Bulk Meals, Here I Come!

It’s hilarious how the more determined you are to do something, the more things can go wrong.  For example, I have been set to finally get my ass in gear with this whole working out and losing weight thing.  Went to the gym every morning and then BAM!  On saturday morning at the gym, I sprained my wrist.

I didn’t even feel it at first.  I was bench pressing with a free bar and realized that the 35 pounds was too heavy at first.  When I set the bar down, the left side dipped first and I kinda contorted my wrist a bit.  It didn’t hurt though.  I continued on to a 30-pound bar and kept working out for the rest of my morning.  It wasn’t until the ride home that I realized it was starting to ache.  When I couldn’t lift my gym bag, then I knew something was wrong.  So my left hand was pretty much immobilized for the rest of the weekend.

Yup.  That’s me this week, chicken typing at work because it’s hard to rotate my wrist.  It’s a lot better today but I still have to massage and wrap it for another couple of days just to be safe.  So much for weight training this week.  Just pure cardio now and for those who know me … I HATE CARDIO.

To help me out a bit more with my weight loss goals, I am following in my fiance’s footsteps in eating healthy.  Every week we “bulk” cook meaning, we make a crapload of food that’s part of his food plan and just portion everything out into his 8-12 tupperwares.  That way he knows exactly what to eat for each meal for the next 2 weeks.  I started my own bulk meals last night and I am pretty happy with myself.  I cooked myself A LOT of this lean ground beef stir fry with veggies.  I have about 6 tupperwares right now in the fridge of 1 cup rice and 1 cup of the stir fry each.  I will be eating that every day for lunch for the rest of the week.  It has everything I need – my carbs, my protein and my allocated amount of fats.  I am set!!!  For dinner, I am making a chicken ranch BLT salad for the rest of the week too.  According to “MYFITNESS PAL” app,  I am within my range of ALL my macros and I should be at about 127 pounds in 5 weeks if I keep up my meal plan and my 5 day exercise of cardio.  Not too shabby!!!  If I can get to my goal weight in 2 months, I am SOOOOOO HAPPY!!  Fitting into that wedding dress will feel so damn good!!  Man, I haven’t been this excited about my weight stuff in a very long time.  It honestly just takes time and dedication.  If my fiance can do it, I know I can.  He’s my hero when it comes to weight loss.  For him to lose 50 pounds and then get ripped/shredded in less than a year is just mind blowing.  He’s come a very long way.  We still laugh so hard when he look at old pictures of him.  As weird as it sounds … I want that again LOL.  I want to go back to how I was exactly this time last year!!  I remember even posting a before and after picture of myself on this blog!!  We will see … in a couple of months there might be a chance of me posting another one!!  Hopefully it works!

    Oh no, sorry to hear that you sprained your wrist! Right after recovering from your previous injury too! I hope it gets better soon.

    Bulk cooking sounds like a good idea, and it’s probably less work overall too 🙂 That’s awesome that your fiancé lost 50 pounds. That’s a lot! I hope you’ll reach your weight goal soon! Good luck!

    I hope your wrist gets better soon in time for you to resume your journey! I’m on a similar footing, but it’s more geared toward performance than weight loss. Though in my case, losing some body fat would improve my overall stamina, thereby improving my overal performance…so it’s a win-win! Good luck with your journey! 😀 I think it’s good to share your goals so that 1) you’ll get the support that you deserve and 2) you’ll hold yourself accountable for putting it all in the public like that. xD

    Bulk meals have their ups and downs. Sometimes I miss the cooking aspect and have to wait until I finish everything that’s already been cooked before cooking more again [unless I want these meals to rot, which I don’t]. The good thing is that they spare you from having to cook EVERY SINGLE MEAL! Sounds like you’re off to a good start with all these healthy meals! Those will definitely supplement your overall weight loss goals. Hats down to you. 🙂

    Sorry to hear about your arm! At least it sholudn’t take too long to heal, right?

    And the bulk meal idea sounds great! I used to do that…I’ve been pretty lazy and all over the place. But I have been working out to keep myself healthy while I’ve been eating shitty…hahahahaa. It’s nice that you have your fiancee’s support too. It can be really daunting to do that by yourself. 😛
