The Last 7 Days In…Food!

have been seriously terrible with my blogging for the past couple of weeks. It’s kinda taken a back-seat because I have had SO much going on!

Because you haven’t seen them in a while – here’s a reminder of my macro goals as they stand at the moment…

WORKOUT DAY – 1700 Cals -170g Protein / 147g Carbs / 48g Fat

REST DAY – 1485 Cals – 150g Protein / 120g Carbs / 45g Fat

I’ve been trying super hard to stick with +/- 5g on my macros each day, but there was a couple of hiccups this week with all of that. I blame the fact that I decided to make raw fudge on one of the days (so I had to try it, obviously) lol!

As always, I’m a little annoyed that I had 2 days with a bit of a blip this week, but there’s not much I can do about it now! You’ve still got to be able to live your life and have that balance, and that is what I am trying to do!

What I am happy with is the fact that for the majority of the week I managed to stick to my +/- 5g on my macros!

The off days (mainly Thursday) means that my overall percentages aren’t exactly on point, but I’ve made sure that instead of trying for the rest of the days the bring the percentages back to where they should be, I’ve just reset my mind and taken it as a completely new day – trying to keep within 5g of my macros.

Next week is more of the same, I will be trying to stick to the +/- 5g on my macros and smashing it in the gym! I’ve got my body composition test this Thursday – so the next 4 days are going to need to be absolutely perfect!

Thanks for reading guys…!

  1. Hi,

    I just wanted to say that I’ve been reading your blog for some time and really enjoy the honesty and depth that you provide about your journey. I was looking at your macros for some of the days and noticed that often times it seems to overestimate your calorie count. For example, on Thursday if you just go by your macros, you actually consumed about 200 less calories. Just thought I’d let you know. Keep up the hard work and hoping for good results on this coming Thursday!

    1. Hey!

      Thanks so much for your comment – oh that’s so strange about the macros – as I work it out using My Fitness Pal so I thought it would do it all correctly!

      Fingers crossed for Thursday – thank you so much!
