sore, sore, sore – push ups – AAAAHHHHHH
but happy i’m on track, eating right, regardless of how crazy the day was today! – sunday meal prepping has become the answer to maintain my nutrition in check!
yoga extreme, what a wonderful way to start off my sunday
30 minutes of continuous stretching and holding poses that just made me feel so much better. it’s a great way to not only start the day but end the first week of my 21 day fix extreme challenge.
sunday, is also my meal prep day for the week. love getting as much of my meals prepared, cooked and packaged for the week.
wishing everyone a beautiful sunday!
17 days to go!
feeling lighter, less bloating, lots of energy! woohoo! leg day, love leg day (sarcasm)…it was definitely a tough workout. didn’t touch the lighter weights. went all out on 20# and as the day progressed boy was i regretting the choice of 20# for the full 30 minute workout LOL
yes, i am walking funny, or shall i say it’s the penguin walk (just like the penguins from one of my favorite disney movies – mary poppins). yeap that’s me, walking funny. but i know that all the soreness is worth the outcome. i’m looking forward to beautiful toned legs, on the beach getting a tan with my amazing new (tbd) bikini (my reward for sticking it out for 21 days of the competition meal plan).
today, was another good day…not great but good! it was cloudy and rainy – so not good for my mood…
lower body a little sore to start off the day, but workout was upper body – so i had to just suck it up! i want to be bikini ready for spring break, so i just have to do it. i also added 10 minute hardcore after the main workout. all core – hurt so bad and yet so good, knowing what it’s going to do LOL
chose the competition meal plan, definitely need to make a different protein for the 2nd day (it’s two days competition meal plan, then 1 day extreme meal plan, then back to two days of competition meal plan and repeat for 21 days). so fish for the majority of the day for 2 days, not very appealing for me…so need to plan thursday now
i was definitely hungry this morning, which is a bit unusual for me, but once again, it’s overall too much food, so unfortunately i just couldn’t do the last meal. i know how important it is not to miss a meal, but this meal plan is definitely for me a lot of food. (you are probably saying well you skipped the last meal yesterday and you just mentioned waking up hungry – hhhhhmmmmm could it be you skipped a scheduled meal – yes, i thought the same thing!)
i did have a smoothie for one of my meals instead of the fish, which was great!
i’m looking forward to my meals for tomorrow -oatmeal for breakfast, fruit & turkey lettuce wraps – YUMMY!
every day i get to wake up is – beautiful, today’s journey is the first of 21 days to a healthier me!
life is too short not to be at your best, today I am taking a step to be healthier!
portion controlled meals – actually are they controlled?, nah!
it’s just the way we are suppose to eat! clean, small portions throughout the day. i decided to follow the competition meal plan, so its much stricter than the regular eating plan (so no dairy, no wine 😦 etc…) but that is ok – this is what i need for me! yes, i’m putting myself first for the first time in as long as i can remember!
i will not feel guilty, instead i will look at it, as making myself healthier – it’s a gift to not only me, but my family and friends!
i’m a little sore, but not too bad, first hard core workout since late october, feeling relaxed and most importantly tummy is full.
