Last week I hosted a group on Facebook where we all focused on eating very clean, reading all of our ingredients on processed foods and avoiding anything we wouldn't use cooking in our own kitchen. I always feel awesome after I do one of these groups and I have decided to stick with it more long-term.
I always try to eat pretty well, but I wanted to really start fresh because after I a while I find myself drifting back to the land of ice cream and Goldfish. (my weaknesses!) So after this week of clean eating I felt great and decided to pick it up a notch by doing 21 Day Fix again.
I LOVE 21 Day Fix because on top of my focus on clean ingredients it also forces me to meal plan so I eat the right amount of containers each day. (Containers = types of food - protein, carbs, fruits, veggies, fats/cheese, oils/seeds)
Meal planning is a pain in my ass for the 1 hour I do it. But it also saves me time the rest of week, helps counteract laziness of not wanting to cook or having to come up with an idea for dinner when I am already starving.
I have been sharing stuff on my personal Facebook (you can add me if you want!) non-stop lately about eating clean, trying to convince people from afar....also probably annoying people, but oh wellll!
This is what I posted on there earlier today:
You can't undo eating crap by eating a few really good things or working out sometimes. You have to flip that on it's head and eat clean and be active almost all of the time with the occasional not good food or day where you lay around.
Superfoods are great, yeah, but you can't still drink 3 Cokes a day and other nonsense like that (crackers or ice cream for me), add Shakeology or a few healthy things here and there and think everything is dandy.
I have a lot of friends who are into cars/trucks/anything that moves and you will drive to specific gas stations because you say they have better gas. Yet you drink Monster or smoke cigarettes or eat and drink anything filled with chemicals. You are treating your car/truck/whatever better than yourself! What is really most important here? You can't enjoy that car if you are sick!
That last little part was a personal rant..sorry! Back to my message - Eat healthy and move often...at least 80% of the time. Just do it.
Want to do 21 Day Fix with me? I can add you to my group of friends doing the program together!
Hi, I'm Jessie!
I live in NH with my husband and our pups. My favorite things are coaching Girls on the Run, eating good food that I didn't have to cook, helping other people work on their health, volunteering for and running races, watching tv, doing yoga, and spending too much time on social media. #Balance
