The Last 7 Days In…Food!

Week One of The PT Diaries, and I wanted to really nail it with exercise and food and all round goodness!

Make sure to follow me on My Fitness Pal to see my meals in more detail – I’m still posting every single day so you can keep up to date with me! I normally log every single day, so you can always see whats going down in Tiffy’s Kitchen!

Remember, I’ve been given my macros by the lovely Simone (find her here) on the basis that I am working on fat loss, and we will see at the end of the month whether the macros along with the workout plan are working for me!

Last week I said that I really wanted my macros to be on point alongside the new training I am doing… the days by themselves look pretty good, but I also like looking at a weekly round up:

YESSSHHHHH!! I am pretty damn happy with the way this week worked out! Surprisingly, I’m actually low on carbs!! Carbs?!! Of all things to be low in (when all I do is crave food lol)

Irritated isn’t the word when it comes to fat. I find it so hard to keep it down, but I really tried this week and I was so bloomin’ close!!! It’s really taught me to look at the way I cook things, meaning I sometimes opt for mashed sweet potatoes rather than wedges, or oven cooking my chicken rather than pan frying. It means planning ahead each day to make sure the macros fit, and being super careful with the food plans.

All in all, I am really super happy with this week, and I really want to carry it on for next week as well. I’m not weighing/measuring myself until the end of the month, but I hope that this fat-loss macro plan alongside my workout regime from my new Personal Trainer will work for me. EEEEK!
