Fresh start

As I said last week I have put myself in maintenance mode with small bites of this and that here and there and exercising sporadically. Doing this is fine if I wanted to stay where I am but this girl has GOT SOME GOALS so I gotta get on the ball if I want to reach them.

Yesterday I spent a couple of hours prepping some food, chicken, fish, steak, spinach and lettuce. I am eating this menu for the week:

B - 1/2 cup of oatmeal, 1/2 cup of blueberries, 5 egg whites
S - rice cake and peanut butter
L - 6 oz. chicken cooked in lawry's teriyaki, lettuce with spray ranch, 1 cup of milk w/ 1 scoop of protein powder
S - 4 oz. steak, 1 cup of steamed broccoli
D - 6 oz. fish and spinach salad w/ balsamic vinegar dressing

I finally bought myself a digital food scale and I was able to measure the exact portions of the meat. YEA!!! I can't believe I have waited so long to buy this. Oh well, better late than never.

I will get in 4 fasted cardio workouts this week also.

So far so good today with my food plan. I did not work out this morning which is fine. I am still on target for my exercise plan.

Better late than never is right! There is no such thing as TOO LATE when it comes to taking care of one's self.
If you find that you're still hungry, do what we do on a show diet and just consume more veggies. I do not count the calories or carbs in my veggies, because they are so minute and the fiber is so high it pretty much just negates...(corn and carrots not included)...But if 1 cup of broc. is not enough, eat 2! You'll be nice and full. You might smell like a boys locker room for a few hours, but you won't be hungry! LOL
