The Seventh Day

The seven days (of the 7 day workout) are up and I’ve loved every minute of it. I’ve eaten more salads than I normally would in the span of a week and I also drank a lot more green juices. I feel lighter and the bonus is that my jeans are actually fitting better. There are a lot of things that I will be continuing from the workout too. I’d like to eat more salads and drink more green juice. Having planned breakfasts have been a great help as well. I typically hurry through breakfast and I end up eating the same boring Ezekiel bread with e.v.o, when I could be eating a healthier, more well rounded breakfast, like the protein pancakes shown above. But food isn’t the only thing I’ll be continuing with. The workouts that were suggested have made exercise a lot more fun too. The "Fat Burning Workout" was one of my favourites by far. I also love the idea of getting cardio on one day and weight training on another - I used to just lump mine all in one day. Breaking them up makes a goal for me that I can feel good about each day.

During the week, I did go out to dinner, but I made sure that I kept to the protein, vegetable and starch rule. Like I said in previous posts, this workout was more about amping up my exercise routine, since I already eat fairly healthy. However, I did find that with the meal plan that Lauren suggested I managed to eat even more healthy foods.

If you have checked it out, and are considering to continue (like I am) take a look at her latest post.

  1. So what kind of pancake is this and where are you getting your recipes for green juices? Or are you buying them?

    Once I start eating better, I tend to turn to those foods all the time vs crappy foods!

    I had a smoothie tonight and then gold fish crackers and regret them after I ate them. It comes back but slowly!

    1. The pancake shown is a protein pancake which consisted of an egg, half a banana, a scoop of vanilla whey protein powder, cinnamon and added some milk until it was the consistency of pancakes.

      As for the green juice, I make my own. I just throw some spinach or kale into a blender add ice, unsweetened almond milk and fruit.

      Have your heard of Annie's Organics? They make bunny shaped crackers with better ingredients.
