Hello everyone. This past week was crazy busy for me and the same goes for this one. I wanted to post information about recipes I like but that will have to wait until next time. Instead, I’d like to give an update on my Advocare 24-Day Challenge. Last Friday was day one and it has been going great so far. It was a slightly rocky start with my cold and schedule but that hasn’t stopped me from working out and eating healthy. It is possible and if I can do it then so can you. 🙂
The main focus of this challenge is to eat healthy and creating balance in your diet. “It’s easier to cut calories than to burn them off”, according to Shawn M. Talbott, PhD, nutritional biochemist and former director of the University of Utah Nutrition Clinic, so it’s very important to choose your food wisely.
Here are some examples of what to eat & what to limit or avoid:
- Chicken Breast
- Lean Fish
Snacks/Other – Healthy Fats in Moderation
- Nut Butter
- Plain Yogurt
- Low-Fat Cheese
- Milk (skim or reduced fat)
Limit or Avoid
- Soda (even diet)
- Processed Food
- Creamy Sauces
Each day I start out with eggs (scrambled or sunny side up), potatoes (sometimes with broccoli and green peppers mixed in), and some sort of fruit. I would really love to try some new breakfast recipes though and possibly prepare ahead of time! If anyone has suggestions I would greatly appreciate hearing about them! Check out my Instagram video of my Sunday cooking.
Happy Saturday everyone!! It's day 2 of my 24 Day Challenge and I'm so excited. Today I started off with Spark and a catalyst then made eggs & potatoes! I paired it with a banana as well. It's off to Woodmans to get some goodies afterwards then I'm hitting the gym!! Later, I'll have to find something good off a menu because my dad is driving two hours to take me out to supper. What a great day ❤️I'm so blessed. Now only if my cold would go away!
For lunch and supper I eat either eat chicken or salmon with veggies and another side. Here is my supper from last Sunday – salmon with zucchini and potatoes. It was delicious.
For working out I usually do some cardio then work on my arms or legs. This is where I’m definitely in search of some advice! I have a bunch of workouts from Pinterest to go through to figure out a concrete workout plan. That is how I will be spending my weekend.
