First picture is now what one day of eating looks like on a blank log.
This is an example of what my new diet consists of……daily
Breakfast - 5 egg whites, Unlimited vegetables (see list), 1 serving of starch (see starch list)
Mid-morning- 2 turkey or chicken muffins (see recipe), OR homemade protein bars (4 squares) OR, Small meal option (see list), Unlimited vegetables (see list)
Lunch- 6 ounces of lean meat (chicken breast, white meat turkey; white fish like tilapia and orange roughy, boiled shrimp, egg whites), 1 serving of starch (see starch list), Unlimited salad and vegetables (see list)
Mid-afternoon- 2 turkey or chicken muffins (see recipe), OR homemade protein bars (4 squares) OR, Small meal option (see list), Unlimited vegetables (see list)
Dinner- 6 ounces of lean meat (see above), 1 serving of starch (see starch list), Unlimited salad and vegetables (see list)
Evening- 5-6 egg whites**, Unlimited vegetables (see list)
** No carbs (starch) after 7:00 PM (or about 3 hours before bedtime).
Limit fruit to twice daily: berries first thing in the morning and then a half a citrus serving or banana after a workout with your protein shake. Carry a small apple in your gym bag at all times in case an energy slump hits!
Workouts range from 1 hour to 2 hours.
My second picture is Phase 1 of my new workout routine starting tomorrow. Each workout should take 1 hour. I’m also throwing in some light cardio and stretching before and after the workout: warm-up and cool-down.
The program is 12 weeks long, so, I’ll definitely be getting myself a gym membership in the next two weeks: the beau got me a 2-week pass on his membership. 14 days consecutive is what I get from the pass. So on May 14th I’ll be signing my ass up in the gym so that I don’t miss days.
