I took pictures of some of the more notable things I ate this week, though:
Sirloin steak with a tablespoon of olive oil, paprika, chili powder, onion powder, and pepper.
Grilled chicken breast with garlic, rosemary, oregano, thyme, sea salt, olive oil, broccoli, carrots, and green beans. The little container on top is mustard for dipping the veggies in. Don't judge.
Baked tilapia with Chef Prudhomme's Blackened Redfish Magic, olive oil, yellow beans, green beans, and a carrot.
And this is my new favorite way to season veggies:
And that is a sample of my weekly eats for....
And a workout from last week, courtesy of Jay Ashman (if you guys haven't been by his blog in a while, definitely check it out!):
Front raises with a plate: 3x8 w/ 25# plate
Bradford Press: 3x10 with 30# - this was my first time doing these =)
DB Bicep curls: 3x12 with 20s
Rear delt raises: 3x10 with 7.5s
Kroc rows: 40#DB x 5,7
Unassisted chin-ups: 2x4
Tricep rope pushdowns: 3x12 with 30#
I am still weaker than I was when I started contest prep - but again, I weigh less now than I did then, and I'm also in keto. I have definitely held on to more strength than I otherwise would have by working with Jay. When I work alone, I am prone to fuckarounditis, and I also know I'd program way too much volume for myself. ;-)
