Food Today


22 Days until the Arnold! :-) Yep, I'm still bouncing off the walls and giggling at odd (and mostly inappropriate) times. 

So yesterday was my official "rest day". Yoga in the a.m., then no lifting or cardio. I felt guilty! There's that all-or-nothing mentality again. But, I held firm. Had a solid dinner and ended my day with 1667 calories (35% protein, 35% carb, 29% fat and 47 g of fiber). Good nutritional prep for today. I'll be lifting & doing cardio after work. Wednesday is Chest/Triceps/Shoulders :-)  I have a love/hate thing going with the shoulder work. lol.

Anyone see the new study about eggs & cholesterol? Huh. Eggs are good for us. Who knew? (yes, that's snark). View the story here.

On to today's food... pre-dinner, my food is at 1103 calories (41% carb, 34% protein, 25% fat and 23.5 g fiber). That will jump up when I add in dinner, but I've got to get a handle on my lifting day nutrition. I need more calories before my workouts. Dagnabbit. I think I'm going to focus on more calorie dense foods on those days, since I don't want to necessarily add food (no point on forcing myself to stuff - ugh).
