Saturdays are family days spent together. We went to our favorite taco place and the girls did great figuring out what containers their food would fall into!! Love that they’re learning!!
We tried the beef with broccoli recipe (with stir fry veggies instead of just broccoli) and it was a hit! We had gymnastics, so I asked hubby and the 8 year old to make dinner. Hubby found the easy simple and quick and we all want to make it again.
Day 2 was GREAT! The girls are excited about combining containers and we got together to make our shopping list and pick recipes to make. We are making a mess in the kitchen at all times but it’s totally fine!
YAY for them picking foods to eat and recipes to try!
The rest of the workouts flew by. We did a lot of zoom calls on Saturday mornings to do our cardio flow workouts together. They are SO much better with friends.
After 80 Days, I learned to prioritize sleep and practice self-care. I fell in love with my foam roller and stretching and made it a part of my weekly schedule. Sometimes it’s not about the before and after pictures, it’s about learning how to improve yourself and be your best self.
The results were pretty awesome.
This is the first time I’ve ever seen some carving on the front of my core!
It’s Food Friday! This meal plan is ALOT of food by volume because it’s all whole foods instead of packaged meals.
Here’s what I eat in a day (minus a serving of fruit that went in my post workout recover)
I’m in the 1500-1799 calorie range for weight loss. At 5’9″ and 163ish pounds, it seems a little low when these workouts are burning 500-600 calories (per my Apple watch!) I’m finding myself looking at the clock to see if I can eat yet. Our trainer has empowered us to adjust up for more food if we are hungry or tired. She said most people ended the program eating in maintenance since the workouts are intense. I’m going up one bracket next week.
Honestly, I’m nervous to “mess this up” but I’m learning to listen to my body, trust my decisions, be flexible and leave behind fear, perfection and “eat less to weigh less” mentality. Now I’ll fuel my body and push to failure. Win!
Different audience today and this one did it with me. I love that the girls love to work out too.
This “diet” is seriously so much food. This is 💚❤️, 2 containers out of the 13 I eat a day. Homegrown tomatoes and a quick rotisserie chicken for a quick dinner before soccer.
Before photos ✔️
Schedule added to website workout tracker ✔️
Bracelets for containers ✔️
All the prep was done and it was time to dance! More than a few of us want to add to the program (I need more weights, I want the deluxe workouts, I’m going to double up, etc.) I decided and committed to do this round start to finish as written. I am focused on burning off fat and leaning out and super excited this is high intensity and low impact.
Woke up today to write my recap. Down 1.8lbs overnight from 1 day of containers. WIN!
