Sunday January 27 

12 pm

5pm MY FIRST TIME AT CHIPOTLE!!!! I shared this with Junior so I had about half, maybe a little less than half of it. It was sooooo good but I was still hungry haha

730pm - I didn't really like this I just ate the 4-5 chicken pieces (smh) and threw out the rest

That was my week!!! Looking back: I think I made healthier choices this week but I think at times I wasn't eating enough. Especially since I started going to the gym this week, it is very important for me to properly fuel my body. I'm going to try to keep to an eating schedule in the future. I did better this last week but there were still days where my eating times got a little cooky and that messed up my breakfast - lunch - snack - dinner flow. 

Again I was so hungry during the night since I do stay up late. I'm going to stock up on more fruits so that if I'm very hungry around 9pm or even 10pm I can grab an apple or some strawberries, etc. I know you're "not supposed" to eat after 7pm but I do not want to be toooo strict and set myself up for failure. I want to ease into a HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE, not just an immediate diet to lose weight. I think that having more fruits handy as late night snacks will help me calm my hunger at night and won't be too damaging to my hard work during the day. Hey, it's always better than a big piece of chocolate cake. 

Let me know if this helped anyone. How are you girls doing with your personal goals? As always, wishing u the best of luck and sending lots of love!
