Have you hit a plateau?

I see people at work and restaurants eating salads, yogurt, fruit, and other healthy foods and notice they're still overweight. T...

Being prepared feels good



Yay for grocery shopping! My fridge was pretty empty before going shopping and now it's packed. I stuck to my goal of using the food in my fridge and freezer last week - I only have my tilapia fillets left!

Today was a hectic day. My car didn't start on Thursday morning so I had to walk on Thursday and Friday which is good because it's been beautiful the last few days, so my brother came to pick my hungover ass up at 2, stopped at my mom's to pick up his tools, he dropped me and my mom off at Costco while he ran to Canadian Tire to get a new starter for my car, picked us up and I ran into Superstore for some pieces of fruit for my fruit salad, and then we had to go to another Canadian Tire because the location we went to didn't have the part we needed. Got home and while my awesome big bro worked on my car I had to lay out my groceries and take a picture of them because I was excited to start making the food I planned out for this week!


I bought most of this at Costco except for the fruit and cabbage. I got:
  • lunch meats
  • rotisserie chicken
  • avocados
  • blackberries
  • strawberries
  • asparagus
  • sweet potatoes
  • apples
  • pears
  • dragon fruit
  • an orange
  • spinach
  • cabbage
  • steak
  • grapes
  • carrots
  • garlic (I'm trying to use more garlic because it's supposed to boost your immune system)

Here's my meal prep for a few days. I didn't have enough room in my fridge to prepare more than this so this is only a couple days worth. Fruit salad, citrus cole slaw, chopped rotisserie chicken, steak, sweet potatoes, and asparagus.

This week's meal plan will be:

Meal 1:
mushroom and spinach omelet
1/4 large avocado
slice of whole grain bread

Meal 2:
cottage cheese
fruit salad

Meal 3:
rotisserie chicken and citrus cole slaw
or
wrap with veggies and lunch meat

Meal 4: (pre workout)
half a banana

Meal 5:
steak
asparagus
sweet potato


I think I bought too much fruit so I'll probably have to freeze some strawberries. I couldn't decide which fruit I wanted for morning snack so I decided on a fruit salad so I can enjoy a little bit of everything! I have cucumbers left too so those will be eaten with lunch or after dinner if I get hungry.

I input all of my food in to My Fitness Pal and all my macros on point: 40% carbs, 35% protein, 25% fat. It's funny because once you get used to what your meals should look like you can come pretty close to hitting your macro goals without thinking about it too hard.

I just finished reading 'Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle' and I think everyone should read this book if they're struggling with their diet. He walks you through the macros and how your body uses them and then shows you how to plan your meals based on a very easy template. I'll probably read this book again once I finish Amy Poehler's that I bought in December and still haven't read haha.

Alright, time to relax after this crazy day. Needless to say I didn't do my workout today due to being hungover :( Self inflicted I know but my diet was good today - lots of fresh and whole foods minus a Skor bar lol.
