I have been a little obsessive when it comes to monthly subscription boxes. I did cancel my Birchbox box…I was tired of getting just makeup products. I am very particular with what goes on my face. And it just added unused clutter to my life. However I found JackedPack which is targeted towards the serious athlete, trainee, gym rat. Which is me. Continue reading “JackedPack Subscription”
So in a few of my posts about fitness, I’ve been saying “I’ve been lagging” “Haven’t hit the gym real hard”
Well I’m happy to say that’s all behind me! Yes I did take a few days off because of Fourth of July (and I was on vacation) But other than that, I’ve been hitting the gym really hard the past 5 weeks! I’ve broken some PR’s and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve stayed pretty true to my macros and eating habits. But of course no one is perfect.

So I thought I’d share some insight on how I eat. I have been losing weight (slowly but surely) but also noticing some visible muscle. Which could be from losing fat, very common.
7:00am – Breakfast ~372kcal / 28g Carbs/ 12g Fat / 50g Protein
– 1/2 cup EGG WHITES
– 1 EGG
– 1 LOW CARB TORILLA
– 1 scoop PB FIT POWDER
– 1 packet CHIKE HIGH PROTEIN COFFEE MIX
So here’s breakfast. I try to eat as soon as I wake up, allowing time to get ready and what not. There is always a debate on the importance of eating breakfast. In my opinion; the larger the breakfast, the less hungry I am the rest of the day. Now I say “large” in terms of protein. I find eating a large amount of protein keeps me feeling full longer. I still get my carbs and fats in there, but a higher percentage of Protein in the A.M.
10:00am – Morning Snack ~235kcal / 55g Carbs / 2g Fat / 2g Protein
– 1 CRUNCHY RICE ROLLER
– 1/2 cup GRAPES
– 1/4 cup BLUEBERRIES
– 1 BLISS CHOCOLATE PIECE
– 1 GALA APPLE
10am is when I take my 15 minute break, I usually will eat my snack and then go on a walk down the street. I like to eat a little more carbs now to get me energized for the walk and help me wake up. I still have 6 hours of work left!
1:00pm – Lunch ~351kcal / 26g Carbs / 18g Fat / 23g Protein
– 1/2 CUCUMBER
– 1 tbs HUMMUS
– 1 serving QUINOA TURKEY CASSEROLE (added turkey)
This day I switched my usual homemade chicken wrap for leftover casserole. Still fairly healthy, just a good break from eating only a wrap for lunch every day.
4:00pm – Afternoon Snack (pre-workout) ~234kcal / 21g Carbs / 5g Fat / 27g Protein
– handful CELERY
– 2 tbs PB FIT POWDER
– 12 pieces TEDDY GRAHAMS
– 1 can TUNA LIGHT
Gotta satisfy that sweet tooth with my favorite childhood crackers! I also am loving the powder peanut butter. I wouldn’t eat it everyday seeing how its IS processed to take out most of the fat. I’d still opt for fresh ground peanut butter, literally…ground your own peanuts! You know exactly what’s going in it!
7:00pm – Dinner ~304kcal / 23g Carbs / 5g Fat / 47g Protein
– 1 scoop PROTEIN POWDER
– 4oz TILAPIA
– 1 cup STIR FRY VEGETABLES
– 1/4 cup COOKED BROWN RICE
Yup more protein for this girl! Sometimes I’ll throw in my BCAA in the mix to recover from my workout if I lifted heavy. I also try to keep dinner to a bare minimum. I don’t like getting too fancy with ingredients because the macro/micro tracking becomes more fuzzy and less accurate.
Now this is a low calorie day. I only consumed roughly 1496 calories. I usually try to hit 1580. But I think this is a pretty well rounded day, full of vegetables, good fats, and good sources of protein. Sometimes i’ll treat myself with a bowl of French Toast Crunch cereal with Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk. A perfect substitute for a pice of cheesecake or cookie in my opinion!
Watch out! I’m back in the gym! Well.. sort of. I went for the first time in about…3 months. *EEK!* However I’m still being active. Yoga, walks, Disneyland trips, yoga, walks, and more yoga!
