So someone asked me a good question. What plans and what exercise am I doing?
Welp. Lemme tell ya.
Diet wise: I eat Low carb – which means that per meal I am eating only 45 g of carbs. I know I’ve said it before but I’m saying it again. Don’t like it don’t read.
I keep track of the carbs on My Fitness Pal. Seriously if you don’t do that program? You should. Lifesaver for me. Its an app that use btw totally free.
Then I keep it low fat too. See, I have a fatty liver and need to keep things on the low part there. Not really keeping track of the fat amounts just making better choices for example: eating turkey or chicken instead of bacon, ham or beef.
Makes no diff with me, except for the fact that cheese is high in saturated fat. To know me is to know my love of cheese. I am proud to say that I’ve cut back a lot on that.
What else. I think thats it diet wise.
Now exercise wise. I’m doing a beach body program called Slim in 6. Its like an exercise program that is like a very low intense Insanity. No, lemme stop. I have no idea what Insanity is like. Oh wait! I know! Its an exercise video that reminds of Tae Bo. A very low impact version of Tae Bo….but its not even like that though. Its unique to anything I’ve ever come across.
If you want more info; please email me or message me on Facebook and I’ll get you in contact with my beach body coach. She’s awesome.
Alright, what else? I do yoga. Specifically I do Yoga With Adriene. She’s a youtube yoga instructor who makes everything so simple and understandable. She’s not heavy into the “Ommm” crap that some are into. I have no patience for that.
I love my yoga time, it really wakes me up – as it is the first exercise I do for the day.
Yeah, you read that right. First. I do 4 different exercises a day. Slim in 6 (for 56 mins), Yoga (20-30 mins), walking (30-40 mins), exercise bike (45-60 mins). If I do less than these I feel like I’ve failed for the day. Sigh. I can’t with my OCD.
So thats what I’ve been doing. I have lost a couple more inches…but I haven’t taken measurements. Just pictures…which I can’t show ya. Cause well…ya know. But I swear I’m losing more!
Current weight: 301
Goal weight: 200 – I’m reaching for it but honestly I’ll be happy with anything below 230
Dietary plans: counting calories and low carb/low fat diet; not eating after dinner, working out on an empty stomach
Workout plan: walking, exercise bicycle, yoga, and Slim in 6 program
Reason for: to be healthy and happy and there for my kids
