Sample Macro Day + Workouts to Try [Volume 3]

Hi, guys!

We’re in Newport, Rhode Island for the annual Haupert weekend. It’s EASILY one of our favorite weekends ever, and we truly look forward to it all year long. Needless to say, I am psyched for a weekend away with our family. I’ll have a full recap next week, but, in the meantime, here is another day of eats + macro breakdowns.

I really enjoy sharing these blog posts because I actually don’t track macros every single day. Tracking for the blog helps me see where I might be falling short or going a little overboard with my choices. Hey, it happens, which is why I love having macro tracking as a tool in my toolbox! I also included a few new workouts to try – inspired by some of my own last week. It feels so good to get back into a workout groove, so I hope these give you a little push as well! Finally, don’t miss out on a few of my weekly fitness deals from around the web. I am always on the lookout for great sales on fitness/athleisure apparel, so I am more than happy to share these picks with you!

Breakfast: I started my day with my normal iced coffee combo of 2 scoops Vanilla Bean Collagen Peptides with almond milk. Since it was a gym day, I just wanted something small pre-workout so I also sliced up half of a banana with a big scoop of Teddie Peanut Butter.

Post-Workout: I wanted a combo of protein + carbs after a great CrossFit session so I mixed up a serving of SFH Vanilla Protein Powder with a little bit of OJ – a surprisingly delicious combination that tasted like a creamsicle!

Lunch: I cooked quick stir fry recipe using a couple of my favorite Trader Joe’s freezer products. I love the riced frozen cauliflower and added shrimp and a big handful of spinach to finish the dish.

Snack: It doesn’t get much easier than 1/2 an avocado plus a drizzle of Primal Kitchen Honey Mustard. So good!

Dinner: I threw together a quick meal using a chili lime chicken burger (from Trader Joe’s) with Munster cheese and ketchup + a side of roasted potatoes and kale. Delicious!

Dessert: I enjoyed a delicious pumpkin-y treat to end the evening!

Workouts to Try 

Total Body Countdown – I love a good countdown workout – they just seem to fly by! This one is a do-anywhere bodyweight workout, and you can always modify the time – so if you only have 15 or 20 minutes, try to get as many rounds as possible!

Quick and Dirty 21-15-9 – A classic CrossFit rep scheme mixed with my love for running! The combo of upper and lower body lifting with some cardio mixed in will definitely get you sweating!

Upper Body + Core Crusher – I gave you a serious lower body burner last edition, so let’s add in an upper body circuit for you to mix and match workouts (+ couple of core movements to keep that mid-section strong)!

Favorite Fitness Deals

The North Face Slacker Hooded Jacket –  I’m prepping for fall and winter and found this awesome North Face jacket on sale for 50% off. It would make a great layering jacket that’s warm, but still lightweight as you transition to colder month. I love the coral color – so cute!

Zella Live In Ombre Midi Leggings – I love the ombre color of these leggings – it’s always flattering on a variety of body shapes. I also love the length – you don’t have to worry about them being too long yet they stay put, unlike some capris I’ve owned. Plus, 50% off makes for another great steal on a quality brand!

Nike Element 1/2 Zip Top –  These Nike 1/2 zips are a staple piece in my fitness wardrobe. I love them for fall workouts because they keep me warm without overheating. And, bonus, they’re on sale at Zappos for 25% off!

Sperry Crest Vibe – I’ve always liked Sperry and these casual shoes would be super cute tossed on with a pair of jeans. They are also washable, which mean they’ll stay looking new for a lot longer! 🙂

  1. Hey Tina! I’m an RD, and I very much enjoy reading your blog for your nutrition perspective, fitness activities, and seeing how you balance it all with chronic disease and motherhood. I was wondering, is this a typical calorie intake for you on a workout day? I am just curious – no judgment. It seemed low (to me, for my body, not saying it is for yours), and I’m fascinated by the individual differences in all of us and our metabolisms, so would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks 🙂
