Have any of you ever tried the My Fitness Pal App!!??
I just downloaded it and I LOVE it!!!
I think most people use it to count calories, but I have been using it to keep track of how much protein/carbs/fats I'm eating!
Apparently my first few weeks of the 30 day paleo challenge, I wasn't getting enough carbs (your body needs them for energy, especially for crossfitters)
So now I am closely monitoring my intake! I have to say its FUN!
For Breakfast I juiced all of this madness (I'm going to start adding more veggies in)
1 cucumber, watermelon chunks, 1 orange, 1 pineapple spear, 4 strawberries & some grapefruit chunks!
Lunch: 1/2 a Sweet Potato (see, getting those good carbs in!) & a Chopped Spinach Salad w/ 1 chicken breast, a dallop of hummus, & chopped almonds
Then I snacked on some homemade Apple Chips
Dinner: Pork & Bacon Stir Fry with Carrots & Brocolli!
Last but not least, My Fitness Pal Results for the Day!
I always eat a little over the calories it calculates for me to lose weight, but it's always fun to finish logging your calories for the day and see a message like this!
My protein, fat and carb breakdown for the day!!
I did really well!
My goal is to eat about 40-70 grams of good carbs a day (wheat and gluten free)
The protein and fat are pretty spot on, although I would like to bring the fat down just a bit!
Do you use fitness apps to keep on track?
The wod that was programmed for us today was the SAME as last Monday,
except unlike this picture, we did 5 sets of 5 reps this week!!
I did pretty well!
115 lbs on my back squat
65 lb press
165 lb deadlift
My numbers are slowlllllllyyy crawling up there!
