Friday Faves

HAPPY FRIIIDAAAY! 

Here are  a few of my favorite things from the week! 

I was suuuuuper excited when I got MuscleTech's new vanilla birthday cake NitroTech. I opened it to smell it first thing, and I new at first sniff that it was gonna be good. And I was not disappointed! 


I am loving this light swiss cheese spread right now! It's delicious on my Trader Joe's sprouted wheat bread. 


I also had it on my post workout pumpkin toast this week, topped with a banana. SO good. I love bananas so much! 


Spent some time in my favorite spot this week. I can't tell you how happy I am to have some sunshine and warmer weather to enjoy being outside. 


So after leg day this week I decided to try Chick-fil-a's "ice dream" cone, and it was deeeLISH. It's been so long since I've had a cone after a workout, but it will definitely be happening more often. At only 160 calories, and 28 grams of carbs, you can't beat it for a post workout treat. 



I'll leave you with a few of my favorite articles that I've read lately:

  1. Oooh, I've been wanting to ask you if you taste any difference between MuscleTech Platinum Whey (Vanilla Cake) and the new birthday cake one?? I really like the Vanilla Cake - but is the other one something BETTER??

    Thanks! ~Jen

    1. Well, I actually didn't like the Vanilla Cake Platinum whey! The birthday cake NitroTech tastes totally different to me, but I like it way better. That's just my preference though!

  2. That birthday cake whey looks AMAZING - I need to get me some!!

    I love your philosophy on lifting and diet btw, being more relaxed and not getting caught up with numbers. If you had weight to cut though, how would you go about it? I'm bad for trying to drop weight and possibly undereating, so I end up overeating some point in the week and ruining any progress I have made!

    1. I don't see myself ever cutting lol. BUT if I did for whatever reason, I think I'd track macros for a while and just slowly lower calories. So I'd make sure to still eat enough and not restrict any food group so as not to feel deprived, but just make sure that I'm in a slight calorie deficit. Also would keep more of my food and carbs around my workout.

  3. Ha Yeah, I was talking completely hypothetically - you do not need to cu!! As a ball park figure, for someone who walks ~1 hour a day and lifts 4 days a week, does 1800 calories sound good for a cut?

    Thanks for the advice Lindsay :) Keep up the great blogging!!

    1. I really can't give a number because it's so different for everyone and also depends on how much you're currently taking in. I'd start by just cutting back 100-200 calories a day.
      And thanks! :)
