Progress pictures are up!
I figured it was time to dust off the bikini and show it all since I’m 12 weeks out. I have to get my back side out eventually so maybe this will make me work extra hard! I can see little changes again this week and this makes me happy. Every little change is a step in the right direction!
I had a GREAT workout yesterday. I was going to do my 60 minutes of cardio using all three pieces of equipment like I did Friday but I changed my mind and did an Insanity DVD instead.
Man, those workouts kick my butt. There were exercises that made my face look like this:
And then there were some that made me look like this:
Aaaahahaha! After the Insanity workout, I hopped on the elliptical to cool down and then the spin bike.
My first meal was oats with protein! I was sooo hungry for this! I practically licked the bowl!
After about an hour, I drank a protein shake and then headed downstairs to lift weights. I did four sets of the following with cardio mixed in:
- Leg press (with four foot angles)
- Leg Extension
- Weighted calf raises
- Seated, weighted calf raises
Then I hopped on the elliptical for 15 minutes. I was WORN OUT by the end and ready to be out of my sweaty workout clothes!
My next meal was another bowl of oats with protein (again sooo good!). I made it extra thick like peanut butter. It was like chocolate, peanut butter oats. Mmmmmmm. I didn’t take another picture (please see above!)
Yesterday was a low carb day and I was pretty hungry. I snacked on some almonds, whole pickles and cucumbers to quiet my tummy. I also chewed Extra Dessert Delights gum, Key Lime Pie quite a bit. That gum is a life saver!
For my fourth meal, I had salmon with lemon and salt and roasted broccoli with Molly McButter.
I had no problems eating my fifth meal yesterday! I had tilapia with parmesan, garlic popcorn seasoning and roasted green beans (also with parmesan, garlic popcorn seasoning).
Justin ate Chinese food last night and that was tough. I was kind of cranky about it. I was so hungry all day and some Kung Bao Chicken with Shrimp was sounding soooo good. Not good enough, though! I am working way too hard to let a little Chinese food get in my way. I would have felt like total poo if I would have eaten that not to mention the pounds I would have gained. NO THANK YOU!
I was pretty tired last night and was fighting to stay awake at 9pm! I managed to wake back up and watch the beginning of Saturday Night Live with Justin but didn’t last very long. I was out!
The temperature is warming up around here today and I could hear melting when I let the girls out this morning! I have to go to the grocery store today, so bring on the melting! Usually, I wouldn’t dare go to the grocery store on a Sunday, but I am out of all protein sources except protein powder and fish so I am very motivated to go to the store!
