My Fiancee went to the doctor today for a normal check up only to be told she was “not skinny” by the doctor. Now my fiancee is around 5’4" 135lbs and wears size 4s which I never knew meant she wast fat?? I am at about 5’10" 200lbs.
With an upcoming marriage I have been looking more at our finances anyways and figured this is another place we can look to trim out bad foods that probably cost more anyways.
Her standard diet would be something like:
Breakfast: Fiber 1 cereal, 1 scoop of on whey protein
Teaches 5th Grade
Lunch: Turkey sandwich, fruit, low carb yogurt
Afterschool snack: some pretzels or a sandwich
Dinner: A meat (salmon, chicken, beef), a vegetable and rice/noodles
Protein drink prior to bed.
My diet is fairly similar:
Breakfast - High fiber bar/protein drink
Lunch: similar to my fiancee (tomorrow will be taco meet and carrots
Dinner: same as Fiancee
Our workouts are generally focused on total body workouts
I generally mix the rep scheme to a 10x3 and a 5/5
Monday: Bench, Front Squats, seated rows, Romanian dead lift (supersets of dips/lunges/curls)
Tuesday: 45 minutes to 1 hour easy cardio
Wednesday: Close Grip bench, Full Dead lifts, Pull ups, Partial Squats (squat to bench level) (Supersets of step-ups/curls)
(HIIT on bike)
Thursday: off (Cant miss Lost)
Friday: Incline Bench, Front Squat, seated rows, Romanian dead lifts (sometimes HIIT)
We havent been doing the workouts as hard as we probably should have, but now that we are going to get a bit more serious I wanted to make sure that we are on the right track.
Any advise or critiques are appreciated.
