Eating clean pays off.
I hate when doing what I know I should… actually works. So annoying.
I made a big commitment to being super clean about a month ago. As in, I’ve had one cheat day in 17 days. That post I wrote about macros and the free calculator? That’s actually what I do. And it’s what I used to do before my little “I got married, moved to California, celebrated it all, and tore two ACLs” phase.
Is it a phase if it’s been almost 3 years?
Anyway, in 3-ish weeks I’m down 8 pounds and 3 % body fat. I’m also UP half a percent in muscle mass. So here are my words of wisdom for the day: Eating clean works. Consistent workout work. Common sense works.
But you came here for for food. Check out my day of eats below, and be sure to link up to Jenn’s WIAW baby at the bottom!
As per usual, Vegas brought me coffee to bed. Then I made our morning cocktails. It’s become an addiction – even Vegas agrees! Don’t mind the murky looks of it… 😉
Here’s what goes in it:
This delicious superfood pudding is finally going to be posted Friday!!! I’m a little addicted.
After my leg day, I came home and scarfed down the first thing I could find. Leftover chicken meatballs and salad with zucchini hummus as dressing.
Soup. I have a ton of Butternut-Apple Soup to eat after remaking it for the blog. Here’s the original recipe, if you’re interested.
Even Vegas liked this healthy dinner!
There was a post-dinner snack of protein pudding. Just a mix of chocolate pea protein, cinnamon, and water. I’m typing this and watching This Is Us… so no pic. 😉
It’s still 85 degrees here… but I’m all over the fall food anyway.
Do you ever surprise yourself by doing what you already know works?
What’s the first thing you drink in the morning?
Bonus points if you say vodka.
