Monday’s and Wednesday’s prove to be my most active days. Between yoga sculpt and a tempo run, or yoga sculpt and speed workout, my Fitbit calculates I burn over 3,000 calories. My goal is to make sure to pay extra attention to my nutrition on these days, and to make sure I’m eating more, as in at least 2,000 calories. So Monday I chalked it out and I ate about 8 “meals.” We’ll see how this works…I’ll let you know if I end up gaining 10lbs!
However, this whole eating more is a lot more difficult than it seems, especially when I’m not trying to eat french fries and Big Macs, and even more so that I’m not eating much meat lately. The last thing I thought I would want to do would be come home from working out and eat dinner, and then eat again. Luckily, I’ve found something that eats kinda like a dessert. I guess this might be called Pro-Yo (protein fro-yo)? I’m not sure the actual definition of Pro-Yo…but let’s just go with that!
1 cup almond milk
1/2 frozen banana
1/2-1 cup ice
1 scoop protein powder
1 Tbsp. peanut butter
- Place everything in a blender and blend until you reach a nice and smooth folded together consistency.
- Pour in a cup or a bowl, top with any desired toppings (e.g. granola) and eat with a spoon!
Have you had experience eating more and leaning out?
