Macro Cheat Sheet

Before we get into the list…

What are macros???

Macronutrients provide energy in the form of calories and make up the three major parts of food – carbohydrates, fat and protein.

Paying attention to your Macros is a step further into Counting Calories.

This is good to know when looking at nutritional labels of food and drinks. The breakdown is there and you can know how many calories are coming from each.

What foods fit into each MACRO?

I made this macros cheat sheet for you to save and know what category a lot of different foods fall in to.

Some are carbs. Some fat. Some are a mix of protein and carbs. Some have a good percentage of all 3.

Check it out!

I think that’s a pretty solid list of foods.

I believe we should be eating a pretty solid balance of each macronutrient. I’m aiming to hit 34% Carbs, 33% Protein, 33% Fat when tracking and logging my food.

A healthy diet should have a mix of all macros.

Life Lessons From THE BOYS

Let’s start with a little background for those that don’t know what THE BOYS are. It’s an Amazon Prime series, that is doing very well. Here’s a quick overview of the show:

It’s taking the classic superhero storyline and placed it in a real world setting.

Me and E just finished the series (in 5 days! Bingers Unite!). And in thinking about it and talking about the show and characters, I thought it’d be cool to take some lessons from the show and apply it to your life.

*Some are more serious than others*

1. Team work makes the dream work

The show is really about 2 teams. The Supes and The Boys. And when things are going best for either side, it’s usually when the respective teams are working together.

Do you have a team that helps you? That pushes you to achieve goals? To bounce ideas off? Maybe you should. Just look at the Spice Girls…

2. Let Things Go

Over and over in The Boy, characters are using anger, revenge, spite to drive them, and it never makes them satisfied or happy. Looking at you Butcher and Hughie!

You can’t let those negative emotions drive your life.

3. Fame & Money does not equal happiness

Looking at Starlight’s story, she got everything she wanted, or at least thought she wanted. And when she had it all, she was less happy than before.

Finding happiness outside of money or fame is a more fulfilling way to live your life.

4. What happens in the dark always comes to the light.

There was a long list of characters that had secrets, or hidden personas. Hughie lying, Butcher keeping secrets, Homelander not being the 100% good guy character, ATrain using drugs, to how the Supes formed to begin with.

You can’t hide things forever. Being honest, and truthful will lead to a less stressful life.

5. Cherish the moments

You never know when you will have that last time with someone. Or when something tragic could happen. Live in the moment. Spend your time with the people you like being around.

Even if that person was a lab created terrorist who can’t be killed….

*And a couple quick one:

6. Don’t have sex with strangers.

7. Don’t stand in the street to have a conversation

8. A loving family comes in many forms (Looking at that final scene lol)

Ok. I’m done. Hope you enjoyed!
