WIAW/Nutrition Update

Nothing new here! I pretty much still eat the same as I have been for a while....

8:00 Meal 1(pre workout):
1/2 cup oats, 1/2 banana, 1 spoonful of peanut butter, 1 scoop MuscleTech platinum whey protein, coffee with half &half

11:30 Meal 2(post workout)
Platinum Iso-whey protein with almond milk and pineapple angel food cake with whipped cream

1:30 Meal 3
2 eggs, 2 egg whites scrambled with mushrooms and sprinkled with mozzarella cheese, 5-ish oz crockpot red potatoes

4:30 Meal 4
3 oz chicken on a small salad of  romaine lettuce with lite Italian dressing, small Fuji apple

7:30 Meal 5
1 cup rice mixed with 4 oz ground turkey(mix of 93/99%) and 2 spoonfuls of salsa

10:30 Meal 6
1/2 cup cottage cheese, 2 spoonfuls peanut butter, one rice cake

Most workouts days are pretty similar to this, I just change up my post workout meals, or maybe have a pumpkin muffin instead of an apple for my afternoon snack. 
On Friday and Saturday I have a fruit smoothie post workout. Friday I have a cheeseburger for dinner instead of turkey and rice, and then I usually have a spoonful of cookie butter or peanut butter on a rice cake after dinner and skip the bedtime snack. 
Rest days are pretty similar as well, just no post workout meal and slightly higher fats. I have not tracked calories or macros in a LONG time and don't intend to. For me, tracking is something I would do ONLY if I was struggling to maintain my weight(as in LOSING weight), OR if I wanted to lean out a bit. Neither of those is an issue right now, so I choose not to track. 
Based off of Instagram, I sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who doesn't track macros! I guess it's the "in" thing right now. Yes, I do still roughly weigh and measure some things, but there's no need for me to be obsessive about it. I know I eat enough because my weight is holding steady, and I'm good with that.
I get variety, I get to eat foods I love, I have no restrictions, no numbers to worry about, ...and that makes me happy. :)
