Clean Eating 1 Week Review

Overall this week went very well and I was very happy with the choices that I had made. I didn't notice any changes in my energy level, but I am also adjusting to working 12 hour shifts. I did though experience more of a full feeling and was less apt to snacking between meals. The one huge difference for me was I felt a ton less bloated! I hate that feeling, so this was a nice change:)

Here are some of my favorite changes from the week:

Granola that is locally made right here close to my town, paired with Greek Yogurt.

Chia Powder purchased at the Whole Food store. I added this to my yogurt, it adds a thicker consistency along with tons of health benifits!! The powder is easier for your syestem to digest than Chia Seeds.

All natural snack bar. It was delicious!

OMG!!! I picked up a package of these on my way out of the whole food store and after
1 bite I was hooked! The best peanut butter cup I have ever eatten!

Fresh Cherries = BLISS:)

Fresh sliced pears topped with Greek Yogurt. Then sprinkled with a Tbsp. of Good Life Granola. Heavenly!

Progress: ) and my first clean breakfast

My overnight oats were not horrible, but very heavy in my stomach. I could only eat a few bites. I am going to try a hot oatmeal recipe this morning and see if I prefer that more.

Here's to another great day, full of making better choices:)

Clean eating challenge

I am starting a new challenge today.
Everyone on the internet has there own ideas about what Clean Eating is. I am just challenging myself to eat more whole foods and not so much processed, prepackaged foods.

I love my morning coffee with vanilla creamer and that I am not willing to give up;) But as for the rest of my day I will aim to make better choices:)

I am excited to see if these changes will give me more energy or not? With me working 12 hour shifts now I need all the help I can get! Hehe:D

Have a great day friends,

My week in review

Well I just completed my first three 12 hour shifts and WOW, I have had to process a lot! My new job is going well at the hospital:) I am happy to report that I have been maintaining my weight loss these last few weeks. I wasn't sure how it was going to go with me eating and sleeping at different times but I am thrilled to just see the scale numbers staying the same.

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!
