It has been almost a month since I stopped my program with 30/10 Weightloss for Life. Since then, I have gone to Hawaii, started a new job, and started a work out program!
To be honest, I might have gone a little crazy after I was done with the program. Especially in Hawaii! Bread, sauce, pasta, BURGERS, fries, chocolate, and a lot of tasty food! It was delicious, but my body HATED me!! Thankfully, my family and friends were patient with me while I moaned and had to rest while my body tried to process all of the garbage I stuffed into it. (Because we walked EVERYWHERE, I didn’t really gain any weight in Hawaii.) It was fun while it lasted, but you have to get back on track eventually.
No more monkeyin’ around though! Here is phase 2!
Weight Training and Classes: If you are like me, you probably LOVE fitness classes. Most gyms offer them for free with membership. Zumba, Total Body Fitness, Boot Camp, Map Pilates, you name it! I love it! These are my cardio work outs during the day! They don’t build up muscle mass in the way that I want, but they do pump up my heart rate!
Before classes though, I have started doing Jamie Eason’s LiveFit Training program. I have not started the eating portion, mainly because I don’t want to commit to prepping 7 meals a day 7 days a week. But I use her weight training program in the gym and then eat clean on my own at home. I am so sore. It is great!
At home I am trying to eat clean! Here is what a day might look like now:
Breakfast: Plain Greek Yogurt with Berries
Lunch: Salad with meat.
Snack: Almonds, Carrots, and a string cheese.
Dinner: Cauliflower Fried “Rice” with chicken.
I like to mix it up and actually enjoy the many different healthy foods out there! The hardest part is eating carbs that don’t make me feel terrible. YOU NEED CARBS in order to get a great work out in, but I don’t want to do it at the expense of my stomach. Rice cakes and almond butter are my favorite way to get carbs in at the moment. (Don’t get me wrong, I will enjoy a good burger with a bun, but the next few days I won’t want anything close to bread since I feel sick afterwards.)
In the next few days I will be posting “before” pictures. It is never fun posting those, but you have to start somewhere! The plan is to build 10 pounds of lean muscle and lose about 20 pounds of fat. I will still weigh more than what the whole body index thing says, but like I said in a previous post, the number on the scale isn’t the most important thing!
Until next time!
