Fresh: Meals and Training

Meals were simple this week, and free of any sugar, dairy or gluten. I really wanted to eliminate sugar this week, including fruit sugars. I've noticed they dry out my skin and I hold more water weight when I have fruit. Slower digesting carbohydrates are much nicer for a lean physique.
Meal 1: 6 egg whites (3/4cup), sauteed vegetables, 1/8c creamy rice, 2Tbsp ground flax, 2Tbsp salba, 2 cups mate tea
Meal 2: 3oz tuna with 1/2c kitcheree (mung beans and rice spiced with curry)
Meal 3: 3oz chicken, 1/2c acorn squash roasted with cinnamon on the grill
Meal 4: 2c raw vegetables (mixed ie: carrots, peppers, broccoli) and 3oz chicken or tuna
Meal 5: 2c cooked vegetables, 3oz chicken, fish or pork tenderloin

Training is amped this week to gear up for the upcoming spring and summer season! Doesn't it feel good to emerge from hibernation. There is a lightness of body I've experienced since the season turned lighter and warmer. So much easier to log those cardio hours.
Monday: 45 strength/cardio intervals DVD
Tuesday: Off
Wednesday: 20 min Level 1 30 Day Shred, 40 min cardio
Thursday: 40 min cardio, 40 minute fitness class (strength and cardio)
Friday: 20 min Level 2 30 Day Shred, 40 min cardio
Saturday: 20 min Level 3 30 Day Shred, 40 min cardio
Sunday: 60 min yoga, 40 min cardio
