Good morning loves! I am so excited about this week’s WIAW because I have two new schedules to talk to you about today and a lot of yummy food pictures to share, so let’s get this party started!
As always, thanks to Jenn for hosting!
I have recently started to work a lot more than usual lately. Before, I was working whenever they desperately needed me as I was focusing mainly on my summer course; however, Yorkton was recently flooded which results in a lot of jobs for us! (I work for a restoration company).
Since I’m needed to work more often, my schedule has changed. Instead of spending my day at home on my studies, I spend it at work Along with the change of what I do in a day, the time I workout has also changed! I am adapting to the change very well and I kind of love hitting up the gym even earlier than usual
This is what a typical working day of life (and eating!) looks like for me…
5:45 am - I set my alarm for 5:45, but to be honest I am usually awake before my alarm goes off. It’s like my body knows when my alarm will go off on its own. Such a smart body I have…
6:00 - Breakfast time! On my working days, I have been making my breakfasts the night before and it seems to work very well for me. For the past few days I have enjoyed big pancakes to break the fast
lemon blueberry pancake
dark chocolate pancake with fresh raspberries
6:15 - Gym session! My gym sessions last 45 minutes max! It is always a weight lifting session, heavy weights, and starts my day by making me feel on top of the world!
7:00 - Post workout shake! I always refuel immediately after my workouts with a protein shake which will contain 1 scoop protein powder & fruit.
7:20 - This is when I arrive at work! I get my gear on and set out on the job!
9:00 - At 9:00 I have a chance to grab my morning snack which is a combination of a lean protein & complex carbohydrate!
12:00 - Lunch time! My lunch consists of a protein, complex carbohydrate, and a healthy fat!
3:00 - Mid-afternoon meal! This meal includes the same as lunch – protein, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats! Yesterday I had Greek yogurt, buckwheaties, and chia seeds!
5:00 - Work is done! I’m pretty dirty at this point, so I go straight home to shower!
6:00 - Dinner time! This meal consists of protein and healthy fats! Oh, and a lot of veggies! On Monday night, my family and I made lettuce wraps!
But, some times I eat out at restaurants! Like last night! I went out for sushi with a friend
9:00 - Bedtime snack! I usually have my last meal of the day at 9:00, but it all depends on when I go to bed! I’ve been going to bed earlier lately as I have to be up earlier when I work, so I have usually been eating this meal at 9:00.
This meal consists of a protein and healthy fat! I usually opt for casein protein powder & a nut butter. Last night I had casein protein “pudding” with almond butter <3
It was delicious.
So that wraps up my eats for the day, but I would like to note that this is not all I eat in a day. I listen to my body and if it asks for more fuel, I honour that. Like yesterday for an example – on Monday I trained my legs which always leaves me with a ravenous hunger the next day, so yesterday I was hungrier than usual, so I increased my portions throughout the day.
Gotta fuel bod
I would also like to add that I do not work out every day. I work out five days a week, so two days out of the week I do not go to the gym to lift weights. My eating schedule pretty much stays the same, though! See the above meals minus the post workout protein shake and that’s a rest day’s meals!
Remember, your body still needs food on rest days! That’s when your muscles grow!
A quick update on my fitness routine as this is changing too! Yesterday I finished my second program from my trainer, so a new one is on its way! I can’t wait to start it! I will receive it this weekend, so I’ll give you more details then
Have a great Wednesday!
