Wednesday, November 20

On the photos below you can see the food that we have ate lately.
If you remember from this post here I promised myself to eat more healthy in direction of losing extra kilos, that stayed after my pregnancy with Zack.

So what happend last week?
I kept promise and I follow the rule number one (from the last post): buying just healthy products - fish, vegetable, fruits, whole grain bread, ... no junk food, no sugar!
The only "sweet" thing I bought was 70% dark chocolate. 
Why was this rule good? It wasn't good, it was great!
When you craving at 22h in the evening some sweets, you just don't eat them, because you don't have them. 
When you are tired/busy/lazy or all together and you want to eat junk food (chips, salty crackers, donuts, biscuits,..) just to eat something, you don't, because again, you don't have them. 
Cool, right? Read on... When you are thirsty and you want to drink Coca or some other sweet juice (just to replace the sweets that you don't have), you don't, because... of course, you don't have it!
Believe me, this make change - because instead of eating sweets, I ate apple or banana, instead of eating junk food, I ate a salad... and so on.

Rule number two was: make it tasty and attractive! 
Admit that automatically when you imagine healthy food you think of something that taste boring, like something that it's just not so funny to eat. Broccoli, Salad, Fish, Seeds, ... No go, right?
But that's just not true... Healthy food can be really tasty and you really can get so use to it that it can became your everyday meal. All you need is just a little bit of imagination and figure it out what works for you! 
I, just like you, didn't have idea what to cook, how to prepare tasty healthy food, so I went on Instagram and type "healthy food" and got a dozens of great ideas! Do it!

However stupid it sounds but food to me, just has to look good... it has to attract me to have a lust to eat it.. (it must have connection with my love for esthetic, lol) and with colorful vegetable and fruit is so easy to do that. Try it!

If you can't resist, make a compromise - rule number three
It's just not so easy to change your habits in one day and it would be stupid to do so... because it would take the hell of a lot of discipline to make it work. 
So, I allowed myself a day in a week (Sunday) when I can eat what I want - of course I am not gonna just sit on the floor in the kitchen, hidden behind the table and eating Nutella with the spoon, but yes I will eat pizza if I crave it all week or I am gonna eat Igor's pancakes if he will be so nice, to make them for me, lol.
At the same time making compromises means also that if I really crave something sweet, I am gonna try to find healthy solution.
Like we did the other night... we both, Igor and me, crave so much some sweets that I made them - bananas and mandarins dipped in dark chocolate. And god knows, we smashed them in a minute! :)

The rule for this week will be hydration - my big problem.

  7. Joj kako ovo sve super izgleda! Trebala si prije naslova staviti "warning" i da nije za čitanje kasno navečer ili dok si na poslu i ručak ti je za jedno tri sata.. :D

    Imaš moj glas za više ovakvih postova, a ful me zanima kako ćeš ti riješiti ovaj idući problem, to što piješ premalo vode. Ja sam užasna po tom pitanju, pa sada svaki put kada mi dođe da jedem od dosade uzmem radije čašu vode (pokušavam srediti dvije muhe jednim udarcem). Pomaka ima, ali nije to još uvijek onoliko koliko bi trebala popiti.

  12. Ful dobre ideje, meni že malo zmanjkuje navdiha za zdrava kosila in večerje, moram malo bolj eksperimentirat. :)

  13. Još, još. Još ovakvih postova! Znači sad bih najradije sjela pred hladnjak i potamanila pola toga unutra koliko su mi ove slike otvorile apetit. :D
    P.S. blago tebi kada možeš jesti banane. Ja ih obožavam, ali mi nikako ne koriste, previše energije ulazi u tijelo uz posao u kojem se uglavnom sjedi. Kod mene ti je banana + banana = novi kg više. Ali zato su mandarine, posebno one prve obavezne!
