Hey bloggers! I have decided I will not be working on weekends, unless something really important comes up. Everyone needs time to relax and collect their thoughts, yes? But let’s just talk about my weekend for a minute.
I am super soar from working out. I have been doing some free weight workouts in my home, along with squats and lunges. My thighs are soooo tight! Ouchies 😦 Also, my sister has been working out with me, showing me things she does with her personal trainer–that helped a lot!
My eating has been on point. I have been prepping all my meals and eating them on time. Sometimes I cannot even finish because I feel like its always “time to eat.” This is where I am struggling. Because of my lapland, Once I eat I am full for hours, so it can be difficult trying to force down another 6oz piece of meat with veggies and rice. However, this is where I listen to my body and stop when I cannot eat anymore. That is why the first two weeks are crucial, so I can note anything that does/does not work for my lifestyle and I can alter it depending on my needs.
The good news is that I am 4lbs down since Friday when I started using SSP Nutrition products and eating clean. Also, I’ve been to the grocery store 2 times! If you are going to eat clean and prep food you must be committed– that means going food shopping almost every other day!
I have been trying to mix up the foods I am prepping because I have tendencies to get bored of the same ol’ same ol’. Some of the meals I am prepping are baked salmon with garlic and cilantro and lime, shrimp, grilled steak with black pepper and cayenne, green beans, asparagus, broccoli, brown rice, quinoa pasta, and mushrooms. Not going to lie–cutting things like salt, butter, oil and cheese out of my diet have been pretty uneventful. I do not miss these things physically, but I do mentally.
Here is a typical breakfast: its what I look forward! It’s the meal with the most flavor and the one that is the most mentally satisfying. 1/2 cup of plain oatmeal with a handful of blueberries, 3 egg whites with 1 full egg and two slices of turkey bacon.
Breakfast usually keeps me full for a while, and once I take my SSP fat burner “Thermo-9” I am GOOD for hours, which is why I struggle through my second meal everyday. I still cannot believe the progress I am having! I feel like my goal weight is a few days away 🙂
