This week has been a crazy one, which is why I’m just now getting to my fitness and food for the week post. However, it’s kind of perfect timing, because one month from today, I’ll be heading to Florida for vacation and I have created a plan to be bikini ready!
Back in 2012 I created a ‘Get Fit in 45‘ plan when I was heading to Austin to see my brother. I gave myself 45 days to hit the goals that I put in place for myself.
I’m going to do something similar this month, before heading to Florida in June, but it’ll be my ‘Get Fit In 30 Days‘ plan. I’m beyond excited!
There are some similarities from the 45 day plan, but a lot has also changed. Here’s how the week and month is going to look!
Breakfast: I’ve still been enjoying my carbs with breakfast – overnight oats or Ezekiel toast along with eggs and sometimes fruit. You know, the usual. This will continue over the next 30 days (and beyond), as well.
Lunch: I’ve been having an Ezekiel Pita stuffed with Applegate Farm Turkey Pastrami or plain chicken breast, pretty often – it’s so good – I’ve also been enjoying tuna, chicken with sweet potato or Shakeology.
Dinner: My plan of having salads for dinner versus lunches is going really good. I’m going to stick with it most nights. Of course, I’ll change up the ingredients that I put in each one, but it’ll be the same base of spinach and baby kale and most likely my homemade honey dijon dressing.
I’m on round 2 of the 21 Day Fix. I love this plan. It’s super easy to follow and I can easily adapt it to everyday living. It’s great. Plus the glass of wine or dark chocolate once in a while is a wonderful perk!
Speaking of dark chocolate – that’s the only ‘sugar’ treat I’m allowing myself, no other sweets! Only for the next 30 days though, once Summer hits, I need that soft serve once in a while – you feel me!?
I haven’t had much coffee creamer at all since starting the FIX, here and there, but nothing crazy. I’m ok with having it once a weekend if it stays that way, but mostly, I’m going to stick with iced black coffee!
Alcohol. I don’t have anything coming up where I’ll be wanting to have some drinks and technically on ‘the fix’ a few glasses a week is all that’s allowed. I’m going to enjoy my glass of red wine on Thursday nights with the girls and probably some drinks Memorial Day weekend, otherwise, it’ll be minimal.
Shakeology will be on the menu at least five out of seven days. Typically at breakfast or lunch, but sometimes for dinner, as well. It’ll just depend on the day.
For accountability purposes, I’m posting this current body picture. I didn’t have the guts to post one in shorts, but maybe in a month I will!?!
I really want/need to make abs a priority I just hate doing them!! I created a full month of workouts and I know myself, this plan will totally change, but at least I have it as a guide. I made it a point to schedule abs three times a week.
Cardio will consist of Turbo, FIX Cardio DVD, T25, or this elliptical circuit that I created:
For days when I’m lifting, I’ll use this upper body routine and my usual leg routine – I’ll also be doing Dirty 30 from the 21 Day Fix, which is a full body strengthening DVD.
On days I’m feeling uninspired, or uninterested in completing the workout I have planned, I might refer to this POPSUGAR Bikini Body Countdown calendar of workouts. I’m all about variety – I have to change things up or I’ll get bored.
I think that about does it. I’d love for you to join me. Everyone has 30 days to devote to getting healthier, right?!
Just take your before picture and measurements, create your workout calendar or use the POPSUGAR one, decide what you’re going to cut out of your ‘diet’ (hate that word), and each week we will set goals and motivate each other.
