Nutrition has not been my prime focus the last few months. I’ve been enjoying myself and eating in what I feel is a pretty balanced way, but vacation is coming up. I need to get a little more focused. As of right now, I’ve up’d my protein and veggies a bit during the week. I have been including at least 2 salads around 3 days a week. I am planning on upping that starting on Sunday. I have also started upping the water in take as that helps release water, which helps decrease bloat. I am not planning on following any macro count, but will be incorporating healthy proteins, carbs and fats.
The proteins I am going to be eating are eggs, yogurt, salmon and steak. I am trying not to eat as much chicken because it bothers my skin. The carbs I will be eating are oatmeal, brown rice, whole wheat pasta and possibly potatoes. Right now, in all honesty…I am not feeling potatoes… so carbs will be limited. Fats will be egg yolk, peanut butter, yogurt, olive oil and seeds. Some of the proteins and fats are intertwined.
My alcohol intake has not been 100% limited to weekends like I had anticipated, but my weekday drinks have only consisted of one drink approximately 1 or 2 days during the week. I am going to tighten that up as well.
I like having a goal, but I do not want to have a goal weight. I want to have a goal look which would primarily consist of losing a few inches all over. A bit more cardio can help with that! One more week of FastPhysique for only 5 days a week and then I will be incorporating the 6th day. Doing this will up the cardio portion of the program enough so if I stick to my nutrition that I stated above, I’m hoping it will make a significant impact.
I saw this on pinterest and knew I had to post it. It’s by JillFit who created the FastPhysique program and I believe it to be true. Too many people, including myself, do really well on the weekdays with our diets, but then give up on the weekends. I have found that lately during the day I still do a good job sticking to a good diet during the weekends. At night it gets a little trickier. This is another goal for myself for the next few weeks, to make sure if I’m out to eat, I pick healthier choices. Most restaurants have healthy options, it’s just a matter of making the decision to select them. It takes strength and willpower. I feel like if I keep my mind right, I can find that strength and willpower to make smarter decisions.
