Reflections on Friday

Training was good.

Swings w/ 20 kg
20 L, R
rest 40 seconds
20 L, R
rest 40 seconds
20 L, R

TGUs w/ 12 kg
5 x 3 L, R

Food choices were good.
  • Advocare shake for breakfast (I always do this)
  • Black tea - straight up
  • 2 hard boiled eggs
  • orange, apple
  • 20 almonds (approximately)
  • pork chop
  • carrots

The only drawback to the food choices was that I didn't get many veggies. I wasn't prepared. So, I had two fruits instead. Today (Saturday) I will make up for my veggie deficit. I am going to whip up some garlic lime dip (Thank you to Tracy!) and cut up a bunch of veggies. Yum!!

I'm hoping to take a spin on my Harley today. It's looking like a nice day.

Amy, one way to get more veggies save calories you can cut the almond snack in half 10 almonds, or as I suggest, cut the 2 eggs to 3 egg whites, but only on yolk and change it to egg salad....

3 eggs, but only 1 yolk (110cal.)
1 tbl mayo (100 cal.)
diced celery, shredded cabbage or lettuces, green onion, grated carrot, red bell or diced jalapeno, just some ideas...

And you can make it ahead of time, a couple, three days worth!

Just a suggestion!

That sounds like a good idea. I can make up the salad ahead of time and even use it as a dip for celery and carrots.

It's fantastic getting all of these new ideas for my nutrition. Thanks a bunch!
