Good evening! Today's been a good day...very busy. I started off the day with a cup of joe...decaf of course. My oh my did it taste delicious! I was then off to a pretty intense workout. It felt great and a good way to start my day. Beginning today I am house/dog sitting so I have already resisted more temptations. "There are some homemade enchiladas in the fridge that will go bad by the time we get back, so please eat them." Ugh--I can't! But they look so good. There's also lots of other stuff in the fridge I can't eat, such as, EGGS, cheese, ranch, bread, and the list goes on. I will not eat it though!! Tomorrow I'm going to my house to meal prep so I remain on track for my no meat week!
Here's what I ate today:
Breakfast: 1 scoop OptiCleanse GHI vanilla protein powder mixed with water. 1 cup organic brown rice puff cereal with 1 cup coconut milk.
After workout/early lunch: 2.4 oz grilled chicken tenders, 1/2 chicken patty and 2 small beets.
Snack: 1 organic gala apple with 1 tbsp almond butter.
Late lunch: Poki bowl--this may have had some soy in it, but whatever I ate was pretty slim. I modified it to fit the cleanse it was SO good. (Brown rice, organic greens, ahi tuna, salmon, jicama, cucumber, seaweed and ginger).
Dinner: Chicken patty (plain) with cucumbers and radish
Late night snack: 1 scoop OptiCleanse GHI vanilla protein powder mixed with water.
Total Calories: 1327 (41% Carbs, 23% Fat, 36% Protein). This may not be 100% accurate as I didn't add some of the stuff that was on my poki bowl, but I ate clean all day and to me, that's what counts!
Tomorrow is the last day to eat meat for a few days. I hope I can maintain the calories I want to consume, which by the way I am trying to eat only 1300 calories per day with a 40/40/20 split of Carbs/Protein/Fat. It's going to be hard to not eat that many carbs with no meat! If I go over, I won't be too worried because it's all veggies and beans and minimal fat. I'll see how the week goes!
