You are halfway through the week! Two more days until my cheat day. It should only be one meal but I’m working on it 😉 Cheat meals actually HELP your metabolism, crazy right?? Your metabolism has been taking it easy because you have been loading it up with good foods making it being able to kick back and relax. But just when it thinks all things are good, boom! A quarter pound cheeseburger shocks it and makes it start really working again. Eating healthy all week you really look forward to those days that you can just dive into whatever you want. It’s hard though to not let a cheat meal/day go into the next day. You take one slice of the cake and yeah we want the whole thing. But even if you do cheat the next day it’s okay! Just get back at it again as soon as you can. Another benefit of cheat meals/days, is the junk food tastes EVEN BETTER. Being bad never felt so good 🙂 Alright, so here is what I ate today:
Eggs as always topped with red hot as always (4 egg whites and one egg yolk)
Fruit smoothie: Find the recipe here
Fruit: Slices of apples and grapes
Potatoes: cubed up with cayenne pepper, olive oil and pepper sprinkled on
Protein bar: Find the difference between Pure Protein and Quest bars here.
Same as Tuesday, find recipes here.
Celery and peanut butter
Shredded chicken wrap with black beans, whole wheat tortilla, spinach, low fat mozzarella cheese, and home made salsa. You could also spread hummus on the wrap before putting on the other ingredients and place in the oven for 10 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit, for a nice crunchy wrap also.
It’s just as important to work out your backside as it is your front side. I have heard often that a lot of people will only workout what they can see in the mirror, forgetting what is behind them. This is good in some other areas of life but not when it comes to your physique 😉 When this happens your body becomes disproportionate and you will get this hunched over look. Workout that back some more and your shoulders, along with proper posture, will naturally bend back making you look a lot stronger and a better appearance. Here is what I do for my back at the gym:
