Repetition of Affirmations & Body Beast Week 5 Update & Vegetarian Clean Eating Meal Plan

| (1) comments |

I know that I have been slacking on my weekly meal plan updates. That is for two reasons 1) life has been crazy busy and while I'm still doing my planning and working with my groups every day, it takes even more time to prep everything for a blog 2) I don't want you to get too bored with my weekly "Here's what I'm eating" posts. :P So here is my bi-weekly status update. Haha

Body Beast is going awesome. I can't believe how much stronger I am getting each week. I have even started curling 20lbs on arms days which is a lot if you knew how many bicep curls we do on those days! LOL! However, as well as the workouts are going, the nutrition has been a struggle. I am not eating badly. In fact, the opposite is probably true. I just continue to struggle with eating enough as I continue to adapt to a vegetarian lifestyle. You may be asking 'Why is she doing this to herself?'. Well, if you haven't read my past posts...I just want to. I'm so much happier eating this way. I don't have to gag down my meals. I don't dread meal time. But with a program like this one where we are burning so many calories, I am hungry ALL OF THE TIME. I know I just need to find the right tweaking of my diet to make it work. I'm constantly researching and learning the best ways/things to eat. I know that my body is changing even if I can't see it and the scale continues to taunt me. I swear I hear it giggling as I step on it. Most times, this wouldn't bother me but with Cancun looming (NEXT WEEK!!!), I'm feeling pretty insecure. I am continuing to undergo treatment prescribed by my naturopathic dr. I know that a lot of my lack of progress comes from the stuff going on with me right now. I KNOW it will take time to heal my body. But as you may be able to relate...I'm impatient and frustrated! Along with that I am exhausted all of the time. Today we went to a movie with our boys and I seriously slept through half of it. I have NEVER been that person that needs to sleep in the middle of the day. :( So let's all of this added together, makes things a struggle and an extra sensitive and insecure Tina! But I will get through it. I know I will be stronger for it. So I will keep pushing and praying and believing!

So as I continue to work on the nutrition portion of my life, here is my plan for this week. I have switched back to eating off of the 21 Day Fix EXTREME nutrition guide because it is easier for me. I know tracking macros is important for some people, but for me it just adds extra stress that I don't need. Tracking colored containers just makes my life that much simpler. I don't always have every single color planned for every day. I like to give myself some room to move. I always look back over my day at dinner time and make sure that I am going to come out close to my goals.

My big goal for this week is to make some major progress with my nutrition, no cheats and mentally give myself pep talks every day in preparation for our Cancun trip next week. It makes me sick to leave my babies, but on the flip side it is going to be really nice to go away with my husband for a few days and just de-stress!

This week also kicked off my New Coach Internship program. I LOVE training new coaches and seeing them succeed in their businesses! It makes me so happy to bring financial freedom to others while also (more importantly) growing my team of individuals who are focused on making a difference! It's not too late to join us. I will still be accepting applications through this week. If you are interested in joining us and learning more, please fill out the application below and I will be in touch.

Have a great week!

  1. You actually make it appear so easy together with your presentation but I to find this topic to be really something that I think I would by no means understand. It seems too complex and very large for me. I am looking ahead for your next post, I will attempt to get the hold of it! outlook email login
