Things were a little more low key this past week. I keep feeling like I’m on the verge of sickness so I take a day and rest and it goes away – but then it shows right back up! I dialed back the workouts so I wouldn’t wear my body down too much.
I’m back at it this week though!
Like I mentioned last week, I’m focusing on fresh foods and feeling fine. Lots of green juice, smoothies, fresh fruits, salads, etc….
Keeping it up this week as well. Focusing on fresh green smoothies for breakfast, big ass salads for lunch, lean and green dinners and some fruit and veggie snacks in between.
Because there are only 3 precious weeks left till swimsuit time, I’m trying really hard to cut down on the sugar this week – it’s my weakness and honestly a slight addiction. I just love cookies/brownies/donuts/chocolate/you name it so much!! Focusing on getting my sweets from fruit (we’ll see how that goes).
green smoothie: spinach, romaine, cucumber, celery, green apple & grapefruit juice
raw “cereal”: banana, berries, sliced almonds, ground flaxseed, crumbled macaroon, homemade almond milk
You guys – I feel like I’m having “bi-polar body image” right now, does that make sense? Some days I feel awesome and I strut around the gym like a boss (I love being the only girl in the weight room) and other days I swear all this hard work is for nothing and that it’s not making a difference.
If I were talking to you I would say to go easy on yourself and love your body for all the amazing things it does for you. I would say to fuel it with fresh foods that help you to thrive and to move and sweat and shake what your mama gave you. I would tell you that you are beautiful and perfect.
So why do I have such a hard time telling all of that to myself?
This week I resolve to be kinder to my body and to myself. It’s just a beach trip and the world will not end if I don’t have the perfect body (which doesn’t even exist by the way). And if all else fails – I just won’t share any bikini pics LOL.
Hope you’re all doing well. Be back soon!
