What I ate today

This morning before I did my first Turbo Fire class I had a pre workout of a sandwich slim with a bit of peanut butter and half a banana. I found these sandwich slims on accident when I was looking for wheat bread. Basically it’s bread sliced a lot thinner and you can use it for sandwiches or burgers. They’re whole wheat and are ONLY 90 calories for 2 slices. I count calories only because I want to know exactly what I put in my body and how much I’m burning. I would recommend getting these sandwich slims. When I first got them there was only one brand but last time I want I saw they are making more. These are good carbs, no white bread!

This was my post workout/breakfast I had 2 eggs with a slice of singles cheese and a whole grain tortilla. It is okay to eat an egg a day but if you have high cholesterol you might want to start with eggs whites only. I love eggs and they’re also a good source of protein. I ran out of egg whites so I just had regular eggs. On the side I also had some oatmeal with half a banana and a cup of unsweeted almond milk blended. I would say my breakfast was under 400 calories. You don’t have to count calories but if you’re looking to lose weight you have to eat a certain amount of calories a day. I don’t weigh myself because I’m not trying to lose weight I am trying to be healthy.

For lunch I had tilapia with a tiny bit of light soy sauce and Mrs. Dash chipotle seasoning. Note you don’t want to season your meat with too many ingredients. I use Mrs. Dash because it’s salt free and comes in different flavors. I had a side of cheesy brown rice I made. The brown rice I get  comes in boxes and it only takes 10 minutes to cook. I added a little bit of fat free cheese for flavoring.

For dinner I made Spanish brown rice with black beans and a turkey patty. I am still debating on working out a 2nd time tonight. Note these are all small portions. Make sure you don’t overfeed yourself. I will post the Spanish brown rice recipe soon. Keep reading!

Turbo Fire

Today was one of those days where I really let myself sleep in. I am finally up, had my pre work out meal and I am going to try Turbo Fire for the first time. Turbo Fire is an intense cardio conditioning program. I will let you know how it goes for me. These types of programs are somewhat on the pricey side but if you need a work out buddy I have he program already so no need to go purchase it. If you are really serious about doing the whole program you can find it on amazon for less. Programs such as insanity, insanity the asylum and p90x I like to incorporate throughout my whole work out routine, I don’t follow the programs as they have set out but it works for me. I like to do everything so I add these programs here and there.
