Hi hi hi!
I know that this post is going up late, but I promise I have a good excuse. This past Tuesday (when I usually work on my What I Eat) was my mommy’s birthday – so of course I had to spend time with my family. I guess you can say, it was a cheat day, however I don’t think I did that horribly. Continue reading “[Lifestyle] Keto Diet – What I Eat In A Day – What’s In Janellie’s Belly”
Hi hi hi!
THIS IS A PROCLAMATION THAT I WILL GET BETTER AT DOCUMENTING MY MEALS! Now that that’s out of the way, welcome back to another What’s In Janellie’s Belly! Let’s begin with the usual updates.
If you are subscribed to me on YouTube (youtube.com/msluvly1234) you will see an updated video regarding motivation. I wanted to start doing weekly updates on my channel as well because I feel like this whole health journey is something that a lot of people can relate with. I hope you head over to my channel and decide to check out the video – it is longer than a lot of my other recent videos, but I had a lot of things I wanted to say and I hope that it helps you on your journey and we can continue to support each other.
This past week, I have been honestly dealing with a lot of dookie psychologically. I have had a difficult time sleeping and I would wake up at like 2 or 3 in the morning just thinking about everything that needs to be done the next day or just worrying about all the paperwork and things I need to do for my condo. I just have a lot on my mind and it doesn’t help that my office is having corporate visitors the next couple of weeks (even more stress)! In order to at least pretend to be a functional human being during the day, I opted to not go to the gym in the morning this whole week and by the time I got home I would be so tired (from not being able to sleep) that I would just eat, shower and sleep. There were even some days that I just felt so overwhelmed that I would skip lunch and not eat anything till dinner!
Overall it was just a tough week for me.
I’m currently doing a lot better this week, so let’s jump into the food! Continue reading “What’s In Janellie’s Belly | What I Ate Wednesday”

Hi hi hi!
Welcome to another post for, “What’s In Janellie’s Belly?” I hope you’ve had an amazing start to 2017 and if not, guess what, you have 361 days that are still unwritten! Anyhow, before we dive into the actual post, let me open up a little as to why I decided to track what I’m eating.
One of my goals every year is to lose weight, but I have never been successful and I think it’s mainly because I just lose motivation a couple weeks into my “lifestyle change.” I have tried so many different tactics to get me to actually change my lifestyle, but nothing ever seems to work. So this year, I started making a change, well, not really a change, more like an addition. Instead of constantly focusing on portion sizes, calories, etc. I decided to track what I eat everyday and any physical activity I do, including steps. This way I have to be accountable for everything that I am putting into my body. Originally, I tried doing this by tracking my caloric intake, but it became all about the numbers and I was hungry so often! It sucked and so I stopped.
I like this method more because it’s not about the numbers, it’s about what I am choosing to put in my body. When I look back on the weeks I can see where I may have gone wrong – maybe I shouldn’t have eaten the cookie, maybe I shouldn’t have had the Starbucks drink, etc. I also figured that eventually when I’m ready to make a dietary change, I can go in and see where I’m taking in the most caloric intake or where I can switch in a healthier option.
I started tracking my diet back in December and it took me a little bit to get into the habit of filling out my planner everyday, but now I look forward to it. Though I am not too excited about jotting down all the food I consume, I am excited to jot down the exercise/any activity I do.
Anyhow, with that extremely long explanation out of the way, let’s get into the actual post! Continue reading “What’s In Janellie’s Belly? | What I Ate Wednesday”
