Breakfast was blue (kinda fun):
Egg white oatmeal:
- 40 grams oats
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 3/4 cup egg whites
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- splenda and cinnamon
I then went to the gym and killed myself in a shoulder and arm workout. My shoulders were burning the entire time! Seriously, these are some of the toughest workouts I've done in a loooong time. I've had to break my cardio (post coming on why I'm choosing to keep cardio in my program), and my weight workouts into two-a-days. If I don't, I just have zero energy.
- 1 banana
- 1 1/2 scoops of vanilla protein powder
- 5 grams glutamine
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- lots of ice
This has been my favorite post-workout meal lately.
Shortly after I drank this and cleaned up, I went to active release. I don't know if you guys know about active release, but it can be pretty painful. I have trouble with my hips and now my knees (as a result of the problem with my hips), and if I don't go to these appointments it shuts down my workouts from pain. Today's appointment was pretty brutal. My left knee is still sore, but I know it'll make things better in the end.
As soon as I came home I made lunch:
- 1 serving tortilla chips
- 5 ounces extra lean ground beef with cajun spices
- 1/2 cup salsa
This is UNREAL! Seriously, I would eat this several times a day if I could.
Homework, homework, homework and then snack:
Homework, homework, dog searching (I want to buy a dog. Cross your fingers that my man will let me :)), and more homework and then supper:
- 20 medium sized shrimp, cleaned
- 90 grams green beans
- 1 cup broccoli
- 1 tablespoon teriyaki sauce
- garlic powder and ginger powder to taste
Cook everything at the same time. Once the shrimp have curled into circles, it's done!
Homework, homework, homework, snack:
April's protein cake with plain yogurt.
Daily stats: 2033 calories, 62 grams of fat, 181 grams of carbs, 201 grams of protein.
After this last snack, I did a little bit more homework for my Criminology class and then made an inspiration board. I got this idea from The Fitnessista. Since I'm a visual person, and wanted to find a way to keep myself motivated throughout the year, I thought this would be the perfect way to combine the two!
Have a great night everyone, chat with you all soon.
