{ fitness photoaday: Day 1-6 }

Day 1: Progress Shot

On the left: A month after I had my son. I was fat and happy! I'm kind of embarrassed putting this pic up because I had gained so much during my pregnancy...but then again I've come so I choose to be [ proud of myself ] instead.
On the right: After changing my diet, a round of Insanity and P90x I lost 60 lbs! It wasn't easy but definitely worth the blood, sweat, and tears! (Note to self: Next pregnancy I'm mos def NOT going to eat for [3]. I don't want to have to push out another almost-10-pounder!) So 60 down and I'm shooting to shed 12 more. But no more than that. I still want some meat on my bones!

Day 2: Gym
My gym=my living room.
I haven't had a gym membership since before I had my son. And now I prefer to workout at home 'cause you save time and money! Lately I've been sticking with these BodyRock workouts everyday (which I LOVE because there's a new one everyday and they're short but intense!) and going for a run with the dog. So NO EXCUSES! Gym or no can still get your sweat on!

Day 3: Breakfast
Veggie omelet with avacdo. Or I do a big bowl of oatmeal with some fruit. Breakfast has always been my favorite meal which I never miss. But on the very rare occasions I do -watch out 'cause I'll turn into Dr. Jekyll for the rest of the day! haha joke!

Day 4: Biceps
Obviouuusssllly these aren't my biceps. But having something like this is my goal: lean and toned but not too buff! ;)

Day 5: Protein
I'm the biggest peanut butter/nutella fan...ever! I found this recipe on pinterest for these protein peanut butter cookies. I tried making them last night. Honestly, they don't taste like the real thing (since they are missing all the sugar and butter) but they're still good enough to eat to help you stay on track with your diet and not feel guilty. When I get my cravings for something sweet and creamy -these are my new go-to treat.

Peanut Butter Protein Cookies
  • 1 Egg (or Egg Beater)
  • 1/2 cup Sugar Substitute (I use Splenda)
  • 1 t Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Natural Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 cup Vanilla Protein Powder
Whisk together the egg, sugar substitute, and vanilla. Stir in the peanut butter and gradually mix in the protein powder. Drop by the teaspoon onto a prepared baking sheet, flatten dough with a wet fork to prevent sticking, and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Makes 1 dozen delicious cookies. Serve with coffee.
These cookies freeze well so pack them in two’s and pop them in the freezer for a to-go treat.

Day 6: 7 pm
After 7 pm - NO EATING! (or at least I try not to) And to help me I always keep my favorite cup near filled with h20, propel, or anything else with no sugar. For some reason I drink more if it's from a straw so I found this perfect cup at Target so I don't have to save my cups from fast food joints anymore. Ha!...I know I'm so cheap!
