Counting Macros Day One & Two. DID I FAIL? Fourth Of July Shenanigans

Let’s get down to the nitty gritty (anyone play HQ trivia??) If you download it use my code lexrussell5 to give ya girl a free life.

 

Day One of counting macros was a toughy. Just because I am used to eating whatever I want, with caution. So I would reach for something but my discipline would shake its pointer finger at me similar to what I do to my puppy when she is trying to hide her bone in my clean laundry.

 I tracked all of my food using #MyfitnessPal which makes it easy to input exactly what I am eating.

 

Day One: 

Breakfast: Lots of fruit (Watermelon and Strawberries) Not weighed but used my best judgment. One cup of each. With black coffee.

Lunch: Baked salmon and quinoa. 90 Grams of each

 

Snack:  Watermelon and #Quaker ranch rice crisps.

 

Dinner: Taco Mayo. JUDGE ME haha. Just kidding but I actually do think I still hit or stayed under my macros for the day. I had a cilantro rice bowl and chicken and a chicken /rice burrito. 😛

 

Woke up weighting 130lbs. One pound lighter than the previous day. I was soon hungry but I felt good!

Day Two: Fourth of July!!!

Breakfast: Sausage and bacon breakfast tacos made with lots of #Velveeta cheese and a flour tortilla. ***The take away here is I only ate one taco when honestly I could have eaten 12 AND I’m not perfect. This should give you validation that if you want the damn taco EAT THE DAMN TACO!!!

Lunch: McAlister’s in OKC. I had half a salad with ranch and half a sandwich.

Snack: Ranch dip with ruffles and like 10 hot cheetos. (Could have eaten the whole bag but selffffff control, rightttt?)

Dinner: Pork loin with BBQ sauce and a few potatoes from a bag of precooked microwavable …you know…they sucked so I only had a few.

Woke up weighing 131lbs. Grubbed yesterday so it makes sense and I am not upset about it at all!

**A few notes: 

  1. If you are eating something “unhealthy” the fact that you realize it is AWESOME. Which means you probably understand that YES you can have it and you SHOULD but you also need to keep in mind how important portion control is. 
  2. You are not perfect nor should you act like it. Enjoy time with your family. Eat the hotdog, drink the margarita. One bad meal isn’t going to make you fat like one healthy meal won’t make you skinny. It’s a process.
  3. Don’t quit! Even if the scale hasn’t moved, that doesn’t mean you’re not making progress. Take some progress pictures, choose healthy options day by day, and don’t be so hard on yourself! 

Thursday 7/5/2018: I am eating lots of watermelon, drinking lots of water, and chugging coffee like it’s going out of style this morning.
