2 weeks healthier

Ok, I need to clarify...

"Healthier" to me does not mean a crazy workout regimen, sticking to a strict diet of only green leafy things, or drinking disgusting protein shakes. It means I was running out of things to add to my 30 before 30 list and thought 30 days of eating {mostly} healthy was a good idea. So for the month of April (all 30 days) I am trying to be healthier.

Here's what that means... no more candy, chocolate, bacon (so so, sad about this one). ice cream, butter, cheese (so very limited dairy, only a scoop of nonfat yogurt in my smoothies), and a lot less processed stuff. I do still need my tortilla chips/salsa fix and pretzels, so I refuse to give those up. I also have the occasional cup of coffee with 1/2 tablespoon of fat free vanilla creamer. Healthy for me has to be doable! Here's some of the meals I've been eating...
Salmon, stir fry veggies, brown rice, baked potato and broccoli (with garlic salt but no bacon, sour cream, or shredded cheese. boo!), oatmeal (not the instant kind), steamed corn, green beans, and broccoli.
In place of all my favorite things (potato chips, pizza, movie theatre popcorn to name a few) there has been a lot of chicken, fish, rice, beans, fruit, veggies, tea, and home-made juices.

And I had one cheat meal where I ate these 5 sushi rolls. But they were made of tuna, shrimp, jalapeno, cucumber, rice, and sea weed which I think are all healthy ingredients. I gave Andrew the tempura shrimp, even though it's my favorite. He is pretty happy about me eating healthy because he gets to eat my share of the ice cream in the freezer. Lucky!

At this point I am half way done and feeling pretty good about it. I mean, I think about krispy kreme doughnuts every 1.5 seconds, but that's normal for me. We do have a weekend in Austin coming up where I know BBQ will be involved so perhaps that will be my real cheat meal. I am not turning down ribs, brisket, and pulled pork.. refusing delicious meat goes against everything I stand for!

2 more weeks to go!
But if I'm not skinny by then I'm giving up healthy eating for good. It's just not worth it :)

  1. Yummy!! Looks like some fun healthy food! But good call on not skipping the BBQ next weekend. That would be sinful.
