Day 4 of my new plan

And it’s going fine.  It’s just all about planning.  Takes me a couple extra minutes to gather up my food for the day since I have specific things I need to eat all day long.  Yes I just said all day long!!!  I eat every 3 hours and nice controlled portions.  So I am alternating high carb days with a low carb day.  I wont’ give away all the details because you just need to go buy his book if you are interested but here is what I had yesterday on my High Carb day:

Breakfast: 2 egg mcmuffins with spinach, mushrooms and cheese and a banana

(I made them and here is the link http://www.kalynskitchen.com/2006/10/egg-muffins-revisited-again.html)

Snack: 1 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt, 1 1/2 cups strawberries, 1 packet stevia

Lunch: big pile of mixed greens, chicken salad (homemade with low fat mayo), 1 1/2 cups of grapes

Snack: Protein shake with almond milk and 1/2 cup raw cashew, almonds and cranberries

Dinner: quinoa pasta with italian sausage, mushrooms, broccoli, lemon juice, chicken broth and a sprinkle of parm cheese

Today’s Low carb day:

Breakfast: 2 egg mcmuffins with spinach, mushrooms and cheese and a banana

Snack: low fat cheese stick, serving of sliced deli ham

Lunch: big pile of mixed greens, chicken salad (homemade with low fat mayo), broccoli with balsamic vinegar

Snack: Protein shake with almond milk and low fat cheese stick

Dinner: Tilapia, broccoli (yes I like broccoli) and a mixed green salad with balsamic dressing

 

So see, lots of food and specific pairings of protein, fat and carbs.  Also working on my water intake.  He would like you to drink 1 gallon of water.  I came close yesterday.  I had 4 of my big shaker cup full of water so that was around 110 oz.  A gallon is 128 oz.

 

I had a great swim workout yesterday.  My unofficial swim coach gave me some endurance drills to do.  So here is what I got done, it kicked my butt in a good way.

100 warmup

100 kick

100 stroke

The rest of these are full stroke and continuous

100

200

300

200

100

100 cool down

I’m going to keep doing this workout at the beginning of the week and then do stroke/kick drills on my second workout at the end of the week.

So if I can squeeze it in (we have swim lessons for my big boy and it’s the hubby’s birthday) I’m going to ride my trainer tonight.  But as a fall back plan, I’m going to do it tomorrow.  Also I have PT tomorrow and I’ve been doing well with my pelvic tilts and working on standing with a neutral spine.  I’m excited and ready to see what else she has me do.

Finally, I found this on another blog I love – Swim Bike Mom – http://www.swimbikemom.com/ Seriously if you don’t read her blog, then you should.  I’m reading her book and LOVE IT!!!
