Nothing will change your eating habits more than a 4 day vacation!! We met up with our friends this weekend for a very fun and relaxing weekend. Our kids had a great time together too. The weather was beautiful!! It was so nice to be outside swimming, hiking, and playing at the park. We ate out way to much, ate in way too much, and indulged in a whole lot too much of Sugary treats. What a perfect time my friend and I had coming up with a plan that neither of us will cheat on for 9 weeks!!!!! I’m a challenge-goal girl that has a hard time sticking with the program (: With my commitment to my friend, I’ll follow it this time to a T!! I’ve also decided against the body-building contest. Instead, I will invent my own workout and diet to get my body better looking than a body builder anyway! This chick looks like something to strive for! Holy abs!
Another funny thing I tell my friends is that if they ever see me running in booty shorts they will know I’m o.k. with my body!! That’ll be an indicator if I’ve reached my goal! Here is an example:
OK…down to business! What am I actually going to do for 9 weeks? My friend and I will weigh ourselves once a week. We’re taking measurements this week and then at the end. I even talked her into the hydro-static weighing to measure our body fat before and after. I recently tested mine and I was at 19%. I’m shooting for 16% and weighing between 125-128 lbs. by July 27th. At the beginning of each week we’re going to share menu ideas. She’s a great cook and I’m sure we’ll come up with many tasty dishes that I’ll be sharing. Here are the bullet points of what we will do:
- Don’t eat anything that has more than 6 g. of sugar. (That doesn’t mean for the whole day, just whatever one thing you are eating).
- Drink at least 64 ounces of water.
- Weight workouts at least 4 days a week
- No white sugar or white flour
A few other suggestions are eating more plant based foods and protein. We both love salmon and tofu and we’ll eat a lot of that. TONS of vegetables and fruit too. I’m going to try to eat a vegetable every time I eat something. Also, eat every 3 hours and stop eating for the day at 7:30 p.m. We are giving ourselves 2 days off, which will be Father’s Day and the 4th of July!! I’m very excited to get back in shape. I really do fall out of shape, especially when my body is not feeling 100% (still having aching ribs), but I will go slow and do what I can do. Here was my breakfast for today:
1 egg, 2 egg white vege and laughing cow cheese omelet. 1 pkg. of oatmeal with 1/3 apple and WATER with my vitamins and supplements.
Coming up at 11:00 a.m., I’ll be having 2 celery sticks with peanut butter!
Here are a few pictures from the trip.
All is well! Day 1 of any diet is awesome! I’ll be posting several weight workouts soon!! I want to make them “easy to do at home” workouts!! Stay tuned and remember:
P.S. I purchased 3 Taylor Swift tickets for the concert this Saturday! I surprised my daughter with them on her birthday! I can’t wait!!
