Rise and Shine folks 🙂
Man, I think I slept over 9 hours last nightâ€¦oops! It felt great and now I am energized and ready to teach some little kids at church.
We are running 9 miles today after church, so I made sure to have a very filling breakfast. I enjoyed two slices of Ezekial Bread + One Egg White +One Sunny Side Egg + an Avocado.
On the side I devoured a fresh orange picked right off our tree 🙂
So the 14 week Kettlebells Challenge is well on itâ€™s way. So far I have gone to two weeks of Kettlebells and have really enjoyed it. I havenâ€™t noticed a huge difference, but I know it will come all in good time. I do know that next week I will be going up in weight so it might feel a little tougher. Along with doing Kettlebells 3 times a week our instructor is helping us with our nutrition plan.
At first I said no to the nutrition plan, but then decided to see what it is all about. So I signed on up. Mostly to really take this challenge seriously, so I can see real results.
So I gave the instructor my goal and here is what she gave me:
My goal is to burn fat and build lean muscle.
Eat only foods on the list she gave us. (I already eat most of these..Iâ€™ll be sharing soon)
- Eat 35% protein 25 % carbs and 40% fat
- Record what you eat at mynetdiary.com
- Stick to it at least 90% of the time.
- Eat 5 meals a day.
Current Weight: 130
Goal Weight: 125
Maintenance Days Plan(days I am doing kettlebells)
Grams of protein per day: 153
Grams of carbs per day: 109
Grams of fat per day: 78
Grams of protein per meal: 31
Grams of carbs per meal: 22
Grams of fat per meal: 16
Caloric Deficit Days Plan (not doing kettlebells)
Grams of protein per day: 107
Grams of carbs per day: 77—–>HARD TO DO!
Grams of fat per day: 54
Grams of protein per meal: 21
Grams of carbs per meal: 15
Grams of fat per meal: 10
I started recording last Tuesday and it has been TOUGH! I learned that I do not eat enough fat or protein! To record my instructor told us to use MyNetDiary itâ€™s ok, I think I like Livestrong better.
Here is what MyNetDiary looks like:
And here is what Livestrong looks like:
One said I had 19.96 grams of protein and the other one said I had 17 grams of protein?!
Days that I run long, like today I do not count it as a Caloric Deficit Day I go with the maintenance day plan.
So for today I need to try and follow this plan:
Calories: 1750 —so far 397
Grams of protein per day: 153—–so far 19.97
Grams of carbs per day: 109—-so far 52.72
Grams of fat per day: 78â€¦16.2
THE HARDEST IS CARBS and PROTEIN!! I need to eat less carbs and more protein. For someone who didnâ€™t think the felt like they ate a ton of carbs this is HARD!!
No, I will not beat myself up if I eat too many carbs and I will not be really strict about this nutrition plan, but I will give it a shot.
I will be taking a lot more pictures of what I eat to keep myself accountable. The food is pretty boring, but I am going to try and spice it up a bit 🙂
Side Note: THIS PLAN IS NOT FOR EVERYONE! This was made specifically for me by a personal trainer.
Question: Do you think you need enough protein, carbs, and good fats?
