Weigh in Wednesday

So it's been a hot minute since I've linked up for Weigh in Wednesday. Still no change in weight. Surprise...not.

I think I mentioned last time that I wasn't going to weigh myself until July 15...yeah about that. I did. A lot. Whoops.

Rayce and I are doing a clean eating challenge. It's not really a competition or anything but we said whoever cheats has to do the dishes for a week. We started Monday and we're going strong! Our "rules" are: no sweets (desserts), no fast food (we very rarely get fast food anyway), water, orange juice, Gatorade, and milk only. We figured out how many calories we want to eat a day (around 2300 for me) and where those calories need to come from. I'm shooting for 140g protein, 46g fat, and 356g carbs. I feel like it's going to be a pain in the ass making sure I get my calories from certain places but it needs to be done!

I made these quinoa turkey burgers tonight and they were disgusting.
But...they were only disgusting because there was a shit ton of cumin in them. Turns out...cumin is fugging nasty. Won't make that mistake again! They would be good without it.

Loving snacking on fresh fruit!

And veggies! I threw some green beans, broccoli, and squash with olive oil and Nature's Seasoning in the oven for 45 minutes and they are delish! So easy to take to work for part of a healthy lunch!

Exercise has been going really well lately, too. Tonight (I'm writing this on Tuesday night) I ran almost 2 miles at a faster pace than I had been running. I've been doing high intensity every other day(ish) and jogging on the other days. For my high intensity I put the treadmill on like 8.5 and sprint for 30 seconds then rest 30 seconds. I do this for 10-20 minutes depending on how I'm feeling.

  1. What a good idea for a personal clean eating challenge! Those veggies look excellent - I need to start roasting more but I never know what is good together.

    Thanks for linking up!
