Week 2 Day 1

Breakfast: Steak, eggs, potato slices Lunch: Apple, banana, larabar Dinner: Pork roast, potatoes Steak & eggs just sounds like a massive meal that would leave you feeling sluggish, but this breakfast was awesome and only made me feel energized and ready to take on the day. I really try to listen to my body when…

Week 2 Day 2

Breakfast: Almonds, banana, leftover pork roast Lunch: Burger + avocado, sweet potato fries, homemade ketchup Dinner: Chicken thighs, green beans, leftover sweet potato fries While I was training for my competitions, I was eating a lot of the same foods over and over so I got used to eating weird combinations or I wouldn’t warm things up…

Cake, ice cream, WINE. But knowing ahead of time that I had to make good, clean choices made the day easier and I still…

Week 2 Day 7

Breakfast: banana, Larabar Lunch: apple, almond butter Dinner: Burger on potato slices. Roasted veggies. I stayed up really late the night before and slept in (child-free for the night), so when I woke up my routine was completely jumbled. I was feeling lazy and didn’t want to cook so a banana and Apple Pie Larabar was my breakfast…
