I know I can do it, I just haven't wanted to all that badly since baby girl made her arrival, so I reckon making a public decree will hold me accountable. Way back when I competed in two NPC figure shows so I'm going to follow a similar workout plan to what I adhered to then and as far as 'diet', I hate the concept. I love healthy foods, I never eliminate an entire food group and I allow myself to indulge occasionally, otherwise I wouldn't just fall off the wagon, I'd take a flying leap off headed for the Cadbury egg display. I plan on sharing via weekly updates not only my progress, but my workouts and meal plan in the hopes that it can help someone else who's trudging along this journey as well. I be glad to answer any questions anyone has about getting started. I feel like since I started my new stay-at-home-mama job that I've lost touch with my personal training and group exercise base a bit. I chose that career path because I LOVED fitness and LOVED the idea of changing someone's life for the better by helping them look and feel better.
So, my plan for the upcoming week goes as listed below.
This diet is loosely based on the one I followed when I was doing contest prep for my Figure shows. I would go nuts with salads and just add as many veggies as I liked. I do use more salad dressing than I probably should, but I figure an extra tablespoon won't make or break it. I also have one breakover day a week, usually Sunday, where I eat what I want within reason. Keep in mind that you can undo a whole weeks' worth of dieting in one day, so be cautious. I find that giving yourself a cheat meal or cheat day helps keep you on the straight and narrow the rest of the time. A girl's still gotta live a little, right?
