I feel like junk.
My stomach has been up and down and unsettled for the past 36 hours. I'm not sure if it's something I ate, my new vitamins (Trader Joe's women's multi), the heat (high 90s), or what...but it's an issue.
So, we'll keep this quick!
Breakfast: frozen mixed berries/spinach/vanilla protein powder/almond milk smoothie
|hey berry smoothie.|
|travel cup...so classy|
|perfect summer salad!|
|working on my weekly goals! just slurped down the last of a big cup of water.|
Dinner: another smoothie because my stomach is wayyyy off and I don't have any appetite. UGH.
|thick like a milkshake!|
Has anyone read this book- "Secrets of a Former Fat Girl", by Lisa Delaney? It's actually pretty good. The author recaps her weight loss and the strategies she used to keep herself in check as she changed her diet and became a runner. My favorite strategy is "INO" or "It's Not an Option". She uses this acronym when she feels tempted to cut her workout short or binge on pizza. The author also discusses "pushers", which would be people that, whether out of good intention or bad, want to push foods on you that you may not eat due to diet/health/etc. Pushers may try to tempt a vegetarian to eat a juicy cheeseburger. Pushers may encourage someone following the Paleo diet to have a cookie or bagel. Get it?
I like this book. I've been reading it off and on for the past few months, re-reading chapters and reflecting on them. I've read several "diet" books, and this is one of my favorites.

Alright, time to shut this baby down and relax for a few hours. Last full day with students tomorrow! :)
