Meal Prep Mondays

Lately I've been thinking of adding more features to this blog... more features to this blog that will couple nicely with everything else that I usually post. In the past the main theme of this blog was several workouts each week with very few pictures of the workouts, with an occasional writing. Just recently there have been many more pictures that I post compared to the amount of workouts posted. People have been asking me certain questions of my diet and nutrition quite often lately so I finally decided that is now time that I start adding in some of the food I eat that helps me train harder and help me reach my goals that I always set for myself. A couple of years ago I found out that the goals I set for myself were very high and cannot be reached by only going to the gym and training hard. In order to reach the goals I set for myself I have to go hard in the gym as well as in the kitchen. So from now on you will see some nutrition posts, workout posts, workout photos post , and of course workout routines that I personally do myself. Meal prepping can be a huge factor in helping you reach your goals because if you wait until you are hungry to decide on what to make or eat you are more likely to reach for that unhealthy snack, microwave food, or head out to get fast food. By meal prepping one day a week you control what kind of food you have ready before you reach that impulsive staving mode. 

So basically this blog will be a mixture of everything that helps me reach my health and fitness goals. Of course I will not put everything on here, only a small glimpse of it. Thanks to everyone who shares my posts, my photos, and all the support. Stay tuned. Below is what I cooked for lunch today. I did not post a recipe with instruction but I just took a photo of some of the steps I took to make it. 

Meatball and Veggie Lunch
1 zucchini
1 tomato
2 asparagus
1 onion
1 red bell pepper
1 pound ground beef
 bunch cilantro
2 eggs
olive oil
black pepper
garlic salt

Sunday Workout
30 minute AMRAP:
Run 200m (800m pace)
brisk walk 100m rest

Monday Workout
6 Rounds:
15 calories on ski-erg
15 GHD Sit-ups
15 wall balls (30#)

*I will be staying away from movements such as clean and jerk, snatch, muscle ups, pull-ups, or any others that are shoulder intensive for another 1-2 weeks. Hopefully this will be enough time for my body to heal and start training all movements again.
