Full Day of Eating

  • 1394 calories, 132 g protein, 126 g carbs, 37 g fat
    𝐁𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐤𝐟𝐚𝐬𝐭: Overnight oats! I’m getting better at this, and these portions were my best attempt yet! I used 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt, 1/2 cup almond milk, and 1 teaspoon chia seeds plus 1 teaspoon hemp seeds. Then, 24 hours in the fridge and topped with raspberries!
  • 𝐋𝐮𝐧𝐜𝐡: Classic green salad with 5 ounces chicken grilled in an air fryer, fruit, 1/2 ounce feta, 1/2 ounce pecans, and the sweet bolthouse dressing, pomegranate flavor. Better get used to daily green salads… I only have 87 more till that bikini show!!
  • 𝐒𝐧𝐚𝐜𝐤: YUM! I mixed greek yogurt with protein powder, and added banana and walnuts to the top.
  • 𝐃𝐢𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐫: Pre-cooked some chicken for the next few days! I’ve been brining it for 24 hours before i cook it, and it’s such a game changer! I just put one package of raw meat in a bowl of water disolved with 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/2 cup salt. Refrigerate it until it’s ready to cook. So tender and juicy!
    I ate the chicken with sweet potatoes cooked in the air fryer, and peppers with feta cheese under a broiler.

Quick thoughts of the day on self-mastery

Self-mastery or self-discipline is something I’ve been intrigued with for a long time. So, I’m always looking up talks on the topic of developing mastery of your physical self.

I love this quote I heard in a church talk recently:

“Self-denial … is not the negative, forbidding thing that often we shake our heads about. In one sense there is no such thing as self-denial, for what we call such is the necessary price we pay for things on which our hearts are set.”

Harry Emerson Fosdick 1920

Self-denial is not restrictive. It is liberating. It is the pathway to freedom. It is strength. If I choose self-denial, I am choosing freedom from my addictions, however you define them.

I fully believe that food shouldn’t have power over you. Food is just food. When we give food our power, we no longer have self mastery. Repeat after me…. I am stronger than a cookie!

What are your thoughts? How can you not let food control your actions? How can YOU be in control of your actions?
