“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well”
For the past seven days I have made a HUGE effort to eat healthy. I have given up simple carbs one of which is chocolate. Those who know me know that I am a chocoholic. I used to have at least a miniature piece of chocolate a day. It’s interesting that I no longer miss it. However, I know that one bite will be all it takes to get me hooked again and to completely ruin my new healthy eating habits. I replaced many simple carbs, that in retrospect composed 80% of my daily intake, with protein. I no longer eat white bread, rice, beans, or cereal. The hardest to give up, which was surprising to me, was bread. I always thought giving up chocolate would be harder, but I guess my body was used to eating bread for breakfast for the past 26 years and the lack of it makes me feel a bit anxious at times. At which point I either have a slice of whole wheat , an apple or black coffee. The most motivating aspect of all this is that my tummy, which has never really been very hard, is suddenly hardening! I’m also working out at least an hour a day, 5 days a week but I had done this in the past and yet my abs would never show because of my diet. I’m hoping that in the next photo shoot I’ll be able to notice the difference :).
Speaking of photo shoots, this one was shot near one of NYC’s many park playgrounds. It’s a very casual outfit with a jean skirt, floral top and the messenger bag. I added the heels to give it a bit of elegance but if you’re just headed to the supermarket you can definitely add a pair of flip flops, or as my australian cousin referred to them recently thongs. Funny side note, flip-flops in Australia are called thongs. My cousin and I were having a conversation about comfortable footwear and suddenly she said I just wear thongs. This completely threw me off as in my head I’m thinking, thongs are not always comfortable and how did we go from talking about shoes to her wearing thongs. Eventually we figured it out and had a good laugh :).
Have a great day and come back soon!
