Food, food, food...love it! I changed my eating habits after the birth of my second daughter and really believe that with running and cleaner eating, I was able to shed the baby weight much more quickly than the first time around. Or maybe I was able to lose weight faster because I had 2 kids to chase around, instead of 1. Most days, I will prepare oatmeal (OIAJ, OOIAJ, or hot off the stove), greek yogurt (Chobani) with granola (homemade or Bear Naked), 1 egg with bagel thin, for breakfast. Breakfast will keep me full until lunchtime which is usually around 11 AM or 11:30 AM for me. I have to eat when I can because the girls would rather me play with them or hold them instead of eat. Lunch sometimes consists of last night's leftovers or a salad with chopped ham, boiled egg, cukes, tomatoes, and a few drops of salad dressing. About 2-3 hours later, it's snack time for me and my 2 year old. She will have hummus, while I may have an apple with almond butter (homemade or pre-bought), cheese with olives (if I want something savory), crackers, a few pieces of dark chocolate, or a SODA! Dinner always includes a protein, two veggies and a carb. Last night, I made hamburgers and creamed spinach. Delish! And before bed, I may have a piece of banana bread with peanut butter. I seem to eat quite often throughout the day. Although I like to travel, I get anxious because I don't drink as much water or have as many healthy eats to choose from.
