Week 3 here we go! I'll start this week out by noting that today is Ash Wednesday and to keep myself accountable I'll also tell you I'm giving up alcohol for lent. Zero, zip, not even a sip! 40 days, here we go!
I made a small change to my meal plan, lowered it by about 100 calories to get a little jump start on fat loss. I cut my whole egg out of my breakfast and then just needed about 30 more calories from another meal, no biggie.
Breakfast number 2 was 2 pieces of Ezekiel toast and some more egg whites. After this meal I hit the gym for some back and bis and gosh, higher reps really get me! It's so much more challenging for me to get through the workout and I'm SORE! Really sore.
Post workout I did Greek yogurt, pumpkin/flax cereal, and berries. I also mixed in a little MRM protein powder to up the protein a bit.
A super plain salad with turkey taco meat on top for a snack. To be honest this didn't keep me full very long at all, but then again there wasn't a whole lot to it. I notice now that I've started eating a lot more carbs, if a meal doesn't have carbs in it, it hardly keeps me full.
I made a big batch of salsa chicken that will last throughout the week for lunches and snacks- last night I just had mine with some brown rice. I love mixing this chicken in with egg whites, putting it on salads, or making tacos!
Are you giving up something for lent? Or maybe adding something new to your life?
