I am still here and doing great! This past week I went to the gym 5 days in a row! I am definitely feeling it and it feels great.....well not really.....(my legs are killing me from lunges and squats)but you know what I mean. :) I am feeling toned and have more self confidence. I have a lot of weight to lose and I am just taking it one day at a time.
I am following the meals plans from the BIGGEST LOSER CLUB website. I signed up for that and have been loving it. It really helps to keep me aware of what I am eating. It keeps track of my calories, protein, fat, fiber,and carb intake. And I don't feel deprived AT ALL! YAH!
This cheese lovers favorite breakfast ~
2 oz cheddar cheese, 1 whole wheat English muffin, 1 Cup of strawberries (half slices)
Another favorite breakfast of mine is (2) 2/3 C of multi grain cheerios, 1 C skim milk, 1 C strawberries.
Lunch idea ~
10 raw baby carrots, 2 C romaine lettuce mixed with spinach leaves, salmon burger grilled and cut up, 1/4 avocado, 2 TBSP of ranch dressing(suggested KRAFT light but I only had regular), and 2 C smart pop popcorn.
I am giving myself 1 cheat day a week. I am giving myself 1 rest day a week from the gym.
Mon, Wed, and Fri are my intense cardio days.
Tues, Thurs, and Sat are my Strength Training days. On strength training days I will do a 10 minute cardio warm up first.
I am also stretching before and or after every work out to help with my flexibility.
I drink at least 64 oz of water a day and on most days more than that. I am one thirsty momma! This is the bottle that helps me stick to drinking lots of H2O!
