#truth

My motivation of the week is to make healthy food choices & to eat right.  The goal is not to diet, but to really focus on eating things that are good for me.  For months, maybe years, I’ve been trying to enjoy a healthy eating lifestyle: nothing extreme, just a balancing game so that at the end of the week, I’ve had enough healthy foods to balance my unhealthy favs (#sugarlover #carblover).  I call this flexible dieting. Here is my meal plan for this week (hyperlinks for specific brands that I use):

Main meals: 

1) Chicken caesar salad with olive oil dressing

I just had this for lunch...yum!

2) Baked chicken, steamed cauliflower, and baked sweet potato

3) Broiled steak, brown rice, and kale

Breakfast: 

1) Oatmeal with walnuts & coconut milk

Snacks: 

1) Homemade lactation cookies (NEW recipe to come!)

2) Mrs. Thinster’s Cookie Thins in Chocolate Chip

3) Apples & grapes

4) Maybe some gluten free brownies if I have the energy later this week, lol

5) Chobani Greek Vanilla Yogurt

Drinks: 

1) Water

2) Coffee

3) Traditional Medicinal’s Lactation tea

4) Kale & apple fresh juice made at home

Here is how I work a meal plan: I set up 3-4 main meals, snacks, and drinks for the week.  Then I just choose all meals from that list. Following this philosophy (along with moderate exercising), I’ve lost 30 pounds twice in my life: first when I started this program to lose extra weight I packed on due to stress, and then a second time when I loss my baby weight.  I still have a handful of pounds to lose, but I’m not overly concerned. 🙂

From late November 2014 to late May 2015.
