It has been a week since I started my DietBet. Things have been going REALLY well! I have been working out lots and eating well…
I wanted to take some time to share what has been working for me.
First is the gym that I go to. I go to Xperience Fitness. It is SUPER cheap, $20 a month, and offers tons of amazing workout classes. So far I have gone to RPM (a spin class), Road Rage (a spin class), bodyflow and bodypump. Tonight I am going to bodycombat and zumba!!
Second is the My Fitness Pal app.
I have been using this app to help keep track of what I eat and my workouts. I’m not really watching calorie count but it is super helpful to plug stuff in so you only eat one serving instead of multiple servings. It is also an eye opener to see how much you really consume in one day. They also promote only losing 1-2 lbs a week so they suggest a calorie intake to accomplish that goal.
Next and most important is HEALTHIER FOOD.
Kind of dark but I have a fridge full of yummy stuff. Lots of salads!
And Almond Milk (plain and chocolate flavor)
The chocolate kind is so good and tastes just as good as normal chocolate milk but with less guilt 🙂 I use the plain almond milk when I make my protein drinks after working out.
I also love these veggie straws!!! They are so good! They do a great job satisfying my craving for chips, but they are much healthier than chips. And have you read the ingredient list? I recognize everything on the ingredient list! If you haven’t tried them I highly recommend them.
I won Katie’s giveaway for some wholly guacamole! I really love this stuff! My favorite so far is the 100 cups. I have tried them in plain and spicy. Both are excellent and I don’t eat it with chips I eat it with carrots. You guys may not know this but I LOVE carrots. I can eat them plain or with dip. As I try more of the yummy wholly products I will let you know what I think. Interesting Fact: You can freeze it!
I have also been loving eggs lately…. Today for lunch I had a delicious egg bowl.
I love eggs… this one has broccoli, jarred roasted red pepper, onion, mushroom, turkey and a few dashes of buffalo sauce. I used egg substitute to help cut back on the cholesterol and fat. (High cholesterol runs in my family)
These sandwiches are my quick fix breakfast savior. I tend to miss breakfast a LOT because I’m not motivated right when I wake up to make breakfast. So these sandwiches are so easy and so good! They only take a minute in the microwave…. perfect when you’re on the go.
Lastly is WATER!!
I carry this MASSIVE 30 oz water bottle around with me everywhere! I fill it up at least 2-3 times per day. It is extremely important to keep yourself hydrated.
This is only a few of the things that I have found super helpful in the past week…
What are some of your healthy habits?
Have you tried veggie straws yet?
