I woke up this morning thinking about how I am going to commit to 2 weeks of clean eating and post the goal on my blog. Then I started thinking. I hate saying I am going to do something and not following through. So then I thought, ok 1 week. Well, the truth is, I don't know how long I could actually eat clean without modification. I never tried it. The only reason I want to do it without modification is to get a kick start to looking and feeling better to motivate me to keep it up better. Well, my new goal is 1 day. Thats it. 1 day. And if I decide to not do it tomorrow, no judgement, my goal was only one day.
I decided to occasionally post a few words that best describe how I look and feel in the beginning of a particular day. Here goes:
Look: bloated, breakout on face, pale, blotchy
Feel: constipated (sorry if TMI), itchy for some reason, tired, lazy
Now you know why I wanna do this, haha.
Well here goes...
BF: glass of water, plain oatmeal (100), with about 4 fresh strawberries (25) and cinnamon, 1/3 glass of skim milk (30), Snack: baby carrots (25)-this was complete torture, Lunch: 2 hardboiled eggs plus 1 egg white (180), avocado and black bean salsa I made last night (200?), few strawberries (30), Snack: 1 banana (110) and a handfull of almonds (180), Snack 2: a spoonful of almond butter (80) and a few grapes (40), Dinner: rice pasta (made from one ingredient, brown rice) (?), lentil tomato sauce from "The Eat Clean Cookbook" (?), salad (30). I was so full from the lentil sauce that I didn't even want dessert, which would have been plain Greek yogurt with fruit.
Workout: 20 min of elliptical, few lunges and shoulder presses, 1.4 mile walk/jog later in the day.
