So after re evaluating myself today, I need to definitely step it up with my water intake. I hold salt so easily! Its crazy when your body fat gets low that you can see the biggest changes with the smallest things, like having salt on a piece of food.
Yesterday I ate at Chipotle and just had lettuce, steak, and veggies and they obviously throw salt on their meat. Lesson learned AGAIN!
I will be drinking 1 gallon of water from here on out. I need to cut back on my seltzer water (naturally flavored) because it does have a little sodium and I can tell easily I get a little bloated after and my fingers even swell.
I just finished my meal prep for this week and I'm ready to go!!
As you see, I will be eating the same thing EVERY day! Who thinks I'll be sick of eating chicken and egg whites by next week?? LOL
I have my moments, but honestly I have heard people want to vomit when they look at chicken and I'm not close to being there yet, so thats a plus!! :)
I am actually pretty proud of how good my food looks for the week! I have fresh veggies I made into kabobs and they are amazing!!
Not going to lie, I kicked butt with my cooking lol!!
You may be wondering, are my hubby and kids eating this too?? Well, my kids will eat the chicken, but I made lean meatloaf and whole wheat turkey sausage pasta for them with light Alfredo sauce!! Gotta please everyone and come to a happy medium! I still only took about 3 hours total (not even) to prepare everything!
Onto my weight training and exercise! I have been doing cardio 2 times daily 30 minutes each.. One when I first wake up, and the other 30 minutes right after my weight training. I am lifting weights 5 days/week and my cardio is every day! My cardio is keeping my heart rate around 130-140 BPM. Burn fat calories baby!
This is a bathing suite and although I do not have strings covering my back (bikini top) I'm still not showing anything... I am trying to show my progress with my back! I am so excited that I have made improvements with my V shape in my back! I never thought my waist can look small like this!! Im use to having no curves and my top matching my waist and bottom!! GO ME!! Now, to keep this going!!
At Gold's 12 weeks out... You can tell I had a lot of sodium... GRRR it makes me feel like Im taking a step back! :( YES, this was actually the same day as the pics above! CRAZY HUH??
|Time to put my game face on and move forward!|
