You guys, it happened. It finally happened. I have been able to consistently eat clean for like, 2 weeks.
whatever, you’re about to hear about it
I was in a real rut for awhile there, but I guess the wedding countdown really made me buckle down. I haven’t had bad food (more than the odd treat) for 2-3 weeks and I honestly don’t even crave Domino’s anymore. I never thought I’d see the day. You see, James and I were getting to know our Domino’s delivery guys on a personal level for awhile there, we had a “usual”, we’d start to recognize each other by name, ask what our plans for the weekend were.. ours plans were usually eating pizza in our sweatpants because we’re really cool.
Since breaking up with our friends at Domino’s, I’m starting to see results from this willpower I’m exuding over here. For example, on Saturday I went to Costco and I bought a pair of black dress pants there for work (don’t judge me, Costco has some great stuff), and I bought a size 8 and then went home and tried them on and they’re too big on me. Boom! Size 6 in Costco pants.
I’m eating things like cucumbers for snacks like I’m a freaking rabbit or something. Example A:
Last night I made chili lime tilapia tacos with fresh mango salsa for dinner. Also, I make sure that I have salad every single night.
This was my lunch yesterday. My old snack plates had triple the brie and zero plants, now check me out.
The other night I had to pick up take-out for us because it was one of those days, but I got grilled chicken salad wraps from our local Vietnamese restaurant and made a salad to go with it.
And instead of my usual 2 earl grey tea’s with milk and sugar per day, I’m officially obsessed with this caffeine-free ginger peach herbal tea. I even dressed in peach the other day to match it the box. Me and this tea are besties now, and friends that dress alike, stay together.
Oh and also, I’m still going to Crossfit and I’m loving it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m terrified and nervous for the whole class because it’s intimidating as hell. Like on Friday, the coach was like “Okay, we’re going to learn handstand push-ups” and I was like “Uhh, I can tell you right now that this won’t happen for me.” Obviously I was no where close to actually achieving that feat that she makes look so easy, but I did do a teddy bear headstand (google it) and I was squealing for her to look at me because it basically blew my mind that I was able to do it after the 27th try. Crossfit Games here I come, ha! Anyways, I know that it’s working because muscles that I didn’t even know that I had are sore. Every day my body is sore, every. damn. day. So just 48 more days of this torture and I am praying that my upper body looks toned and amazing for my strapless walk down the aisle. A girl can dream.
Speaking of Crossfit I’m off to my 7am class now. Please cross your fingers that I haven’t puked or passed out, I’m pretty on the cusp of both of those outcomes like, every class.
How long do you go eating clean for?
Do you make snack plates for meals?
Does anyone else go to Crossfit?
