Here’s my ABolution. All 2012 pictures. I was stuck for such a long time and couldn’t figure out how to make my abs pop out. Leaned down then got stuck again and it wasn’t until recently when everything clicked. PERSISTENCE. PERSISTENCE. PERSISTENCE!!
Diet food bland? Not with these in my kitchen! The two bottles to the very right is Walden Farms Zero Carb, Zero Fat and Zero Sugar BBQ Sauce and Pancake syrup!! It’s BOMB!!
Jan 1, 2011 - June, 15 2012. Seeing this made me emotional. This was a lonely journey and there were times I wanted to quit. I fell many times, hit many challenges and one thing I didn’t do is stop!! You might just see physical changes but what really changed was my mentality. The mind has to grow before the body. I’m excited for the future and the pain it brings
Fitness Tip Friday:
What’s up!!?? Hope everyone killed their gym session this AM and for those that goes in the PM…MURDER THE WEIGHTS!!
So, I’ve been thinking about another great tip that has helped me shed 80 pounds and it’s “Meal Structure & Timing”. What do I mean by that? Well, for me, I was eating all the right foods but go hours on hours of being hungry before having the other meal. Well, that was counter productive to what I was trying to achieve – A faster metabolism!
General Meal Structure & Timing – Here’s a sample/general layout of a days worth of eating. Let’s say the carb intake is 200 and the protein intake is 200 and the person works out in the AM.
Pre Workout Meal 6:00AM – 30g of Carbs / 30g of Protein
Workout at 7:30 AM 8:30
Post Workout Meal 9:00AM – 50g of Carbs / 30g of Protein
Meal 3: 11AM – 12PM – 30g of Carbs / 30g of Protein
Meal 4: 2PM – 3PM – 30g of Carbs / 30g of Protein
Meal 5: 5PM – 6PM – 30g OF Carbs/ 30 of Protein
…and so on.
Eating every 2 to 3 hours with the carbs and protein intake roughly around the same amount with an exception of the post workout meal which contains 20g more of carbs. This structure is GENERAL and can be modified based on your lifestyle, fitness goals, and macronutrient intake.
• Eat every 2 to 3 hours EVERYDAY!
• Keep intake around the same amount for the macros.
