Today is the first day of the New Year of 2017 and everyone should be gearing up for a crowded gym tomorrow. I really wanted to get some cardio and abs in today from all the New Years drinking I did over the weekend, but time wasn’t on my side this weekend. That’s okay though, because I have that much more motivation to really kill it in the gym tomorrow. In anticipation of Kris Gethin’s 8 Week Hardcore Trainer, I got my grocery shopping done and meal prepped today. Here is what went down:
It is ideal to have a week of meals prepped, so you have everything all ready. I usually do a two week meal prep, just to save time. This involves freezing about 2/3 of the meat, since it is only good for three or four days in the fridge.
For proteins, I bought chicken breast, turkey breast, cod and tilapia. I grilled the cod, tilapia and in the process of grilling the chicken right now. I pretty much have only done grilled chicken for years, but trying to incorporate more types of proteins to get a better variety of nutrition.
For carbs, I am keeping it simple with brown rice and sweet potatoes. Usually I just do brown rice, so I am expanding my horizons a bit.
For the fibrous vegetables, I have broccoli, cucumber and celery. Usually I just do broccoli, so once again I am trying some “new” things and mixing it up a bit.
Get ready folks! Make this a year you smash your fitness goals. Tomorrow’s workout should be epic, whether I like this 8 week hardcore trainer or not, I am going to smash the weights. I might have to modify some of the exercises a bit, but will let you know tomorrow how it goes!
