First week of counting macros

After going to IIFYM.com and calculating my TDEE and using their macro calculator, I ended up changing it up a little which left me with macro goals of: 167 grams of carbs, 37 grams of fat, and 85 grams of protein.

I really enjoy counting macros! I find it fun, almost like a puzzle, to calculate what I’ll be eating each day so I hit those numbers. Depending on the day, I usually somehow end up with one category that I still need to hit but it gets hard to meet the goals because even though I might have 30 grams of carbs left, I can’t use any more grams of fat or protein which makes the food choice harder. Today though, I’m like right on it so GO ME.

For this past week, my typical breakfast looked like this:

Or I would put the egg whites and bacon on an english muffin.

I discovered the magic that is Kodiak Protein Pancake mix this week. Life changing. (Might be dramatic but IT’S SO EASY AND GOOD).

Picture of my life-changing waffles here:

Last picture I want to share is of this snack that I’ve been dying to try since they got released last year:

Verdict? Disappointed 😦 They were super crumbly and had a very…bland?…taste to them. If I was craving chips and was going to use this to try to replace them, I don’t think it would work. I’m still sort of curious to try the cheddar and sour cream ones but they’ll have to wait for a while because A. They’re 2.50 a bag B. They were sold out

I’m really enjoying this process so far and I’m excited to see if it yields some positive results for me. I’ve also started lifting as of last Monday which I already love!
