Yesterday’s post gave all of the details for what I ate on Monday. Today I wanted to touch on exercise during the slow carb plan. There is a great deal written on exercise in The 4-Hour Body and Ferris does an excellent job of showing you how to get really fit with the least possible amount of exercise. For me, right now, it’s not practical to do what he is suggesting. So, I keep it simple. On average, I walk 3-4 days per week, usually no shorter than 45 min at a time, sometimes as long as two hours. My pace is not too fast, I can still keep up a conversation. I love the fresh air and often it allows my baby to fall asleep. And when she doesn’t sleep and is fussy, I carry her in a front baby carrier, so I’m getting an even better work out! I also love to swim and get in to swim lengths for 30 min once or twice a week.
Here’s what I ate on Tuesday (see Sunday’s post for all the prep):
Breakfast (8 am) – scrambled eggs (1 whole egg, 2-3 egg whites) with spices, black bean mix (see Sunday prep) and organic salsa.
Morning vitamins: 2 Multi-mineral, 2 Mega Anti-oxidant, 2 Omega-3, 2 Joint Formula, 2 Vitamin D (1000 mg each) and 1 Proflavanol C100 (grapeseed oil and vitamin C).
Lunch (noon) – Arugula & spinach, quinoa salad (see Sunday prep), grape tomatoes, goat cheese (not feta), ½ avocado, Renee’s Balsamic Vinaigrette. Mini Diet Coke.
Afternoon (4 pm) – 1 hard-boiled egg, Fontaine Santé Bean Salad (contains all natural ingredients and no preservatives), mini carrots.
Dinner (8 pm) – Grilled salmon (salmon prepared that evening) or chicken breast (several cooked on Monday, so reheated) for protein. Stir fry veggies (Green Giant frozen) with red kidney beans. 1 glass of red wine.
Evening vitamins: 2 Multi-mineral, 2 Mega Anti-oxidant, 2 Joint Formula, and 1 Proflavanol C100 (grapeseed oil and vitamin C), 2 Active Calcium Plus.
Let me know if you’re finding this detailed information helpful in planning your week. Don’t forget, as a special bonus to those who do sign up for the blog, I will email you a grocery list by FRIDAY that you can print and take with you to do your shopping for the week. It doesn’t get any easier than that!
