Back into the swing of it

On track for 3x weights this week and I've got a strategy for dropping the remaining 0.75kg of that kg I put on over the last 2 months.  Eat to loss (including exercise kcals) on weights days, and to maintenance (including exercise kcals) on cardio and rest days.  So 3 days a week in deficit and 4 days at maintenance.  Slow loss, but mixed up and keeping the resistance high for those fat-burning muscles.  For 2 weeks and then I have to taper for the next triathlon ;o)

Nommy salad for dinner:-

Monday went like this:-

B - greek yogurt with Bonne Maman apricot compote, 1 scoop MP Max, flaked almonds and Maca root
S - Dorset cereals bar; berries and cherries
S - 1 scoop MP Max in skimmed milk
L - salad; chicken breast, celery, lettuce, sweet pepper, pomegranate seeds, cherry tomatoes and Food Doctor herb boost
S - carrots and Waitrose houmous
S - MP beef jerky
D - salad; new potatoes, quails eggs, lettuce, peppers, chorizo, pine nuts, cherry tomatoes, mustard, honey and cider vinegar

  1. Whats the MP Max like? Is it any good? x

  2. I've got the chocolate flavour "True Whey" for post-workout shakes and cookies and cream to add into my brekkie and they are both deeeelicious! The cookies and cream is a bit sweet but makes the greek yogurt taste like many custard-style yogurts you get from the supermarket. Sometimes I mix the two for a post-workout shake and that's pretty good for a flavour change. Chocolate doesn't seem to play nicely with yogurt and neither plays nicely with hot porridge; they seem to go grainy and not mix very well.

    The biggest bonus is that it plays nicely with my stomach (unlike the Maximuscle stuff which caused me lots of problems). And a 5lb tub lasts -forever-!

  3. Sounds the same as what I have, I love that they sell it in those giant tubs!
