A #transformationtuesday because I haven't done one in a while and the picture on the left came up on my Timehop from three years ago... I can't get over how much of a bobble head I look (and the ratchet extentions) I've probably gained about 8-10kg since then (I'm not really sure I haven't weighed myself in a while) but the difference between the left, during a trip to London with my mum, and this past weekend when she came to visit me is immense. 3 years ago every morsel I put into my mouth was met with stress and each meal fraught with anxiety, not just on my end but I think it affected my mum's trip too which saddens me no end. I was still having treats but the mindset on consumption was definitely not ideal. Plus I knew as soon as I'd get back I could not each much for a few days and it would be fine... you can see my face has filled out and despite what the resting bitch face of the photo on the right may suggest, I am much happier now! Food and overtraining can still be an issue but it's something I tackle everyday and I'm in so much more of a better place than then #gainingweightiscool but it's not just cool it's fucking necessary if you wanna have an actual life and not half of one.
Despite its appearance it tastes better than it looks. As I was dumping things in I thought it would for sure be awful. Appearances can be deceiving!
Unsweetened almond milk
4 TBS hemp protein powder
1/2 a banana
Handful of power greens
5 ice cubes Drank this right after my #bbg Week 6 Legs and Cardio (I am behind a workout from last week).
Simple meals are where it's at !! Especially for breakfast when your time may be limited. Breakfast is such an important meal, so this was always a staple for me during the summer when I would have to be at work early
