Breakfast, Lunch, Snack

So far I've had 3 meals today. Thankfully today is also my off-day for working out so I just get to relax.

Breakfast: 2 Post Shredded Wheat biscuits, a water protein shake, and 3 cups of water
 Post Shredded Wheat Original Cereal (18-Biscuits), 15-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 4) Healthy N Fit Nutritionals - 100% Whey Pro-Am Vanilla, 2 lb powder

Lunch: One Grilled Chicken Breast, 3 Romaine Leaves Chopped up, and Balsamic Vinegar. Mixed together this makes a very tasty salad! Of course another 3 glasses of water

Snack: One Protein Shake (with milk this time), a banana, and you guessed it, 3 glasses of water.

Everything is really yummy and really healthy. I wonder what my next meal will be?

What I had for lunch

Lunch today was so simple. Why? Becuase I just microwaved everything. I had already made quinoa in the fridge, beans in the fridge, and broccoli rape from last night in the fridge. Threw em all on a plate and voila! Took 2 minutes. Water on the side of course. Grapes were for dessert.


Try this for yourself. If you've got healthy stuff already made in the fridge, just microwave it up. Even better, make a ton of something and use it throughout the week. Getting it out of the way earlier will make your week so much easier.

Today's "Interval Workout"

I had a interval workout scheduled for today on my rugby workout. However, it's raining where I am, so instead I decided to utilize my stationary bike that I have. All I would do is bike for about a minute on the bike's lowest setting, then turn it all the way to the bike's highest setting and bike hard for about 40 rotations. After I was done I'd switch it back to the lowest setting and get an active rest until I felt ready to go again (about 45 secs). I did this for 21 minutes and burned over 200 calories. Of course, nothing can beat a normal sprint workout, but if there's bad weather just do what you can. It's better than nothing! Try it for yourself, put your bike on a really low setting, bike for around a minute to get a warmup, then turn up that resistance to its highest or the highest setting you can manage to actually peddle with! Google sprinting and you will see that it is one of the best ways to burn fat, so try it today!

What I Had for Breakfast

I never used to like oatmeal, but now it has actually become one of my favorite breakfasts to have. It is quick, easy and very filling! Here's breakfast this morning:
Quaker oats, old fashioned, 2 5 lb. bags, 100+ servings 10-lb 
  • Raisins
  • Water Protein Shake (Water and whey protein)
Healthy 'n Fit 100% Whey Pro Am, Vanilla ice Cream Flavor 5-Pound Bottle Tub 
  •  2 cups of water
It's so quick and healthy you'll love yourself for doing it. Pour half a cup of the oatmeal into a bowl (trust me, 1/2 cup is plenty when it cooks). Then, fill up the oatmeal with water so that it covers the oatmeal and goes a little bit over it (add more or less depending on how thick you like your oatmeal). Put it in the microwave for 2 minutes. Make sure you watch the oatmeal so that it doesn't bubble over the top! When it's done, then you add in a handful of raisins. I don't like to add in raisins before putting it in the microwave because for me, it just doesn't taste good and takes away some of the sweetness. If you want, add in some ground flax for some good fats. Viola! Good yummy food. If you're just starting add in a splenda packet or some other zero calorie sweetener, but try to grow out of it! Getting at least one raisin in every bite sweetens up the oatmeal a lot! Add in a protein shake if you need to get protein into each of your meals in a heavy dose but don't skip the two glasses of water! This also helps keep you full and hydrates your body well from getting dehydrated overnight.

What I had for my fifth meal of the day

So this is my after dinner meal. I'm a sucker for sweets so I thought about what I could have. I didn't want just a piece of fruit and I need some protein in all of my meals so I opted for my Greek yogurt mixture. I love doing this because it tastes good, is low in calories, and is packed with protein. Added to this was a glass of water for hydration and I'm good to go for a couple hours!
