I've been trying to get my leg day calories to around 2500, but I'm not currently tracking so it may be a little under that. I try to just increase my portions slightly on leg day.
Someone on Instagram asked if I worry about getting in enough veggies. My answer? No. I don't. There was a time when I did, but I no longer stress about it anymore. I despise them and am not going back to the days when I would literally choke them down with water. I do eat more vegetables on rest days, and I also have green smoothies, potatoes, and fruits, so I think I'll be okay even if I don't eat pounds of vegetables a day. That's just the way it's going to be, and it's not something I'm going to let bother me.
As always, I'm not concerned about being super lean, and I've gained maybe a pound in the last few months. My main priority right now(and forever) is eating foods I love, feeling full and satisfied, and fueling my workouts. I have a beach trip coming up in a couple of weeks, and I'm not changing anything with my diet, abs or no abs!
