To start off week 1 on an exciting note...
SuperFit placed me in his gym ad!
|He really is Super! ;)|
Not that I had any doubts lol
It made my Bananaless Pancakes that morning less disappointing! (It's still good, just not as good!)
8 Egg Whites, 1/2 Cup Quaker Quick Oats, 1-2 Packets of Vanilla Stevia and
a Dash of Cinnamon.
During my FUrst week in preparation FU the shoot...
I switched between Pancakes and Oatmeal Bowls come breakFUst time!
|3/4 Cup Greek Yogurt and 1/2 cup Quaker Quick Oats.|
Exciting, I know!
Snack times were made up of:
1. Egg Whites with Tuna and Spinach; and
2. Baby Carrots and Allegro Cheese!
4 Egg Whites, 1 small can of Tuna and Spinach
over medium-high heat.
My drink is a Venti Iced Green Tea
(Unsweetened, no lemonade)
|1 Serving of Allegro Cheese and Rabbit FU'd.|
My FUrst Monday night dinner was had at my Mom's!
She knew I was FUllowing a difFUrent regime so...
She had Chicken and Salad on the menu!
|Ingredients FU a Lemon/Olive Oil Salad Dressing|
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, 1 tbsp of FUresh lemon juice,
1 small garlic clove (minced), 1/2 tsp. dried parsley FUlakes,
1/2 tsp. of salt and pepper.
Low Cal/Sugar BBQ sauce mixed with Char Crust Seasoning!
It's an amazing blend!
|BBQ'd of course!|
While the Chicken was cooking...
I played with Snowie....the cat! (I love cats! I'm not a crazy cat person, but I really like cats! Did I say I like cats?! Because I do, I love them.)
|We found him when he was just a kitty.|
One quick play session later...
It made FU eventFUl meals come supper time!
BBQ Chicken, Sweet Potato Chips and Steamed Broccoli.
(Check out my recipes tab FU instructions ~click~)
|Warm Beef Salad.|
|Ingredients FU my Chicken Pesto Pasta Dish:|
PAM FUried Mushrooms, Cherry Tomatoes, Asparagus,
1 tbsp. of Pesto, 1tbsp. of Sundried Tomato Pesto, Salt and Pepper to taste.
|I added sliced Chicken once the veggies were |
halfway through being cooked.
|I then mixed the melange with spaghetti!|
(Again, SuperFit's plate)
And just so you know (and FU a helpFUl tip)...
I always make sure to cook a little extra...
That way my lunches are packed and ready to go! (As I rush out the door the FUllowing morning!)
|Chicken Pesto Melange.|
|Even SuperFit took advantage of the extras!|
He very seldom eats leftovers
but couldn't get enough of my spag.!
What I noticed during week 1 was....
My continued and added strength!
|Incline and Flat Dumbbell Presses using the 40s!|
Between 6-8 reps x 4 with 2 warm ups using the 25s.
|105lbs on the Shoulder Press.|
I've moved up from the 90s!
I've been doing 105 FU about 1 1/2 months!
In addition to my weekly weight training sessions...
I went out FU a 5K run! (Alongside my spinning and elliptical cardio workouts throughout the week)
|I'm making the most of the gorgeous weather!|
I FUeled up with a post-run snack!
|3/4 Cup of Greek Yogurt, Ground Flax Seeds and|
1/2 Packet of Strawberry/Banana Crystal Light.
|So Smooth. So Nom!|
As the FUrst 5 days of my prep came to a close...
I always made sure to have my Protein with me! (So as not to skip a meal!)
|Planning your meals is key!|
|Especially being prepared...Always!|
(I was no driving while taking this FUto!)
All in all...
There were a FU things I missed in my revised 'diet' such as:
1. My Banana;
2. Carob Chips; and
3. My Apple and Berries!
But I know as time goes on...
This list will grow! (Like when I phase in and out of carbs!)
Let's be honest though...
The real difFUculty that lay beFUre me was...
Thanksgiving Weekend! (I think I picked the worst week to start 'dieting'!)
