So here it is: Don't do it.
- A feeding tube? That you wear and use voluntarily?
- 800 calories per day?
- Bloating and other side effects when you return to real food?
- No mention of exercise or other healthy habits?
If you're getting married, graduating, or experiencing some other exciting event where you want to look your best, plan ahead. Cut back slightly on portion sizes, introduce more fruits and vegetables, and gradually increase your exercise level. But more importantly, isn't it better to develop healthy habits that you can then actually maintain after the big day? Why do so many of us want to be/feel/look our best for just one day? Why not for the rest of our lives? Why not create a healthy lifestyle that you and your spouse can share and, should you have children, pass on to them and others around you?
|All too happy to eat on my wedding day!|
Okay, that's my little rant. We can talk more about that later if you'd like. Don't get a feeding tube. People will definitely make fun of you.
Today felt all kinds of strange. We had standardized testing at school for the second day in a row, and our class schedule changed to very long (74 minute) classes. That threw me off, but we also had lunch super early. Then after school I had my first meeting with our new cheerleaders for next year, and finally another meeting at school was postponed to next week. I'm not sure what it was, but something just felt off. I'm glad to be home earlier than expected and hoping to get some extra rest tonight.
What I Ate Wednesday for April 18, a gorgeous day in LA and a freezing day in my classroom.
|The extra cup definitely didn't happen today. :-/|
6:30 am - Breakfast
|Scramble with two eggs, big handful of spinach, some Italian sausage, and a few tablespoons of ricotta cheese|
11:30 am - Lunch
|Leftovers from last night - white pizza|
5:30 pm - Dinner
|Overnight oats - but they were for sure served in a Tupperware container. Super classy.|
9:00 pm - Dessert + glass of wine
|Say, what's in that mousse?|
Tonight's dessert was courtesy of Julie's post on dark chocolate mousse, made with - wait for it - avocado! Three simple ingredients: avocado, cocoa powder, and honey. Blend. Savor. (Repeat?) It was seriously delicious. Terry was a bit skeptical, but his "chocolate guac" comment didn't deter me from licking my bowl clean. I'd say it was certainly a creative way to squeeze in one more veggie at the end of the day!
Hope you had a fantastic Wednesday!
What's the strangest dessert you've ever had? Any surprising ingredients?
