Cleaning everything up. Mostly in my diet, as I ate exceptionally awful from Thanksgiving to Christmas. Today is the first day, and here is the plan:
breakfast: eggs/egg whites, oats, blueberries, coffee with stevia
snack 1: apple, celery and almond butter
lunch: chicken, sweet potato, vegetable
snack 2: homemade protein bars (carrot cake this week, Jamie Eason’s recipe) – these are amazing, can’t wait to try others.
dinner: ground turkey, brown rice, veggies
dessert (so I don’t buy junk): yogurt/Quest bar/homemade protein bar/air popped popcorn
However, all the meal prep is for the birds, let me tell you. It takes a lot of work and effort. I’m glad I did it because it does make life easier and I know that I’ll feel so much better, but it isn’t always fun.
My main goal is to eat as clean as possible, limit my sugar and dairy intake, and overall make sure that my eating goals match my workout goals. I work out too hard to not let my food intake support that.
Not to mention, going back to work after a week of vacation is not enjoyable either. I slept awfully last night, so extra coffee is a must.
Enjoy your last partial week of 2013.
