Good Morning! I got new macros from my coach Amber yesterday… I’m up to 2213 Calories a day! And down 7lbs… I can barely believe it. I remember when I was surviving on 1100kcals a day and working out 3hrs a day. Now, I’m working out 90min a day and eating 2x as much. I have so much energy & am so happy with these results that I honestly don’t even care how “fast” I run my half marathon this spring. Being HEALTHY and not having to feel guilty about eating or constantly being concerned with what I eat trumps every other fitness goal. I do have a photoshoot in 8 weeks, and am excited to be using CARVE2.0 Workouts to prep for that. They are 75-80 minutes (plus a 10-15min stretch) long and I designed them as a plan to achieve muscle definition while staying lean. I am using the runner’s plan. The workouts are free with a $21 donation to A21 ministry.
The photoshoot is for Gains in Bulk, one of the companies that sponsors me. I really love their philosophy and products. I used their newest product Agri-Pump in my workouts yesterday and today, and love it. I’ll keep using & purchasing it. (YES, I purchase my own supplements – I use my codes/links of course 😉 … my gains in bulk code is RebekahC10) . And today’s breakfast was inspired by their Vanilla Milkshake Protein Powder (super yummy).
Here’s how I made it! The macros are adjustable based on the amount of ingredients you use 🙂
Vanilla Milkshake Cauliflower Bowl with PB & Chocolate Chips
- microwave 510grams (6cups) of chopped cauliflower
- put in nutribullet and add 2 scoops Gains in Bulk Vanilla Milkshake powder and 1/4cup water
- Top with 1 Tbsp (16g) PB & 10g (2tsp) Chocolate Chips
- Optional: I also dipped in a couple rice cakes for a crunchy texture (rice cakes are not included in macros)
Macros total: 36p, 60c, 14.5f & 14 grams FIBER!!
I also had 2 GIB enzymes with my meal!
I’m still a little baffled by the reverse diet… I mean it makes sense scientifically, but if you’d told me I’d be eating twice as many calories after 20 weeks and working out half as much and down 7lbs, I would have hoped to believe you, but would have had major doubts…. But this is proof that it really works!
Hope everyone has a great week! 🙂
