Meal prep Sunday: 13 weeks

I
‘m 13 weeks from Show #1.  I’m down another pound so I’m happy with my macros and workouts right now.
I’m leaving for Vegas and feeling some minor trepidation. It’s only 4 days and we have a suite with a full kitchen so
I should be golden.  This will by my first Vegas trip without the buffet!

I’m keeping extra tight during the week and will have my high carb day on my birthday next week.

Here’s how my food is shaping up this week.
fish
The mister created some really nice baked tilpia for me. This one is thyme and mint.

T
his one is lime and parsley!  Really.. just some solid spices and baking.
I usually reserve tilipia for the end of prep, but it looked so nice at costco.  This tasted so good!
4 oz has 30g protein and only 3g fat with zero carbs.  The baking and spices make it amazing.
If I cook it, it’s watery and gross. Rob can do this stuff in his sleep. 5 min to prep this, 20 min to bake it.

Cutting : it is what it is

I am doing Flex/macro counting/IIFYM but I am NOT doing the lose 20 pounds in 12 weeks
track. I needed to focus on a slower lean. I’m keeping my food pretty tight. On a cut, only 10%
of your daily intake should be from ‘fun’ items.  I don’t even cross over into fun items right now.
I’m able to have “MORE” choices but my food is protein, veggies, fruit, for the most part.

Things I add in for now.
greek2
I love this stuff.  It’s whipped greek yogurt cream cheese. I like it on rice cakes and on those
bagel thins with egg whites.
greek1
2 Table spoons is a good amount. I use my scale!!
I will pull this closer  after vacation (12 weeks out) but this is part of my 10% . It’s so good.
I got it at Schnucks. Oh, they do make a plain one that is a brick like normal cream cheese.
It doesn’t have the extra ingredients.

chicken
Costco has these great chicken skewers.  They can be microwaved or grilled whatever.
They are so good!  This will most likely change to plain old chicken as I get near the end of prep.

And also from Costco
salmon
I love this.. with the whipped greek is great! The plain greek yogurt cream cheese works great with this.
I prefer this salmon to eating Steak. I struggle with ‘meat’ so these things are very do-able for me.

I wonder what changes I will make as I progress my prep after vacation.

My prep daily goals
1 Protein from 3-5 sources
2. Pre-post workout proper fueling
3. Fiber numbers 30-50g
4. Whole foods make up the bulk of my daily
5. EFA and super foods utilized (chia, flax, cocoa nibs, olive oil, )
6. Water: 1 gallon spring

I hope your week is fantastic!  How is your meal prep???
