Good morning lovelies! I am hoping this post even happens, as my eyes keep closing because it’s really Sunday at 9pm (A. I am a maw maw B. I have to plan this shit out.)
I am already seeing results from giving up cheat meals for Lent! I hadn’t had a loss in weeks or I’d lose less than a pound then gain more back. I knew I had to do something or I’d keep gaining and never wear that bikini. If this is going to happen, I have to take control. So I decided to eat smaller meals more often and go harder in the gym. I am losing slowly, but surely, and not gaining every ounce back. I am 15 pounds away from my high school weight and I have decided that will be my numerical goal for Operation Red Bikini.
Below are today and tomorrow’s meals. Yes, I eat all the time. Gotta keep that metabolism going!
M1: 1 packet instant grits, 3 egg whites, coffee
M2: clementine, string cheese
M3: ½ C. quinoa, 3 oz. chicken, 1 cup green beans (cooked plain, added a little pepper after cooking)
M4: low fat cottage cheese with no sugar added peaches
M6: ½ C. unsweetened almond milk, 1/3 scoop chocolate protein powder, 1 tbsp. PB2
M7: 4 oz. grilled chicken, 1 cup cauliflower, side salad with salsa for dressing
M1: 3 egg whites, 1 wheat tortilla, salsa
M3: 3 oz. chicken, lettuce mix, 1/2 sliced cucumber, 1 oz. goat cheese, salsa for dressing
M4: Think Thin bar
M5: ½ C. unsweetened almond milk, 1/3 scoop chocolate protein powder, 1 tbsp. PB2
M6: 4 oz. grilled chicken, 1 cup vegetable, side salad with salsa for dressing
A few things. I eat immediately after waking up. My mid morning snack is around 9:30 and I eat M3 or lunch at 12:00. I have an afternoon snack around 3, workout around 4:30, then have a protein shake after. I only have a shake when I do strength training, not when I’m just doing cardio. I also need to stress that I am not a nutritionist (I wouldn’t be in this position if I were lol) but this is just what works for me.
I am also the type of person who has to switch things up or I get burnt out. That’s why some days I have a salad, some days I have quinoa or rice with chicken and veggies. I am full of ideas, so if anyone is in need, feel free to comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure if your email isn’t attached to your comment, to leave your email address so I can respond! Also, check out my skinny girl food board on Pinterest for over 250 ideas! Hope everyone has a fab week and I’ll be back before Friday, promise!
