Happy Monday, y’all! I’m back! Again. It has only been since April since my last post, so I’m sure you haven’t missed me too much.
Anyway, I was still “indulging” as of yesterday. I have to be done with this madness. I’ve put some weight back on, but more importantly, some of the symptoms of my autoimmune disease (AI) have worsened. I can tell myself that 90% of what I eat is AIP compliant, and it probably is. It’s the 10% that isn’t that causes problems. It’d be different if a small indulgence was the exception and not the norm. So, back to it I go. Fully. Let’s drop that nasty 10% down to maybe 2%, shall we?
Now, I’m not beating myself up about this. I simply won’t. I’ll just readjust and handle my business (think Ludacris – biz-NASSS!)
I did my batch cooking, like normal, yesterday. I packed all of my food for the day, as usual. I am vowing to drink more water. Water fills me up, so by default, I will eat less. I do have healthy snacks though. I am in control of what I put in my mouth. I just have to have better control. AIP has been the BEST thing for me overall!
Chicken Avocado Salad
Turkey Spinach and Onion Meatballs
Batch cooking has contributed greatly to my success with AIP. I actually started batch cooking before I went AIP because it helped with healthier meals throughout the week. Below is my food plan for my work day:
Breakfast = smoothie (avocado, banana, protein, organic honey, carrot juice, water, spinach)
Snack = a few plantain crackers
Lunch = turkey meatballs and kale
Snack = baby carrots
Now, if I’m feeling like I need to be eating something when I really don’t, I have extra plantain crackers, carrots and a small chuck of roasted chicken to get by. Dinner is TBD, but I’m thinking I’ll have Cabbage Stuff.
I’m also vowing to write more. As stated in April, writing helps keep me accountable. And writing may just help me get things off my chest. Being healthy and fit isn’t always the easiest thing to do. Everyone has their challenges and battles and conditions. It takes time, and most people, aren’t patient.
