For the past 2 weeks I have been focusing on eliminating grains and sugar from my diet. Monday- Friday I am strategic in choosing protein, bean, nut and green foods and allowing my favorite hamburgers and dark beers on the weekends. I have felt so great the past 2 weeks that I have no intentions in stopping this new routine. Not only do I feel great but I am noticing my body changing and responding differently to my workout regimen. I purposely have been doing shorter HIIT routines that give me a higher calorie burn to see what results I can gain with this diet. My workouts range anywhere from 15 min being the average or 30 min if I’m really in the mood to add a little extra credit burn and consist of a mix of tabata, kettlebell, weight training and good o’l plyometrics. I posted last week on some of the foods that I have been eating and the simplicity of consuming real whole foods.
I have lost 5 lbs in the past 2 weeks and noticed that my abs (which have been through a lot in the past 7 years) are becoming more defined, leaner and stronger. It is possible to have a flat belly after birthing 3 kids! Hallelujah!
Here’s a little of my progress from the past couple weeks.
Cucumber, tomato, grilled asparagus with Avocado, dried cranberry, walnut tuna salad
(307 calories burn after 25 min workout)
Documenting your progress is an amazing way to stay motivated and see how your hard work is paying off. My 2 week progress, 5 lbs lighter and more defined abs. I am finally seeing a little more definition and a flatter stomach which has been very encouraging! Next goal is to start healing the after baby skin 🙂 Im eager to see more progress in the next month or 2! Just in case this is your first stop to my blog here’s a recap of my baby belly progress from a year ago with a pretty distinct Diastasis recti! Read more of how I have been healing and repairing my Diastasis. No matter where you are in your weight loss journey don’t give up and commit to change! It will happen through consistency and pushing through. I never thought it was possible until I set out to find it the truth. 50 lbs latter I am living proof that all things are possible with determination, a plan, commitment and desire for change!
