Should have started this at day one!


Recommended Posts

this is day 5 and because of severe crashing yesterday and today i need to record this here we go;

BF: two eggs, spinach mushrooms and homemade salsa, larabar, 1/8 avocado

LU: baked sweet potato, shrimp, cabbage and salsa, larabar, compliant kombucha 1/8 avocado

DI: half sweet potato, roasted brussels, half onion, grassfed beef burger patties (two small)

Work was hectic and I felt low energy, but I want to avoid the larabar emergency ever again and i need to avoid dried fruit in general. I have a nut "dragon" that sneaks up on me and today it def. did.

Walking today felt amazing, I will try to go back to some HIIT tomorrow but i know now I need to be more prepared for meals.

I am glad you acknowledge the larabar issue...they are for emergencies only.

And 1/8 of an avocado, when you had little to no other fat, does not seem like enough and that may be what contributed to you feeling low energy.

Other than that, it looks good. You are making sure to include all three of the nutrients (protein, fat and veggies) in each meal. That is good. Just try adding a bit more fat (maybe a bit more protein) and see how you feel.

I hope this helps.
