I was feeling blah! I was not tracking what I was putting in my body and how I was treating my body. I was feeling sluggish and bloated and my motivation and mood was dropping again. No, I don’t want to go down that black whole again. So I had to make changes in my life.
I had been following Ali Edwards’ wellness journey on instagram. What she was talking about resonated with me so I piggybacked on some of her ideas.
The first thing was to have a look at my intake. I had been having a bowl of porridge every morning and that was working for me. I felt fulfilled with the warm feeling in my stomach on these cold winter mornings. So at this point in time I’m sticking with that.
For morning tea I’m including a smoothie and this combination is working for me presently.
As I’m at work for lunch I have found these are perfect. I stock up on them when they are on special. The green chicken curry is delish as well.
When I’m feeling peckish in the afternoon, I’ll have a handful of cashew nuts.
With dinner, I need to please the family but I am trying to add heaps of veggies with the protein of choice.
Looking for something sweet after dinner and I’ll reach for a premade chia pudding or an apple and that usually does the job.
My next post will talk about the fitness part of my wellness journey.
Thanks for popping in.
