Have you checked your macros lately? Can you say off hand how many total fat grams, total grams of carbohydrates, and total protein grams you’ve consumed in a 24 hour period! I can and have to have 30 days worth of intimate conversations with and about them, with myself, my body, my kitchen, and my coach. It’s a beautiful relationship, because I know the end result is going to be amazing!
I have always been good about food journaling, but since i hit 30 days to the stage, I have gotten so close with my macro’s relationship that we plan our futures together in black and white before the day even starts! Yeah that pic is my food journal macronutrient totals for the next 24 hours, already planned out with total macros that I have already sent to my coach for his approval! Trust the plan, trust the process!
During all of this I reflect back on how i used to have to beg clients to send in food journals and on a weekly, not even a daily basis, and always got excuses. It would frustrate the heck out of me, because there’s no room to wonder why the results are not showing up from the workouts I would give some of them if they haven’t willingly changed their diets!
I write this and shake my head. My how the tables have turned, but needless to say, nobody has to beg for mine, because I know how important it is to the overall process.
Yes, even trainers complete food journals,especially when we have our own fitness and athletic endeavors to achieve! It’s important to reaching your full potential in whatever you expect to achieve along your fitness journey, regardless of your overall goal.
You don’t have to be prepping for the main stage to get to know the Macro’s intimately. Heck just do it because you love your body and want to be mindful of what’s going into it everyday!
Until next time. ..#EatClean … #TrainDirty and #MeetYourMacros
