September 8, 2016 – Volumetrics Day 4

I have to say Volumetrics is my favorite diet that I have tried so far. It’s so easy because you just fill up on a bunch of low calorie foods. I’m never hungry and as long as I keep an abundance of the foods from “Category 1”  around, I have no problem staying around my calorie range and never feel deprived. So far so good on Volumetrics!

Here is yesterday’s food!

Breakfast- Usual scramble, apple
Snack- Vegan chocolate Shakeology, 2 cups almond milk, seaweed
Lunch- 6 oz tofu, Normandy blend, 1/2 cup brown jasmine rice, 2 tbs yogurt dressing
Snack- apple, seaweed
Dinner- 4 oz pork loin, broccoli, 2 tbs yogurt dressing, apple, V8
Snack- apple, almond milk

Can you tell my latest craving is no doubt apples? HAS TO BE FUJI!

Exercise – Country Heat Giddy Up!

I committed to doing a Beachbody Health Bet for as much of this month as I could (since baby is coming). Even though Anna is due, I needed something to keep me on track. The past few months, if I don’t eat healthy and include some sort of exercise, I swell up like a tick! This Health Bet was just what I needed. I will be starting my own Challenge Group in October and can’t wait. Details to come!

How are all of you doing? I love seeing your food and exercise everyday. It really keeps me going. Some days it is SO HARD to do anything at all and then some days I feel pretty good. I can’t thank you enough for the motivation you ladies give.

Questions:

How is your fitness lately? Any victories?

Whatcha eating?

Any exercise? 

Any fun plans for the weekend? 

Have a FANTASTIC Friday Peaches!

Hey Peaches!

What a good day! I love new beginnings!!! Plus, I AM HERE! It’s September!!! The baby is due this month! YES! The light at the end of the tunnel.

September 1, 2016 – Volumetrics 

First day of Volumetrics went off with a hitch! Without a hitch? How does the saying go? Anyway, it went good.

Breakfast- 1 egg, 6 white scramble, apple
Snack- Chocolate Shakeology, 1.5 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Lunch- 6 oz tofu, broccoli, 2 tbs ranch yogurt dressing, apple
Snack- seaweed, 1 egg
Dinner- 4 oz chicken, Normandy blend, 2 tbs Avocado Salsa yogurt dressing (So good! First time trying this flavor! I need to be a rep for Bolthouse Farms. I am constantly talking them up on here.)

Volumetrics is all about filling up on a bunch of low calories foods so that you feel full and satisfied!

Exercise- ACTUAL Country Heat Workout…..Geez

So, sometimes I love myself because of my blondness. Remember how a I was so excited to try the Counrty Heat program?

IMG_3432[1]

 

Well, when I received the program. I saw the “Dance Mash-Up” and then opened the larger booklet and found the meal plan. I have been doing the 20 minute dance mash-up this whole time thinking it was all there was to Country Heat.

No.

I just happened to look back over the meal plan last week and realized the front part of the booklet folded out REVEALING COUNTRY HEAT HAHA! There are 6 different workouts, each one having a breakdown of the dance moves that you can play beforehand if you want. I felt so stupid!!!

IMG_3638[1]

So this morning, I did”Country Swing” (32 minutes) and the extremely helpful breakdown before. It was sooooo much easier and super fun! I totally got into it when I knew the moves!

I could blame this on pregnancy brain. But I’m pretty sure this is just good ole Ang.

Questions:

What did you eat today?

Any exercise?

When was the last time you missed something completely obvious? 

Please tell me I’m not alone here.

 

TKP Review: The Flexitarian Diet

Hey Peaches!

Here is my review of The Flexitarian Diet I tried for the month of August. If you want to read the overview, read it here. 

The Flexitarian Diet Review

IMG_3228[1]

Results-

Really the only results that I have are that I did 31 days of the diet. I am in my very last few weeks of pregnancy so weight loss will not be likely and it for sure didn’t happen this month. I didn’t gain any weight for most of the month which I guess considering the baby is gaining weight could mean that I lost a few pounds but there was no drastic weight loss or anything. Again, until this baby is out the weight loss results are kinda hard to report.

How The Diet Made Me Feel- 

Although I did enjoy the food that I was eating, I did feel a little unsatisfied without a little animal protein in my daily diet. I don’t know if this was because of the pregnancy or because I still have a bunch of muscle left over from my body building days, but I did feel like ending a meal was a struggle especially at the end of the day. Plus, I do not like beans so I found myself eating tons of eggs and yogurt. I love tofu but find it nowhere near as filling as eggs and yogurt. So although I did enjoy the food on the diet, at this point in my life I need a little animal protein in my daily diet. At least every other day.

How Easy Was The Diet To Stick To?

As long as I was home and planned my meals, it was pretty easy to stick to. However, when I was at a restaurant I never ordered anything vegetarian, and when life got really hectic I found the diet going out the window. I think this would have been easier to stick to on the fly if my whole family was eating this way but it was just me. I definitely found myself more on the flexing side of the diet toward the end of the month.

Would I Recommend This Diet To You?

Sure. I would. Just like any other eating style, if you want to lose weight you have to watch your calories to make that happen. So if you are looking to eat healthier, maybe lose some weight, and have been curious about the vegetarian lifestyle, I think Flexitarian is a great way to start!

All in all, I didn’t mind being a flexitarian for a month but I didn’t find it overly amazing either. I am definitely glad I gave it a shot and look forward to beginning Volumetrics in the morning!

Questions:

Have you tried The Flexitarian Diet?

Any questions about this diet that I didn’t cover?
