THE RESULTS ARE IN!!!!
.5 pound weight GAIN and FLAT EVEN on my measurements 🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️🤪🤪🤪
After following my Timed Nutrition and rocking some of the HARDEST workouts I’ve ever done…😵🙃😵
And yes…I’m making a point to SHARE this!
Because, last week when I shared my Goodbye pics I also shared I would be documenting this journey publicly – the good, bad and ugly…although I will admit, when I put that post up I totally expected some IMPRESSIVE week 1 results 😜😜😜
As in results that showed my bloat gone & with the abs be poppin’…
Truth is….well that didn’t exactly happen.
The scale says I weight the same, well actually slightly MORE…
The tape measure says NO change
The bloat is still hanging around…
But I still felt I had to share this…
How many of you have ever felt like you ROCKED the week, nailed it in the gym, ate super clean, and yet it felt like it was for NOTHING 🤷♀️💁♀️🤦♀️🙋♀️🙋♀️🙋♀️
And sometimes it’s just easier to go and eat the cookies right?!
But honestly it’s THIS TRANSPARENCY that allows me to reflect, course correct and also make sure I KEEP GOING! I guess you could argue that THIS is single handedly one of the best PERKS of my JOB!
I took a step and reflected…
And for some reason, I have avoided dairy for the majority of the last 18 months but thought “its on the approved list I’ll enjoy it” – but actually MY BODY HATES DAIRY. So I need to adjust that…just because its on the list doesn’t mean its right for you! You have to learn to listen to your body and realize that even good/healthy foods can have a different effect on us all.
As a FORMER Chrons Disease sufferer, I found dairy is just something to LIMIT, so I am going to continue my vegan superfoods, discontinue my nighttime whey based recharge drink and monitor my post workout recover drink…because, well honestly I’m not so sure I’ll walk without it!
Its far from a total loss, because I saw improvements in my strength in just week over week and was able to increase my weights on several moves today. And I KNOW my consistency, IN TIME, will pay off.
I have women in my accountability group who lost over 7″, who lost 4 pounds, who worked out 6 consecutive days FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER and who had some of the biggest WHYpower & WILLpower moments in their lives ….THAT is a WIN in and of ITSELF!
And my kids jumped in and joined us for a family sweat session over the weekend – BY CHOICE and it warms my heart to see them – imitating the behaviors of US.
-So this week was not a loss
-I am not quiting
-The process isn’t broken
-I just have to tweak my approach.
I look at it as a bit more of a set back for my COMEBACK!
Stay tuned…next week will be different!!
We’re still going to have fun
We’re still going to get up at 4:41 am each day
And we are going to FOCUS in on our nutrition!
Here’s mine and my hubs meal plans for the week ahead!
