Super cool news and diet rage

on March 25, 2012

Hello!  I don’t know about you, but it didn’t feel like Sunday to me.  I can’t believe that it is already time to go back to work tomorrow.  I felt like I was just there!  🙂

I slept so well last night.  That seems to be happening a lot lately……I am so not complaining.

So how has your Sunday been?  Restful?  Spend time with your family?  Whatever you did, I hope you had a great day!

 

 

Breakfast:

 

English muffin with turkey bacon and an egg/orange

 

 

Lunch:

Raspberry/Banana Smoothie

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup of frozen raspberries
  • 1 tbsp flax
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 scoop of whey protein powder
  • 1 scoop of nut butter/coconut butter
  • 3/4 cup of almond milk
  • 1/4 cup of coconut milk

 

 

Snack:

We had a meeting at church this afternoon, but I had some roasted pecans and string cheese to snack on.  Yum!

 

 

Workout:

After church this morning, I met my friend Angey at her house and we worked out.  We were going to go walking, but I took over my Amy Dixon DVD to see if she wanted to give it a try.  We did and it did not disappoint.

 

 

Diet Rage:

I was looking around for some topics that I could post about and I came across the term “diet rage.”   Let’s talk about this shall we?

Do you ever have feelings of being unhappy with your current healthy lifestyle?  Some things that you know you need to change or things that you may be getting frustrated with?

Believe me, I know that feeling.  The next time that you get aggravated at yourself for not sticking to your diet or healthy living program, try these simple motivating tips so it won’t develop into “diet rage.”

  1. Cut yourself some slack.  Think about the things that are in your life that make you happy.  I love my family.  I know that no matter what I look like they are going to love me.  Think about why you started making better food and exercise decisions in the first place.
  2. Time.  Healthy decisions in your life take time to master and even then, it’s a daily decision to eat healthy.  It takes time to meet goals.
  3. Relax.  Just go with the flow.  If you knew me, you would know that this is very difficult for me.  I am very task oriented and when things get off track I have a tendency to freak out.  🙂  Relaxing and just going with the flow is something that I still work on.  It is ok to stop and smell the roses.
  4. Don’t crash diet.  Crash dieting is so detrimental to your body.  Crash dieting can also lead to binge eating and eventually weight gain.  Make sure you do it the smart and slow way.

Disclaimer:  Don’t forget to search out the best plan for you.  I am not a personal trainer, or a nutritionist, these are just my own thoughts. 

Cool News!!

I got an e-mail the other day asking if I wanted to be apart of a special team and some special ladies!  Fit Approach is a community of like-minded people who encourage others to live healthy lives, be apart of the healthy side of their own communities, and do it all while wearing pink.

I can’t wait to get started on this new journey!  Be on the look out for some super cool opportunities!  🙂

I hope you have a great night!
