A few days ago I posted the diet James designed for me. I have to say that after much confusion and a few days of feeling like I was going to die, I’m feeling SO GREAT about it. At first I read 6 oz of chicken and that’s all I had….just the chicken. Then, I realized: Most herbs and seasonings have 0 calories, 0 carbs and green veggies are FREE so WHYYYYY am I boring myself to death???? I learned how to cook things that tasted AMAZING while still adhering to the caloric deficit he wants for me. So, let me walk you through a day in the life of Candace (because I know you are really anxious to know what it’s like).
5:30am- Wake up time (I know! It’s HORRIBLE and should be illegal to get up that early.)
6:00am- Get to work. (I really should eat breakfast BEFORE I begin, but my body isn’t even awake at that time.)
7:30ish- Breakfast 1/2 cup cottage cheese with 1/2 cup of grapes. (My fave fruit with cottage cheese is banana or grapes)
11:00ish- 2nd meal: 1/4 lb tilapia with sautéed onion, garlic and cilantro and lemon pepper and 1/2 cup long grain brown rice.
2:30ish-3rd meal: Banana cream protein powder mixed with water. 16 all natural roasted almonds.
3:45- Kick My Butt training session with James. This workout included 460lb leg press (2 sets of 12 reps) SEE MY YOUTUBE VIDEO!!!!!
5:00ish 4th meal: 1 egg and 1/2 cup egg whites with toasted sandwich thin (http://www.oroweat.com/thins/)
7:00ish- Took the roommate to the gym and walked her through a workout. I LOVE kicking her butt!!!! (Sort of a free training session!)
8:30ish 5th meal: 8oz ground turkey made into meat balls with tomato and basil….along with a plentiful amount of squash and zucchini.
As you can see I am eating ALLLL DAYYYYYY and only feel hungry after one of the carb heavy meals. This is quickly quieted with a large glass of Crystal Light (my fave is Raspberry Lemonade) or water.
Please do not be under the impression that this is easy for me. I have a really hard time at night. After my last meal before I go to bed I want cake, cookies, ice cream, taco bell, fried chicken, or pizza. I usually settle for a pickle. Lol…..also have a hard time at work because I am nurse, family members are always bringing in cookies or candy or something. I have to walk by with a “no, thank you.” I’m wondering how long it will be until someone brings in a veggie tray for me instead!!!!
Shall I post a sign?
