This week marks the end of a 60 day fitness challenge I’ve been doing with some friends.
We all came up with our own goals for the challenge since everyone is in such different places physically and time-wise. My goals included healthy eating, mindful snacking, and a commitment to exercise. I mostly wanted to improve my overall fitness and prevent people from thinking I was pregnant again (I’m not). I’ve been pretty happy with the results of the last two months (sorry, you’re not getting a before and after photo). I’ve dropped a few pounds and felt my physical fitness improve.
One of the hardest day to day things about eating healthy is knowing what exactly to eat. I believe in the 80/20 rule, eating super healthy 80 percent of the time and not worrying too much about the other 20. I try hard to avoid artificial sweeteners and other ingredients, dyes, and high fructose corn syrup. Still, I don’t think you need to completely swear off certain foods or live a life of bland eating in order to be healthy or lose weight.
This spinach and egg pizza is what I would consider a healthy compromise. If you’re avoiding carbs pizza is never the answer, but otherwise this is great. A wheat crust is topped with a veggie packed spread and given a unique protein punch by cooking eggs on top.
