After taking a little time off I'm back with lots of food on this WIAW! I've admittedly had a rough time in the gym department over the past 6 weeks or so. A few weeks ago I decided I would start counting my macros again but that doesn't really do a whole lot in the way of gaining muscle or leaning out if you're not going to the gym or when you are going only giving it 50%.
It's been a struggle lately because of the sleep thing (yes, still dealing with that) and it's hard to muster up the energy for a good workout on just a few hours of sleep. Last week I looked at myself in the mirror and realized my muscle that I've busted my butt for was slowly disappearing. It was a big wake up call and since last Monday I've increased my macros and started really giving it my all when I do go to the gym. It's not any easier, but I think now that I have a goal to add some more muscle it's easier to focus and really push hard- even if it takes an extra scoop of pre workout ;)
Here's what my meals looked like yesterday:
Flat out wrap with egg whites
Egg whites with asparagus and 2 slices Ezekiel toast
Flat out fold over with Boars head turkey and a couple strawberries
Protein shake and 1/2 banana
Greek yogurt with blueberries and a crumbled rice cake
Chicken chili over shredded lettuce
Casein with peanut butter and a crumbled rice cake (not pictured)
I'll be updating you guys with some new workouts since I'm switching up my training style just a bit, stay tuned!
