What I ate in a week on my diet and fitness challenge

Rachael Attard Lean Legs Program – Sunday Week 7

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about food so this week I thought I’d do something different and show you ALL MY FOOD and what I ate in a week!

Now, I have been cooking lots of the recipes from Rachael Attard’s meal plan, but this week I haven’t been very organised so I just threw together healthy meals from whatever was in the fridge.

I tried to keep the program macro guidelines in mind to ensure I had some fat, carbs and protein in each meal.

It was actually a great accountability activity for me and made me conscious of my little snacks here and there – quite a few times I went to grab a snack and was put off by the thought of having to take a photograph for the blog!

Apologies for the photo quality – I’m no photographer and you can see this is the real deal!

So that’s what I ate in a week! Less snacks than usual – recording it here definitely made me more accountable!

Frequently Asked Questions
Should I exercise before work or after?

The best time to work out is when it suits you, and you get your workout done! BUT there is nothing like a good morning workout routine.

How can I stay accountable on my nutrition and fitness program?

Accountability buddies are a great way to help you stay on track! Friends who exercise with you or even those who just support you and your goals.
