Good things come to those who hustle! Who’s with me? Because when you put in the work, the results will most definitely come. This week I’m sharing with you my 4-day meal plan complete with recipe ideas, macro breakdown and grocery list.

Curious how to figure out what macros you fall into? IIFYM has a great calculator. I actually used the 21 Day Fix program as a basis and then after doing multiple rounds tweaked it to my needs and body type.

Check out my spread for the week below. I always try to stick to whole natural foods for the most part. I’ll incorporate supplements when it comes to pre and post workout but I try to stay away from most processed foods.

I love eating food that nourishes my body and gives it the real energy I need. Below is a breakdown of my macros:

Missing from the picture is the 30g of cashews I have which brings my calorie total to 1,814. I can shift my food slightly and eat less or more depending on how I’m feeling that day but I love having a plan in place so I don’t deviate too far. I lift 6 days a week, do hot yoga every Sunday and can do any where from 15 minutes of HIIT cardio to 30+ minutes of steady state cardio. Here’s a sample week of my workouts:

Monday: Legs + 15 min HIIT cardio

Tuesday: Chest/Back + 30 min steady state cardio + abs

Wednesday: Shoulders/Biceps + Insanity Cardio 

Thursday: Backs/Triceps + 15 min HIIT cardio + abs

Friday: Legs + 30 min stead state cardio

Saturday: Chest/Back + body weight circuit workout + abs

Sunday: Hot yoga

Just to give you an idea about how many calories I burn.
