How many of you say "It's my cheat DAY" and eat anything and everything you want that day? Are you getting the results you want in the gym? If not, you might want to rethink that entire cheat day.
My hubby and I used to be very guilty of that. We would eat sooo good and workout hard all week, just to go crazy on the weekend!
We would go to Sonic and get cheeseburgers, ice cream drinks and t...ater tots with cheese. That meal was usually followed by a Digiorno pizza with avocado at dinner time. We might even go have mexican food with drinks. We would stuff ourselves because "oh my gosh, it's my cheat day!! I have to get it all in."
Once we cut that back to one cheat meal a week and started eating measured portions during the week (every 3 hours, 5-7 meals a day), we started seeing BIG changes!
Each meal consists of a lean protein, complex carb and a veggie with healthy fats in moderation.
Just thought I would share that in case some of you have experienced this same situation and are not getting the results you are after.
What a BIG week! I had the pleasure of meeting my very first 'Lean Body for Her Challenge' winner, Lacey Marks! She dropped 29 pounds in just 12 weeks following my challenge. She didn't stop working hard after the challenge ended in December, but kept pushing herself and has dropped over 80 pounds this year! I am so proud of Lacey and all that she continues to accomplish. Her ultimate goal is to enter a fitness competition. I look forward to watching her succeed. This sweet lady has a Facebook following of over 15,000 people, so be sure to look her up!
We spent one full day just hanging out, training- and shooting pictures and video. The next day was her day to shine at her very first photo shoot! She rocked it and is such a natural on camera! I can't wait to meet my next challenge winner this summer! Work hard, ladies!
If you didn't get a chance to sign up, you can follow my program and get LEAN with us! The program is FREE!
This week I was blessed with the opportunity to travel to NYC as Lean Body for Her spokesmodel and attend Fitness Magazine's "Meet and Tweet" event for fitness bloggers! What an amazing opportunity! I was able to bring my "assistant" aka best friend, Diane, with me. The event consisted of panel discussions between Fitness Magazine's staff and big names in the fitness industry. The discussions were very informative and allowed a Q & A session as well.
I was also thrilled to meet the Editor-in-Chief of Fitness Magazine, Betty Wong. The event was a success and they sent us away with a huge gift bag and two new pair of shoes for training! I am proud to represent Labrada Nutrition and network with some of the most inspirational people in this industry.
Thank you for following my journey! I can't wait to see what lies ahead!
Meeting Fitness Magazine Editor-in-Chief, Betty Wong.
No matter what challenge you are doing: mine, Lean Body, P90X, Livefit, etc..... TRUST the process. Follow the plan. A plan won't work unless you do.
If you are working your butt off in the gym, but you aren't following the meal plan, your results will not be quite what they could be. You get out what you put in.
I can refer people to my nutritionist ALL DAY, but if you aren't willing to eat what she says, you won't get maximum results.
YOU HAVE TO BE READY. That switch in your head has to flip.
Ever heard that saying, "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink"? Well, that was me....until I got fed up with myself. You can give someone the opportunity to do something, but you cannot force them to do it if they do not want to.
I am only giving you information I wish I'd had eight years ago. What you do with it is UP TO YOU. Something to think about.
