Training Update

As of December 1st, I am officially back on the skinny bitch diet! Haha Mike increased my cardio sessions by 6 - yowza!! Up to 11, 20-30 minute sessions a week, and only 2 real carb meals. The rest are all protein/veggie meals…lots of veggies!! 8-10 meals a day, one cheat meal a week. My favorite thing to cheat on right now? Fully loaded Chipotle chicken burrito with either Adam’s Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Ripple from the Cheesecake Factory, or a Peanut Butter Butterfinger (made with chocolate ice cream) Blizzard. The first week on my new diet was pretty darn rough, as I was hungry 20 minutes after eating each of my meals! My body has began adjusting, producing it’s own insulin, and I’m not nearly as famished…but still REALLY craving my cheat on Saturday!! The first week, I immediately lost 3.5 lbs. I gained 4 lbs after my cheat last weekend - lol, but I am now down 1lb lighter than I was last week before my cheat meal. We’ll see where I am at in a couple days, but so many people in the gym have been commenting on how much tighter I am looking…this after only 11 days of dieting! I’ve never had that happen before, but then again, I’ve never remained in this good of shape all off-season. Helps when I have a structured diet and exercise plan…never had that before either! I’m getting into the best shape of my life through the holidays and already seeing the fruits of my labor this off-season
