yiiiiikes. I realize week 2 is almost over.
I apologize for the delay. I’ve been trying to go to Crossfit classes as often as possible (today was day 6 in a row) so I have just been DEAD energy-wise. Tomorrow I’ll attempt the Open workout 17.1 which is going to be a doozy. I’ll for sure end up having 8 days of CF in a row but I may need to take a day off after that. My body is SORE, man.
So diet update – I actually did fairly well this week in terms of not cheating. I’m not sure if I told you guys this in my last update, but I started a calendar in my bathroom to record my weight every day, what type of workout I do, and what/how I cheat (if I cheat). Most days I added extra peanut butter. I love peanut butter.
Although this doesn’t seem like a big deal, PB is considered a ‘healthy fat’ and overeating on your fat intake is obviously not ideal for weightloss.
I did go out for birthday drinks on Monday and Saturday, so that hurt my progress I’m sure. I tried to stick with vodka waters (less macros) but good lord I hate vodka. I wasn’t necessarily hungover on Sunday afterwards, but I was tired AF. Being tired has always made me want to eat more. Logic? Eat more = more energy. Not always necessarily true. I didn’t overeat in terms of amounts on Sunday but my timing and portions were off all day.
Meal prep for this week includes sweet potatoes, zoodles, ground turkey, chicken, pasta, LOTS OF VEGGIES. I’ve decided to stop trying to pre-plan my breakfasts and dinners because when I did that last week I had so much food leftover. My breakfasts have been DELICIOUS though (on post workout days).
Oatmeal made with eggwhites, peanut butter & strawberries. SO GOOD. It’s like dessert for breakfast.
OK! Like I said, week 3 is almost over. I’ll promise to have an update by Tuesday/Wednesday this week.
