Trip to New Zealand!
Hey friends! I decided to make a separate travel blog to post about my travels. This year was New Zealand. I just got back yesterday so I'm working on each day with lots of pictures but I have to first two days posted about already.
I forgot to write a post that I started Shaun T's new program: Focus T25. I'm currently on week 3 of Alpha Phase (which is Phase 1) and I'm proud to say that I've followed the calendar to a tee. I have never followed a program calendar this long, aside from Bodyrock but that's because those are only 12 minutes.
I find with most program: Turbo Fire, Insanity, etc. that I just can't commit to fitting an hour or more into my day after work. I could do it before work but honestly I don't get as good of a workout in the morning because I'm so not a morning person. I'm tired and sluggish and really just half assing my workout at that point.
I work different shifts varying from starting at 8:00AM to 10:00AM. Tomorrow I happen to start at 10:00AM so that means that I can still sleep in AND do my workout before work :) Tonight was lower focus and tomorrow morning is cardio. I love doing my workout before work because then it's out of the way for the day …
To get an idea of what include on your shopping list, clickHere to view Michi's ladder. It's a great tool and really easy to use to help create a balanced meal plan.
Self magazine is very informative and I like the interviews with the celebs to see a different side of them. My mom has a subscription and hands them down to me. Click Here for some tricks to curb food cravings.
I also found this in Self magazine. It's a great read and very informative. They also have new workouts to try made by trainers and they usually include a meal plan
When is the best time of day to workout? Anytime!
If you're unsure of portion sizes, this chart is very helpful =)
Happy Wednesday!! Only 2 more days until the weekend! Time sure flies when you're constantly counting down to the weekend haha. I've become very busy recently with making plans during the week because I always feel so rushed on the weekend. As much as I like relaxing on week nights its also nice to get more done during the week.
As of Sunday I've stopped calorie counting. I have a good grasp on what is what and what I should be eating and it's obviously not working for me because I still don't have the defined tummy that I want. I did some consulting with my very informational cousin who has her degree in nutrition and I'm still eating too many carbs. I keep forgetting that bananas and apples are carbs! I'm going to finish the ones I have and start buying more frozen berries. Costco has awesome bags of frozen berries so I'll be making a trip there soon hopefully.
I haven't been able to fit in Insanity this week and yesterday I took a rest day. Tonig…
