Choosing Fitness over Instant Gratification PLUS Easy, Healthy Recipe

3 Apr

I must admit today I rationalized with myself the benefits of going to In ‘n Out Burger. “I’ve been eating so well these last few days so I deserve it.”… “Burger and fries taste so much better than my usual boring food.” … “I’m not looking too bad – and my competition is a couple months away.” It is surprising how many rambling thoughts can push us into poor eating and lack of exercise modes. Occasional treats and rest are important to maintain balance; however, noticing our shifts toward unhealthy territory can help us to steer back on track with our goals while still enjoying life.

Instead of veering off course, I thought of how I want to look and feel, the people who are supporting me on this competition journey and how blah! I would feel after eating all those calories and fat. So, I immediately shut down those negative excuses and cooked one of my favorite foods: The Spicy Spinach Omelette. Photo, ingredients and directions are below. If you want more carbohydrates, add a side of 1/2 cup brown rice with a few dashes of pepper. Try this recipe or one of your favorites when you want to stray from your plan.

Spicy Spinach Omelette (with optional Brown Rice):

Ingredients: 6 egg whites or 1 cup liquid egg whites, 2 cups chopped spinach, dashes of ground pepper, dashes of Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy, Pam Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray; 1 tbsp ketchup

Directions: Spray pan and pre-heat stove to medium/medium-high heat; add liquid egg whites and let cook until edges are light brown; add spices and spinach; flip over eggs and reduce heat to medium-low/medium; cook until fluffy and lightly brown; place omelette on plate with side of ketchup.

Here is my food in progress:

    Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and
    i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam comments?
    If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any support is very much appreciated.

      Hi, and thank you for checking out my blog! I’m sorry to hear you are getting spam comments. First, I would check your settings to see if you have them set so you can moderate the comments and choose if you want to approve them. Second, I think I did get a couple spam comments in the beginning but then they stopped. Has this been going on for a long time? If so, I would also check your e-mail settings to see if it blocks spam. I hope that helps!
