Are you clean?
Thursday, October 20, 2011
I had my training session with George today and after, I felt amazing. It was finally one that pushed me again (took it easy before and week after marathon). And, I love that feeling. I love going to muscle failure. I like making my muscles shake. Burned 320 calories just lifting. WOO!
Anyway, as I work out, I'm looking at myself in the mirror. And George comments about the fact that I have a good amount of muscle and I said I want to be toned and fit like I always talk about. And he goes 'well we have talked about this, and you know what you need to do'. Abs are made in the kitchen. You cant make up for bad eating in the gym. Dont believe me? I'm proof.
I KILL IT in the gym. I work out, thats not the issue. Its my food. And i'm not just talking staying in calorie range, I'm also talking about the food I choose. Its not clean, its not always healthy, and its leavin the jiggle in my belly, thighs and my precious behind that i'm so proud of.
So? I want to attempt to focus, buckle down and start eating clean. 100%? Nope. But 85-90%. I love my yogurtland (frozen yogurt), I dont have it all the time, but i dont want to give that up. I also dont want to be freaking out when I really want a cheese burger (my ABSOLUTE fav food).
My question to you all is...are you a clean eater? What are your favorites? The only thing I worry about is during the work week. I dont have access to 1. a microwave or 2. a fridge. I have a lunch box with ice packs, thats it!
I have been doing chicken breast with salad, almonds, cheese, a clif bar or kind bar (YUM). I went to trader joes and got their decaf candy cane green tea (YUMM! holiday fav) and these new trader joes chocolate chip brownie and oats bars. I know, i'm sure they arent "CLEAN" (also someone define that for me!) but a better dessert option than oreos!!!!!
I want to do better. And like George said, "YOU DESERVE BETTER" and I am truly starting to believe that.
Like my friend AMC120 says "eat clean, train dirty". New motto.
