Get up and move today!
Work starts tomorrow which means I am officially back on my meal prep and scheduling. It's a love/hate relationship! Today I will be prepping these things for the week:
Protein Pancakes for breakfast (I'll make batches in 3s and pop them in the freezer, microwaving in the mornings)
"While I feel it is very important to strive to eat quality foods, I also think it is unrealistic to expect that we won't have off meals or "cheats" from time to time. I've seen extremes where people say they will never have ice cream or pizza again because it is bad, and though there are better choices, I don't know if that mindset is right either.
If we change the mindset from "never because it's bad" to, "I can, but not right now" I feel we will have a much better relationship with our foods.
If you were to take a kids halloween candy and pull out all the licorice, then tell them they can have any piece but the licorice, guess what they will want and crave the most? The licorice. Saying we can't have it may lead to a further desire for it and then indulgence and guilt may follow.
If you know you can have it, if you want, then that desire isn't as strong and you are more likely to consume in moderation or skip it altogether."
So perfect and I agree. I just needed that burger, man. Anyway, have a great Sunday! Today ends my first week of my NASM class...it's going to be tough but I'm excited that I'm finally started and on my way to becoming a Certified Personal Trainer! Happy Sunday!
