What I eat throughout the day!

Good morning! TGIF! So, everyone always asks me what I have for breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner. I decided to post a picture of everything (besides dinner) to give you guys a heads up! I base my food intake on a 1500 calorie diet. I'm never starving and how I space out the times I eat throughout the day. If you have any questions or concerns about what to eat I'm always here to help!

My breakfast!

My morning snack!

My lunch!

My afternoon snack!

Don't beat yourself up!

So today I did not get my workout in. I have a sore throat and I hurt my wrist doing some push-ups. I am taking today and Sunday as my rest day. In the past, I use to beat myself up inside over not doing a workout and then I would slack the next day and the next which was totally stupid. Knowing your body and knowing when to not push it to its limits is very important.  Your body needs the rest to repair and refuel so you can MAX OUT the following day!

Today's Workout 1/28/15

This is one of the hardest workouts that I have done in a while.

Hey everyone! Another snow day here so I am just being a bum lol. So I wanted to let you guys know that I am going to post my workout here every day and write a little bit about it. Currently, I am doing a program called Insanity Max:30 by the wonderful trainer Shaun-T! I needed to find a program that was going to challenge me to the EXTREME and also keep me motivated and this is def the one. This is a two month program, 5 days a week, only 30 mins a day. The point of the program is to max you out meaning you push as hard as you can for as long as you can and when you stop, that's your max out time. This is very motivating because the program is set to up to max you out and give you an amazing workout. When you max out, it doesn't mean you are done with the workout, it means you take a second regroup and try and push your hardest again. Let me tell you, it is not easy but it is so much fun to challenge and push yourself! Now my question to you is, did you workout today? If not, why? Comment and let me know!

My maxout time today was 8:05. I tried to push myself to get the whole workout done, but I only made it to 22:00 mins!

WOOHOO! It's been what, almost a year and a half or more? I am happy to say that I am back and ready to get my blog up and running once again! A little after I stopped posting, I lost the determination of living a better and healthier lifestyle. I started seeing great results and was like "Oh forget this, I am going to start 'living life'". Well I definitely had the wrong mentality. I then torn my meniscus and was out of commission for like 3 months, Needless to say, all my hard work was gone and I did gain the 30lbs back -_- . I am now married, October 18,2014 <3 and I want to start off my marriage on the right start. I want to be fit and healthy so I can travel, do active things, live a long life, and be healthy over all so I can become pregnant and have a child. Starting January 1st, I took a vow to never look back and change my life forever. I started doing a program called Insanity Max 30 and changed the way I eat completely. I had one 8 oz glass of diet soda this passed month. I completely cut out fast food. I did eat out 2 times for dinner (I was in NH) but I didn't eat as bad as I usually would.  I am trying to cut back on Alcohol, especially wine. Wine has so much calories and is so unhealthy but oh do I love it! Moderation is key! So having a glass here and there is not as bad as long as its in my caloric goal for the day. I have made a motivation board (I will post later), I am using myfitness pal faithfully, I am working out 5-6 days a week and sometimes I'll do a double workout, and I am meal prepping ( I will post some meals and idea later).  I am finding this not being so hard for me like it was the first time. I am restarting this blog because I want people to see what I am going through and possibly inspired others to follow suit. I know reading about  and seeing pictures of other people who are working toward the same goals I am, really motivates me and inspires me to stay on track. <3
