Hiiiii there W-e-d-n-e-s-d-a-y January 15 already!!! Weren’t we celebrating New Year’s yesterday?
Today I wanted to share with you a glimpse at my mostly “healthy” everyday routine. I work part-time at a non-profit organization, and I’m studying my Master’s Degree. I did part at campus and I’m doing part online. It takes a looot of hard work to finish the online part, but I’m trying my best.
Food: If you wonder what I eat I could show you this picture of yesterday’s lunch:
Boiled sweet potato, pumpkin and spicy tofu over a bed of spinach with water. I basically eat sweet potato, and anything similar on an everyday basis. I love them more than any other type of food. You won’t see much rice or pasta here. I try to stay on the clean eating as much as possible, but you could find me eating a frozen yogurt, chips or a piece of brownie too Everything in balance!
(Those are recycled photos). Every now and then I’ll do some “pancakes” or some scramble eggs. There is only one thing that HAS to be on my everyday breakfast: bananas! If I don’t eat them, my breakfast isn’t complete. Keep in mind that I try to stay on the plant-based diet as much as possible, but I don’t do it 100% of times. My eating is mostly healthy because I love chocolate, and any form of sweets, as well as chips!
Workouts: I try to do a form of cardio with a strength training session almost everyday. Some days I’ll only do cardio, some others strength training. For example, yesterday I did a 40 minutes cardio interval at the treadmill, followed by an abs routine, and finished it with foam rolling.
After taking my certification to become a personal trainer I learned a lot about muscles, health and how to exercise properly. I apply this knowledge with my workouts in every sense. As I have already mentioned, I have arthritis, so I need to exercise to stay healthy, but I need to do it correctly to avoid injuries.
However, when I’m not in the mood, I may skip a workout and stay on the couch. I have a hard time waking up early to workout! I’m more a workout in the afternoon-night kind of person But exercising is definitively an important part of my life.
I love to eat clean and I love to exercise. I told you yesterday that I believe that it takes commitment and discipline to achieve a healthy lifestyle.
As you can see I’m mostly healthy, but not 100%! Balance is the key
Now go ahead and tell me your mostly healthy routine!
Have a great Wednesday!
