The plan is to DIET HARD!
HI Girls!!…well I made it through another boosting phase!!! Today was the last day~ WHEW!!! I am so excited to be buffing again!!!
The Plan is to DIET HARD!! I haven’t been this serious about cutting down/leaning up in a long time! I’ve been at a comfortable nice weight for the past year or two and haven’t had an BIG reason to diet. I actually wouldn’t “have to” right now…but I want to feel super confident and thin for my birthday!!
So here is my POA for this first week of buffing:
**DIET** Each day get in my protein and greens– LOWer carbs!! follow 5-3-3-3 portions and tons of water!**
Th-LEGS!! hard and abs too
F- Back, Sh, Bi, run
Sa-football game in Kansas City
Su-hike with the family
HERE’s a quick Q & A on DIET-
Question #1. How do you deal with cravings for junk foods, sweets and salty food? I can stay on a diet for maybe a few weeks but I eventually get really bad cravings and binge on snacks and fast foods.
Michelle’s Answer: My answer is to not be quite so strict. I allow myself a daily treat to head off future binges.
Question #2. I’m trying to create a healthy shopping list to stick with. What are some of the main foods I should include to maintain a lean and muscular physique?
Michelle’s Answer: Protein and Greens: Eggs, chicken, turkey, hamburger, tuna, salmon, whey protein, beef jerky, romaine lettuce, cabbage, cucumbers, celery, broccoli, asparagus, green beans
Question #3. I’m about 35 pounds over weight. I have never started an exercise program and really don’t know where to start. What tips can you give me to get started on the right track?
Michelle’s Answer: Just start out shooting to build the habit of activity and exercise. Shoot for doing “something” 3 days a week. Once you have that a solid habit, increase your frequency and intensity. Always remember that Challenge=Change.
Question #4. I tend to eat out most of the time and really don’t know what healthy foods to order from the menu. What tips do you recommend for eating out at restaurants to make sure my diet will not suffer?
Michelle’s Answer: Choose meat first…stay away from tons of rice, pasta, sauces etc. and always have a good green salad first…Also say no to BREAD.
Let’s plan on having a productive finish to the week~ I am totally going to be focused on my workouts and diet!! it will be FUN!!!
PMA all the way!!!
