I want to do a quick weekly review of my 12 week plan that Porter developed over at Total Health and Wellness. This is a bit overdue but hey, better late then never right?
I went over the plan here. So, I am just going to go over the nutrition, the workouts and the progress that I have made.
The first week, my calories and carbs were upped. I ate just slightly over 2,000 calories each day, spread between 8 meals per day. First meal is at 8:30am and the last at 9:00pm.
I eat every 2-3 hours- NO sugar, no tropical fruits.
Some meals were larger then others but my macros were about 40 carb/30 protein/20 fat at the end of the day.
*I weigh/measure each and every meal.
*I have a LOT more dishes to do.
*I need to purchase more measuring cups….
*When I prepare food, I try to prepare extra for the next meal/days…
*Not all the meals are super pretty, and they are commonly eaten out of tupper ware. ---Fancy right?!
*I can eat a whole bag of Costco broccoli in a week, or less.
*I really miss frozen bananas with almond butter..
Dessert each night is a protein shake just made with water. Not exactly a dessert… but I can take it for 12 weeks!
(Any New Girl fans out there?)
I am never hungry, and it is completely do-able. I have to pack meals sometimes if I know I won’t make it home in time. I have not cheated once yet! So, I guess you can say- So far, so good!
Throughout the week I completed-
The GPP workouts every day. 70%-100% effort.
+4 lifting days- slow, controlled lifting. It is two different workouts formulated by THF.
Taught 2 body pump classes, 1 body attack class, and shook it in 1 body jam at skills fitness.
I have my measurement record at GPP and Porter takes my weight and body fat percentage each week and figures out my lean mass and fat mass.
I started at 22.9% body fat and by the end of week one I was at 19.9% and down about 2.5 lbs.
I do love the consistency of the this plan and I do feel better overall, but still have been having stomach cramps and bloating issues every so often, mainly if I apples or grapes? I wonder if high fibrous fruits have something to do with them?
I am going to start working on going to bed a little earlier.. (as I post this at 11:30 PM..) and be better about my supps. I’m good at remembering my meals when I am out on the go but forget some supps some times, and drink MORE water. I’m not to bad on this but could be better!
Week 2 is almost over… so here it goes!
Question of the Day:
How much water do you drink per day?
