Since I last updated you, it was 10 days ago. I have now been advised by my online trainer that I need to make a few changes. The workouts have stayed the same, but my diet has changed. I am now doing 3 higher carbohydrate days and 4 low carbohydrate, higher fat days. When I say high carbohydrate, I actually don’t mean I can go crazy. My portions are highly controlled. In fact, I am only eating about 150g of carbohydrates on those high days. My water intake has stayed the same, 1- 1 1/2 gallons. For now I am still allowed by hot sauce which has taken some of the dullness out of my chicken and egg meals. I think I can hang on to this condiment for one more week and then it gets rough.
Overall my energy is very good. Sometimes when I am hitting my cardio I am a bit tired. I think this is only because I don’t really enjoy it. I try to surprise myself with good music or look at other bikini models I look up to for motivation to keep me going though. I am feeling a lot more confident, especially when I am getting dressed and find out that my clothes are now too big for me!
I have been good about planning my meals around my appointments so that I can eat every three hours. I have failed to do this a couple of times and my hunger got really out of control by my next meal. I also noticed that I was a lot more grumpy. Controlled blood sugar all day is a girls best friend so never mess with your food timing.
I also had my first posing lesson and since then I have been practicing the moves every time I get in front of the mirror. I am patiently awaiting for my bikini and heels to arrive so I can start strutting around my house and getting really confident in walking in my heels.
My next focus for this upcoming week is to deliver the same intensity, if not more to my workouts. I will take each day one at a time and do the best I can do to achieve my goals, Stay tuned!
