Oh wow did I totally FORGET to share my results of my first part of training for my next NPC Figure Competition!! I know I posted pics from week 14- to 10 weeks out, but never showed from start to finish INSANITY MAX 30 and BODY BEAST!
INSANITY MAX 30 is the home fitness program I used as my daily morning cardio. I love being able to wake up first thing in the morning and get a good start to my day and burn some calories! Nothing better than tricking your body right away so you don’t hit that plateau!
BODY BEAST is the home workout program I am using to build muscle. Since I am spending less time at the gym, I MUST still get in my weight training, so this is what I use 5 days a week to train for my show!

YUP, I’ll take that!!! Instead of focusing on those numbers on the scale, focus on the non-scale successes, which is exactly what I do in my fitness challenge groups!! If I didn’t take pictures and measurements, I would have been pretty disappointed by looking at the scale… Less than 1 lb a week…. BUT now that I have my pictures and measurements, I’m pretty excited about these results!! I am building muscle like I wanted, I am losing inches, and that is exactly what I needed for my Figure Competition!!
WHAT HAS HELPED ME THE MOST WITH MY RESULTS?!
I feel nutrition is 80% of your results, no matter what you are going for. It is important to meet your daily caloric intake, but also the right calories! I do include my health shake SHAKEOLOGY
into my regimen 2 times a day because it is 1 meal I know I am getting the best nutrition possible! It is not always about the calories, its about the nutrients you are taking in… having over 70 natural ingredients, your super foods, antioxidants, digestive enzymes, and more, my Shakeology has helped me stay on track but also helps regulate me, decreases my cravings, bloating, and helps with my energy level! A bonus is I am losing the artificial sweeteners and chemicals that are in majority of your regular every day foods and meals!
I am now 7 weeks out from my show and I am continuing to use BODY BEAST as my weight training, and now using 21 DAY FIX EXTREME
as my morning workout!! Time to keep moving forward, and kick butt these last 7 weeks!!! My suit is shipped out and on its way, I am signed up for my show, and will be making my appointment for tanning and hair and makeup!! EEEEK!!!! This is pretty darn exciting!!!
If you would like daily accountability, motivation, and support to reach your own health and fitness goals whether it is losing 5 lbs, 10 lbs, or 50 lbs, I am looking for those who are ready to commit to a new and healthy lifestyle! Please fill out the application below for a spot in my next fitness challenge!
*This will require the use of any home fitness program with Team Beachbody and incorporating SHAKEOLOGY
into your daily regimen to give you your full dose of dense nutrition every day!!
I have had an interesting week so far, and it’s only Tuesday!! Is that bad?!?! LOL…
So this is 15 weeks and counting down until my NPC Figure Competition…. NO cheat meals, strict, and double cardio daily.
|Eating my Mancakes!! haha
I know I still have ways to go, but I am glad to see I am starting to see changes in my quads!!! YAY!! Hopefully it continues from here!! Its still hard to picture myself on show day! Ive never been that lean, so I am really looking forward to seeing how this will turn out!!
PS. I let go of my trainer yesterday and as I was extremely frustrated, I will say yesterday was probably my best workout Ive had lol! Im very upset about it because he was very knowledgeable and knows what he’s doing, but I need consistency… UGH!! Ok that was my vent and struggle for this week!! Moving onto bigger and better things!!
Last week, I did PiYo as my cardio in the morning (great stretch, flexibility, and toning workout), and then afternoon, I do my workout and cardio post-workout (Steep Incline and focusing on squeezing buttocks). Let me tell you I didn’t think I would get a great workout with my upper hamstring and glutes on incline at 3 MPH, but let me tell you how much of a difference it is when you focus and squeeze on each step!! HOLY MAN!! I am already shaping my bum!!! YAY!! I know thats one of the hardest things to shape when preparing for show time, so at least I know Im doing something right!
This week, I am changing things up a bit. Instead of PiYo, I am going to do T25 which is a 25 minute home fitness program that gives you cardio, and weight training all in one to help you achieve your fitness goals! I am hoping tricking my body will give me that extra step closer to my goals!
|Sometimes you just need a little E&E to give you energy!
Im not going to lie, I have needed some extra energy in the mornings and afternoon!! This training wears me out a little!! I am use to my home fitness training which definitely got me to my goals, but changing your routine completely is making me extra sleepy!! Deidra- Get with the program!!!
|Egg whites and hot sauce!! MMMMMM
Ok, usually when you eat the same thing over and over, it gets old quick… I don’t know what it is, but eating hard boiled eggs and Sriracha hot sauce is sooooo addicting to me!! I can eat them all day!! Yes, breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks!! HAHA Of course I want to eat the yoke with every egg, but I know I can only limit myself to one 🙂
Not sure if you have had this Sriracha hot sauce before, but I literally POUR it all over my eggs lol!!
If you like Sriracha, check out my buffalo cauliflower recipe under clean eating recipes…. AMAZING!!!
I had a lot of temptations with food this weekend with my in-laws here with us and my mother in law being an amazing baker that she is with her cookies!! I sat there and smelled them haha!
Luckily, I have my challenge groups on Facebook which are my support groups that I run to help my challengers reach their health and fitness goals. I had to be a challenger and post so people helped me stay on track!! Otherwise, I may have given in!
Once I stayed strong (ok took 1 bite), I felt much better and didn’t need it! I know that is a psychological game and if I know I could have it, I wouldn’t want it… So its just because I know I can’t that now I want it! Make sense?!? hehe
My MAN CAKE with APPLES RECIPE:
- 1 Green apple diced
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 8 egg whites, 1 yoke
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- Olive Oil Spray
- Put stove on medium and spray pan on stove with Olive oil spray
- Mix first 5 ingredients in bowl and apply to pan on stove
- Cook on each side for approximately 4 minutes, or until done to your liking
- Let cool and ENJOY!!
** Remember, I am training for a figure show, so I have increased my protein intake ALOT!! I also do not count calories, I count protein, carbs, and fat intake! 🙂
One of my favorite snacks I had was my hummus and raw veggies… I really shouldn’t be having hummus, but I was good about portion size and I still have time before getting really strict 😉
|The kiddos eat healthy with me!
Watermelon, blueberries, and cheese for the boys!! We had a nice little lunch on the picnic table together!!
Oh the joys and working from home!! Nothing better than hanging out at home with my boys and getting some work done at the same time!! 😉 This was lunch break!!
Im leaving you all with this…. we are all going to have struggles, doubts, and instability… that’s just a part of life and our job is to learn to deal and cope with what we have. Realize what you are struggling with, someone else has it worse than you. Take everything you have and be thankful! I am thankful that my family is supporting me through my journey 110%! I will say, 4 weeks ago, when I told my husband that I was entering to train for my first NPC figure competition, he was upset. He said that is unattractive and he does not want me looking like that…..
Well, 4 weeks have gone by and he has totally changed his thoughts! He is proud of my hard work, and is helping me when I have cravings, and even talks about what Im doing to train for my show! Can’t forget the nice compliments I’m getting about my physique 🙂
If you just be you, and be your best, that should be enough for anyone who loves you and cares about you and your happiness and success! Do what makes you happy, because at the end of the day, you have 1 life, and who knows when it may be your last… live it to your fullest and without regret EVERY DAY!!!
