1/2 cup Duck and veggies, 1/2 cup beef/shrimp and veggies, 1/2 cup chicken and corn sweet chowder soup.
3.) Drink 8 cups of water daily
Check! I drank exactly 8 cups
4.) Eat 5 servings of vegetables and fruit per day (dried fruit does not count).
Check! Berries= 1 serving, 1 banana= 1 serving, carrots= 1 serving, chinese veggies= 2 servings, spinach= 1 serving
5.) Eat 4-7 small meals per day
Check! 6 small meals
Early Breakfast (smoothie), very small snack (banana), early lunch (ham, asparagus, sweet potato), very small snack (3 dark choc hershey kisses at 2pm!), snack (carrots and raisins), dinner (chinese)
Total for the day= 5 points!
If you already started to keep track and your book looks different than this set up, but still answers the questions in a way I will understand and feel you give me enough information… that is fine.
Today I have been doing well so far:
Breakfast- banana with nut butter and granola
Snack- pistachio, strawberry and coconut protein baw (I made these for my parents) Of course I had to sneak one!
Lunch- large veggie salad with sweet potato chips on the side
Water intake- 4.5 cups
Exercise- nothing yet, maybe a half hour walk outside
Meals eaten thus far- 3
Fruits/veggie servings thus far: 3
I hope this is helping you all. I know it may seem like a little bit of work, but this blog post only took me 20 minutes to put together. I am sure you can figure out your whole day in 5-10 minutes tops. DO IT and don’t give up! Your health should mean everything to you. If you give me an excuse, your just not willing to work hard enough!!! Tough love my dears.
Have a great weekend… stay strong!
