So many people ask what our senior trainer eats in a day. Katie is an amazing athlete and person. Katie works hard all year, not only training and changing the lives of members in our community, but training herself.
She is always in training for something, whether it is an Ironman, The Boston Marathon, or like you, just training to live.
Above anything else, Katie loves helping other people fall in love with fitness. She is often seen nibbling on healthy snacks here and there between her training sessions.
This is from Katie – what she eats in a day:
Being a personal trainer, I am on my feet all day and am constantly in-between clients trying to scarf some food down! At work, I know that I get one chance to show people that working out can be the best part of their day, so I constantly need to be ON POINT.
A lot of people have been asking lately what I eat in a day with my busy schedule. The key for me is to prepare and plan my meals and snacks so that I can nourish myself throughout the day. On Sunday, I meal prep the snacks and lunches that I will need to sustain my energy.
4:30 am // Wake up call!
4:35 am // I drink 16 oz of water.
5:00 am // Eqq Souffle cups or Overnight oats – this is filled with healthy carbs and protein. This keeps me going and energized until my mid-morning snack!
Check out our Overnight Oats recipe here:
8:00am // Smoothie from our Healthy Living Guidebook! I will sip on this all morning.
11:30 am // A quick snack of almonds & berries
1:00 pm // Lunch is a salad loaded with veggies, avocado, and chicken or tuna. The protein gives me fuel and energy. Sometimes I will meal prep a bag of quinoa and load it. “Kitchen sink Quinoa.”
4:30 pm // Either an RX bar or apple with almond butter. Snacking consistently throughout the day on some thing that has carbs, fats, & protein is key. It is a “complete” snack
7:30 pm // Protein like Salmon, pork, chicken, or steak, lots of veggies- i’m obsessed with broccoli and cauliflower, and quinoa.
8:30 pm // Popcorn- either Boom Chicka Pop or Skinny Pop. I have popcorn EVERY NIGHT. It satisfies my sweet tooth and has healthy carbs in it!
Every day: a gallon of water and 12oz of green tea or Kombucha!
There you have it – what our senior trainer, Katie, eats in a day. Katie eats very well so that she can perform at her best, both in life and in her athletic pursuits. She follows our Habits for Massive Impact in terms of nutrition. Here they are:
It is also important to note that as long as you are on point following these guidelines 80% of the time, the other 20% of the time you can really enjoy yourself and indulge in your favorite foods and activities. And yes, Katie has days when she does not always eat like this, but when she is on point with nutrition, this is the day!
