Have you exercised today?

Recommended Posts

Still plugging away ladies! I just changed up my diet a bit to see if it sparks me to get over my weight loss hump. I'm actually trying to eat more! I usually stick to around 1200-1400 calories per day...but that's usually in 3 meals and just a few small snacks. Now I'm eating 5 times a day (4-200 calorie meals) and dinner is around 400. I'm down to about 115 or so and trying to just get really fit/toned for my BD pics in 3 weeks. I'm still working out about 5-6 days a week for 1.5 hrs.

 

So far so good.....I'm not hungry all the time and I feel more energized. I'm trying to eat more protein and good carb combos....so here is what I'm eating on most days: These are all of the options...I choose one from each category

 

Meal 1: 8:00; choose 1

*strawberries and carb control vanilla yogurt; venti sf hazelnut americano (200 or so)

*1 cup light cereal and light vanilla soymilk (200 cal)

*1/2 cup natural oats made with vanilla soymilk & water (200 cal)

Meal 2: 10:30/10:45

*cottage cheese and grapes (200 cal)

*cottage cheese and 5 Akmak crackers (200 cal)

*South beach high protein bar (140 cal) and 60 cal light string cheese

Meal 3: 12:30

*healthy soup (200)

*frozen meal (usually find ones around 180 cal) with frozen veggies added (200)

*low carb wrap (80 cal) with Hormel natural turkey (60 cal) lettuce, tomato, bit of balsamic salad dressing/ff mayo (200 or so)

*tuna mixed with low cal balsamic dressing on sliced cucumers or stuffed into a tomato (so yummy) (200 cal)

Meal 4: 4:00: pretty much same everyday

*organic apple with 100 cal 17gram protein shake (I want to say the are body for life vanilla flavored...really tasty)

Meal 5: 7:00

*dinner is totally random; most nights its bbq chicken/teriyaki chicken on bbq with steamed brocoli

*taco salad (healthy version with ground chicken breast)

*grilled salmon (FI fishes almost every weekend off the coast) and veggies

*mahi with mango salsa and ff sour cream (buy mahi at costco-individually frozen)

*black bean soup with fresh lime and ff sour cream--I have a recipe I make from scratch that bomb thewave.gif

 

 

That's about it....I'll let you know if it makes me lose any more weight. Like I said...I already eat about 1200 or so calories a day, this is just trying to make my body always full and burning calories. We'll see. pinkie.gif

I was supposed to go to the gym last night, but I was not feeling well at all, really nauseous for some reason. So I skipped the gym last night, but I am seeing my trainer tonight.

I have been so good with working out that its scary.lol Last night I did my crosstrainer and then I did my arms/legs/abs with weights. Today Rayden and I went for a really long walk then ran around the park and the soccer field. Ive also stopped "bad snacking" I made some yummy yogurt pops and I made ice cubes with lemonade. So if I dont feel like water I just pop 2 cubes in my glass and it gives off some great lemon flavour!! Im so proud of myself for keeping up with working out!

Going to have to take today off.. Too much work. I did work out yesterday: 20 minute run on the treadmill, and 30 minute session with my trainer. I have lost 3lbs... (not much), but I lost an inch off my chest sad.gif and an inch off my waist.. My FI told me I need to figure out how to put the inches together and take it off my waste.. and to keep the chest as it is, lol! Dream on buddy. If he wants the chest he'll have to drop the cash, and pay for some hit.gif

I went to see my trainer again last night. I just don't see the numbers on the scale moving much. I can tell that I am firmer and stronger, but I need to weight to go as well. So, I am a little stressed. I need to do more cardio on my own time and watch what I eat. With only 2 months and 1 week to go you think I would care more about what I put in my mouth, but I am having a hard time with it.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
