I guess the idea of doing a hard workout everyday is kinda overwhelming and boring so I thought that it would be a good idea to space it out. I’m gonna do it 2x per week. Starting tomorrow. Either doing 30 Days Shred or going outside for a jog.
1. Be Prepared
Prepare ahead a tuber ware or zip-lock bag filled with
a- cubes of cheese, chicken breast, ham, cherry tomatoes, celery, etc.
b- nut mix (almond, cashew, sunflower seeds, etc)
What’s great about these is that all you have to do is take some and toss them in a little baggies and take with you to work or school for a snack, light lunch, breakfast, whatever. Toss the (a) mixture with olive oil, garlic powder, pepper, some slices of cucumber and you’ll have a great lunch
2. Learn to love eggs
Do NOT. I repeat. Do NOT listen to those who tell you that eggs are bad for your cholesterol whatsoever. Eggs are the healthiest things in the world. Have some boiled eggs for breakfast or as a snack. Mix with diced celery, onions, spinach, mayo, mustard and a dash of salt and you’ll have yourself an amazing egg salad. I actually like to add Siracha and sliced chilies or a kick. Wasabi is good too. Just don’t overdo it
3. Avoid Binges
Drink a glass of water. Distract yourself ( go out for a walk, wandering at some stores,etc ) to avoid the binge.
A lot of people, included me, binge on their favorite foods before going back on their diets. Don’t do that.
4. Don’t beat yourself up.
We’re human. We’re bound to make mistakes. Just learn your lessons, get up and keep on going.
Meal 1: scramble eggs ( 2 large eggs, 4 medium white mushroom, 1 Oscar Meyer hotdog) and a large cup of coffee sweetened with vanilla splenda)
Snack : 1 jalapeno string cheese (80 calories of delicious goodness)
Meal 2: beef stir fried with onion, tomato, celery leaves and stalk
I measured myself this morning and noticed a half inch lost in my abdomen and hip area. Not too bad, at least I lost something. One inch at a time
I’ve been neglected my blog for the last couple weeks but hey I’m back. For the most part, I was doing pretty good except for a couple days in which I went out and eat whatever ( but I did practiced good portion control which was amazing, usually I just ate till I dropped LOL). I didn’t complete my 30 days Shred Challenge. I had a lot of tests the last couple of weeks and the work out became boring after a while (LOL Look at me making excuses ) Any way, I weighed myself today and it read 184.6, which means I complete my first goal, which is reaching 185.
I didn’t do the 30 days shred today. I need a break from it. It’s a little boring for me now since you do the same thing everyday. I literally remember every word she says in the DVD.Anyway, I switched things up a bit. I walked on treadmill for 30 minutes i the morning then 35 minutes again at night. I also did some crunches (about 25), a couple of chest press (35 too I think)and roughly 2 or 3 minutes of basic exercises (jumping jack, boxing) when i was taking a break from studying. Haizzz I’ve been procrastinated all day (possibly week) and now Istill haven’t written a word on my paper. It’s already midnight. ;d
I found this link. It contains a lot of helpful tips. Check it out if you want.
Meal 1: fried tofu, 2 fried eggs
Meal 2: chrysanthemum soup with pork
Snack: a handful of cashew
I completed Day 5 on 30 Days Shred. I haven’t noticed any improvement with my endurance yet. I have horrible, horrible endurance. I still took some break between the work out but I do noticed a huge improvement in my strength. I was able to do all of the girly push ups with no “small break” in between. I think the work out affects your upper body, espcially your arms more than it does on your lower body. It kills my arms everytime i push the on button LOL
I eat really healthy today.
Meal1 : Vietnamese beef stew with lots of bean srout and herb
Meal2 : basil chicken and cucumber
Meal3 : fried mackerel, lettuce, broccoli and mushroom
Snack: a handful of cashew before dinner
I powered through the fourth day with 3o Days Shred. There were times I really tempted to turn my DVD player off. I hope things will be better as I continue using this DVD cuz today i took a lot of breaks, 3 times actually.
I have to work today: 4 to close ;( so i have to keep this post short… Again.
I finished day 3. Yay! 27 days to go. LOL. Hopefully my hard work will pay off.
I ate pretty good today, though i notice i’ve eaten a lot of beef lately. I had stir ried beef and snow pea as my luch, 2 handful of nuts (I need to put a stop to the whole nut overdoing thing), stir fried beef and napa cabbages for dinner. I also drank a lot of lemon water today. I think that really helps with my skin. It’s clearer.
