Happy Monday 💜
Cheers to everyone having a four-day weekend!
We were up and at it early this morning, and off to the gym we went. Today was a cardio and mobility only day for me due to stomach cramps (thanks mother nature 😫). I knew it would be a rather light session, so I only consumed BCAA’s this morning beforehand.
Once back home, following cardio- I had peppers, onions and eggs for breakfast.
While sitting out on the patio eating, I realized that we had a lot of lemons that were beginning to weigh down some bottom branches on the trees, so I did some lemon picking 🍋 I had to throw a handful out due to them getting a bit soft, but I think I will collect a few small baskets to leave on our neighbors doorsteps 😉. #whenlifegivesyoulemons
Wesley spent most of his day off in the garage playing with our cars, but paused for a lunch break. I fixed him a whole wheat wrap with spinach, pork and light cheese and I opted for ground turkey and broccoli.
I saved my carbs for after lunch- greek vanilla yogurt topped with pistachios, so yummy!
This afternoon we made a Target run ❤️ and picked up a cart full of randomness: leather wipes, night lights, protein bars, nuts and tampons 😜. I scooped up a smart water and a protein bar for the ride home.
This evening I checked in with clients and did some reading ahead for class tomorrow. I had one more snack for the day: egg whites topped with peanut butter and a side of broccoli (yes, I realize that this is an odd combo). For those that know me and have followed me for a while, I eat for a purpose and according to my macros, so if that means combining foods such as this, thats what I do 😁. For dinner I had ground turkey and cauliflower topped with hot sauce.
Today was my first day back to macro tracking. Since traveling so much the first week of the new year and being on the road, I ate intuitively. Today, I didn’t look at my totals as I tracked, I just logged all of my meals and wanted to see where I was in comparison of where I should be. Today’s totals were significantly lower than where I should be. I am sure that was mostly due to the fact that it was an off day, because when I lift, believe me… I can eat like a linebacker!!
Well, now it is time to pile up and get ready to get back to reality tomorrow.
