Sometimes..life gets in the way of life. I don't have to tell all of you this.. everyone goes through it all the time.
That was this weekend for me, and I don't want anyone to think I'm complaining, I'm not at all, it was just very tough. So let me tell you about it..
woke up at 5, made breakfast and watched stupid news
3large egg whites
From 8-11:15 I have classes and training, which I don't do all the exercises but I certainly burn through everything I ate.
This is where it gets tough.. I have 15 minutes to eat as much as I can before the kids come in
.. I got 2 slices of cantaloup
Kid's classes end at 1. Then we have open gym, which i can chill behind the desk and eat alllll I want!
I started cooking chicken and steak for us.
Two kids came in, as well as an old friend with his friend who is competing on Ninja Warrior in a month. Well, I forgot all about the meat.
So when I couldn't eat the meat this was my lunch:
1/2c brown rice
1 apple with 1 TBS PB
We closed at 4. Dave had left for the firehouse. I walked home, forgot my keys. Walked back to the gym, walked back home. At this point I'm extremely hungry and a little nauseous.
(don't make fun of me for this... ate the same thing twice today)
1 egg with yolk
2 egg whites
6 grape tomatos
1/4c oatmeal with handful blueberries
cleaned, tried to get my run in but called it good after 1 mile. Too... weak...
Calories: 886 protein:57 Carbs 95 fat: 38 and 1 very weak girl
SUNDAY.. what I thought would be a relaxing day
this goes by fast..
Woke up at 5.
1/2c oatmeal with blueberries
6 mile run... felt amazing. My body feels lighter and I ran faster than normal
Waited for Dave to come home.
4 egg whites
1 apple with PB
Had at kid's party from 10-12 at the gym. Had a shake prepared. Forgot it.
At 1030 had yet another apple with PB (1/2 really.. Dave needed some too)
Now after the party I can't tell you how I excited I was to go home and relax all day! But I forgot.. we planned on going to one of our friends gyms to be ninjas. Went home, drank a shake:
Went to store.. had 2 GF bars. Satisfied.
Ninja-ed around from 130-4. Was called "the power couple" which felt great. I'm not sure if I have more strength from training or my body really is reacting to being clean but for once I was teaching girls how to do the salmon ladder instead of being taught. I could do more with obstacles than I ever could. *HAPPY****!!
530-11pm consisted of hanging out with Dave, my sister and our good friend Matt. We had a lot of Walking Dead to catch up on. Our friends are great, and while I don't think they competely understand why we do this, they support us.
So they ate with us
Whole bunch of strawberries and raspberries
4 oz chicken
1 c baked sweet potato
More strawberries, more almonds
I can't tell you the amounts of today because it flew by so quickly I didn't have any time to put it in my phone.
And that't my weekend in a nutshell.
Days 7+8 were not bad, it's so hard to plan, but by the end of this I hope to be able to create a meal plan for anyone who wants to try this insanity.
If anyone wants any recipes or has any questions please please don't hesitate to ask!
