Ohmygerrrrrd. Jet lag is real. I’ve been waking up at 2 or 3am every morning the past few nights, ever since I got back from France, and it’s so damn annoying. You can’t do anything at 3am when your husband is still asleep and you live in a small house. That would just be rude. So instead I just sit there, in hopes of falling back asleep. The struggle is real.
Anywho, today is a little different here on the blog because I’m bringing back the What I Ate in a Day section of my Weekly Workouts. I was very hesitant to do this and I still am, for a couple reasons:
- I don’t track my food so I often don’t even remember everything I ate.
- I am always judged that I eat too little or too much.
- I feel like I have to explain what I ate and why, and that seems super unhealthy to me.
- People play the comparison game which is silly since my diet has nothing to do with theirs.
I don’t want posts like this to ever make someone feel insecure or get them into an unhealthy state, but I do know that posts like this also give people ideas of what to make for meals at home. I’ve felt pretty torn about all of it so I’ve just decided to do posts like this one maybe once a month. But I’d like to emphasize something –
- My diet has nothing to do with you. Because our bodies are completely different. Our needs are different, our genetics are different, and our daily activity/resting metabolic rate is different. Just because I eat a certain portion size doesn’t mean you should. YOU need to learn to listen to your body and what it is asking for. Stop comparing or worrying that your portion sizes are too small or too big. Just eat what YOUR body needs and wants. Getting to know your own body is what will lead you to longterm, healthy lifestyle and bodyweight.
I don’t count macros or calories or obsess about every snack I have along the way. I just try to listen to my body, eat until I’m satisfied but not overly full, and stay away from sugar and alcohol as much as possible. Not all of those things happen all the time, but I try my best most days! And if you ever need more meal ideas, be sure to check out these four posts –

What I Ate in a Day:
Once I woke up, I started my day off how I always do – with coffee at 6am. I made a hot cup of nespresso with a tablespoon or so of heavy cream, some liquid stevia and a heaping tablespoon of collagen.
Before my 8:30am boxing class, I had 1/2 peanut butter Perfect Foods Bar.
After my workout, I had brunch around 10:30am – Butcherbox pork sausage then I made a cauliflower rice mixture with raisins, bell pepper, green onions, parsley, mint, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Around 3:30pm, I had a snack which was a small bowl full of the cauliflower rice mixture and some sliced pickles.
For dinner around 6pm, I had a Pabellon arepa at Quiero Arepas – masa corn cake, beef, beans, plantains, mozzarella, and guascaca!
