Yummity Yum Shrimp Louie! 53 g P 11 g C 10 g F What a Lovable Ratio Too! =)
Saturday, April 9, 2011
I am officially turning into a total spaz. I almost forgot to write this tonight. Today was my last serious leg workout. I did a squat rack pyramid, skier and sumo smith machine squats, unilateral smith machine squats, smith machine lunges, 4 types of walking lunges (20 lb dumbbells, 8 lb mb side twists, glute squeezes, 40 lb barbells), a massive 8 set helping of cable kickbacks, cable hip ad/abductors, prone single leg curls, and single leg extensions. Altogether it was about an hour and 20 minutes which only left me with 15 minutes for the Stairmaster. Tomorrow I need to hit triceps, biceps, shoulders, and chest plus a long cardio session. Then Monday I’ll do back and cardio. Tuesday will be the last day I can work out and I will probably do a circuit of my two favorite exercises per body part. Which means of course cable kickbacks, pull-ups, and dumbbell single arm bent over rows will be involved! =)
Why is Tuesday the cutoff? Because Tuesday I will be limited to 1 gallon of water, Wednesday 1/2 gallon, and Thursday 1/4 gallon. No, I don’t get to have other drinks beyond that. I’ve decided to water deplete. It’s standard practice in figure and I don’t want to disadvantage myself on stage after how much time and effort I’ve put in over the last 3 months. Tomorrow through Tuesday I will be carb-depleting and then I will carb load on Wednesday and Thursday. The word load is misleading here; it’s still nothing like a normal diet. Friday morning I will only be able to have sips of water and a few bites of carbs before pre-judging. Rice cakes are a popular option. I’m not happy w/o coffee, but my trainer made the smartest suggestion: take a Starbucks Via packet and mix it with only 1 or 2 oz. of hot water and take it like a shot. Smart, huh?
I love shrimp Louie salads. They’re tasty and spring weather makes me crave them. They’re high protein, low carb, and if you make your own Thousand Island like I do low-fat too. My entire dressing was ½ T mayo (yes mayo, 6 g fat) 1 T ketchup (4 g carbs) and pickle juice with black pepper. I had a massive 9 oz. of shrimp meat and then 2.5 cups baby butter lettuce greens. The whole plate clocked in at 53 g protein, 11 g carbs, and 10 g fat. Great ratio! A satisfying meal too. I would normally have added an avocado, olives, tomato, and cucumber, but not on this diet, and especially not during peak week.
Alrighty, I swear I had more interesting things to say earlier today, but they’ve escaped. It's time to rest anyways!
