This is a seven pound difference. I thought that I would have shed the whole 15 pounds I wanted to lose but it is taking me a lot longer that I thought. I have cheated more than I have wanted and I have not gone 100%. I am either 100% on my diet or 100% on my exercise regimen. But I keep at it and I keep going on this journey regardless.
What I have been eating:
-A shit load of eggs: Hard boiled, ,egg whites, scrambled, omelets, etc.
-Greek Yogurt with fruit
-Fruit: I love bananas, grapes, and strawberries.
-Fiber One Bar
-Sandwiches: I love Flatout brand bread or I will get Orowheat Thin Bread and I always use Mustard instead of Mayo.
-Tuna: I use cottage cheese instead of mayo and use wheat thins to dip in it.
-Chicken, Chicken, Chicken: In salads, in rice & veggies, in anything! I meal prep every Sunday and there is always chicken involved.
-Salmon and Tilapia
3.) Dinner: I always eat what I make my family but opt for a healthy version. I am a firm believer that you can eat meals you want but you just need to be more smart about it. For example, instead of taco shells, I use a whole wheat tortillas or lettuce and instead of hamburger meat for the taco meat, I use ground turkey.
-Hummus & crackers or veggies
-Hard boiled eggs
I have not invested in a gym membership because at this point, it seems pointless. Not because it is important but because I feel like I can achieve results at home and it is much easier to do them at home. I do a lot of YouTube workout videos and I love Melissa Bender's workout channel. She is intense and I usually cannot get through her workouts without almost dying! I try to do a little bit of cardio at least 4 days a week even thought I HATE cardio. I try to do arms twice a week and the same with legs and I every other day, I will do a whole body workout. In all, I try to work out six days a week which does not always happen.
My goal is to lose another 7 to 8 pounds and to tone up. I of course want abs like everyone else and I want tone my arms, legs, and build a booty! By the end of June, I want to have at least lost the weight and then I will continue working on toning. In all, I am really proud of myself for not giving up because since I had Chloe, that is all I have done. I would fall off my diet and then just give up. Getting down on myself for cheating or falling off my fitness journey made me want to quit and that is just what happened. But I am hapy that has changed and I have a not giving up attitude!
