The Last 7 Days In…Food!

Sorry that my food diary didn’t go out last week. To be honest, we were too busy having fun for me to sit down and actually write the post up. As you can tell – this week we are right back to reality – and so the posts are back!!

If you want to follow along on my foodie journey, add me on My Fitness Pal. I log every day. I plan ahead and if I mess up – I’m the first one to admit it!

Unfortunately, Sunday was the day that tipped the boat when it came to nutrition. Though I did get straight back on track on Monday, the meals from Sunday night really messed with my week goals and averages:

As you can see, Sundays fat levels were WAAAAY up, pretty much messing up the rest of the week! So, instead of dropping my fat levels dangerously low over the next 6 days, I tried my best to stay as even as possible each day and fit in with my macro goals. You can see that I have managed to stick to my macro plan for workout days and non workout days too – which is fab!!

I have already started to plan out next week to make sure that my nutrition is 100% on point! I am running an event next Friday, and normally this would be the kind of week where I would say ‘it doesn’t matter what you eat now, you’ll be running around like a headless chicken so just do what you want!’. This would normally turn into a burger and chips midway through the event and Krispy Kremes or a different desert later on in the day. This time around – I’m not having it! I will be prepared with healthy foods, keep myself hydrated and make sure that I am top notch on the day!  Eeeeek !

I’m looking to have a perfect month nutritionally, so it’s really important that I stick to my goals. Wish me luck!!
