im kinda nervous about today as it is the 4th of july which means fair food, barbecue type food, soda, sweets, cakes, whipped cream….a lot of just…bad. but most of those things are sooooo tempting, namely elephant ears, pound cake, and s’mores. so in an effort to combat my sweet toothed cravings i am trying to eat lots of healthy food before i head out for the day. i will probably have a nice big salad or something before i go and work out but these muffins are seriously the best!! they are so filling and quick and easy to make
recipe: micro-oven muffin
-1 egg beaten
-1 tsp olive/coconut/or canola oil
-1 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
-1/2 tsp cinnamon
-1/2 tsp baking soda
-1/4 cup ground flax-seed
-some berries. i used raspberries
then all you have to do is spray a teacup with a little bit of onven spray or just smooth a little oil in it before pouring the batter in and then microwave for as long as needed
breakfast: fruit and tea!
lunch: flaxseed microwave homemade instant muffin, spinach w/ light dressing, and an apple
dinner: amys california veggie burger with ruddy’s whole wheat bun and pesto, lightly steamed asparagus and bell pepper, spinach, and some barries
good day! as long as i don’t eat any sweets this will have been pretty close to perfect! i also still need to work out…but I’m feeling kinda lazy.
tomorrows the 4th…kinda freaking out as there will be so many tempting bad foods:/
breakfast, lunch, and what i had for a snack…i forgot to take a picture of what i had for dinner…it was egg salad incase anyone was wondering.
in all honesty i didn’t/ haven’t been doing so well. i know i am eating way more calories than i should be if i want to loose weight. i keep reaching for small bites of high calorie things like cheeses, and chips. i want to eat cleaner and jest less over all. i know how to eat healthy but I’m having trouble rebuilding/ maintaing good habits :/ i will try to be better tomorrow.
oh i also worked out for a half hour going for a bike ride…i used to be able to do an hour. I’m feeling really down now… i want ice cream but i am determined to resist! i think i will jump on the elliptical machine and then shower before bed:) tomorrow will be better.
