Okay, so I just got caught up on journals. I really do need to come on here more .
It looks like everyone is doing really good.
As far as I go.... I really don't have much to say LOL. Everything is going pretty good. I'm almost completely over what I had. The only thing that I'm working on is getting my eating back up to 5-6 meals a day so that I can get back to running. I miss that ;( right now I'm only eating 1-2 small meals because I'm just not hungry. I know its from being sick and not eating those 2 weeks so I just need to force something down every few hours.
I will be doing my meal planning and prep for the next 5-6 days today. This is something I used to do when I was a workout addict (hehe). Basically, I will cook and prepare most of my meals for the week so I can just heat them without having to do much. This makes it a lot easier to stick to clean eating and saves a lot of money if you like to eat out. I mostly do chicken, some steak and lots of veges and salads. I will also make some fruit smoothies with almond milk and freeze them so they are ready to eat. Yummy. I'm going to try your last recipe JD! My smoothies usually just consist of fruit (frozen from Costco because its way cheaper in bulk) and almond milk or skim milk. I sometimes put in protein powder if I couldn't get enough meals in or i had a hard workout and was really hungry but not usually. I usually eat a lot of calories and not a big fan of protein powder.
I average around 2300-3000 calories a day when I'm eating healthy and am exercising. I can usually lose 2-4 pounds a week following that calorie count because I still have a little ways to go as far as weight loss. Being sick these last few weeks has dropped me almost 15 pounds. I'm thinking I'll gain some of it back when I go back to eating 5-6 times a day but not sure ? I have been drinking a ton of water during this all so I don't think it's water weight but we will see. I didn't think it was possible to lose that much weight in a little under 3 weeks without exercising!
Other then that, I've got nothing else going on. Thanks for reading
