I got some awesome news to share with you lovely ladies.... Today is day One-O or DAY 10 on Jillian's "Making the Cut" program!!! I'm have done 1/3 of the program and yes you guessed it I am pretty excited! One of my favorite bloggies, Jenna, has began Jillian's 30-day shred program and the Old Clothes Challenge. I am joining Jenna in her Old Clothes Challenge because when I am done with "Making the Cut" I hope to be getting back into some clothes I have been setting aside because they just didn't fit anymore. As crazy as this might sound, I am already seeing some results, overall my clothes are fitting a lot better and I am feeling good. No worry chicas when I am done with the program I will post some before and afters, I know how much we all love pics ;)
What makes you feel good in your skin?
What I have learned from this program is that it is not solely Jillian's kick-ass workouts that are doing the trick, but the diet is just as important as well. Some might consider the diet to be "too extreme" but I haven't found it too difficult to follow. However, you do have to be ready to give up a lot of treats and alcohol. I know track my eats on a food journal and have become more conscious of the importance of portion control.
Now on to food and loads of cleaning!
A break from the cereal kick I have been on:
- 1/2 cup of Oatmeal
- 1/2 tbsp of PB & Co.'s Bee's Knees
- 1/2 tbsp. Coconut Butter (yummy)
- 1/2 cup of Frozen Blueberries
*insert Cleaning, cleaning,cleaning!*
Lunch was quick and easy:
- LaTortilla Factory Quesadilla
- Black Bean Burger
- Hot Salsa
* insert Cleaning, Cleaning... MORE cleaning!*
What to do now that my room is spotless?....let's go to the gym :) Did Day 9 of Jillian's workouts and my legs feel like they are going to fall off!
After the workout I was hangry and after all the smoothie talk from yesterday's post I was craving one.
- 1/2 cup of EAS
- 1/2 cup of Almond Milk
- 1 cup of mixed frozen berries
Since yesterday I learned that Starbuck's fraps and coffees are some "unhealthy habits" you once had, figured that pouring my smoothie in my awesome Starbucks cup was very fitting for this healthy swap ;)
For dinner I took Rusty out for a belated b-day celebration! Since he was the b-day boy, he got to pick his place.... and it wasn't a surprising choice, haha.
He loves a place where he can get something like this:
What can I say he loves his wings!
I got a grilled chicken salad with cranberry and walnuts:
Hope you ladies are having an awesome week!!!
Can you believe that Friday is a day way!!! Wooo HOO!
