Often times we don’t take notice to what we are putting in our bodies. Since, starting my #GetFit Life Journey I try to take pictures of every meal that I eat throughout the day.
People say; “OMG! Why?” For TWO REASONS on why I do what I do. Because #1. I want to remember the moment; especially if it was amazing food. #2. So that I can hold myself accountable for what’s on my plate. We have to hold ourselves, for something as important as living a healthier lifestyle.
If I didn’t do so well, I could always go back to my pictures and see exactly what I did incorrectly and make any necessary changes that would make a difference for the next time I got on the scale (don’t be afraid of the scale, I’ll talk about that in another post soon).
There are many things that we like and want to eat, but NOT necessary what we should eat. On that special day, when you want a taste of soda or that piece of cake. 🙂
So, here are a few things that I consume (we) should try to consume more of in our daily menu and eating habits. Things such as (be sure to try something new ONCE A WEEK):
FRUIT: ALL kinds, just be sure to eat in moderation because fruits have natural sugar… some more than others.
VEGGIES: green leafs (Spinach, Collard Greens (NO PORK), kale, broccoli, squash, carrots, and many other veggie options out there to try AT LEAST ONCE!
GRAINS: Brown Rice, Quinoa, Wheat Pasta, Veggie Pasta, wheat Bread, Sandwich Thins, Wraps and many more options in all grocery stores.
BEVERAGES: WATER, WATER, WATER, Green Tea (hot or cold), Crystal Light, Tonic Water (regular or with flavor) and all of these options are very REFRESHING and low in fat and calories.
NOW, it’s your turn! What’s in YOUR PLATE and what does it look like?
We have to start thinking of better food options. I am not saying that MY #GetFit Journey has been easy! Oh hell NO! But, because this is something that I know want and I am sick and I tired– I’m going to get it done! So JOIN ME!
