Hello All. Happy sunny Monday to everyone!
I have really let the ball drop on my blogging. I have been SO VERY BUSY!!! I am going to try to be more consistent again.
I hope all of the mothers out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day. I enjoyed a wonderful lunch with the family, celebrating my beautiful mom. 🙂
My workouts have been going pretty well. I haven’t gotten up early lately to work out before work. 😦 I need to get to it again, but have been up late doing some work and getting up that extra hour would kill me. LOL.
I have been consistently going to boot camp and BodyBlade. I am really loving BodyBlade. It’s definitely not as hard as boot camp, but you can tell it’s working some wonders on the arms! 😉
So, a friend and I are doing a plan our trainer gave us. It involves a LOT of eating (good… I like eating!). I actually started this plan back in August, but after about 6 mos or so was not as strict with it. So… due to the fact that summer is rolling around soon, my friend and I decided to get more committed to our “eating right” again.
The Plan – You eat every 3 hours – This is intended to keep your metabolism going. You are eating a TON of protein (your weight, in grams of protein) per day.
Here’s kinda how a typical day works:
- 5:30 am – protein & complex carb
- 8:30 am – protein & complex carb
- 11:30 am – protein & complex carb
- 2:30 pm – protein & veggie
- 5:30 pm – protein & veggie
- 7:30 or 8:30 – protein & veggie
You don’t want to eat anything two hours before bed. You also get a CHEAT DAY!! 🙂 YAY!!!!
Sometimes it’s hard to stick to the every 3 hours, there’s days when you just simply cannot eat at your “allotted time.” That’s okay… but for the most part, you stick with the plan to keep the fire burnin’.
For me, this involves a lot of egg whites! I hope my friends will tell me if I start bawking like a chicken! 😉
The meals are very simple to plan (seriously think egg whites and whole grain toast or turkey sausage and a sweet potato), and easy to do…
It can get a little boring, but oh well. It really is a healthy and clean way to eat.
Questions of the Day:
- If you are a mom, how was your Mother’s Day?
- Do you follow some type of “eating plan” and if so, what is it?
