Happy Saturday!! I love weekends. (who doesn’t?!) Its funny, I coach on the weekend, but it doesn’t feel like work to me. (Is this a sign I should be a full time trainer?) It is also day 5 of bikini competition preparation.
So far, so good! I have stuck to my diet 98% (I had a bite of the BF’s turkey wrap the other night, and a bite of pork roast today). I am ok with this since the stress that I would feel from food cravings will negatively affect me more than one bite of food to quench the cravings.
I still enjoy all of my meals and feel full/satisfied all day. I wish I had a little more variety in my diet, but I am experimenting with seasonings like Mrs. Dash.
In order to give myself a little extra motivation, I am going to give myself non-food treats every time I hit a milestone in my training. At the two week mark I’ll be seeing my coach to check on progress. Instead of a cheat meal after this meeting, I will reward myself to a pedicure, or a new workout tank. Speaking of workout tanks, check out this adorable one from the BF. He’s been such a good supporter and keeps me on track with my diet (and spoils me rotten!)
Tank- Etsy (and I got my haircut!)
Workouts have been pretty solid so far. I’m still doing Crossfit for my cardio, thank goodness! I’d be bored to tears on an elliptical or treadmill! I don’t have as much energy to get started when I get to the gym (probably from the decrease in calories) but once I am there surrounded by friends, I get in the mood again.
(P.S. does anyone have a brand of protein they recommend thats not a bajillion dollars? and tastes good? Gracias)
