Tuesday was TYLTW (Take Your Lunch To Work). This one was easy peasy, since I take my lunch to work pretty much every day. I also eat at my desk and don’t take an actual lunch break which most people say you shouldn’t do but for me it works. Personally I’d rather leave earlier and spend more time with my Girlie in the afternoon than take an hour to do whatever.
Wednesday was Write it Down. I used to use MyFitnessPal all the time. Before that I used paper food journals. These days I’m trying to get into the mindset of clean eating without logging, journaling, etc. It was kinda fun to write it all down on Wednesday and realize that, most days I’m eating within guidelines without trying too hard. Granted that day’s lunch was a little carb heavy due to a random mishmosh of leftovers but that’s ok.
Thirsty Thursday- Smoothie Day. Another easy one. I make a smoothie for a midmorning snack almost every day. Iced coffee, protein powder, cocoa powder, and baby spinach. Don’t worry, you can’t taste the spinach. It just takes like a little healthier version of a mochachino.
Go Raw Friday was hard for me to get my head around. It’s been bitter cold and snowy around here plus Friday was Valentines Day. The last thing I wanted was a salad and I didn’t want to have to run to the grocery store. I was actually chatting about this with a neighborhood mom friend at the bus stop and I remembered Stuft Mama’s 3 Ingredient Fudge. Yum! I put it into a heart shaped cupcake pan and voila. Unfortunately my pictures all came out a little blurry. I just realized that I’m not following StuftMama’s recipe. When I looked for the link I realized that I must’ve adapted it because I’ve never purchased PB2. I use 1 banana, 1-2 tbsp of peanut butter and 1-2 tbsp of cocoa powder. (The other ingredients vary based on the size of the banana.)
If you were to do one of this week’s challenges which would you do and why?
