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 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. 

Birthday Weekend Recap

I finally turned the big 26 on Thursday (3-22-18) and wanted to share how fun the experience was this year to be around different people and share moments/memories. I don’t typically have the chance to take a  bunch of pictures when I am celebrating, but I love writing about it because this is my way of keeping them alive. 

 

Thursday was the start of my birthday and it was a huge surprise to have my mom come to the gym with a cake to wish me a happy birthday. I also, got to spend it with a few gym friends during a workout. I also went out of town to meet up with a friend and she bought me dinner for my bday 🙂

 

Friday- I worked all day, but a friend came down to spend the weekend with me from out of town, that was wonderful. 

 

Saturday- I had a dinner get together at Texas Roadhouse with friends and family members, the food was good and we shared some fun conversation. After dinner, my friend and I got invited to go out of town and to some local bars — we drove a hour away to her friend’s house and then made some stops to pick others up and headed to some bars. I didn’t get drunk by any means, but that was fine by me, I danced and had some shots and just enjoyed what life had to offer me. We got home around 2 in the morning and I had to work the next morning, so we fell right to sleep. 

 

Sunday- I woke up in pain and it sucked, I had to call off work for the first time since working for the company for 5 years in April (this April), it wasn’t planned this way, but thankfully my job understood my health condition and allowed me the day off. I slept all day pretty much, but when I woke up I tried to have something to eat and played some board games with my friend for a while & then shared some conversation and they left later that night. 

 

Overall my birthday weekend was everything I could imagine at turning 26, and I am happy I was so involved with people — I want to do a special thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday on all my social media platforms, I definitely feel blessed!
