Weekend Recap & Treat Meals
We had such a beautiful weekend!
It was a little warmer than it has been, which I LOVED! Saturday was my workout day, then we walked Asher, took down the pool(so sad!), went to church and then played a game of putt-putt afterwards.
Sunday my awesome husband made me some boards for my bench press workout Wednesday. I'm so excited to use them! I feel like a "real" powerlifter now. ;)
Sunday was another beautiful day, so we went to a local park and found a really cool spot we've never been to! It was so pretty.
Some of the meals I had over the weekend included a cheeseburger(lean, grassfed)and caramel apple(well, half) Friday, and then pizza and ice cream on Saturday. Still woke up on Sunday with some abs!
How? Well, the weekends are NOT a "free-for-all" for me, where I just eat anything I want. I pretty much eat my normal meals and then just factor in a treat or two. I don't track my macros, but I somewhat know them in my head. So on burger night, for example, the caramel apple was just part of my dinner carb source.
The pizza and ice cream was my "free" meal, or "treat" meal as I call it, which is my one meal where I don't think about portions or macros or anything. What I usually do that day is cut back just slightly on my meals that day. Nothing super restrictive, though. I definitely don't starve myself or anything crazy like that or do anything extra as far as exercise. And then usually I don't have my bedtime snack that day because I'm still full. So in the end, it all balances out!
I go right back to eating my normal meals Sunday, including this yummy dinner we had last night.
I LOVE chicken thighs! And look at all the veggies, aren't you proud? See, I don't just eat pizza and donuts. ;) Sundays are usually slightly lower carb, but not LOW carb...because at this point, I would probably die if I tried to do less than 100 grams of carbs.
Welp, that's all for now! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
