Taking It Slow

Posted Jan 11 2010 10:40pm

Hi guys!

Whew I’ve had a busy day!

This morning I started off with 1 Cran-tastic Protein Muffin:

And then I proceeded to get my butt kicked doing the 50 minute P90X Chest and Back DVD! I’d love to tell you that I rocked out the pull ups but sadly I could only do about 30 total. The rest I needed assistance! I’m ok at doing close grip ones, but the overhand wide grip ones need some serious help. It’s my new goal! I used this new tool:

That workout was killer.. I did well over 100 push ups (not girl ones) and I couldn’t even keep up with the DVD! Yikes! Then I did the 15 minute P90X Ab Ripper DVD.. Afterwards it was time for breakfast!

I made a super quick breakfast of German Chocolate Protein Oats and topped them with 2 tsp sliced almonds and 1 tsp Naturally More PB:

?400 calories, 42 grams of protein, 32 grams of carbs

Sooo good!!! You couldn’t even tell there was cottage cheese in there.. it was more like a thick, pudding pie filling! It made a smaller portion but my stomach is liking the small protein packed meals as I already mentioned. It’s by far my favorite breakfast as of late!

Then I got ready and proceeded to take the super long drive to the main campus for my Microbiology Lab. The parking seriously sucks! I parked pretty far away and proceeded to get my cardio in for the day by taking a long walk plus a few flights of stairs to my class. Good thing I was wearing my Reebok EasyTone Shoes! ;)

3 1/2 hours later I was hungry! I packed meal number two to eat in the car which was 2 Protein Cakes (recipe to come tomorrow) with 1 tsp Naturally More PB in each and a sliced apple:

Meal 2: 335 calories, 40 grams of protein, 30 carbs

That meal filled me up so bad! I think it was the apple that put me over the edge! Ever since I’ve been going low(er) carb I’ve slacked in the fruit department. So I’m trying to get in at least 1 serving a day now!

Anyway, then I proceeded to take the 45 drive back to my part of town to go to my Developmental Psychology Class. When I got home (2 1/2 hours later) I was more than ready for meal number 3! Last night I made a buffalo chicken salad by mixing 4 oz chicken with 1/2 cup 0% Fage, tons of all natural hot sauce, diced celery, cayenne pepper, and black pepper. Today I threw it on a bed of organic baby spinach and had it with a No-Carb Soy Muffin smeared with 1/4 tsp coconut oil and cinnamon:

But since I had a little room leftover I had some Protein Brownie Batter of course!

Meal 3 total: 400 calories, 60 grams of protein (whew!) and 10 carbs

And then I was off to babysit for a couple hours! I just love that little guy.. I’m like part of their family now so every time he says a new word or does something new I get super happy like a mom! LOL.

When I came home I had a simple dinner of 4 1/2 oz lean pork loin with all natural habanero sauce and some defrosted green beans:

?200 calories, 25 grams of protein, 6 carbs

I was full after this but remember I’m trying to increase my metabolism here! So I went with a small but nutrient dense dessert… more Protein Brownie Batter with 1 tsp PB:

135 calories, 22 grams of protein, 6 carbs

I might have more snacks before bed if I’m still hungry! I’ve decided to take my calorie increase slowly as not to shock my body, unless one day I work out super hard or am extra hungry. Otherwise I don’t want to suddenly bombard my body with tons of extra food! My plan is about 100-200 more each week. So this week I’m eating around 1500, next week I’ll go to 1600, and hopefully eventually I’ll get to 2000 or more! I can’t wait :D haha!

Do you guys want me to continue to post my macros (cals, carbs, protein) for the day? Yes, I am counting calories again but it is for the best.. we all agree I need to eat more and this is the best way for me to do so! If you all don’t want me to post my macros I wont.. just let me know! Or if you’d rather me make a seperate page for the daily totals for those of you who do want to see, I can do that too. Just let me know what you guys want! :D

Well that was a speedy post! I’m off to get some things done before bed.. luckily tomorrow I only have one class and it’s on this side of town so it will be more laid back.

See you!
