Sunday Food Prep, and today's 1400 calorie meal plan

Saturday was a rest day (except for the hour of awesome fun zumba!) spent scouring the malls for shoes for my dresses at The Arnold. Success! Now I just have to figure out the accessories. Sunday was Back/Biceps/Abs plus another 30 minute cardio session. Afterwards I did my grocery shopping then all my food prep.

Here's what I prepped this week:
Protein: grilled chicken breast, baked tilapia, roasted pork tenderloin, hard boiled eggs.
Complex Carbs (grain): brown rice, oatmeal
Complex Carbs (veggies/fruit):  broccoli, green beans, asparagus, snow-peas & tomatoes, black beans w/pico de gallo (homemade), sliced raw peppers, sliced raw cucumbers; grapefruit, apples, pear-apples
Fat: coconut oil, EVOO, ground flax seed

Today's cooler is lean & mean :-) Logging in with 1390 calories (including dinner - not pictured)), and an on-the-nose ratio balance of 37% protein, 33% carb, 30% fat. Right where I need to be.
Chelle's clean eating cooler - 1400 calories
Here's what you see...
Breakfast -   Oatmeal w/protein powder, ground flax, cinnamon plus half a grapefruit. 
Snack 1 - 
2 hard boiled eggs, 2 hard boiled egg whites & an apple  
 -   3 oz Chicken breast, 1/3 cup brown rice, 1 cups steamed green beans  and the 2nd half of my grapefruit.  
Snack 2 -
 3 oz grilled chicken breast, 1.5 cup sliced raw red/orange/yellow peppers  
 (not pictured) - 4 ounces pork tenderloin, 2 cups steamed broccoli w/ coconut oil, 1 cup sliced cucumber in vinegar.

***NOTE: Coolers for Bill  - Chelle's breakfast burrito,  2 hard boiled eggs, apple, string cheese, and a healthier granola bar (has 12g sugar, but it's all natural). 

Today begins my twice-a-day's cardio, final prep for the Arnold. This morning I got in 30 minutes of intervals, and tonight I have Total Body Conditioning class (1hr) followed by 30 minutes of steady state cardio. So far, my knee/quad is feeling great. A little stiff this morning in both knees, but that's the arthritis (and rainy, cold weekend).

Happy Monday!

  1. 50 sit ups each night. If you can't do the 50 in under a minute keep doing it until you succesfully do it. Once you are able to do 50 under a minute with ease make it 50 in under 50 seconds. Then so on and so on.

    PS Through this method in 3 weeks I have 4 out of the 6 "packs." i suggest you Six pack abs diet through this you get 6 packs.
