I contemplated whether or not I should even do a What I ate Wednesday post because, well, my food isn't too exciting lately. I've cut out a lot of carbs and cut down my calories too so I apologize for the lameness. Fun food and recipes will return after May 5th.
I've had lots and lots of emails about my pre-shoot plan what I'm eating, when etc. etc. so here you go:
M1: 5 egg whites with spinach, onions, and jalapenos and 1/3 cup oats made with 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk, cinnamon, and 1 packet of Truvia.
M2: (PWO)- Protein shake made with 1/3 cup oats, 1 scoop protein powder, 3 capsules of glutamine, 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk, and cinnamon.
M3: Egg white and veggies muffins (these are something I threw together and they are AWESOME! I'll definitely be keeping them around long after my shoot is over. ) Made with 4 egg whites a couple handfuls of mixed raw veggies, pepper, and garlic powder. Throw it all in a food processor then into muffin tins for 25 minutes at 350.
M4: Buffalo chicken salad with celery and grape tomatoes.
M5: Grilled chicken and asparagus
M6: Grilled chicken and asparagus with 1/4 grilled avocado (not pictured)
M7: Casein Pudding (not pictured) I'll be giving this up and switching to egg whites starting next week.
Side note: Every single one of my meals had a green veggie in it. Go me!
Nothing too exciting but do you know what is exciting? Waking up every morning and seeing changes in my body! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE being able to eat 2000+ calories a day and lift heavy, but when you are leaning out and start to see small changes every single day... it is so motivating.
I started Phase 3 of Jamie Easons LiveFit trainer this week. Originally I didn't plan to do the whole phase, just maybe a week or two but I've changed my mind and I'm just going to suck it up and do the whole thing. This means carb cycling starts next week and in case you were wondering, no, I'm not excited about it! It will all be worth it in the end. [That was me talking to myself]
Anyone else trying to lean out for something special? or maybe just for summertime?
