Healthy Eating Triumph

Hey guys, I had to share a healthy eating triumph I had this weekend.

As you know I’ve been working on eating healthier. I have cut out all red meat from my diet and have been working on my sweet tooth addiction as well as eating more veggies. So last night my mom took me to Golden Corral, home of the delicious Beef Pot Roast and delicious chocolate fountain… those are my absolute favorite parts of this restaurant. Their pot roast is just sooo good and what chocolate lover doesn’t love a good chocolate fountain. But instead of letting my inner fat kid out and indulging until I popped, I opted for pan seared talipa, catfish, corn, rice, and pineapples.  I still probably ate to much, and they’re green veggies were either running on empty, or I couldn’t get to them because of the dozens of peoples surrounding the buffet. Still working on eating salads, I’m not a fan of lettuce and I’m still toying with the idea of spinach lol. But compared to what I normally eat, I’ve been doing pretty well, and I’m certainly proud.

I’m also still so in love with my ACV and honey drink. I certainly look forward to it everyday. Now if only I could get a hold of this sweet tooth issue lol. What kind of things do you eat when you have a craving for chocolate and other sweets, but don’t have any fruit handy?? Give me some yummy ideas.

ACV and Honey Drink Mix

In an attempt to improve my diet and health, I have been researching the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar for things other than just my hair. Here’s a good link that goes a little in depth about the topic. Anyways, I wanted to begin incorporating a few tablespoons a day into my diet but knew I wouldn’t want to drink it straight. At first I was adding 2tbs to my green smoothies in the morning, but there were two things wrong with that. One I wasn’t drinking smoothies every day, and 2 I wasn’t using organic ACV so I didn’t feel as if I would be reaping all the benefits. So yesterday I went out and bought Bragg’s ACV and this morning mixed 2tbs in a cup of hot water, with a squirt of lemon juice and half a tbs of honey. Usually I have a cup of tea or hot chocolate in the morning, but man oh man, I think I may have found a replacement! The taste took a little getting use to at first, but it’s actually surprisingly pleasant. I thought I was starving before I drank it, but now I’m actually not all that hungry. Anyways, if you haven’t tried ACV I would highly suggest it, since not only is it good for you but it actually tastes pretty well.

Oh my I’m doing a 5k!!! (more workout awesomeness)

So today I ended up going to the gym with my mom to walk around the track since it was still kind of gross and windy out. We walked and chit chatted and it was an overall really nice time. I’m glad I got off my butt and went 🙂  We ended up doing 2.02 miles in 36 minutes. Not a miraculous time but we set a goal of walking 2 miles in 40 mins, so we beat our goal!! Yay!! Small achievements help getting back in shape much more enjoyable!!! While we were walking we talked about 5ks. Now my mom did her very first one on Jan 1 and I was so proud of her and I promised next time I would do it with her. As we were leaving, I spotted some fliers, saw one for a 5k this month and grabbed it. Here it is on my awesomely empty bulletin/future inspiration board lol  along with the training guide they had next to it, which is very much so like the “Couch to 5k” program.

As you can see, that is next weekend. But I’m not to worried because I am use to running, especially after BMT, even though I haven’t gotten to the point of enjoying it yet lol. But we are very excited. We also made a workout plan for the next week or so until that day. It’s not much but better than nothing. We will be taking Zumba on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturdays. And walking anywhere from 2.5-3.5 miles on the days in between with Sunday being a rest day. I think it will be a good jump start to getting into a more regular routine of working out. I am a very firm believer in setting small, attainable goals for myself rather than large far away goals because it helps to push me forward a lot harder every time I meet a goal.

In the meantime, since I am out of work, I am thinking about working out in the morning as well, since just walking/jogging isn’t very intense. Honey will be home tomorrow for Spring Break so I am hoping he will go to the gym with me and help me with a workout plan, to include weights and machines until I get the hang of what I am doing.

Up next for tomorrow, I may hit the gym in the morning, just for some elliptical, treadmill, sauna stuff since I have to go on base anyways or I may pop in my Kim K dvd and do that.

Since I am getting more motivated with my heath and fitness, I will start blogging more about it. It helps me feel a smidgen more accountable about things lol

SN- my dinner tonight consisted of grilled salmon, sauteed spinach, and brown rice. yummmmm 🙂
