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!
