I've written a few "rant" posts about being frustrated with others views about living a healthy lifestyle, and after this weekend, I think I've come full circle from those times and it feels pretty awesome. After a couple years, I feel like not only have friends and family accepted and realized this is me, and it's not just a phase I'm going through, but I've learned to deal with those few that still don't get it in a much better way.
I'm finally okay with saying no thank you to a drink, or a cupcake and not feeling like I have to explain or defend myself and it's pretty awesome. There aren't many times that I'm super duper strict to the point where I alter my schedule or really freak out when I don't eat every 3 hours on the dot. BUT when I have a goal in mind, I'm going to do everything the exact right way so that when that day comes and goes I can say I did everything I possibly could to achieve my goal. I'm not afraid to explain this to anyone who asks, but it is SO nice knowing I don't have to.
We had a fun weekend with lots of birthday parties and of course temptations everywhere, but I used my no thank you skills and made it out just fine :)
Then came Sunday and we allll know what that means. Grilled chicken, turkey fajitas, salmon, and bison burgers are on the menu this week as far as protein goes.
The veggie stack: oven roasted broccoli, zucchini, asparagus, and green beans.
As far as my nutrition plans this week, they're staying pretty much the same. I'm at about 1500 calories a day, 30-40-30 macros. I hope I won't have to drop very much lower than this to get my abs to pop a little more, but we'll see. I'm officially 4 weeks away, so I'll re-evaluate after this week!
Have a great week!
