During my last contest prep, I changed diets every month or so, and my workouts only changed 3 times in total; Jason has already changed my diet 5 times, and workouts 4 times. His theory is that the body is constantly changing, and we need to adapt our strategy based on how it's doing each week. This is just fine by me! I love the change as it keeps things fresh both physically and mentally.
I'll give you a little sneak peak of the diet:
Meal 1 - Egg whites & oat bran
|And of course, black coffee. Always coffee.....|
Meal 2 - Chicken & puffed quinoa
|I can't believe I'd never heard of puffed quinoa before! What a great breakfast cereal or baking tool it would make. I had mine with some cinnamon and water.|
Meal 3 - Tilapia & sweet potatoes
|Do you like how I put everyhing on small plates to make it look bigger?|
Meal 4 - Chicken & asparagus
|Oops, almost didn't make it in time! That little splotch is mustard.|
Meal 5 - Tilapia, green beans, and cucumber
|Plus one huge glass of Perrier|
Meal 6 - Egg whites & avocado
|With some salt, pepper, chili flakes, and cilantro|
The workouts are full-body, but with an obvious and intentional focus on my legs (specifically, my hamstrings and glutes - they need some work!!). 2 days on/1 day off. More on this once I've done each workout.
Supplements are mostly the same as before, but with the addition of DIM (diindolylmethane) which, according to the internet, aids in immune system functions, has possible linkages to cancer prevention, and improves metabolism. Should be interesting.
Happy Thursday everyone.... almost the long weekend!
