TGIF! I always love Friday afternoon’s because it is the start of the weekend. My husband and I have a very busy weekend planned this weekend including mountain biking tomorrow! I started off my weekend great this afternoon by meeting with my trainer Sasha after work!
Today Sasha and I sat down to chat about my nutrition. With going back to school and finally being able to fit in six meals a day, I know my metabolism is getting faster because I am always hungry. We made a few minor tweaks to my diet to see if it helps. I will be implementing the changes starting tomorrow! I am going to try this for a couple of weeks before we go back and re-evaluate.
Recently, I have been feeling extra bloated, so I have eliminated greek yoghurt. When I switched milk a few months ago for almond milk this really helped the bloating situation. I am thinking this will be a positive change, plus I am getting kind of sick of my daily plain greek yoghurt. We are also trying to incorporate more greens in my diet. I really struggle with getting enough vegetables, so we are adding at least a salad a day. I love salads, so this will make the more veggies easier I am hoping! Finally, we added an extra serving of protein in the afternoon, to help with my afternoon hunger. Finally, as I get closer to competing in the future, I will eventually have to switch peanut butter for almond butter :(. This will be a tough change for me.
Here is what daily meals should look like for me:Breakfast: 2 eggs, 2 egg whites, and oats.
Mid Morning Snack: Spinach salad with chicken
Lunch: 4 oz meat, 4 oz complex carbhydrates, and a vegetable
Mid afternoon snack: 1 tbsp peanut butter with 14 apple slices and 4 oz chicken
Dinner: 4 oz meat, 4 oz complex carbohydrates, veggies
Post Work Out Shake (This shake was posted previously it has recently been modified. I will re-post the new recipe soon).
Additionally, I am adding a couple new supplements. These supplements include digestive enzymes to help with digestion, vitamin C to keep my immune system healthy, and a women’s multivitamin!
How is your nutrition recently? Have you implemented any changes?
