So here my last blog before we leave for Norway. To be honest, I am as stressed as a ehh…. Well I don’t know how to put it. Let’s say that it’s not allowed to say or do anything stupid to me right now, cause I will cry. Hard, loud and long….
I promised a full day of eating so that is what you’ll get today! But first a big shout out to my physical therapist, thanks for the last 2 weeks Bram! You helped me a lot!
I did a full day of eating in preparation for the European Championships. Disclaimer: I do not claim that my diet plan is THE solution. Nor that it is the best in your opinion. This is what works for me. Please keep in mind that this plan is designed to keep my strength and energylevels up, while losing weight. I am gonna be honest. January 1st weigh in was 69,9 kg guys. That means I was a little bit, or a very little bit chubby. My fatpercentage allowed me to loose weight without loosing muscle mass. And off course when loosing weight, you will always loose some muscle…. Right now my weight is on point, which means 63 kg in the morning on an empty stomach. Thanks Martijn for helping me out with my diet, you are really really great!
So this was last wednesday:
For breakfast I usually have bacon and eggs with 2 slices of bread. Lately I have cut the calories down a bit and have 2 slices of bread, with some low fat cheese, deli chicken and a boiled egg. And off course coffee. Strong black please. And tea!
While having breakfast I always always watch YouTube. My guilty pleasure is watching vlogs. And no, I am not ashamed. Absolutely love Beautygloss, Nikki Blackketer, Christian Guzman, Rob Lipset, Anna Nooshin…..
This day I had a morning training. During training I drink water and lemonade with BCAA’s. Lately I am using zero calorie lemonade, cause I like my lemonade very sweet and it saves the calories now 😉 Halfway training I also eat a banana.
And then after training…… Questbar time. I prefer ‘real’ food. But right now this gives me the protein for not too many calories. And I like them. A lot.
Lunch: Overnight oats, with low fat yoghurt, some Optimum Nutrition Protein and blueberries with some greens on the side.
As an afternoon snack I made some protein pancakes. I knew I would be on the road, so I prepared them in the morning. Fail to prepare, prepare to fail. As I said before, I prefer ‘real’ food. So when I do not have to be under 63, I will replace this with a slice of bread with chicken or eggs, or ricecrackers with chicken. But for now, this will have to do.
For dinner I had white fish, broccoli and brown rice…. I absolutely loved this meal!
And my last meal of the day: I admit, it does not look pretty at all I know. It looks like a bowl of shit. But it does taste nice! Some cottage cheese (in Dutch: kwark), with Optimum Nutrition protein and Brinta. I believe that’s a more typical Dutch thing, so I am not even sure of the translation. It is used to make porridge, like oats….
So that’s it guys….. Full day of eating!
