I don’t know how many times I’ve had the discussion with people that are frustrated because they are not losing weight. Then you ask what they’re eating. Often times they think their diet is good because they are skipping meals(primarily breakfast) They think that if they don’t eat breakfast or snack it’s ok to eat whatever they want when it comes to their lunch or dinner time because they didn’t “use” those calories earlier on in the day. WRONG!!! You need to fuel your body all throughout the day to keep your metabolism up. You will rarely find me without snacks nearby. I eat constantly throughout the day. I just make smart choices with what I put in my body. Here is an example of what I normally eat in a day.
5:30 am: I drink my Spark(cannot live without this) and take my Catalyst(supplements to build lean muscle) and Advocare Calcium Plus
ActoTherm SR, and Probiotic
6:45 am:Breakfast I drink an Advocare Meal Replacement shake. You just add water they are so yummy you don’t need to add milk or anything else that would add calories. With my shake I take my Advocare Omega Fatty Acid Supplements
8:00 am: Banana or apple with 1 tablespoon of natural peanut butter(I kind of count this as part of my breakfast)
10:30 am: carrots with hummus if I’m hungry(which I usually am)
11:00 am: Spark with Advocare Calcium Plus, Catalyst, and BioTherm
11:30: Salad- use really green lettuce(iceberg has no nutritional content), with grilled chicken, 1 sliced hard boiled egg, grape tomatoes, cucumbers, little bit of goat cheese and 1 tablespoon of Balsamic Vinaigrette and my Advocare CorePlex and CardioQ
1:30 pm: cluster of grapes
3:00 pm: carrots and hummus
I usually workout right after work, so after my workouts I’ll eat a Quest Bar
6:30-7pm Dinner tonight we had Chicken tossed in bread crumbs and italian seasoning, red pepper quinoa, and broccoli
8:30 or 9 mango
Those are all approximate times but see I eat ALL day long! But because I’m consistently eating small meals throughout the day my metabolism is still burning. I find that if I’m not eating like this throughout the day I’ll go nuts and want to stuff all the food I can into my mouth because I’m so hungry!!Also, all my Advocare supplements come in convenient labeled vitamin packs so I don’t have to think about when I have to take what.
Today was a good workout day! I ran 5:05 miles during my lunch break, it took me 46:41….by the way I do not like to run for long distances. I prefer sprints but I push myself to do long distance running. Then after work I went back to my trusty Outlaw programming. I did not do their strength for the day because I did cleans yesterday for my strength with Invictus and that was what Outlaw had programmed for today as well. Also,my youngest son had t-ball so I was short on time, but here you go.
12 minutes to complete-
3 rounds of:
15 Shoulder to Overhead 65#
10 C2B Pull-ups
This took me 7:33
With the remainder of the 12 minutes-
Lateral Jump Burpees (Burpee, then hop to the other side of the bar – this equals one rep.)
I did 51 Lateral Jump Burpees!
Today was a good day, busy, but a good day 🙂 See you all tomorrow!
