We all know Friday is the favorite, Wednesday is the second and well, nobody likes Monday.
Let's talk food.
Yeah my food choices have greatly changed.
There was a point over a year ago when I could polish off a cheesecake sample by myself and still want more, it was ridiculous and unhealthy.
Now I still like my foods and many of you are asking how I'm eating these days.
I'm always willing to try new meals, diet plans, ect. I've done carb cycling, counting calories, no wheats, no dairy, meals from a nutritionists and so on.
For the month of December I followed a meal plan from my trainer that went with my lifting program, which was great while I was lifting like that and all. But now I've shifted into half marathon training and I've taking my eating back to my kind of make shift plan that's worked for me in the past. I've also adapted it to include things I've learned from my trainer and so on.
I'm not COUNTING calories, but I'm AWARE of how many calories I'm taking in.
I still do meal prep. I will always do this because I like the convince of having healthy foods at my fingertips just as easily as the junk food can be.
Now here are some examples of what my meals are consisting of:
Old fashion oats with water with a piece of fruit
Serving of Chex or Special K cereal mixed with a 100 calorie Greek yogurt
2 Special K waffles with sugar free syrup and scrambled egg whites
Healthy choice soup or the vegan friendly soup with Special K chips
A romain lettuce salad with fat free cottage cheese, sunflower seeds, turkey, onions and bell pepper.
Rice and veggies sometimes with chicken
Low carb tortilla pizza with fat free cheese And turkey pepperoni
Taco salad with ground turkey, no sour cream
Chicken and sweet potato fries
Mixed fresh fruit
Carrots and pickles
Natural raw almonds and raisins
Special K bar
Quest nutrition bar
I also substitute meals with protein shakes or smoothies.
I eat in this pattern, breakfast- 3hours later snack- 3 hours lunch - 3 hours snack- 3 hours dinner.
When I'm on the go go go I will grab a quest bar for a good filling and nutrient packed tide over.
I still will eat "junk food" but I do so in complete moderation or I find healthy substitutions for recipes to make them more friendly to my lifestyle.
