08/17/2012 – Good Eats

18 Aug

Today was my off Friday but we didn’t do anything exciting because I Lil’ Munchkin’ came down with a fever last night. It’s a mild fever, but we wanted to play it safe and keep him inside. Too bad because the weather was beautiful.

Food was simple and good.

For breakfast, I had an 8 egg white omelet with veggies, sweet potatoes, and a cup of blueberries.

I got hungry around 11:30 and had a flank steak with broccoli and carrots.

I had a chicken breast salad around 4 which I forgot to take a picture of.

One of our friends came over and we ordered a couple pounds of shrimp from this cajun place. I had a few shrimp with this bowl of flank and veggies. I didn’t add any other fat because the shrimp was covered in garlic and butter. I didn’t suck on the shell, so once I peeled it, most of the sauce was gone. Trying to limit fat on workout days.

Day 57 of 100 Day Push Up Challenge done. I’m going to Catalyst to their weightlifting session tomorrow. Hopefully I can learn a few more things!

Today’s my virtual Friday, so I wanted to get into work early, walk on the treadmill for a bit and do work.

I did speed intervals at 9.0 mph for 8 rounds, 30 secs on 90 seconds off. Then I walked uphill the rest of the time until 45 minutes hit. I practiced double unders after and did my 56 push ups for the day. I’m glad I finished and was ready to get to work. I walked into the locker room and realized…I FORGOT MY FREAKIN’ SHOES! Argh. Wednesday I forgot my tennis shoes, today I forgot my shoe shoes! Dammit. So much for getting into work early. I showered, changed, and drove back home to get my sandals. Sigh. At least I finished my workout right?!

Here’s how I ate for the day.

Breakfast was egg whites plus 2 eggs covered in veggies.

I scarfed down my 3rd meal right before I left work to attend Lil’ Munchkin’s Luau at school. Salmon and green beans.

Keepin’ it simple and easy today. Hopefully tomorrow and the weekend will be the same. 🙂

Here’s a recap of what I ate on this fine Hump Day! I grabbed the wrong container this morning, and it did not contain my breakfast that I made the night before. No fear though, my work cafeteria can make me a veggie egg white omelet. Yes…yes, I know egg whites aren’t very nutritious compared to the yolks, but I need the protein more than the fat on training days. Remember, eat for your goals!

BTW, I had sweet potatoes in the container that I left at home, and no my work did not have any sweet potatoes. I had to get 1/2 a cup of dried oatmeal from my coworker. I need my starch for the day.

I don’t know how to make oatmeal. It spilled all over!


Lunch was chicken breast with homemade gravy and veggies.

Mid-afternoon meal was ground beef with cauliflower rice.

Dinner was chicken breast with more gravy and veggies.

Day 55 of the 100 Day Push Up Challenge done, and I did not count the time trials as part of the push ups. 😉

Aaah back to work and back to the routine. I really don’t have any good food prepared this week. I sous vided some meat, and put a chicken in the slow cooker this morning. That way I have lots of protein for the rest of the week.

Here’s how I cleaned up my act. Breakfast was 2 eggs, 3oz of ground beef with broccoli and kale.

My coworker and I did 20x20m Sprints for our workout. I forgot my shoes, so we did it on the volleyball court where there was sand. Then we did 3 rounds of 50m tire flips. It was fun to just get out and move.

I grabbed lunch at my work cafeteria which SUCKED. I got some meat in tomato sauce with steamed cauliflower and raw spinach. I had a tablespoon of almond butter to go with it, but it still left me starving.

I left work early so I could go to Trader Joe’s and pick up some groceries. I stocked up on veggies, sweet potatoes, and more eggs.

Once I got home, I quickly made myself another meal. Grassfed Paleo Stix with raw bell peppers and cucumbers. I drizzled EVOO over the veggies.

For dinner, I had 3oz Rib Eye steak with sauerkraut and roasted brussel sprouts. I also had a small piece of chicken from the slow cooker.

I was starving today! I couldn’t figure out why, whether it was the coffee I had or I just didn’t eat enough breakfast. Then I remember…100 Burpees…for time. Cardio blast.

I had egg whites with sweet potatoes, cauliflower rice, and half a banana.

Sunday was a rest day, but I end up standing all day. We go to the Farmer’s Market in the morning, I play with the kids in between prepping the entire week’s menu. Here’s what I had to eat…

I’m so behind on blogging, I just want to post pics of what I eat so I can report back to my nutritionist, Jen. I did a barbell complex today and it was fun! Got me all sweaty. Today was extra carb day, meaning that I had a carb serving at every meal except dinner.
