What’s On Your Plate? #GetFit

Whats-on-your-plate

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?

which one is your plate?

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!

I hope that I can and will inspire just one person and my hard work will have been all worth the sweat and tears.

A few yummy bites from last week and this week so far, were things like: Jamaican Brown Stew Chicken, Oatmeal, Watermelon, Hot Tea, Curry Chicken, Broccoli, Chicken Tacos, Chicken or Turkey Wraps, Veggie burger w/ turkey bacon and the works and Guacamole and Chips (I always have a FUN, FILLING AND EXCITING MENU).

Confidence?? Confidence!! Swagger!!

CONFIDENCE: (n.) (adj.): A feeling or belief that you can do something well or succeed at something.

antonyms: difference, insecurity, self-distrust, self-doubt

synonyms: attitude, self-assurance, demeanor of coolness, self-esteem, swagger

confidence 1

Having CONFIDENCE is an important trait for ME! But, unfortunately there are many LADIES and GIRLS that don’t feel the same way or have the same level of confidence as other young ladies that they may socialize with or come in contact with.

But, sometimes we just need a little booster… such as: that BAD ASS OUTFIT! Or that flawless makeup!!! Yess!!! So, remember… it doesn’t matter the cost of that outfit or what it is, but that CONFIDENCE is what make the outfit a BAD one.

Whatever you wear, ROCK IT!!!
Whatever you wear, #ROCKIT!!! Photo Cred.: google search

AND, REMEMBER YOU WEAR THE OUTFIT… DON’T LET IT WEAR YOU!

And, if that simple little dress or cute outfit just isn’t poppin’… well, there’s ALWAYS makeup for a little enhancement. And, I LOVE putting on makeup. People sometimes think when you wear makeup, that you have to wear it… but, I beg to differ. Your face is an ART CANVASS and, you are simply creating a better picture with a little color, blush, highlight, or sparkle. IT’S FUN!

Now, that you are dressed and you need something else to make it all come together and POP! Put on a little makeup and your brows are acting right that night… you definitely have to get out for a night out on the town.

Showing PURE Confidence!
Showing PURE Confidence!

So, I say all of that to say… let’s remember and use those SYNONYMS at the beginning of this post and EMBRACE them more. And, for those SILLY ANTONYMS, let’s leave them in the past an behind us.

Because, we are all beautiful and wonderfully made… so, let’s embrace those flaws and highlight our natural beauty. Stop focusing on the negative.

So, REMEMBER…. YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL, SHE’S BEAUTIFUL, I’M BEAUTIFUL… now stop and strike a pose in front of that mirror and take a selfie of our beautiful selves.

I challenge you to tell 3 LADIES or TEEN or LITTLE GIRL that she’s beautiful and look at that smile that will appear.

The ladies let their CONFIDENCE shine BRIGHT...
The ladies let their CONFIDENCE shine BRIGHT…

Until next time readers, Be BeYOUtiful,

Be Amazing, Be Great!

The Journey of a Foodie

I love food and since I have started on my #GetFit journey, I wanted to try new things and try to incorporate them in my day to day eating habits.

About 2 months ago, I tried chik patties and it was actually good. I prefer them in the oven, although if you don’t have much time you can put them in the microwave (I personally don’t care to do it that way).

Morning Star Chik Patties Original

So, this is what I had for lunch today and I paired it with avocado and drizzled a little of my avocado cilantro dressing on it and it was YUMMY! 🙂

It’s important to eat for a BETTER YOU and it’s very exciting to try new things! And, it doesn’t hurt to try something once and if you don’t like it– you don’t have to get it again…just to try it out and if you like it.

So, during your weekly shopping… pickup something NEW and give it a try! You might be surprised and actually like it!!! I’m still on my journey and I am going to make this fun and exciting. Two years ago, I would have never picked up anything that veggie based or even give up pork, but I did.

Happy Eating and thank you for reading!

Ms. Tammy
