Yesterday morning I felt absolutely horrible. I can honestly say I am going to stay away from alcohol (and tonic water) this month. I didn’t have a lot to drink but it just absolutely went throooouuuuugh me! I’m not sure if it’s because I hadn’t drank in some time or if it was the sugar.. maybe a bit of both? It was like a sugar hangover/alcohol hangover!
I decided to get active and keep myself occupied. I got out of the house and went to the gym for a solid 3 hours, an hour or so of that just goofing around mind you, but the goal was really just to get moving and to keep myself busy.
Now I don’t know about you but food is always on my mind. I view food as fuel for my body, not something to indulge in (however every now and then it is nice) and because of this, i’m always thinking of the total nutrients I’ve consumed by the end of the day – it’s just how my mind functions.
I think about what I had for breakfast, lunch, dinner, about how much protein I consumed, was it a suitable amount of carbohydrates, fat? All the macronutrients. I know it’s a lot of thinking for just food BUT – I only have one body, one ‘vehicle’ to get me through this life so why not fuel it with the best nutrients possible? I want to get to that finish line having lived the healthiest, most enjoyable life possible. I want to feel good, look great and be positive day after day.
Aaannnnnd, I have 3 boys to feed at home, so I have to consider their health also! I want nothing more than our bodies to be the equivalent of F1 racecars; Top performing, efficient, sustainable, reliable and I wouldn’t mind beautiful! Food is fuel. Fuel your body with the food it deserves.
WHAT I ATE:
Meal 1: Protein Smoothie. Okay I spoke about this being a poor breakfast option the other day, but I had this during my workout so it helped fuel me throughout. In short, it was a good option this day!
Meal 2: Steak with mashed sweet potato, mushrooms and salad.
Snack: Ginger & lemon tea.
Total Cups of Water: 8
HOW DID YOU FEEL:
Better towards the end of the day! Sweating out the alcohol in the gym was a great idea. I also ate a lot less again, but I didn’t really need it so much. I was satisfied with what I consumed. As I said the other day – read your body. It’ll tell you what it wants.
DID YOU WORKOUT?: YES!
Yes! Arms and legs. It was killer! I didn’t write down the workout though! I’ll be sure to do so today 🙂
P.S I’m thinking of adding photos or recipes or videos etc… Thoughts? How did YOUR forth day go on the 30 Day Sugar Free Challenge? Let me know! Leave me a comment! And if you want to know or hear about anything else just drop me a message!
