Diet Practice and Protein Prep

Disclosure...I didn't take the scale out once during Skiboot...or Mind for that matter. Actually it's been awhile since I've used the scale for a program. I'm used to portion sizes, and really it's just a matter of taking sweets and alcohol out of the equation for me to be on-diet vs. off-diet. But I figured if I'm going to train these 8 weeks with my trainees/teammates, it would be good to walk the talk. So broke out the scale for Sunday breakfast to measure out what Chen gave me for week 2. The veggies of 170 is so paltry, especially once you start throwing some water logged tomatoes to the plate.

Got some grilling done before too, so the fridge is protein supplied for a few days. Salt-free 5 pepper spice worked well for the shrimp, and some grilled chicken is a stable on program. So much easier when the food is ready to go during the week. Case in point...teammate Jean Marc showing how prepping for weekday lunches is done!

      Shrimp FTW! Throwing some of those and lobster tails on the Big Green Egg this week.

      You and I generally run parallel...delete alcohol and (in my case) pizza and I am generally on also. Add them (like I did today) and I'm off. The scale doesn't lie but like you said, the tomatoes are a LOT of H2O!

              I do batches of air fried veggies on the go which also work extremely well as long as I pre-cut my veggies over the weekend (no meat as I am vegetarian now).
