My macros have since slightly changed, as they should, to reach which ever goals you are trying to reach. Mine changed as a result of a weekend full of bad decisions. Apparently it is not advised to drink a case of beer by yourself in the course of two days if you are looking to achieve a 6-pack. Abs! I'm talking about abs, not another 6-pack of beer.
Here is what I ate yesterday and it kept me right on track with where I need to be.
For breakfast I made a Kodiak power cake waffle and topped it with a little smear of butter and 1.5 tablespoons maple syrup. I honestly cannot get enough waffles and pancakes - so good!

Not too long after breakfast I was ready for my first snack. I went out running for day 21 of my running streak in the morning and this usually results in hunger knocking in my belly all day long. I opted for a key lime crumble Chobani flip. The key lime crumble and haze craze are my two favorite flavors of theres. I also tried to chug a big glass of water - I am beyond terrible at drinking water.

On Sunday I made a big batch of Spanish 'rice' quinoa (there is no rice in it) and threw a couple pounds of chicken in the crock pot. The Spanish quinoa and rice will get A and I through a couple of lunches. It's beyond tasty and has so much flavor. I find that quinoa can be very bland if you don't add enough seasonings or depths of flavors.

I won a wonderful sample package of Steve's Paleogoods thanks to Brittany at Brittany Suell. I've never been one to like jerky, but Steve's does a pretty tasty version. I really needed something substantial to get me through an evening of house remodel / repairs and one last workout before dinner. I ate half the beef jerky pack and a handful of dried strawberries.

We didn't eat dinner until almost 9pm, which is really late for us. I threw some chicken on the stove with milk and condensed cream of chicken soup and let that cook from about 6pm on. A and I were busy hanging a new (read spray painted) ceiling fan in the hallway, hung a new light fixture in the bathroom we are remodeling, and installed the new vanity top. All in an evenings work just to head to the basement for a HIIT workout. This simple dinner totally hit the spot and then I was ready for bed.

Overall, I'd say yesterday was a good day. What time do you usually eat dinner at?
