Post Shoot Food Prep

I did it! Shoot number 2 is in the books! Feels so good to have achieved that goal, I felt like I walked out of the gym yesterday and a huge weight was lifted from my shoulders and a big check mark was added to my bucket list. It was an amazing day all around and I'm hoping to get my recap of it up tomorrow or Wednesday. Until then, here's what I prepped last night for this week: 

Left to right: Sweet potato pancakes, brown rice noodle lasagna (for B), baked green beans and asparagus, salsa chicken, broccoli egg white muffins (recipe to come), and yams. 

Nothing too crazy huh? Well, there are two reasons for that. Reason 1 is since I've been in "diet mode" for the past 2-3 weeks, I can't jump right back in to eating "normally". My body would produce tons of fat stores if I jumped that quickly. So instead, just as I eased in to photo shoot prep, I have to ease back out of it. This week I'm bumping my calories up slightly but I'm going to stick to mainly yams for my carbs. Reason 2 is because I leave for Vegas on Friday for Monika's bachelorette party! We have lots of pool time in our near future so I want to keep it tight!

 Workouts this week will be typical James Wilson workouts- Today was leg day and I felt great after my huge dinner last night. I thought for sure all the sodium would fog my ab definition, but much to my surprise my core wasn't looking too bad this morning :) Have a great week everyone! 


  1. Congrats on getting the photo shoot done!! I bet the photos will be amazing :)

    Can you give me the recipe for the sweet potato pancakes? I bought all the ingredients this weekend so I could put them in my food prep 'to do' yesterday, but I couldnt find the recipe on your page. Or can someone reading this email it to me?


    1. 6 egg whites, 3 oz of yams (cooked), cinnamon, Stevia

  2. When you narrowed your diet in the final days leading up to the photo shoot (and increased your cardio), were you hungry or were your cals high enough to keep you satiated? Can't wait to read all about it in your next post, congratulations!

  3. Congrats :)Cant wait to see shoot pics

  4. those broccoli egg white muffins look sgreat. Nice job.

  5. Damn, I wish my legs looked like that!

  6. hey, when you say "yams" are you meaning literally a yam or are we talking sweet potatoes? I know they are different things, but we often use the terms interchangeably. Just checking before making the pancakes.

  7. Congrats on the photo shoot! Looking forward to seeing the pics and hearing about your next fitness goal. Thanks for sharing your journey!
