Hi Lovelies! It’s finally Wednesday
I have been MIA and I literally have no excuse. Most days I am focused on other projects I have started and I really hate that my blog has taken a back seat. (It was my birthday last weekend as well!!) BUT NO LONGER! What do YOU want to see? My plan for the blog:
2. More workout ideas
4. More posts on finding balance, flexible dieting, overcoming body dysmorphia and the need to start a new “diet” to lean out
I really wanted to talk about what I have been eating recently since I have gotten some great feedback on my Wednesday eats so far. If you have questions about anything at all don’t hesitate to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for all the support!
breakfast// 1/2 cup oats and 1/2 scoop vanilla protein (using ProZero organic vegan protein) cooked for 2 minutes in microwave, topped with raspberries, 1/2 banana, and 2 T organic natural peanut butter
lunch//3 oz wild-caught cod pan-sauteed in coconut oil (meal prepped), raw green beans, organic strawberries (I buy berries organic because they are on the Dirty Dozen list) and a big handful of almonds (eyeballed at 1 oz)
preworkout snack//Fage 0% greek yogurt with stevia and cinnamon, Honey Nut chex, apple slices, almonds
postworkout dinner//4 oz Mediterranean shrimp, 1 cup brown rice, 2 servings steamed broccoli slaw. I made the shrimp by sauteing onion, garlic dried basil, dried oregano, and red pepper in coconut oil and then adding 1 lb of shrimp-made about 4 large servings and is actually my Mom’s specialty.
bedtime snack//Ezekiel 4:9 sprouted grain tortilla, peanut butter, banana, chocolate chips, and Walden Farms caramel syrup. I honestly don’t even count chocolate chips in my macros because they are a daily occurrence (just like the small amount of coconut oil I use for sauteing items) so its basically negligible
Snack: Definitely had a piece of this dark chocolate as well A girlfriend got this for me as part of my birthday present from her!! She knows the way to my heart!!
Current reverse dieting progress! Still feeling pretty lean and mean and eating about 2200 calories (210-220 carbs, 130-140 protein, 85-90 fat) obviously very loosely following but not worried if I am off by 10-15 grams. The more I eat, the less I overeat on days that I am feeling particularly snacky. I am more consistent with my intake than I have EVER been and I think that is why I continue to be able to see abdominals (not always healthy) and still able to workout hard, not feel fatigued, have the energy I want and be able to eat whatever I am craving. Have been a little inconsistent with my weekends but plan for another increase next week!
And I leave you with this…because #ICECREAM and #SUMMER.IS.COMING. And you can follow along with my prettier food pictures on my Instagram.
