Oops, my eating well derailed just like this thread did

It's really hard to eat well while housesitting, but anyway...

I'm fasting the next couple days, just food, still drinking juices. And maybe going to detox next week. I just do the juice fast for that.

The plan is to start working out on Friday with Joe's boxing class, then saturday morning with the gals.

Then next week at least 3 times a week if possible. Once it starts getting warmer I'm going to start running everyday like i used to.

And sometimes walking the pup helps too. That's my fave workout

Anyway, any tips? I'm thinking about hitting up the local market vs. Kroger the grocery store. Seems like local stuff is cheaper.

Out = canned chef boy are dee..., ice cream, candy, cheesecake, eating out

In = fruit and veggies, spinich, carrots, turkey, chicken, beef, protein bars (girls ALWAYS need chocolate), vitamins, gatorade, milk, water, and whole grains. I bought other stuff but can't remember it.

What are yall eating these days? It's def. more expensive buying a bag of lettuce verses cans of lasagna, but hopefully it'll be worth it. I've dropped 10 pounds since December

Every morning I start off with 1 cup of mixed grains, barley, oats, etc. Then a few hours later I like to eat a capful of sunflower seeds. Lunch is my favorite meal, I'm always sure to eat some broccoli and fish, usually tilapia. Snack time for me is a spoonful of reduced fat peanut butter and an apple. Dinner is usually spinach and tuna.

A good tuna mixture for me is tuna+lemon juice+cayenne pepper+a little celery and blend or handmix.

Plus, I drink a cup of laxative tea at night, and plenty of water.

wow moose that sounds pretty great so far.

I'm definitely liking eating fruits and veggies. It's alot more fun to figure out what to eat then "another can of soup". The bad part is that thought requires more time out of the day.

I was just reading a muscle synthesis studies and it said that after an intense workout, make sure to get 8+ hours of sleep that night because the muscles recover the best from being torn up, and in turn, that will speed up future metabolism when you wake up. When you kick start that metabolism in the morning with whole grains and fruit, it's like a jump start on a car. It's ready to go.

Breakfast is my favorite meal and I typically don't watch it too closely. I love potato for breakfast and I always have a turkey sausage, egg and cheese in a whole grain wrap. The I get a side of home fries (which probably aren't that great for me but man they are gooood!

Lunch I eat chicken or fish with a pasta or/ and a veggie

Dinner I eat chicken or fish (sometimes beef) and a veggie.

My toughest things to go without are cheese. I refuse to give it up.

Before my workout I'll eat 3/4 cup of oatmeal and apple sauce mixed together. It seems to give me a ton of energy.

This is a GREAT combo for muscle synthesis, Mark. I definitely down a bit of homemade gatorade (very diluted powder), and sometimes eat a protein bar about an hour before my workouts. The way the schedule is going, we are working about 3.5 hours on Mondays and Wednesdays by taking all three classes, Womens MT, Boxing, then general advanced MT.

My typical meal schedule.

As soon as I get to work I drink a slim fast. (7am)
Around 8am I get a large blueberry muffin from the cafeteria.
Around 10am I drink an orange juice mixed with Whey Protein powder.
Lift from 11:15-12:30
Lunch varies - anything from an entire small pizza to a foot long hoagie and chocolate milk. Sometimes I'll have leftovers from the previous night's dinner.
Around 3pm I eat a yogurt or fruit cup.
Around 6pm a bowl of oatmeal.
MMA class from 6:30-8:30pm
Dinner varies but usually meat and pasta.
After Dinner, homemade ice cream that I blend with non-fat lactaid and muscle milk powder. I usually add some chocolate chips too.
Water throughout the day.

Thanks Kim,
A buddy told me about hte oatmeal and apple sauce combo and it took me about 3 weeks to figure out the right ammount for my body. Too much and I'd feel sick about halfway through class, not enough and I'd have an energy crash about 30 minutes before class was over.
last night
I forgot to add that I do a mega Whey shake 15 minutes after class is done.
