And just like that we’re more than halfway through week one! Today wasn’t as hectic and I was able to make some easy & quick adjustments for extra protein. Here’s what that looked like:
Breakfast – should’ve been 1/4 cup of oats with 1 tsp of pb…but they exploded in the microwave 🤦🏻♀️ so it was much less. Washed that down with protein apple juice and iced coffee with caramel macchiato creamer
Lunch – 4 oz turkey sausage patties, chopped; 2 oz brown rice; 2 oz string beans; mushroom, quartered
Dinner – veggie burger topped with a sprinkle of cheese and chopped mushroom; 2 oz butternut squash; 3 Brussels (cuz that’s all that was left); Approx 1/2 cup of cracked black pepper edamame; washed down with La croix lime seltzer
Snacks – protein brownie; rice cake with 1 tsp pb; iced coffee with almond milk; cottage cheese; 1/2 rx bar
Once again, MFP doesn’t factor in the fiber so my carb count isn’t THAT high but it’s still higher than it should be. I’m excited to go food shopping and create new protein packed foods for next week! I did a few PT exercises from my at-home program but that’s about it for exercise today. Tomorrow is another full hour in PT but should be an easier day overall. It’s almost the weekend everyone – hang in there!
Until tomorrow, stay strong & stay in the fight!
