Follow the Leader

Thursday, June 13, 2013

This is NOT a good idea, folks. We know this now, right? If you don't, please check out the rest of my blog. We can eat all we want! We can still lose weight (if we need to) and get fit and healthy. It's possible, even if we're eating more than the dreaded 1300 calories we've allotted for today. Get some fruit! And lots of it! Eat some baked potatoes or rice pasta. It's delicious, and carbs are good for you. Don't get stuck in those cycles of dieting to lose weight only to gain it all (and then some) back. We can break free from limits and guilt. Follow me. I'll lead the way. 

  • 6 banana smoothie with water, ice, cinnamon, and chia seeds = 675 calories
  • 4 cups red seedless grapes = 250 calories
  • Brown rice pasta with homemade marinara = 500 calories
  • 2 bananas = 200 calories
  • 1 whole honeydew melon = 400 calories
Calories: 2025
Colors: Yellow, brown, black, red, green

Exercise: Light stretching.
Sunshine: 15 minutes
Sleep: 7.5 hours

Someone thought I was sunburned today. I'm not red, but I do look tan for me! And someone else said that this food seems like it's doing really good things for my skin. I was shocked because I feel like my skin is still pissed off about the cheese. But I guess from a slight distance it does look pretty good. That's exciting!

I've been running these past two days. I guess I can hardly call it running, but for me, it's really thrilling. It appears that 20 pounds makes a lot of difference when it comes to running. My lungs can handle it better, and I'm not wondering if the minute is up every five seconds. Incredible! I'm looking forward to another session tomorrow! And I'll be signing up for a 5K very soon here. Goals, people. I'm telling you! They help and work.

Lastly.. I wore one of my new Real Fruit Jewelry necklaces. It started a lot of conversations at work! I think it's totally cute, and it really got people talking. People were shocked that it was a real slice of orange! Check out her shop. It's all really fantastic stuff.

Eat your fruits and veggies, kids.
(or wear them!)

You are soo right! And I LOVE how your blog always reminds me to do better. I ate some not so great food this weekend and was thinking on cutting back today, but told myself to just eat better instead. And I was happier with that thought. Why punish ourselves? Because that's the mindset I had. I fell off a little, and so I had to punish myself. But feeling happy, fulfilled, and satisfied on healthy foods was such a better mindset, and one I could stick with much easier for the long term. Plus, it helps to reach a place of balance and self love.

Oh! Is that what I see Freelee wear in her videos!? Does she make them!?

Thanks!! I'm glad you didn't beat yourself up over it! It's not something we should ever feel guilty about. I wish I practiced what I've been preaching more because I find myself doing that sometimes. But paying attention to what our body says is much more beneficial than listening to our minds when they don't know how it really is!

And no, she doesn't make them. I thought she did too. She gets them from the link I posted above. Real Fruit Jewelry is the company name. So cool! I have a banana and a strawberry too!

Post a Comment

Please leave me some comment love. I enjoy every single one of them and will get back to you shortly, especially if you leave your Twitter name. Love and hugs! <3
