Happy Saturday y’all!
I have a full day of eating for you guys to see today-back to macro tracking!
I woke up this morning at 3 am with back pain like you can’t even imagine! I literally had to roll off of the bed. Wednesday, when I was deadlifting I went fairly heavy being that it was my first heavy session in about 4 weeks. I felt it tighten up a good bit, so I took a moment and stretched out my hip flexors and got right back to my workout. I woke up yesterday morning and it felt a little tight but nothing extreme, so I went for a 4.5 mile run. Unfortunately, at the end of my run, the bottom literally fell out of the sky immediately into my first stretch. Well, like a bonehead, once I got back home, I didn’t take the time to stretch thoroughly and today I am paying for it.
This mornings breakfast: egg whites scrambled with tomatoes and onions, cooked in coconut oil and a side of avocado
A Mid-morning refresher: This is my version of a strawberry slushy.
Blend 1 cup of chopped ice, 1/2 of a Kiwi-Strawberry sparkling Ice, 1/2 of a strawberry-kiwi propel, 1 pack of stevia and 1 tsp. of sugar free strawberry Jello mix. Yummy 🙂
Along with my slushy I had a fruit plate of apple slices, cucumbers and peanut butter.
For lunch I had grilled salmon and zucchini.
After laying around for a good portion of the day, sis and I decided to get out of the house for some low intensity cardio. I needed the movement in order for my hip flexors to loosen up, so I could get a good and thorough stretch in after.
I worked on stretching my hips and lower back for a good 15 minutes. It was painful, but after, I could feel a lot less tension. Tomorrow should be much better!
My mid-afternoon snack was a bowl of protein oats (chocolate), topped with a pinch of granola, cinnamon and stevia.
Tonight’s dinner was eggplant cooked in coconut oil, grilled salmon and tomato paste.
My evening snack was a pita wrap with PB2, cucumbers and a glass of almond milk. I was short on my carbs today, so I did sneak back to the kitchen later for some graham crackers and wheat thins.
In all honestly, without a workout today (even with rest day macros), I would have been just fine without them, but they sounded so good 😉
Well, day one of back to tracking macros was a success.
I hope you all enjoyed seeing a full day of eating.
Go to bed with a grateful heart and face Sunday with smile 🙂 #blessed
