Fail to prepare, you prepare to fail.
I know that all too well but these couple days I couldn’t help but fail in my meals. I was too busy, too tired and too excited to spend time out instead of staying home preparing and cooking. As a result, I ate the last week at least 1 meal a day out and they cause me nothing but bloat.
I feel out of energy. Plus I am more inclined to order unhealthy stuff when I’m ordering home but when I’m cooking myself, I don’t crave such stuff. I ate fried onions and veggie burgers and normal burgers as well. And all my ordered meals contained bread and they make me feel down. There is a very obvious difference I feel when I eat out vs I eat home, and even more when I eat raw. The less meat and the more raw I eat, then I am full of energy. I literally do feel it. But knowing this is not enough at times. I need to plan better. So ok, this week was a fail in food.
But then, I did well in the training department. After missing a couple WOD last week, when my baby was sick, I picked up from where I left. Weight training on Saturday, run/jog 5.5 km on Sunday. Monday I took a rest day and this evening I’m training again.
This morning I took the extra time to prepare my meals. I had 2 eggs, a nice piece of cheese and a huge tomato with olive oil for breakfast. No bread. I need to get rid of the bloat. For lunch I have a slice of eggplant/meat I have cooked yesterday and a huge bowl of salad. In the afternoon I will have 2 large carrots. The days when I go training, I don’t have dinner because I don’t feel comfortable training with my stomach full. I just eat a small meal in the afternoon and fuel up with dates whenever I have a sweet tooth.
Last week I drank my green smoothie in the morning for breakfast but I haven’t had smoothies since then. I need to pick that habit up again.
