What I Ate Wednesday

Wednesday already! Holy moly. Time really does fly when you're having fun, and when you're busy. Between starting a new job and starting a new workout plan this week has been full of fun new adventures and I'm actually really surprised to say that for once I am loving change! Finally six months later I'm living up to my new years resolution of stepping out of my comfort zone... I should do this more often! ;)


This WIAW is a little different than past posts because I can't really share everything I ate. Out of respect for James and his program, I don't want to divulge all of the "secrets" to his nutrition plan. So, you'll notice I don't have my PWO meal posted because there is a little trick that James has, so you'll have to join me on his plan to find out what that is! 



M1- 1 whole egg and 3 egg whites scrambled with veggies and 2 pieces of Ezekiel cinnamon toast
M2- 1/2 cup cottage cheese mixed with 1/2 cup oats, dash of almond milk, cinnamon and Truvia and 1 oz almonds
M3- Zucchini turkey burger with 1/2 a raw zucchini and 2 tbsp hummus
M4- Salsa chicken on a bed of spinach
M5- Clean eating beef and broccoli

I've upped my carbs a bit and I actually need to add carbs into one more meal, but I didn't want to put my body on carb overload too quick, so I'm easing in to it. I've been following more of a 30-40-30 split so most of my carbs have been pre and post workout,  so it's a little weird to be eating all these carbs throughout the day.... but a good weird!

    1. I tend to follow 40-40-20 when I'm trying to build muscle, so over the summer to stay lean I dropped my carbs a bit.

  4. Hi Little B,
    I love your blog! I read it daily. You probably don't remember but I emailed you a month or so about dairy..I struggle with it. But thanks to your email I am a lactaid loving dairy eating fool! Anyway my husband is in the military and a bunch of female soldiers needed help with eating so I made a small blog that actually has gotten 750 hits in four days! Crazy huh? Anyway I have a link to your blog and the feedback is in, they love you!!! Keep it up! My blog is www.farrcleanerlife.blogspot.com Thanks for writing!

  5. Hey Little B! Im finally getting back seriously into my fitness routine. I work full time and had a baby 8 months ago. I lost alot of my muscle tone, but am thinner now than i was before i got pregnant. I guess im in that skinny fat zone. =( Would you recommend Livefit or James'program for me to follow. The thought of not doing cardio for 4 weeks doesnt seem like a good idea for me at this moment. I would like to burn off whatever little fat i have left, but, build more muscle. Any thoughts would be appreciated!! Thank you!!

    1. I'm still really new to James' program but I really like it so far! It's hard to choose between the two, but I think you will burn more fat in the beginning stages of James' program while the fat burning comes more toward the end of Jamies.

  7. I started James' program last week, and im in week 2 now... and can full say the change in calories and carbs is the biggest adjustment, but like you said, it's in a good way. :) Good luck on the program, I'm loving it so far!

  9. I've never heard of cottage cheese mixed with oats. Interesting ;) I wish I could up my carbs..I'm such a sucker for carbs!

  10. When you make the cottage cheese and oat mixture, are you cooking the oats first or using them raw? What type of oats are you using? I have steel cut at home. Thanks!!
