Today is Sunday, the last day of work before my vacation, yeahya!
We don't have anything planned yet and hopefully it stays that way :)
So about my workouts and eating....
if you've been reading my blog then you know that about 6/7 days ago I met with a personal trainer to go over some routines at the gym. She gave me some advice on an eating plan as well. So far I have been sticking to that eating plan about 85%, it could be better but hey, im turning over a new leaf so it will take me a while to get used to it!
So the other day I was aching to weigh and I was pleasantly surprised with the #,specially after my 4th of July all-week-pig-out-,post-diet-pill-extravaganza event, it could have been a lot worse!
The eating plan is this. I'm basically cutting out a lot of carbs, I try to stick to around 100 grams a day and eat as much protein as I can hold. My workout routine is simple. Every other day I do 60mins of cardio and do 'boot-camp' or 'circuit' type workouts 2/3 days a week. Sundays will be my rest day and 'take it easy' day on the eats. ( im going to allow one meal for now)
I also added in a heavy lifting leg day and one heavy lifting upper body day because I know my body won't respond to just 3-8 lb dumb bells ( what I generally use on Boot-camp and circuit days)
I will stick with this for about 6-8 weeks and if no results are seen I will try something else!
Im not gonna lie, its hard to stay at such a low carbohydrate intake, but I seem to be doing good so far. I can remember I time when all I ate was around 25grams a day - now THAT was hard ;-)
