Happy Friday Lovelies!
It has officially been one week with Style Nerd and I have loved all your kind words, and that so many of you have come to follow along with me as I transitioned to my new blog! With my heart & wine glass full (I hope yours is too!) let me tell you all about my weekly wine-down!
This week was the start of new year resolutions and fresh starts. Well, it was also the coldest week of all time. Not really but it felt like it to me. We had low temps in the negatives, and high temps just reaching double digits, this made it way too tough to make it to the gym in the morning while having to also scrape the ice off the windows, I mean come on! So I will have to admit I decided to adjust my plans a little bit. I ended up planning some great homemade meals for lunch and dinner, trying to make sure it was easy to bring to work as well. I really focused on the food aspect, and decided next week I will get back into the gym – That’s still good right?
My dear friend recently competed, and won, her first bikini competition, so I asked for some nutritional advice. She told me all about Macros, you can learn more about that here, In short it refers to the balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fat in ones diet. I love all of these things and felt it might be a healthy way to continue eating foods I like. I am going to share an example of what I have for dinner during the week, mind you I have a little more fun on the weekends!
Rotisserie Chicken –
I grab one from the grocery and take it apart so that I can split it into multiple days uses. I remove the skin and roast that to a crispiness as a special treat to sprinkle on top of the dinner (not on the diet, but every diet needs a little something special to keep it going) I preheat the oven to 400 degrees and measure out 4oz of the chicken. I heat it all in foil that I turn into a pouch so that it holds in the moisture.
Roasted Green Beans –
I make sure to trim and wash them before roasting. I then add a little olive oil (or coconut oil) salt & pepper for taste and toss them so each one is coated before baking. I do not measure my green beans out, the more veggies the better!
Brown Rice –
I then boil up 1/4 cup of brown rice.
Well I am glad that I could at least enjoy some delicious meals this week, that are also healthy! This has all the pieces to a healthy balanced meal, and is also something that fills me up so I am not starving in just an hour. I will jump back into that gym next week, gosh good luck to me!
How have your goals been, anyone else letting the weather get the better of them, or are you all still on your planned path?
