Welcome to my first What I Ate Wednesday! I can't believe I haven't done one of these yet. Also I can't believe I am saying that I am tracking macros again. I am on day three. If you follow me on instagram you know I have had two babies in the last two years. Yes they're 16.5 months a part and now that I am 5.5 months postpartum I am ready to get this last bit of weight off. I am exclusively pumping so I don't want to lose my supply yet.
So here is where I stand right now with macros. I have probably tracked a handful of times in the past 2 years. I stopped tracking before I had my daughter in April of 2020. My main focus this next two weeks is tracking everything I eat. I want to make sure I am eating around 2300-2500 calories a day, 140 grams of protein, and 25-30 grams of fiber daily. I will let me carbs and fat fall either way for the time being. Depending on how it goes over the next two weeks with my milk supply I might lower calories a little but remember that weight loss doesn't happen over night and it can take up to 4-5 weeks to even see a change. It is also important to take weekly-biweekly progress pictures and measurements.
Now lets get into What I Ate Wednesday
Breakfast- I had 2 Kodiak cakes blueberry waffles with 2 egg white hash brown muffins I made. Calories 408, Fat 15.5, Carbs 42.8, Protein 25.7
Morning Snacks- Almond Coconut Built Bar (Code MIRANDA10)
Lunch- Crunch wrap- 4oz ground turkey, 32g black beans, 40g avocado, 14g shredded cheese on a cut da carb wrap. Also had a Body Armor drink with it.
Calories 402, Fat 17.4, Carbs 37.4, Protein 30
Pre Workout-Nature Baker Blueberry fig bar
Post Workout- 2 rice cakes with laughing cow cheese and deli meat
Dinner- 3oz Tysons Buffalo Chicken cooked in the air fryer with Mac and cheese and asparagus cooked in the air fryer. Calories 400, Fat 17, Carbs 29, Protein 31
Night Snack- Blueberry Yogurt Bowl. 170g non fat greek yogurt sweetened with sugar free vanilla syrup, 50g blueberries, 26g granola
Calories 258, Fat 5.2, Carbs 31.5, Protein 21.4
Total Calories 2028, Fat 74, Carbs 217, Protein 142
As you can see I am under my calorie goal for the day. So what could have I done different? Ate an apple or banana with my built bar, add blueberries on my waffles at breakfast, add a veggie to lunch, probably could have add more carbs for post workout as I only had around 20 carbs, etc. This is why I love counting macros because I can see how my day went and make the changes I need. Well I hoped this helped and come back next week to see how my tracking and progress is going.
