…Enter the wonders of intuitive eating

Today is a perfect example of how intuitive eating is slowly working to my advantage.  I think that one day I will have to diet again, assuming I still want to compete, but while I am learning to have a healthy relationship with food, that whole idea of dieting is kind of being thrown out…

31 days of clean foods: day 9

Today I woke up 5am, I had a shake with one scoop of metabolic nutrition protizyme, 1 organic banana, and about 1/2 cup muscleegg before heading to the gym for my workout. I got to the gym for the Beach body burn groupX class at 6am. The class didn’t really get started until around 6:10…

31 Days of Clean Foods: Day 8

“It’s Monday… It’s day 8, and it’s back to work. I feel like I haven’t gotten any break. I’m tired, and really not working off all cylinders at all. I must be strong, but I’m pretty sure it’s days like today – nothing totally crazy, just tired and overworked, without a chance to really catch…

31 Days of Clean Foods: Day 7

Day 7 was pretty uneventful. I woke up at 7:30, had breakfast at 8:45am which consisted of 1 cup oatmeal, 1/2 cup mixture of 1 scoop Metabolic Nutrition Protizyme Peanut butter cookie protein and 1 cup of muscleegg mixed, and then I headed to the gym. I was teaching Body Pump at 10am and I…

31 Days of Clean foods Day 5 & 6

Picture this: it’s Friday morning, for over a year now you have woken up every Friday morning at 7am and gone to the gym by 9am for Body Pump followed by Spin (obviously this has a few exceptions but it’s pretty much been this way). But this Friday was different. After two days off from…

31 Days of Clean foods: Day 4

Always learning. I woke up at 5, made it to the gym by 6 (barely). I decided to just get a shake at the gym because I didn’t have time to make breakfast because um, well, I was surfing instagram and Pinterest in bed until I realized it was 5:40 and I had to get…

31 days of clean foods: Day 3

So today I was off from work (sort of, more on that later) but I still got up at 5am for fasted cardio by 6am. I’m still taking too long to get out of the house but it’s definitely a work in progress and if I have to get up earlier, I will just have…

31 Days of Clean Foods: Day 2

Day 2 started like every Tuesday starts: up at 5am, at the gym by 6am for Cardio kickboxing and some light weight work/bands and kettle bells. By about 45 minutes in my stomach started yelling at me so I was glad I planned ahead with one scoop of Metabolic Nutrition’s peanut butter cookie protein with…

31 Days of Clean Foods: Day 1

Today is my first day back to work after 5 days off, the first day of December, and the first day of my self proposed 31 days (I changed it to 31 days to be the full month of December) of clean foods. Here’s my criteria for what constitutes as “clean” : All produce All…
