Eat What You Love.

I’m sorry to shout, but…



Yes, this was my dinner tonight. Gah. I just have no words.

Oh, and in the corner there is a toasted tortilla! I toast them on the stovetop in a skillet and they get a little crispy and bubbly – sort of resembling naan. Love them!

Eating what you love

I am a firm believer in eating what I love. I think it is pretty hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle when you don’t enjoy the things you are eating, right? Even for those who “eat to live” instead of “live to eat” must enjoy some of the things they eat, right?

This is a huge factor for me when it comes to fitness competitions, and the main reason I haven’t done any lately, nor do I plan to do any more. I want to love everything I eat and eat everything I love. Gone are the days when I down protein powder and plain chicken. It just ain’t happenin’!

I never played this game when it came to vegetables though. I have always forced down a few at least a couple times a week. In all seriousness, that may have meant some corn or at least spinach in a smoothie. I’m not loving every bite of vegetables I eat but I know I need to eat them. I need those vitamins and minerals, even if I do roast the hell out of them. So while I really don’t love them, I’m forcing myself to eat them.
Do you believe in loving everything you eat? And I’m obviously not talking chocolate and bacon here.

Fun Stuff

  • I created a workout schedule where you can see what exercise I’m doing daily. You can access it from the Work It Out tab. It mostly happened out of boredom, I admit. Hopefully I will have the patience be able to update it each day. What do you guys think?
  • I created a separate page for the other workouts I’ve posted before since the page was getting soooo long. I’m going to add to it over the next few days, but in the meantime, you can see the newer workouts that I’ve actually done by clicking on the “fitness kick start” tab on the left sidebar in the tag cloud.
