If you read my last post, you'll know that Paul and I are planning a Mediterranean holiday next summer. Last night while watching The Biggest Loser I realized that I do not want to feel or look like a baby whale on the beach in Greece and Croatia. Instead I want to look like THIS:
This, my friends, is Heidi Klum. Heidi, along with Britney Spears and Scarlett Johansson make up my "Women I Wish I Looked Like" trifecta. Heidi is also going to be my visual motivation to kick ass in the weight loss department. I want to be one of those people who get up at 6 am on their vacation to run on the beach. I also want to feel more proud of and comfortable in my body.
Therefore, today was a very good day for me! Here are my eats:
Breakfast: Smoothie with baby spinach, mixed berries, 1/2 banana, and orange juice; Egg, veggie sausage and cheese McMuffin
Lunch: Three Cheese Rigatoni Lean Cuisine, cucumber, Diet Pepsi
Snack: 6 Saltines, 1/2 banana
Dinner: Parsley and lemon crusted cod, couscous, and roasted broccoli; Lemonade with fresh mint
I do have to say: Eating healthy is kind of a lot of work. It feels weird putting so much thought into what's going into your mouth when you have been unconscious about it for so long. Of course there are a lot of changes I could make, including less processed food for lunch.
It's going to be a long journey until July-August of 2012. I hope by then this healthy eating thing becomes more of a habit. Only 500 or so days to go!
