The Biggest Loser!

Hi Friends! 

It's been awhile. I am so horrible about writing here, but I'm going to try to more regularly starting with this! I plan to write about this topic every week to check in!

I recently moved over to a different job and they started a biggest loser competition and of course I jumped right on board with that. The challenge will be 8 weeks long starting today! I have been doing a really good job lately of going to the gym and hitting my workout goals, but my eating has been a little off base and I think this is the push I need to start eating healthy again! 

This is my plan:

 

Gym 5x per week (currently I'm going 3-4x per week)

I will be following the free guide provided by Alyse Scaffidi (Bite Sized Fitness). It is strength training that targets a different muscle group each day. Chest, Legs, Back, Shoulder, and Arms and sprinkle in abs 2x per week. I will also do 20 mins of HIIT cardio 5x per week.

 

Meal plan and prep (no more eating lunch out every day!)

I am going to be planning out all my meals a week ahead of time. I already do this with my dinners but need to get in a better habit of doing this with breakfast and lunch. For breakfast this week I am eating:

1/2 cup of plain greek yogurt

handful of blueberries

1/4 cup of low sugar granola 

For lunch I am eating:

1/2 bag of cauliflower Gnocchi (If you live in a state that has Trader Joe's that's where I got this from)

1/4 cup of organic marinara suace 

1 tbsp of feta cheese 

I found this receipe from Marille Wellyn. I will link her YouTube video where you can find her boyfriend creating this recipe and it's hilarious! I also follow some of her workout guides! She's pretty great! 

My dinners are different every day so here is what I'm having without the measurements (if they have recipes I will link them!):

Monday: Roast Beef Salad

Tuesday: Sweet Potato Turkey Skillet 

Wednesday: Grilled Tuna with an Asain Salad

Thursday: Dinner out for my birthday! We are going to Hibachi! 

Friday: Cheeseburgers, grilled broccoli, salad 

Saturday and Sunday: TBD but something healthy! 

 

My starting weight for this challenge is 257.7 lbs. I will update you weekly with my weight and what I've been eating and doing in the gym! 

I can't wait to see what this challenge brings me both mentally and physically!
