It was not easy to keep my fat intake this low on a day when I didn’t follow the PST. Protein Shake Template.
I was immersed in a leadership development summit this week. Not a good time to be drinking protein shakes…better to eat with the people. We’re trying to build a team here, so breaking bread together is part of the process.
There were drinks. Good times.
Another day with plenty of access to all-you-can-eat food. The breakfast spread was awesome. I wanted to eat about six of the breakfast wraps…especially because I was a bit hungry from some of the drinks the night before, AND, I did a 6AM Soul Cycle class (it sucked, never again). Lunch was similar - huge spread, all kinds of good shit. Cookies. I avoided all of that shit today and stuck to my plan. I didn’t even need to get extreme, I just made the best choices and kept the overall size of the portions pretty small. It helped that instead of being bored sitting through slide shows, we were actually up and doing shit all day. We were at an Improv theater going through a bunch of improv drills. Good stuff.
I am obviously locked into a pretty good groove to be able to keep macros and calories so low today, without following the PST. Protein shake template.
Back on the PST tomorrow. I need to keep it super clean this weekend, because next weekend, I’ll be at a 4-day meeting where there will be unlimited buffet meals for breakfast and lunch, and then dinners at awesome restaurants every night. Not gonna pretend that I’ll be able to come out of next week with squeaky-clean macro averages. I should give myself a little buffer by staying low this weekend.
When my day is NOT filled up by big buffets and fancy dinners, every meal is an opportunity to strengthen my habits. Those habits are critical. My not-so-secret weapon.
Is it Spring Break yet? Is there a photo shoot? I’m ready. The leanness indicators are starting to get fun to watch. Not sure why they call them “quads”, because I seem to have 5 or 6 of them right now. Cool separation.
