I realized once we got back from vacation last week that my building season is coming to a close. I would like to schedule another photo shoot in April sometime because it gives me a big goal and something to get excited about! I like to switch into photo shoot mode about 10-12 weeks prior so eat as much as I want/can season is just about over. (Sad face). I haven't counted calories or done cardio in months and it's been a great break, but I was while writing up this blog I decided to plug in my food to see what I was eating. I'm not overly thrilled with the number I came up with, 1720. I was hoping to be closer to 2000 which means I need to start counting again. For the next 4 weeks I'll start using MyFitnessPal.com again to keep track and make sure I'm eating enough. Oh well, the break was nice!
I switched up breakfast a little yesterday, 3 whites and 1 whole with one chicken sausage link and this awesome cereal I found in the bulk section at my grocery store. I can't remember for the life of me what is in it, I just remember it was gluten free and the ingredients looked great. I'll try to find it again this weekend.
I grabbed a Quest bar before heading out to my workout. Not what I usually do, but I needed to get there and back and needed something quick.
Post workout I had a protein shake and a green apple, nothing too fancy.
Lunch was lasagna and a side salad- leftovers from last nights dinner.
I followed a recipe in a newlywed cookbook for Jamaican Jerk chicken and I have to say I was not impressed. One of the spices was just too much and totally overpowered the taste of the chicken. At least the sides were good! Rosemary red potatoes and garlic green beans.
I was a little hungry by the time I got home from training so I went with something easy, 3 whites and 1 whole. I don't typically eat 2 yolks in a day, but eh! Sounded good :)
Are you counting calories? If no, I challenge you to 'spot check' yourself to see what you're really eating, you may be surprised!
