Days 9 - 11
Day 9 - Today's workout was a 45-minute Strength & Endurance Power Circuit.
Which basically means, light weight, lots of reps and you don't stop moving! Topped it off with some gut and butt and for 30 minutes and felt AH-MAZING!
I put on an old pair of shorts (sowry Boston!) and they used to be a bit (ahem) uncomfortable but today, perfecto! What you must realize when cutting out processed foods is that a looser waistband and a lower number on the scale is NOT all fat loss.... However, after 9 days of diligence, clean eating, exercise and zen, some of it most definitely is!
Breakfast - 2 Eggs Over Easy with some sauteed broccoli, red onions and green peppers (about 3/4 cup)
Snack - 1/2 Peanut Butter Banana Pancake
Lunch - Thai Laab Lettuce Wraps (sans lettuce because I was out. Subbed in same veggies as breakfast!)
1/2 cup Baby Bok Choy and....
I had my Snack (melon with 1 piece Prosciutto and a cup of cherries) with lunch because I was super hungry today from the butt kicker workout!
