Sorry, this post is a little late due to some technical problems with my internet (thanks alot Verizon). I made it to the end of week 3 staying strong with the exception of a cheat meal (day is more like it) on Sunday. Contrary to what I thought was going to happen, my willpower has become a little stronger as the weeks go by. Those Swedish Fish in the back of my fridge don’t seem to be calling my name QUITE as loudly.
Here is a sample of my diet today:
Meal 1: 1/2 cup of oatmeal with 1 scoop protein powder
Meal 2: sandwich made from 2 slices of low sodium Ezekial bread, 1 tablespoon lite mayo, 1 tablespoon mustard, 1 slice sandwich meat, 1/4 avocado
Meal 3: 1/2 cucumber (sliced) dipped in 1/3 cup yogurt (with dill and squeeze of lemon)
Meal 4: 4 oz chicken breast, 1 small sweet potato, 1/2 cup mixed veggies
Meal 5: 4 oz chicken breast wrapped in whole wheat tortilla 1 cup lima beans
Meal 6: 1 scoop protein powder and water, handful of raw unsalted walnuts
This plan puts me at about (roughly) 1,800 calories. I need to make sure my body is well fed so I can build muscle and keep my body from resorting to using muscle as fuel.
Here’s a pic of my abs. I’m starting to notice a flatter belly and more muscle definition.
