A Better Day

I'm so close to perfect with my macros today! Whoot Whoot.

After I gave my breakfast a few minutes to settle in my tummy, I hit my yoga mat for about 40 minutes of yoga. I did a yogadownload.com sesh... no surprise. Thanks to the Fitnessista, I got 35% off my purchases. Can't beat that :)

It was killer today. My body has felt super tired these last few days, and this workout didn't help make it feel any more perky. I did the Yoga for Runners download. It's their daily deal - quick go buy it! It's awesome.

Here are the daily goods.

Salmon Salad

  • 4.4 oz salmon (leftovers from last night)
  • 2 hard boiled egg whites
  • 1 T light mayo
  • 1/2 tsp mustard
  • 1/2 celery 
  • 1/4 cup cooked brown rice
  • dill 
  • pepper
So yummy... especially since I cooked the salmon with lemon the night before. :) 

This was my before class lunch. After class I ate this grapefruit as a little pre workout snack.

Then I hit the gym for some triceps and shoulders. It was killer. I was so tired afterwards. I really wanted to do at least 30 minutes of cardio, but I just didn't have it in me. 

  • Pushups 
  • Overhead Press 4 sets of 10
  • Upright Row 4 sets of 10
  • Bent Over Lateral Raise 3 sets of 12
  • Skull Crushers 3 sets of 12
  • Bench Dips 15 slow reps
Now that I'm writing it out, this seems so short. Maybe I need to take  rest day tomorrow to get back my energy.

Post workout smoothie:

D's beer cups are perfect for the size of my smoothies. I'd take a smoothie over a beer any day!

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1/2 frozen banana 
  • 4 ice cubes
Perfect and filling! 

Not long after this it was time to think about dinner. I made D this turkey ragu. 

Wow... sorry about the lighting here.

This was my dinner. 

The only thing new here is the added chicken breast. 

  • 4 oz chicken breast
  • 1 cup broccoli 
  • 2 cups cabbage 
  • worcestershire sauce 
  • tons of black cracked pepper
  • hot sauce
So good. My lips were on fire by the time I was finished - gotta love that hot sauce. 

So by the end of the day my macros looked like this - 46% protein, 28% carbs, and 26% fat. I'm getting better! 

Time to start writing for my school work - bla, bla, bla. I just wanna be done! 


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am still looking for fun blogs to read! I don't know what I like more the salmon salad or dinner... YUM! Why are you going for such a high amount of protein?

  2. Thanks for stopping by mine too! High protein because I'm trying to tone up, and lose a little bit more body fat. The protein is crazy! I had 187 grams today alone! enjoy trying new ways of eating. I'm still trying to see what works best for me.
