Just finished week 2 of the Stronglifts 5x5 program. Still trying to get my diet in check and need to add in some cardio on non lifting days but the program has been going pretty well so far.

I did the first 3 weeks at the end of last month / beginning of this month but then I went on tour and had zero chance to lift while out on the road. I am not heading out for awhile so I am busting my but with the lifting.

No idea why but it seems lately I am just sabotaging myself with the diet.
I need to make some serious changes starting tomorrow morning.

Hit the gym for the start of week 3 and eating right.

Started off right today. Had my morning protein shake with a scoop of pea/rice protein, a tablespoon of wheat grass, a tablespoon of chia seeds, and a 1/2 cups of oats (mixed in water).

Downed that and walked to the gym. I usually drive but decided that walking is obviously my better option. It's only a 20-25 minute walk and it's some extra cardio.

Pounded out the workout like a champ, drank a ton of water and then walked home.

When I get home I promptly made an "apple pie smoothie" with a scoop of protein, a handful and a half of spinach, 1 tablespoon of hemp seeds, 1 teaspoon of coconut oil, an apple, a banana, some cinnamon, 4 ounces of water and 4 ounces of almond milk.
My wife also had pancakes made but I politely declined and enjoyed my smoothie.

Going to make a big batch of quinoa, lentils and broccoli for later today.

How are you going about "trying to get your diet in check?" I mean its something so many of us struggle with, are you trying to add in more health foods, cut junk, substitute. What have you found works best for you?
I just close my eyes when I walk by the truck that sells vegan ice cream..... or im lying and I buy a cone every time I'm near it.
