Ok, so all this weened I was saying, what I’m sure we are all sick of saying, “My diet starts monday” but this time it’s totally true! I had such a great easter weekend with my friends in Vegas and had so much tasty easter candy:) but my husband is taking me to Barbados for my birthday, the week of May 9th, which I’m really excited for, so it’s time to get swimsuit ready! So I have just over a month do it! This weekend I tweeted about starting my diet Monday and asked who wanted to do it with me and since quite a but if you asked me to share I figured I would!! So i’ve come up with my workout plan for the week, and will post what i’m eating for each day. My husband does this crazy no carb diet, and I’ll admit, it’s really hard for me to dive into it, so i’m taking it week by week, lowering my carb intake as i go, starting with breads and processed carbs. This morning I had a little bit of cream of wheat for breakfast, and for lunch i’m having steamed vegetables and small chicken breast (baked) over a bed of brown rice. I don’t usually love brown rice, but when you cook it in a little bit of chicken broth and some lime, it’s not bad:) and then at sometime during the day i’ll have a small fruit and veggie smoothie/juice, pictured above. See also Homemade Green Monster for another recipe and to see how I do carrots in my juices. For dinner, i’ll have a light vegetable stir fry:)
ps – if you have any questions about how to do any of these, feel free to ask! Just remember that we all have our own goals, strengths and abilities, be safe and know your limits. I usually do 3 sets of 12-15 of light weight to try and build long, lean muscle.
good luck to us all:)
