As I said in yesterday’s post, I’m going to be getting more focused on my training this month. I leaned out in May with some muscle gains (I think) but it’s time to get back and gain some muscle and fat! I’ve developed a routine that includes 2 leg days, 1 chest & shoulder, and 1 back & bis. Here’s where I am starting this bulk:
This picture was taken around 8am the morning after consuming 1,300 calories between 10pm-12am. I had chicken quesadillas with hummus and salsa, poptarts, cottage cheese, a casein protein shake, apple, 3 tbsp peanut butter, toast, strawberries, blueberries…hmm OH and 2 cups fortified almond milk! This of course was after my breakfast lunch dinner and mass gain shake (I was not doing intermittent fasting).
As you can see, when I want to do something….I do it. I know the macros I have to hit for my body. Do you think I was hungry for all that food? No. But I have goals and nothing is going to stand in my way.
- 1 Tumaros low carb whole wheat tortilla
- 1 slice Go Veggie dairy free cheese slice*
- 4.5 oz 99% fat free chicken breast
Included in my macros (weird combo but what I was craving at the time…):
- 1 tbsp Trader Joes authentic salsa
- 1/2 tomato
- 1 tbsp Tribe spicy red pepper hummus
Spray a pan with Pam and cook the chicken. Set aside chicken, clean pan, and spray again. Heat the tortilla until it begins to show a little color, flip. Add in the chicken and cheese and let sit until melted. Fold over in half and toast until desired!
*I’m lactose intolerant so I use this but the macros are similar to a full fat slice of cheese!
