ok!!!!! Really have to get a post up! I have been so busy as usual..maybe i need to get up before workout to blog....baby steps..lol!
Workouts have been going so great! I actually lost 3 pounds after my first week! I have been very strict on no carbs and sugar...the only problem i am having is getting side tracked working and not eating enough! So hard to get six meals in!!!!! Well..to catch up on this week...our weigh in is on Tuesday mornings...lost 2 lbs this week! so I am down 5 lbs for two weeks..thought it might be more since I am eating so clean...but hey...i am happy just losing and knowing i am building muscle again! I do feel like i have lost a ton of inches..we get measured every month...so 1.5 wks and i will have an update on that! I am definitely not as sore as the first week...but everyday a muscle hurts that i didn't know i had! Sit ups have become so much easier this week too..i can already tell the hard work is paying off!!!! I love being a morning person...it really makes the day so much longer for me...which i need all the time i can get!
Speaking of eating...i Love replacement meals/shakes...i have been getting a low carb Emerald city smoothie about 5 days a week....usually for breakfast after workout.... Especially refreshing first thing in the am! So this week i have been trying something new... Shakeology. One of my dearest friends LOVES/promotes/sells Shakeology...so i thought i would take her up on the experiment for the week!
You can read about shakeology here: "This patent-pending daily nutritional shake helps your body gently eliminate toxins more efficiently while allowing for better absorption of the essential nutrients you need. A proprietary blend of digestive enzymes and prebiotics helps your body progressively eliminate the toxins that build up over time from eating today's highly processed foods.
At the same time, whole-food ingredients deliver the essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals your body needs to curb cravings, allowing your body to shed stored fat while the more than 20 different antioxidants and phytonutrients help reduce free radical damage that can lead to heart disease, heart attacks, high blood pressure, and stroke"
I have to say the chocolate is HEAVENLY!!! I have been having every morning for breakfast since monday....mix with ice/water and a little scoop of natural peanut butter...tastes like chocolate pudding! Very filling...it's pretty thick and takes me a while to drink all of it! So today ..Day 4 i start the cleanse.... this is how my week has been...and what the next three days next 3 days are going to look:
Monday 26th – 1 Shakeology for breakfast (feel free to use recipes) Normal healthy diet
Tuesday 27th – 1 Shakeology for breakfast (feel free to use recipes) Normal healthy diet
Wednesday 28th – 1 Shakeology for breakfast (feel free to use recipes) Normal healthy diet
Thursday – Saturday 29th – 31st – 3 Day Cleanse (use only Shakeology, water, and lots of ice during the cleanse)
Shakeology for Breakfast
Green Tea (Decaf)
1 Piece of Fruit
Shakeology for Lunch
Shakeology or snack before dinner, or after dinner for dessert
Dinner – Large salad with 4 oz white meat. Non-fat or light dressing (very minimal)
Lots and lots and lots of water! No dairy! If you need to, you can have two pieces of fruit instead of one. No extra sugars or additives.
