Yesterday was day 6 of my 24 day challenge. I tried something new with it.
The past few days I was concerned that I wasn’t getting enough calories for how much I was working out. Yesterday in particular I did a lot. I rowed a bunch, I did a WOD of allllll the deadlifts and boxjumps and then I went for a run around a local lake. Oh, and then I had 2 rounds of dog walks 😛
I made sure to stay within challenge guidelines of what I chose to eat but I also wanted to make sure I was getting the right breakdown of each nutrient: 40% carbs, 30% protein and 30% fat. I tracked everything in MyFitnessPal.com. I changed the settings to make sure it was set how I want, not how they suggested.
I have to say, that I am pretty happy with how I did. Some things I ate yesterday:
Breakfast of banana, toast and some almond butter
Lunch was just a turkey sandwich with a side of chobani. Boring and no pictures.
Post workout protein shake mixed with water…not something you want to see since it looks like pee, I swear. But as an afternoon snack I made an awesome protein powder smoothie.
frozen bluebs+almond milk+vanilla protein+1 tbsp pb = yum
Some Spark thrown into the mix. I swear I am obsessed with this stuff. Fruit punch is my go-to right now but I am excited to try the new watermelon flavor!
Dinner was shepherds pie, thanks to this girl for all the cooking help.
I need something sweet after dinner so I snacked on a few pieces of pineapple. Once all was said and done I am pretty happy with my personal nutrient breakdown!
There is definitely room for improvement but I think tracking my nutrition this way for the next few days will really help me a ton!
Do you track what you eat?
