20 May The Macro Diaries // Week 5
Hey Guys, I just finished up Week 5 of counting my macros and I’m still loving that I’m seeing results! This week came with some interesting additions, though… Check it out!
I’ve had several of you ask me to give an example of a typical day eating while counting my macros, so here’s what I do to get to my numbers (130p/130c/42f):
On my way to school:Protein shake with J-Robb’s Egg White protein, ice and water (I’ll sometimes add PB2 to give it that peanut butter taste)Iced coffee with almond milkBreakfast:2-3 of my little egg mcmuffins (Check out the recipe here!)Lunch:I either eat a portion of last night’s dinner leftovers, which is usually a meat and a vegetable or rice (today it is chicken and broccoli)ORI eat a packet of turkey with mustard… Yes, I know what it sounds like, but I roll the turkey up and dip it in mustard and it’s actually soooo good. I’ll sometimes make a sandwich for lunch, but I make it my goal to eat as much straight protein as possible so I can have whatever I want for dinner (namely, alcohol.)After School:Depending on my lunch, I’ll either have a protein shake again or I’ll have some yogurt and berries/granola or even a granola bar.Almost daily, I cave and eat a mini Butterfinger bar (or 2) since I have them at my desk at school. They really aren’t bad in the macros.Dinner:At this point, I’ll eat whatever fulfills my macros. Usually a protein and a carb–I’ll add butter to add some fats if needed. I also add wine if I can.
