#50DaysFit Day 34 Update!

I initially wrote this really detailed and personal post on my progress so far with my #50DaysFit challenge. However, my computer ate it and won’t give it back so I’ll have to give you a brief synopsis of what the original post said. Initially I wanted to update every five days, however when the time came I took a look at my fitness journal and felt it was pretty darn boring so I thought I would do round-up style post like this.

I have spent the last seven or so years without a healthy breakfast routine so getting one in place has been a bit of a struggle. That being said, my favorite options are eggs (when I have time), smoothies, Quaker’s New Granola Warm & Crunchy line (which I enjoy with yogurt), and Cascadian Farm’s New Protein Bar’s (I like the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip one’s). I’m still on the lookout for new recipes, I get bored pretty easily and love to try new things – so if you know of a good breakfast recipe or item, let me know!

Option 3

I recently started premaking lunches – I feel like if I don’t know what I’ll be eating then I will choose something that’s fast, which tends to be unhealthy. I pinned this Grilled Chicken Veggie Bowls recipe from Picky Palate ages ago and was super excited about making it myself. It turned out really well, although I omitted the asparagus and quinoa (I didn’t have any on hand at the time). The most surprising thing I’ve learned about pre-made lunches is that personally, it gives me the sense that I have more time in the day to do other things. I don’t have to take the time to decide on, make or buy lunch – I just pop it in the microwave for 2 minutes and keep on working.


As for working out, I haven’t had the chance to exercise every single day as I had hoped. However, I have been incorporating health-minded activities into my life on a daily basis – which is the goal of #50DaysFit, so I don’t feel bad about it at all. I guess the real change so far is that I no longer feel like getting fit is impossible – and while it’s not official, I’m definitely thinking of challenging myself further with another fitness challenge, but more on that next time!
