After I dropped Ethan off at school, I headed back home to continue to get things ready for all the birthday parties. This meant beginning to tidy the house. I also got laundry washed, dried, folded, and put away.
In the afternoon, I did some more studying of the new programming language I am learning
I headed back to school to pick Ethan up and we ran some more errands to get ready for his parties. We grabbed dinner on the way home which was chicken and steamed broccoli and cauliflower.
When we got home, Ethan had a nice shower and headed off to bed early. He was feeling very tired from the busy week and needed some extra sleep to help recover from his cold that he is fighting.
Thursday was a lowest day which means that there were no flax, chia, or hemp seeds in either of my superfood protein shakes. It also means that my three meals consisted of meat and green veggies only.
After Ethan was in bed, I did my other workout which was lower body. I am also happy to report that I did my posing again today! I love this new perspective that I have about my posing practice! I then had my team call and once that was done, I headed off to bed myself.
My team call was so informative this week! We learned about the importance of protein pacing throughout the day for weight release as well as for athletic performance and we also learned about the importance of eating enough food to promote both of these things as well. Most people who are working to release weight believe that if they eat too much or too often that it was have the opposite effect of what they desire. They believe that they will gain weight. While this can be true if you are eating poor quality foods such as pizza, burgers and fries, etc, when you eat nutrient dense foods your body will look after itself. We also learned that most athletes don't eat enough either. All this information is based on recent scientific studies that were done. I can tell you that for me, I eat 5 full meals per day and I continue to release weight. So this shows that people not only need to eat more, but they also need to be aware of what they are eating and when they are eating. I'd love to share these studies with you so you can see exactly what both groups ate and when. Send me a message!
