So a lot of you wanted to know my eating habits. Although I had put up a fitness post a few months ago. I thought I’d post a picture of what I normally have for lunch. It always looks a little like this:
So yes, to answer a few of your questions, I do eat carbs (for breakfast and lunch only), I just make sure it’s whole wheat and in a small portion. I’ll have my protein, steamed veggies and a salad. Once again everything is in small portions. I can’t finish it all in one sitting so I’ll eat half for lunch and then in 2 hours I’ll eat the rest. Then dinner at 7.
🙂 No carbs for dinner, and I don’t drink anything until 40min to 1hr after my meals.
Sorry this took a minute, I know a lot of you had requested a post on my health/fitness routine. So here it is!
I work out 3x a week with my personal trainer. We do 15 min of stretching, 15 min of cardio, 45 mins weights/core depending on the body part we are targeting that day, and then we finish with a 15 min massage/stretch. I also try to go get a work-out alone in between my sessions with my trainer but sometimes I have a hard time cause of my schedule with school and family life. This has been my schedule for about 4 months now. I completely stopped doing classes like spinning and cardio barre cause I got tired of them. Especially Cardio Barre lol, after 7 or 8 years of going it just got OLD.
Along with working out I eat very healthy about 5 days a week, and I cheat about 2 days but not the full day. I might cheat for dinner or lunch. What I mean by “I eat healthy” is that on Sundays I will go grocery shopping and on Sunday night I will cook for the next 5 days Monday-Friday. I only prepare my 5 days of lunch, because I am home for dinner and our housekeeper prepares my dinners for me. The only thing I will do for dinner is take out the fish or meat that I will be eating that night from the freezer and the nanny will marinate it for me and have it ready by 5 with whatever veggies she decided to put with it. The meals I make are given to me by my trainer who is also a nutritionist. I get a new menu every 2 months, this way by body does not get used to the same food and plateau.
Here is my nutrition in a nut shell: I eat every 2 hours, I start with a heavy breakfast which includes protein, complex carbs and good fats, I limit my carbs to only breakfast and lunch, fish 3x a week, red meat 1 or maybe 2x a week, healthy snacks like unsalted peanut butter with apples, or hummus with celery, very very low seasoning and sodium in everything I eat, lots of water, everything is in small portions, no protein shakes, or pre-workouts, or bullshit skinny teas. I am scared to take anything artificial, cause that s&%# may benefit you in one aspect, but hurt you in another.
I don’t pretend to be into fitness, working out, or pretend to go on hike once a month. I have been athletic and have loved to work out since I was a teen. I care very much about looking and feeling great, and it has always been one of my top priorities. I am always inspired by women who do the same, cause it sure isn’t easy!
Hope this post helped. If anyone has questions feel free to send me and email or comment. I will make sure to answer all the questions.
