The title of this post is something that Jillian Michaels said in the first episode of her new show “Losing it with Jillian.” Have you seen it yet? I just caught up on it tonight and I’m not sure if I like it yet (too over the top?) but this statement definitely spoke to me. I have to say, I’ve been struggling lately. It’s like 2 people/minds are inside my body. One is reasonable and passionate about life and fitness and quality foods and the other just wants to sit on the couch all day and eat. I’ve been giving in to both. I’ve been eating healthy all day and then you guessed it – plopping my butt on the couch at the end of the day and snacking away. Against my better judgment. Merely hours (maybe even less) after hearing such a powerful message (that I even wrote down!) from Jillian.
Good news: I have a wonderful weekend to look forward to. Adam and I are driving down to NY tomorrow to visit my sister and her boyfriend at their new place in Brooklyn. I am so excited. I love my sister and I can’t wait to spend a whole weekend together in one of my favorite cities in the world. It’s going to be glorious. Our schedule is already filling up with foodie, fitness and other fun events. I hope I am able to share it all with you upon our return. Nothing like a weekend away to recharge my batteries!
Let’s see what I ate today before the whole bingeing thing happened. Again.
Oikos with a crumbled banana zucchini walnut muffin, warm blueberries and walnuts
Gorgeous breakfast. Makes me happy just looking at it.
Giant salad: organic mixed greens, organic pea shots, grilled eggplant, asparagus & peppers + prosciutto crusted pork and goat cheese, dressed with 1T Annie’s goddess dressing
Let’s get closer…
Yeah, fantastic. I made one for Adam and he called to tell me mid-day how delicious it was. The man does not usually get excited for salads, so this was something special.
+ cherry & chocolate granola bar + watermelon
I went back to my old yoga class today (it’s been a few weeks since I was gearing up for the race) and it felt amazing. I actually think I hurt my shoulder somehow in the midst of it all though. When it hurt “so good”… I guess it really did get hurt. Oh well. My legs feel much more open. It was a better stretch than my massage on Tuesday. I need to make yoga a priority again.
This came together in minutes since I basically combined stuff I had in the fridge. Speedy does not mean boring, though.
TJ’s orzo mix with roasted broccoli, baby spinach, shrimp and roasted red pepper tomato sauce (I received the sauce through the Foodbuzz Taste Test program – I’ll do a separate review of the sauce in a different post. I liked it though!) + a bit of parmesan cheese to finish it off.
This was so satisfying. Orzo is such a fun change from regular old pasta sometimes. Loved this dinner!
So I thought being satisfied with my meals and keeping portions very generous would keep bingeing desires at bay but that’s all I want to do when I’m alone. Reflex I guess. I’m working on it.
I promise to be back soon with a much happier post. Have a fabulous weekend!!!!!!!!!!
