Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Geburtstag Uroma! Happy Birthday Oma, we love you!
Well, Week 7 is now in the books, and I am playing catch up, but here are some of the meals that I we ate this week. Grant and I have been loving eating this way. The one hour workouts are really wearing on us mentally because it seems so long, but once the 80 days is up I plan to switch back to the 30 minute workouts. However, I think we plan to continue eating this way. We really like how much more prepared we are, and especially how much healthy food we eat. We also have almost no waste as far as food goes which is a huge change from before. We hated how much food was wasted, but just never had a good game plan on how to change that.
So this is week 6, and out first ReFeed day where we get to eat more carbs with white flours and fruits to help rebuild stuff in the muscles. Refeed day was worse for me, because it helped some of my cravings come back, but all in all it was nice eat ing more fruit and “healthier” sweets and different carbs for a change. Instead of doing the meal plan break out, I figured I would just list the meals that we ate in random orders this week as more of a meal plan inspiration.
Wow, here we are at week 5 which is also the start of Phase 2. This week has been rough for me, the workouts are longer again, all of the workouts are new, and getting up at 5 when you don’t get enough sleep makes me cranky. However, I lost 3 pounds and 2.5 inches during phase 1 so not too shabby. Anyway, this phase I decided to add an extra red to my count even if I am still in Plan B due to the fact that the others on this meal plan take the beach body recover which is pretty much like a protein powder which counts as a red. Below is our meal plan which is kind of thrown together last minute. We had a lot of stuff planned on the weekend, so I feel like I am still trying to catch up.
I meant to write this post earlier, but life feels so busy lately especially with hour daily workouts and lots of meal prep. I do have to admit that I love our family routine lately. However, this past January, I was blessed enough to turn 30. I never grew up with extravagance at birthdays or birthday weeks as some of my friends do. I remember when growing up we got to pick dinner the night of birthday, we woke up to a few presents from our siblings most of them handmade and a gift from our parents. When we got older and had birthday parties, we mostly had them at home with cake, a bag or M&Ms scattered on the table as my dad’s version of decorating, and also a dinner my parents would make for my friends. I almost always picked Homemade Spaghetti and either a Black Forest Cake made by my mother or pies. We played lots of different German games, or had sleep overs with just a few friends when we were older.
