The Snow is melting so I am cooking

Even here in the south we get hit by snow so sometimes. The weather people got it right this time and at my house we received about 7 inches of snow in about a day. We are not prepared for this ever. And I did not go to the store the night before, but I was prepared with plenty of food in my deep freezer so we have plenty to eat. But now I am getting back to grind this week so here is my meal plan for this week.

Breakfast: Oatmeal with Granola, Chicken Sausage, Green Powder w/ Almond Milk

Snack: Ostrim Jerky and Nuts

Lunch: Shredded Beef Burrito Bowl w/ Brown Rice

Dinner:  Sesame Honey Chicken with Vegetables

I have started meal prepping on Monday, since I am at home already I can make sure that my food doesn’t burn. It is working at much better for me since I use that day to recover anyway and I’m stressing about how I will get it done on the weekend. Since most of my food goes in the crockpot, it only takes a few minutes while I’m working from home to get it set up and cooking.

I have been training hard for the last few weeks getting ready for the first competition of the year at the Atlanta Open next weekend. This is going to be a good year I can feel it. Got out in the snow for the first time to go open mat at Jiu-Jitsu Nation and got a lot of good work in. Felt good to get out and train hard.

It’s 2016 and I’m just getting started

So 2015 is in the rear view mirror and I am looking ahead to 2016. I have a lot planned thie year, I definitely want to compote more than I did last year and train more than I did last year. And with the added fact of knowing what my metabolism is now thanks to the Transform10on Lab here in Nashville. I am set to make the biggest weight changes this year of my life. In the last year, I have really taught myself how to cook so I am happy with what I can do now. I don’t  smoke up the house much anymore so I am pretty excited about that. So many people have asked me what I cook and what I am eating or that they like my picture so I though I would start posting on here what I am cooking for my meal preps on Sunday.

For the week of January 10th here is what I am eating:

Breakfast – 1/2 cup Oatmeal with  1/4 cup of Granola, 3 Turkey Sausage links, Greens Powder with  1 cup Almond Milk, sometime a piece of fruit

Snack 1 – Ostrim Jerky and Nuts

Lunch – Burrito Bowl – Ground Turkey, brown rice, guacamole salsa, and a carrots or apples snack pack

Snack – Might Muffins or Buff Bake Cookies

Dinner- Crock Pot Chicken Thighs with a bag of frozen veggies

If I still have calories left, I may eat some almond butter.

But this is what I am eating this week, the pictures will be on Instagram this week so check them out of my meals.

Let me know if there is anything else you want to see in these post.
