SO big, no HUGE problem! I have always been the one to yell at my siblings along with my parents, aunts, and uncles about their caffeine addictions. I really dont think its a good thing to have to need something to wake yourself up in the morning. You should/ I should feel good enough when I wake up that I can start my day without it. BUT I NOW CANNOT. I have to drink it every day before my fasted cardio or else … I tried green tea (I drink that all throughout the day) but It does not have the same effects of coffee. I promise you that. So basically what I am saying is that I have succumbed to being an addict. I mean hey, it could be worse right?
Alright well the positive and good news is that im back on track! I didnt have a terrible weekend by any means, but it was not what it should of been when it came to my diet. I splurged a little bit on friday night ( which was not good but okay because i did the stair master, then spynga (spin and yoga), and then lifted), and then saturday I splurged a little bit with a true cheat meal (vegan cinnamon roll), and sunday was just off. I am back on track now and I am going to stick with it through my weekends. I was so mad at myself for getting off track on the weekend. I mean really? Get it together girl! I am already seeing progression though, and throughout the week I feel super lean (along with my stomach actually looking super lean too). I definitely over worked myself last week with doing spin and yoga on top of my fasted cardio and lifting so I learned my lesson and I am going to lay off a little bit on that. I am feeling much more refreshed this week, and I have a lot more energy than last week. My glutes are starting to shape up so wohoo for that 🙂
today’s workouts :
fasted cardio – 30 minutes on the spin bike + 45 minute full body circuit
lifting – leg day ( especially glutes and quads) + abs
My diet has been spot on and I am feeling good. I will check back in tomorrow. Would anyone like to see me post pics of some of the exercises at the gym or the food I am eating? Let me know!
Have a great day everyone 🙂
I am loving this whole diet and workout plan. So far I have been feeling really great, today I was a little tired but I think my body is just adjusting to the cut down on calories. I already feel leaner even though I know thats probably crazy but hey I’m going with it!
My ass has never been more sore thats for dang sure. I freakin love it! ( I am pretty sure its due to all the glute kicks I did on monday) Also my lack of stretching which I really need to improve on immediately.
My diet is pretty simple but I am trying to mix up my veggies to keep it interesting. I have also been switching up my mustards (dijon and regular) for my sauce. I know im crazy right, HA.
My diet is only around 1000-1500 calories a day but since i’m eating so many meals a day I really do feel full all day long. The protein shakes really fill me up too!
I start my day with a fasted cardio followed up with my plantfusion protein shake. I have been doing yoga or spinning after my morning cardio. I lift later in the day once I have eaten and gained back some energy.
My favorite meal everyday is my oatmeal or pancakes with 1 tablespoon of almond butter. CARBS AND ALMOND BUTTER – YUMMY!!! 🙂
Wednesday I just do cardio though, so today was a bit of a recovery day and then tomorrow I am back at it again. I am pumped for yoga tomorrow to stretch out these legs, its much needed.
Once I start seeing some serious progress I will post some pics.
Have a great night everyone! 🙂
Day 1 : So to be honest this morning I didnt get to do cardio on an empty stomach because I was woken up and told I have a dentist appointment to get to in 15 minutes .. typical. So therefore Day 1 was not off to a great start. It has been and is an absolutely beautiful day though, and I went for a nice long bike ride. I did my back day today, and 20 minutes on the stair master.
My diet has been right on today too 🙂
Breakfast : profusion protein shake with 1/2 a banana and 1 cup of unsweetened organic almond milk
Snack : 1/2 cup oatmeal with 1/2 cup almond milk
Lunch : 1 veggie burger with 1/2 a cup of peas and broccoli
Snack : 2 Rice crackers with 1 TBSP almond butter and 1 TBSP avocado
Dinner : 1/3 cup sweet potatoes, 1/2 cup broccoli, 12 asparagus
I ordered a fitness and food journal off etsy today and I so pumped to get it. I cannot wait to start tracking everything. WOHOO !
