I had a conversation today with a girl at work. It’s not a secret that I’ve been trying to eat better and get myself in shape.. Just because.
I have been making myself lunches everyday for so long I cannot now fathom how I used to eat everything that I did. I would spend a lot of money every lunch time and through out the day on everything and nothing.. A lot of empty calories and a lot of fats.. Crisps, sandwiches, sweets, fruit juices, fizzy juices.. Just a combination of a lot of things. I didn’t eat terribly and those things I just mentioned, I didn’t eat everyday but I did have them frequently.
Now, I do a weekly shop every weekend to ensure that I get everything I need in order to cook well for myself. I have a food plan for the month which makes it easier for me to shop because I already know what I am making for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack times. It is important that I buy everything I need because if I don’t I may be tempted to get something unhealthy (when I say unhealthy I’m talking about a 10g packet of mini haribo!) and I know for me that is when the “bad” eating will begin. It’s okay every once in a while but not all the time and I’ve found that when I have a small amount of something that’s good enough for me.
I even leave my purse at home so I am not tempted to purchase things just because. I have become very disciplined and it’s very natural now that I’ve been doing it all for so long.

I spent almost 2 hours working out today. I wasn’t feeling well so I took it slower than usual to make sure I didn’t cause myself any injury.
For my post-workout meal I had a salad comprising of avocado, red onion, eggs and cherry tomatoes. I seasoned the salad with salt, pepper and some lime juice. I also baked a chicken breast, sliced it and added that too..
Eating clean doesn’t have to mean your food won’t taste nice.. It just means you probably need to be a little more inventive..
Here is my salad..

All the pretty colours.. 😛
