sooooo. there’s a little something you need to know about me. i’m not much of a numbers girl. i don’t count calories or macros or use my fitness pal, so if you look at my snacks and think…”ooh, there’s a lot of fat there, or what about those carbs at dinner”, just know that’s not my thing. i shoot for healthy, as close to whole as possible and balanced. over the years i’ve really gotten in tune with my body and i know what my cravings mean and i go with them. i know when i need an egg or a scoop of peanut butter and i know when i need to juice some greens or add a tsp of coconut oil to my shake. some days it may look a little heavy in one area and light in another, but overall it all balances out for me. so, hopefully, if you are into the numbers, i won’t drive you too crazy.
and while we’re speaking of numbers, there are a few others that i want to challenge you to change your perspective on….the number on the scale, that pesky tag in your jeans and the number of candles on your birthday cake. all of these numbers can be used in a positive way to keep you on track or keep you motivated, but more often than not i see them being hyper focused on in a way that leads to defeat, discouragement and excuses. just become intentional and diligent about making your health a priority and the rest will fall into place.
as we go along, you’ll see me use some of our various products and you won’t have a clue what i’m talking about. i’ll slowly start highlighting some of them for you, but always feel free to just ask.
now for day 2 recap.
breakfast: my famous green creamcicle shake…2 scoops of IsaLean Vanilla, 1 scoop of Isagenix Greens and 1 scoop of Orange Amped Hydrate blended with water and ice.
morning snack: 1/2 cup lemon greek yogurt with hemp, pepita and chia seeds.
lunch: dairy free chunky monkey shake…1 packet Dairy Free Chocolate IsaLean shake, 1/2 ripe banana, 1 tablespoon powder peanut butter (read ingredients and find a brand that is just peanuts) blended with water and ice.
afternoon snack: boiled egg and leftover sauteed spinach
dinner: Thug Kitchen white bean and red lentil burger with all the fixins (and yes….even a bun) and baked sweet potato fries.
