Prescribed Eats, But Still Yummy & Fun!

FOOD

I alluded during my last post to participating in a healthy eating program.  I swear I looked at it for months before deciding to jump in and try it out – and did so mainly due to two friends (AD and C) and seeing how balanced they’ve been.  Truth be told – since going back to school my dinners of Wheat Thins, hummus, and wine have reached epic proportions, and I could use some resetting of what constitutes a balanced meal.  With less wine.

So, I’m doing a portion control program called 21 Day Fix that basically dumbs down eating into categories – and you just fill the little tubs and eat the number of tubs based on your weight.  I have to say – makes it easy- though I realize I often don’t eat enough – especially when I take out the daily wine!

Here’s some pics of the plenty of eats over the last week!  I did have some wine (and a beer) this weekend, though they were accounted for.  Also – my OneNote document of eating plans!

FITNESS

Oh wow – all the workouts, all the time!  Lot’s of workout videos, runs, and yoga.

Apologize for the sweaty selfies – it’s part of the group that motivates each other!

LIFE

Well, 9 days of travels, time spent (more than I would have liked) at the Chinese embassy in DC, a great party for a friend having a baby, and a night out with some great friends too.

M, me, and J!  Such a great night and so glad I know these guys.

Add to that the first roller coasters of the year (me and R!)

So – Ginny clearly decided I’m done studying for the night, so I’m totally OK with going to bed now…..’night all!

  1. Eats look good and that’s great about more balanced diet. My busy meals can be a little strange too and I’m experimenting with more grains and clean carbs for running lately. Great pics!
