Chest Day + Same Ol’ Same Ol’

Howdy there! How are you doing today? I swear I’m not going to post my meals *every single day* but I’m just trying to give people a view of what I’m eating right now. It’s pretty similar on most days, but I’m planning on expanding my repertoire of recipes this week, so stay tuned for reviews!

Breakfast

I started my day off with a banana and white chocolate PB. Coffee to drink, as usual!

I also had two scrambled eggs, three pieces of turkey bacon, and a slice of Ezekiel bread with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and triple berry jam a bit later.

After breakfast, I went to the gym and did the stair master for a while as well as worked on my quads and butt. The stair master SUCKS, y’all. I hate it with a passion. It’s boring but I did bring music. I did it low and slow and did two steps at once to work my butt.

Lunch

I had a portion of rotisserie chicken for lunch along with roasted broccoli, carrots, and Brussels sprouts topped with Whataburger Creamy Pepper Sauce and a dab of hummus. Easy peasy.

After I ate lunch, my stomach blew up like a damn balloon, and I had to lay down for a minute … I took some anti-gas antacids and they did help, thank goodness.

Snack

Around 2:30, I decided to try a kombucha to soothe my tummy a bit.

Eventually I also snacked on an opal apple with Tajin Seasoning.

I also had some carrots and tomatoes with jalapeno ranch dressing … I was snacky today! 🙂

Workout

I began to feel utterly defeated in the mood department, so we ended up going to the gym for chest day around 3 and stayed nearly an hour.  My mood was *so much better* after working out! Chest day is *hard* for me, but that’s one reason why I like it – it forces me to push myself and use those muscles that are so damn weak!After our workout, we ran a few errands, and I got me a diet Sprite to soothe my tummy (which was a little upset still).

Dinner

I had leftover chicken and spaghetti squash with spaghetti sauce for dinner along with a piece of Ezekiel bread, some I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter, and roasted asparagus drizzled with jalapeno ranch dressing (the asparagus was my favorite component).

Yes, this is about what I usually eat in a day – I don’t count calories, so I’m not sure how much I’m consuming, but I’m consuming what *feels* right to me physically, a very drastic change in my life from ED activities such as obsessive calorie counting and restricting.

The important thing is that I’m looking and feeling SO MUCH BETTER than I ever have. If you’re fighting an eating disorder and/or mental issues, keep up the good fight! You CAN win the war!

Now I’m off to take a hot bath, watch Travel Channel, search out new recipes, and download some new workout music. 🙂

Hope you had a great day!
