As far as myself, I'm doing good sticking to my "meal plan" even though its not really a strict plan- more so sticking to calorie and macro goals. I will admit I'm feeling like I have a fair amount of work to do before I put on a bathing suit! It's funny how alcohol works in your body... When I came back from my trip on Sunday I actually didn't feel too bad. You'll see in my "before" photos I still have a decent amount of leanness and don't look like I have too too much work to do. Well, alcohol likes to dehydrate you which gives you a false sense of "all this food and alcohol I've been having hasn't done too much damage" syndrome. HOWEVER, once you start rehydrating your body doesn't trust you anymore so it starts holding on to water like crazy. That on top of that wonderful time of the month coming up and I'm feeling that puffiness again. That's okay though, it's well deserved and I know I'll bounce back here shortly :)
Here are a few of my eats from yesterday!
M1- the usual 4-5 oz yams scrambled up with egg whites and veggies
M2- green protein shake and a fun little concoction I threw together of yams and Greek yogurt with cinnamon and Stevia. Super yum.
M3- egg white muffins and almonds. This time I just left my veggies chunky instead of blending them up.
M4- taco seasoned turkey with lettuce, avocado and hot sauce.
M5-(no pic) grilled chicken with Brussel sprouts and green beans.
M6- James Wilson's Amazeballs which were pretty much Jamie Eason turkey muffins with an Italian twist.
These were super good but I had a serious issue. I made half with cottage cheese in the middle and half with skim mozzarella cheese. Wellll much to my surprise once they were cooked they looked exactly the same! So, what did I do? I made my best educated guess and went with it.
I was wrong.
