I totally fell of the diet/workout wagon for a couple weeks there. And I gained some unwanted weight surprisingly fast! My running buddy, Katie, got us signed up for the Deer Park St Paddy’s 10K next month and that totally got me back on the motivation train! KATIE ROCKS! I upped my personal training to 2x a week, we started running again and have a plan to get up to 10ish miles by the end of April!
Here is what I’m focusing on:
1) Water – filling up my 20 oz water bottle at least 5 times a day
2) Strength Training 3-4x a week (2 with my trainer and 2 independently, just found this and want to try it)
3) Increasing the running miles by 1 mile every week until we get to 10 miles.
4) Diet – Shake for 1 meal replacement and paleo-ish for the remainder (but still have 1 cheat day!)
Started back this week and already down 3 pounds!
And it helps that I have my little assistants to help me with my post run stretches…
Here is my morning shake! 1 scoop chocolate shakeology powder, 1 cup crushed ice, 1 1/2 cups almond milk
Very tastey. I really like these shakes, its more than just protein, its full of other healthy stuff like antioxidants and probiotics too. Its on the expensive side, like kinda ridiculous, but I’ll try it a month or two and see how it goes.
