Macros Log Day One

Nutrition Goals 

Back again for another post, this time it is for my macro’s log. I have finished up the day with all my meals & nutritional data. In the previous post I went over my macro goals for moderate and light activity days and my overall health and fitness goals. At the end, I will post what the macro goal was (light or moderate) and then post my overall calories, protein, carbs and fats compared to goal. I currently use a food scale & MyFitnessPal app to stay on top of things. If you would like to connect with me via the app, feel free! Enjoy!

P.S Mind you, my eating schedule times are odd because I work two jobs & one of the jobs being third shift, so I have to eat at times that I wouldn’t normally on certain days of the week. I do however pack my lunch for work– which helps with my eating habits. If you have ever worked third shift, then you would know how difficult it can be to eat after certain times and the risk of gaining more weight because of it. I usually pack light but filly foods. 

12AM Meal – Snack (during work)

  • Kroger carb master yogurt (raspberry flavor) 
  • Kroger Simply Classic Trailmix (13 pieces) 

Now for starters, I know many people will mention that greek yogurt is a better choice, but I am not a fan of plain greek yogurt unless it is mixed with something else and that all depends on what the something else is, so if anyone has ideas for that, please feel free leave the comments down below.

This was a light day of activity, no cardio. 

My results: 

  • Total calories: 1447 (under goal)
  • Total carbs: 152.2g (under goal)
  • Total fats: 66.4g (over goal)
  • Total protein: 67.7g (under goal)

Light activity MACRO goals:

  • Calorie: 1876 
  • Carbs: 220g
  • Protein: 132g
  • Fat: 52g

The butter is what got me on the fats today, which I will need to be more aware of for next time or find and alternative. It is normal for me to be under in protein usually and I am always shocked when I hit underneath my calorie and carbs for the day. I am not perfect this is all trial and error but normally I have a pretty decent routine. Still aiming to drink a gallon of water by the end of tonight.

Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit. "Don't let the fire that guides you, dim" - Shay-lon Besides the fitness stuff, I reside in Ohio, love dogs and love pizza. Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic! "I've conquered many things, but I still have much to learn about life, because nobody can know everything. & every battle is different" - Shay-lon

    1. You have total control over your mind, that’s a skill and discipline many lack and envy, while it is do-able, it takes time I am learning and many challenges to really allow yourself to be at peace, especially when life can be so chaotic. Thankyou Bella.
