Choosing Fitness over Instant Gratification PLUS Easy, Healthy Recipe

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:

    i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam comments?

    1. 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!
