I found breakfast to be huge and dinner looks super light. Also definitely ate raw broccoli as my AM veggies. Could not finish but had as my afternoon snack along with a banana. Can we eat our calories fluidly? Still got 150ml of milk too. W/o this program I’d probably be drinking a glass of wine and eating cheese as I make dinner right now but instead I’m working out! Seems like progress for sure.
I work at a company that provides AMAZING food as a perk...they seem really healthy and tasty, BUT I'm getting the sense that this will be a problem...They have salad bars and "simple" station with plain chx, steamed veggies, and rice but I won't be able to weigh my food without feeling awkward. Any tips or proxies on the weighing front?
I live outside of San Francisco with my two kids, husband and canine-child, Rubi (bed head photo attached).
I spend a lot of my time working and commuting these days, but when I'm not doing those things I love to be active with my family -- running, biking, hiking, swimming -- and working the garden listening to podcasts.
Success for me will be having more energy and losing the 10 lbs I packed on over the last year in a vicious stress-eat-numb cycle. I am a former athlete and feel far from athletic these days.
Making myself a priority will be my biggest challenge. I struggle with putting my needs before the needs of others. To navigate this, I will remind myself that exercise, sleep, and nutrition are the building blocks for my best self.
