I had a protein-packed salad (no dressing) for dinner:
5oz chicken breast, 2 hard boiled eggs (I was feeling especially hungry so I indulged), grape tomatoes and cucumbers on baby spinach leaves. So yummy!
So far today I’ve eaten 1065 calories, after dinner. It’s a little lower than it would be, because I wasn’t feeling week at lunch (I think due to some antibiotics and steroids I just started) and so I opted for most of an apple and a little peanut butter for lunch instead of my chicken and veg and I skipped my after protein shake snack altogether.
I should still be eating another light snack around 7pm, so I’m thinking maybe a serving of almonds, which is about 160 cals. So still a really good day.
Also- I took a look at my nutrition info for the day, and I’m quite pleased with myself:
Carbs are totally in line, and what’s even better is that all the carbs I’m eating are from veg and fruit, so your body processed those differently than carbs from bread, pasta, etc. So my trainer tells me, anyway! Also, the fat looks a little high, but a lot of that is coming from “good” fat from the nuts I’m eating. So all in all I’m pretty darn happy.
I’m still feeling really good about eating clean. I want to keep improving and I’m really getting into it more and more. It doesn’t feel forced and I’m fully satisfied throughout the day. I ask actually eat, if I do get hungry. So I’m learning to listen to my body. It’s pretty cool.
I just feel so much better throughout the day as well. I feel like I even have a little more energy and am less sluggish. Missed my workout yesterday because my asthma is flaring up quite badly (hence starting the antibiotics and steroids) but I plan to get back to the gym just as soon as my lungs will allow! I’m actually annoyed I’m not able to go to the gym right now, because for a change I actually want to go! I also am worried about losing momentum. Definitely don’t want to stay away for too long. Just have to be careful.
So that’s my day in a nutshell. Week 3 of clean eating has officially begun! I feel like I’ve *finally* found my groove!
