Sunday Food Prep & Menu for the Week

Bill's birthday dinner went well. We ended up with 10 people at the table, lol. Good thing I made the big batch of Enchilasagna 

Today is day 1 of my initial lean out phase, in preparation for my first Figure Competition. I've dropped my calorie intake from 1800-1900/day down to 1400/day, and begun taking Beverly's Lean Out (2 pills with meals 1, 3 and 5). I'm 21 weeks out from competition. I will get my pics and stats up this week, and Ariel's, too. I'm still with the goal of 40% protein, 35% carb, 25% fat. That may change soon, but for now, we're keeping it. Apart from the Lean Out, the only other supplements I take are the protein powder (Beverly's UMP), Beverly's Joint complex (Glucosamine/Chondroitin/MSM), calcium, Hyaluronic Acid, and Fish Oil.

Food Prep for the week...  Family menu is as follows:

Sunday - Enchilasagna with salad & banana splits (mine no-dairy) for Bill's Birthday dinner
Monday - Mini Grilled Cheese & black bean sandwiches with Tomato Soup (I'm having chicken breast & steamed veggies)
Tuesday - Baked Manicotti with Chicken (from the Clean Eating magazine -march 2011)
Wednesday - Leftovers - wrap for me (bowling  night after Muscle class)
Thursday - Chicken with Tomatillo sauce & Steamed veggies
Friday - Buffalo Chicken Nachos/Salad
Saturday - Crispy Chicken bites (from EC for Families book), steamed veggies & baked sweet potatoes
Sunday - Sloppy Janes (Clean Eating Quick & Easy book) with salad

My daytime/cooler food (and Ariel's): Grilled Chicken breast, roasted pork tenderloin, grilled london broil, hard boiled eggs, greek yogurt (2%), cottage cheese (4%), oatmeal with protein powder/ground flax, brown rice, avocado, steamer bag veggies: broccoli/cauliflower, zucchini, asparagus; fruit: bananas, apples, grapefruit, grapes, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries. Plus today I have ahi tuna :-) Schweet!

Today's cooler, including dinner (which is not pictured) hits right at goal: 1392 calories (43% protein, 34% carb, 22% fat).

Breakfast -
   Oatmeal w/protein powder, ground flax, cinnamon, and 1/2 grapefruit.  Snack 1 -1 cup 0% Chobani Greek Yogurt (plain) with 1/4 cup of granola & 1/2 cup blackberries     Lunch -   5 oz Ahi Tuna on an Earthgrains thinbun with green leaf lettuce, tomato and wasabi, with a cucumber (mini) and the other half of my grapefruit  Snack 2 - 2 hard boiled eggs and an apple  Dinner - 5 oz chicken breast with steamed cauliflower/broccoli.

What's that you see? Is that BREAD?!  Yep! Today I'm having bread. I know. Hell called and thanked me for the snow-cones :-) Seriously though, I do enjoy bread, just not much. Today's sandwich is on an Earthgrains Multi-Grain sandwich thin. It just seemed to go with the Ahi (which I couldn't resist at the store... I've been craving it, so I gave in). I do have the avocado pictured, but it's not in my fitday numbers because I'm not sure if I'll use it or not. If I do, it'll bring my stats up to near perfect (I'm a little low on fat today) - a 1/4 avocado would take me to 1461 cal, and my ratios to 41% protein, 34% carb, 25% fat.
