That 21st Food Diary…

For full foodie details, remember you can follow me on My Fitness Pal

This week I decided that I wanted try to stick to the 50/25/25 split on my macros up until my weights and measurements day on Good Friday – to see whether it would help me drop some body fat…

I sometimes takes the ‘If It Fits Your Macro’s’ approach because I don’t think I’d be able to stick to anything too strict at this moment in time because I cook for family at home and they aren’t all going to want super clean, super healthy foods 24/7. I think it would be different if I lived on my own because I’d have a lot more control of what foods are in the house (less temptations) and what I decided to put into my meal plans.

Though it doesn’t always go to plan…

So, at the end of the week…my breakdown was:

Screenshot_2015-03-29-13-51-30-1

 I am disappointment with myself, considering how well I did at the beginning of the week, but I think it proves that a normal person can’t be perfect 100% of the time, especially when social situations come into play. My plan next week is to make sure that my nutrition is reaaaally good for the week, and then it’s birthday weekend for me and Matt! As I said before, I am still going to try and track what I eat, just to see the differences between what I stick to normally, and what I would eat if I wasn’t really caring or tracking (so, what most people do).

Weights and measurements are on Friday, I’m not feeling too confident, as this month definitely hasn’t been perfect – but we’ll see!!
