Starting off today’s blog post with a post workout pic! Me after pretty much any dance class or Pilates session = PURE JOY
Honestly you guys, if you don’t feel joyous, happy, light, and lifted after your workout – don’t give up! Keep searching for “the one”. I promise it is out there. And much like human relationships, you need to explore! Date around. Figure out what you like and what you don’t like. And when you find that person or that workout that you finally fall in love with, just know that even then, there will be good days and bad days. But stick with it, and your love and your commitment will grow stronger!
Oh by the way that pic was shot on my new iPhone 11 Pro! Pretty good huh!!??? It’s basically DSLR quality!
Here’s bad timing between me and Sam, BUT look at that hair. It keeps growing!!! YASSS collagen YASSSS.
Oh and I wanted to show you that in my cardio dance class I burned more calories than in Barry’s Bootcamp or one of my Training Mate circuit training classes! Plus, my heart rate got up to 179 BPM! That is the highest I have EVER seen it go. Which means…that I am willing to push myself more in dance because I am having more fun. And you guys know how much I hate cardio. Proud of this. I wonder if I can get it to 180BPM? I might die. LOL.
Here’s my Fit Journal entry. Weight went down for the 2nd day in a row after food tracking. Let’s see if this still holds true tomorrow. But pretty exciting to see that the tracking is working as of right now!
23% carbs, 77% fat, 0% protein
I had MCT oil powder and BHBs in water.
20% carbs, 46% fat, 34% protein
I had one of the most amazing lunches I have ever made! I tried making lime flavored cauliflower rice for the first time and OMG it elevated – I mean ELEVATED my meal. I’ll give you my exact recipe tomorrow once I add in the cilantro.
I had the lime cauli rice with 2 chicken skewers, whole eggs with butter, pico de gallo, and guac.
I also tried making keto egg rolls! These are steamed cabbage leaves filled with ground beef.
21% carbs, 55% fat, 24% protein
I wanted to get in an early dinner before I headed out to my deep tissue massage, so I quickly warmed up some leftovers: 2 of those keto egg rolls (dipped in creamy jalapeño sauce), some lime cauli rice, and ground turkey with bits of paleo sausage and chanterelle mushrooms.
I had some fresh organic strawberries as dessert! YUM. So happy to have fruit back in my life.
20% carbs, 55% fat, 25% protein
Since I still had calories “left over”, I decided to make more food for a late dinner. As of right now, I don’t know if it’s better to be in a deficit (will my body go into starvation mode and hold onto everything?) or to eat up to my allotted amount. However, eating my allotted amount probably isn’t helping at all when I am doing it at 10PM! Oh well!
First of all. You guys. These Nuco Coconut Wraps I bought at Whole Foods IS LIFFFEEEEEE. OMG, so good. I had ZERO expectations for this, but still, IT BLEW MY MIND. It tastes better than a regular tortilla!
I wanted to make a mini breakfast burrito, so inside I put some of my lime cauli rice, grilled chicken, avocado, and eggs with chives. I had this with pico de gallo.
Rolled it up (didn’t even have to warm the wrap) and then filled the rest of my plate with more of the inside ingredients.
When I took my first bite of that burrito, I died, went to heaven, and came back just to tell you HOW GOOD IT WAS. Like OHHHH EMMM GEEEE good. You need to go get these wraps.
Also – who else gets a high when they make a new food creation and it tastes so good that you be like “TIME TO OPEN A RESTAURANT!!!!”??? Seriously, if I made this for you, you wouldn’t need to eat anything else ever again. I cannot wait to have this again.
The day’s meals came in at 1,857 calories, 20% carbs, 53% fat and 27% protein.
I’m curious to see how my muscle definition will be affected given that fat is my highest macro, not protein. We shall see! But so far, feeling full and happy!
