Okay I have 2 confessions to make. Confession 1: I have not been tracking my macros. Confession 2: I ate egg whites at 3 of my 5 meals yesterday. Ooopsie x 2.
Now on to my explanations.
A couple weeks ago I said I was going to get back into the swing of things, be more consistent with the gym, lifting heavy, trying to put muscle back on, and tracking my macros. Well, I can say I have done all the of above except the macros part, and here's why: I just don't want to! Things are going really well right now, I have a lot of energy both at the gym and throughout the day and as I said I would I have been bumping up my carb intake week by week. As you can see above I had carbs with meals 1-4 and on some days I'll even have them with dinner too. My portions are a bit bigger and I can totally feel my strength coming back. So, with everything going so well I just don't feel the need to track right now. That's not to say that in a month when maybe progress slows, or I feel like I just need to get a better grip on what I'm eating that I won't start tracking because that very well may happen. But for now, eating what I feel like when I feel like it and not worrying about numbers is working for me.
And that's why I ate all the egg whites yesterday. Because I felt like it :) I should however work on the whole veggies thing... seems to be lacking a bit!
