As we try to maintain the weight we lose and stay on course with our weight loss program I would like to share with you my day today. Today is/was a good day. I can not say every day is this good in relation to keeping good habits but this is what I strive for. I woke up about 5:30 and had a glass of water. Shook the cobwebs out of my head and about 6:00 I went to the fridge, got an apple, tomato, carrot, and a clove of garlic, along with one of the Keto diet pills that I use, and put them in the juicer to jump-start my day. I did the same for my wife. I always have a glass of water after I drink my morning juice. Many people start with coffee, I start with fresh fruit and vegetable juice. Ok before breakfast I had 2 glasses of water and fresh fruit and vegetable juice
Breakfast for me today was a 2 egg omelet. I would call it a vegetarian omelet but I had a little sharp cheddar cheese added in. Themelet included spinach, green and red peppers, and cheese. For seasoning, I had white pepper and Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy Blend. My wife had the same except she had a 1 egg omelet and she prefers Mrs. dash Southwest Chipotle instead of the extra spicy. Her omelet is much spicier. As always I drank a glass of water after my meal. (Note: water is needed for many health reasons and we should drink 8 glasses a day or more, but for me, it helps me feel full so can be satisfied with a vegetarian omelet as a meal.) Many times when I do not have time to fix breakfast I will have an Advocare Meal Replacement Shake. I have them as needed versus make them my regular breakfast. It only takes me 10 minutes to make my breakfast and another 10 minutes to eat it. By 7:30 I have had a morning juice 3 glasses of water and breakfast. About 8:00 I had an Advocare Spark Energy Drink (just like having another glass of water) and I began my cardio workout. I did 50 minutes on the elliptical exercise machine. Took a quick shower and was at work by 9:15. By the way, work is in my home office.
I know everyone can not do this but, because I work mostly from home I take a break every hour or so and do push-ups. I try to do 3 sets of 20 three times a day.
Mid Morning Snack
Today, I had a banana and cup of Puer Tea. I drink my tea straight, no sugar, honey lemon, etc. It is an acquired taste. It is the best way to drink your tea. but that was the mid-morning snack.
About noon I made a nice salad. Today we had spinach (our staple not iceberg lettuce) shredded cabbage and shredded carrots, green and red peppers, red and white onions, and tomatoes. I like a little sweet and spicy as well. So I added a little fresh (not canned) pineapple and raisins then spiced it up with my Mrs. Dash favorite Extra Spicy seasoning. I had a few crushed peanuts and topped lightly with a Red Wine Vinaigrette. Guess what? I had a glass of water after I ate.
No snack this afternoon. I just had another Advocare Spark Energy Drink and did my 3 sets of 20. Now you may think that the Advocare Spark Energy Drink is like a Red Bull or something, but that is not true at all. The Advocare Spark Energy Drink is a natural nutritional vitamin supplement that also gives you a boost of energy. Like drinking coffee but all-natural and no caffeine or sugar.
Today we had my own pasta concoction. 100% Whole Wheat Spaghetti, sliced tomatoes, red, green, and yellow peppers, fried in olive oil with grilled chicken and seasoned to taste. I try to eat off of a small plate so I am not tempted to eat too much. Water chaser and dinner was a wrap. Pun not intended today. 6:00 pm. Off to Church. Bible Study tonight. This is my weight loss program and today I had a good day.
