30 Day Challenge | Pamela: Day 19 - Let's Talk Food For a Minute

February 06, 2014 2 min read

Since yesterday was the Superbowl I decided to swap my workout and rest days, so even though it is technically day 19 of the challenge, I did the day 18 workout. The other day when one of my daily logs for the 30 day challenge went live, there were several people who took exception to what I was eating, stating that my food log was too sparse, that I wasn’t eating enough, that I was a bad example, and that somehow I wasn’t a real person based on what I ate for the day. The not a real person was my favorite comment by far… I feel pretty real, but who knows, I could be a total fake. I'll discuss this more in the food section, so stay tuned.

The workout

Um... can I just say that I love Rita's workouts? I really really do. They're the perfect blend of HIIT and traditional strength training. Find the workout video along with a workout breakdown and warm-up/cool down videos for day 18 here.

Modifications

Today I didn't make any modifications for my back injury :) I love being able to say this. I feel like my back is getting stronger and stronger every day. Day 18

Food log

If you pay close attention to my food log you'll notice that I don't put any measurements or calories. There's a reason for this.... I don't measure my food or count my calories. I eat until I am full. So, when you see that I ate a kale salad for lunch, that salad was as big as my head and included a ton of raisins, Parmesan cheese, and pecans... when I'm done, I'm literally stuffed! Some of the commentators on my food intake, that I mentioned above, were  especially outraged that I don't eat breakfast. Opinions regarding what food, how much a person should eat, and when they should eat it are a dime a dozen. Not even certified nutritionists completely agree on proper nutrition. My approach to nutrition is to simply listen to my body. If I'm not hungry, then I'm not going to eat. I'm not a believer in stuffing food into your mouth just because it's "time" to eat. So, here's the point of all this. Your body knows best. Listen to it. Don't let others tell you that you need to eat more or less, or a certain number of meals or calories. Do what feels right for you. As long as you stick to real foods, and avoid the foods you know aren't good for you, you'll be just fine. Eat right, workout, and make these two things a daily habit. Whew! Off my soapbox now and on to my food log!
