Getting fit for Life

Day 2 on track

Apart from smacking my head at 3:30 this morning… My day of clean eating went great…

My breakfast yesterday was Shakeology, then 1-2 hrs later sweet potato and 2 boiled eggs… Today it’s Shakeology then 1-2 hrs later egg white and sweet potato….

Today I am having pretty much the same foods… Learn meats and veggies.  Doesn’t seem exciting but they taste good and help with keeping me at a proper weight… Giving me more energy.

Yesterday wasn’t too bad but I find when I get bored I pick… So as long as I keep busy I’ll be good.

Down 2.4lbs > 116
Body fat  down .5% > 26%

Best program ever… If you think it might be for you send me a message… You are worth it!

Getting Back on Track

Today I’m getting my portion control and healthy eating back on track.    I did this before and I still have the tools to do it again. That’s the thing I love about these programs…the investment is really lifelong knowledge.  They give you tools, and show you how to use them and you have them forever.

The workouts are a pointless if I am just going to stuff myself (not always good food) and drink wine foolishly.

My meals are planned for the week and I’m going to get it done 🙂

Weight 118.4
Body fat 26.5%

Meals today – Shakeology, lean meats, veggies, eggs, sweet potato, cottage cheese…

Following the countdown to competition plan…I love it.

If I can do it so can you…what are you waiting for!

Have a good one 🙂

We haven’t bought any peanut butter or spreads ever since we invested in this blender. Here I used the twister jar to make the peanut butter….

Recipe:
Yields a little over a cup of peanut butter.

Take 2 cups of peanuts and roast at 350 to desired darkness and let cool.

Place in blender* and and blend until desired consistency.

Scrape into jar and let cool (it gets warm in the blender) before placing cover and refrigerate.

*you can most likely use any blender (maybe even a food processor) you would just need to scrape down the sides and blend a few times…

If you find that the butter is too dry you can add a little oil (a tsp at a time) to thin it out… But very rarely do you need to do that.

We even make pumpkin seed butter ❤ , sunflower seed butter, almond butter, pistachio butter, hazelnut spread (like nutella)

Give it a try and let me know how it goes.

Finished the 3 day refresh on Monday night… weighed in and did measurements first thing on Tuesday.

I had a loss of 4.6 pounds and 4 inches…🏆I only took measurements on my belly bump scar, belly button and hips.

Overall I didn’t find it too hard… First day I had a bit of a headache…Of course I wanted my munchies and carbs…steak but it was only for 3 days so I knew I could have that in no time.  I have to say the only thing is I don’t think I would do this on a weekend next time… Just because you are out doing stuff and you might get a bit weak from the change of diet… Plus if you want to socialize it would be a bit hard… Especially if you get the hangries…

Side effects I had were head ache and some gas:o…also we ate pretty much the same meals  and didn’t workout just walked around 10,000 steps daily.

Next one is in about 3 months. ..I told Brian it wasgoing to be Labor Day weekend he promptly told me off….lol😂

3 Day Refresh

On Day 1 I have to say I was impressed on how I didn’t get very hangry… There were times I got hungry once before lunch… And then before bed but I stayed up close to two hours longer than I normally do.

image

Lunch I found was the most filling…salad, berries and a the vanilla fresh shake.

At bedtime I found I had a headache… And woke up with one but had a few sips of coffee and it is gone so maybe it was caffeine withdrawal.

Day 1 – I lost 2.8 lbs around 1.5″ of my belly area.

Today I begin the 3 Day Refresh.  I am nervous and excited to see what results it will bring…especially after eating out at restaurants all last week.

Day 1 Measurements –

  • Weight 119.2 lbs
  • Bellybutton & bump at scar – 29.25″
  • Hips 37″

Breakfast was Vegan Tropical Strawberry Shakeology and some cantaloupe; now off to have a green tea

I am just back from a week-long work trip to two of our offices on the west coast…

I managed to do my PiYo every day using my Beachbody on Demand Club membership to access my purchased Beachbody workouts and just steamed them from my laptop.  I still got up around 5 am sometimes early…the time change for me was -4 hrs so it was a bit hard to adjust too

Calgary Skytower…great view to workout too

Working out in my room in Vancouver…tight fit but it worked 🙂

I did have my chocolate Shakeolgoy 4 out of the 6 days on the road…I do notice that when I don’t drink it I pick at food and nothing seems to really satisfy my hunger…so this is a good thing for when I drink it I don’t want to eat all through the day.

Now food is where I didn’t fare so well…seemed like the restaurants I went to were full of carbs…had some sushi and noodle bowls and plenty of oysters.  With my supper meals I would have an alcoholic beverage 🍷🍹 two at the most. This is a huge improvement of my past where I would sit back and drink just because…but since working out the past year I find I don’t tend do that any more :mrgreen:

Every day I also got at least 10000 steps.walking to the offices or out to supper at night…I enjoyed going out rain (I took my wet-skin rain-suit with me)  or shine just nice to be outside enjoying the sunshine and the very few flowers that i found.

Now that I am back home it will be great to get back into routine and follow 21 Day Fix meal plan; but first I am doing the 3 Day Refresh to cleanse out the toxins I had over the past week and get down to my target weight around 115 lbs…while I was away I gained 3.6 lbs…crazy!
