What I Ate Wednesday & Current Macros

Wednesday, weee! Today is my rest day which means I'm probably going to be ravenous (weird how that works). Actually, to be honest my appetite has been out of this world lately- I'm guessing because of the higher calorie burns at the gym. Don't get me wrong, I'm totally okay with that but sometimes when I'm packing my meals in the morning I forget that I'm going to be extra hungry! I'm not really tracking my calories right now, but I would guess I'm around 1600 and 30/40/30. I seem to be doing well here but my dumb little abs are still hiding. If I'm not seeing progress at the end of this week I might drop my carbs just a touch, but leave my calories the same which means I'll bump my fats up just a little. This typically works pretty well for me, but to be honest I'd rather leave things the way they are. We'll see I guess! 


Meal 1-  2 Banana muffins and 1/2 a protein shake. Yes, last weeks photo- 5am is early! 
Meal 2- 4 egg whites, zucchini, onion, and oats with berries and almond milk. 
Meal 3- Lactaid cottage cheese and peanut butter 
Meal 4- Chicken, veggies, and brown rice with sriracha 
Meal 5- Chicken, veggie, and egg white scramble with avocado
Meal 6- Bison burger and brussel sprouts 
I also had 1/2 scoop of casein before bed!

  3. If your burns are bigger why not eat more?! I always do...is that bumping it up too quickly do you think!?

  4. How do you cook your brussel sprouts? I have always found them quite unappealing but perhaps I was just cooking them wrong??

    1. Olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder then bake them at 400 until they start to brown.

      I find them quite unappealing too. (our little secret :) )

  5. Looks so good. Do you cook your oats with the almond milk or do you just let raw oats soak in the almond milk? I wonder if this way of eating is appropriate for a NON body builder?
    Also, how old are u? Just curious :)

    1. I do both- sometimes I do overnight oats where i let them soak, and sometimes I'll cook them in the microwave.

      And I'm not sure I would consider myself a bodybuilder... :)

      I'm 25

    1. Yes, definitely! In order to properly fuel your body for an intense workout you really need to get in some protein and carbs. I usually eat around 5am and then I'm at the gym at 6. But if 30 minutes works for you, I think that's fine!

  8. With your macros at 30/40/30, is 30 carb and fats, 40 protein? Trying to lean out and burn the fat as well. Thanks lady!

  9. How do you figure out your macros?

  10. I looked at your recipe for banana protein bread and saw that it calls for 6-8 packets of Truvia I think. If using Kal Stevia how much would I use?
