It has been an incredibly long time since I posted on this blog. I have been so busy with school (I graduate in less than one month!) and over the summer I worked and completed a practicum with Texas A&M Agrilife Extension. While I was not writing on this blog I was writing on their blog. Here are some of my posts:
I’ve been wanting to start writing on my blog (this blog) again and I was inspired to make my first post back a “What I eat Wednesday” post, inspired by ConstancelyEating.
I love sharing my meals and i’m excited to be able to share them here. Today wasn’t a typical day for me since I had the day off from school and even though I had a day of healthy meals and snacks planned out I ended up switching some of those meals/snacks to go out to eat at night for my boyfriends dad’s birthday. Even though I didn’t end up eating what I thought I was going to I want to share it anyways, because life doesn’t always go according to plan.
It was National RD Day yesterday and I decided to photograph all my meals throughout the day to share of the reasons I want to become a Registered Dietitian. That reason is because I want to show people that eating healthy doesn’t have to suck.
Most people think that in order to loose weight they have to eat clean, cut carbs, or cut fats. Technically none of that matters. What does matter is that to loose weight you are eating in a calorie deficit. Which means your taking in less calories then your body burns in a day. What you fill your calories with technically doesn’t matter, but I can pretty much guarantee that if you eat like shit your going to feel like shit.
I love to fuel my body with healthy whole foods, such as lean chicken and turkey, eggs, potatoes and vegetables along with a ton of other food items. For me I have to have variety in my diet or else i’ll get bored and that leads to binge eating.
I have had tons of ups and downs since I started becoming healthier a few years ago and I finally found what works for me and that’s eating a flexible diet. The majority of my food is “clean” whole foods with treats thrown in when I want them.
So I wanted to share a little detail about what I ate this day.
I’m super excited to be doing the Katy Hearn winter challenge starting next Monday, January 19,2016. Last semester I did my first Katy Hearn challenge and loved it! I have been following Katy since I started lifting weights and have been constantly motivated by her. If your into fitness and need some motivation you should check her out her Instagram is @katyhearnfit. She’s a personal trainer that has transformed her body into the ‘goal body’ for thousands of girls.
