Ciao! 🙂 Feeling super motivated today.
I’m currently 2 months into my Fit Figure Training Program. I’ve seen a few changes in my body, especially my upper body (back/shoulders/arms) and my overall strength is on the rise. Sometimes I get discouraged. This whole process has been trial and error with me, especially when it comes to my nutrition. All I can do is stay positive and do what I need to do, whole-heartedly.
I have been working my booty off in the gym! That’s never been a problem. I love working out. Sure, some days it takes a lot of motivation to drag myself out of bed and into the gym- but once I’m in there, I’m IN there. The most difficult part about this process for me is, hands down, the nutrition. I can honestly say that I haven’t been sticking to my nutrition guidelines, completely. Some days are better than others. Some days I get so busy that I can’t make time to eat and I end up completely stuffing my face when I get home from work in the evening. But I’m learning and I’m growing.
I recently began setting aside a day during the weekend to prep my meals for the week. I’ll cook my protein and veggies and put them in Tuberware containers. This approach has helped a lot. That way, I know the exact nutritional information for what I’m eating and I can just grab it when I’m on the go. I don’t prep every meal. I eat 4 meals a day so I’ll prep 2 out of those 4 meals because lately I have been eating the same thing everyday for breakfast and I like to cook something fresh for dinner (unless I have to teach a late class that night, then I’ll prep a meal to bring with me) 🙂. I strongly recommend meal prep to anyone looking to get fit!
I will do a meal prep post following this one to give you all more information on how and what to cook! 🙂
