Doesn't it always happen that way:
Abs: Check Check
Powerlifting Goals: Check Check Check
2016 was mine and nothing was going to stop me! And then BAM!
Bye bye abs. Nice to have known you.
Bye bye powerlifting meet. See you next year.
After the baby was born, I was determined that I was going to lose the baby weight and get my abs back. BUUUUTTTTT… the holidays rolled around and I immediately used that as an excuse to “start fresh next year.” Lets get real, I wanted to set myself up for success, not failure and there was NO WAY I was going to resist an entire pecan pie (Can I get an Amen?!).
Sitting down for dinner one night, Justin and I started talking about the new year, my goals and what I wanted to achieve:
Step 2: Create a plan of attack
Step 3: Do work son!
The more in depth we got with creating my training goals, I more I realized I needed to make a complete change in how I went about my diet and nutrition. He asked me, “Have you ever thought about meal prepping?”
Um…No. You can’t have chocolate on a meal prep plan…duh
I have been a religious macro counter for the better part of 2 years. The food tetris game was something that I had grown accustomed to and felt like I almost mastered. But I know me, and if you give me the freedom to eat anything that I want to eat as long as I stay in the perimeters of my macros, I would have opted for the all the Halo Ice Cream and Merlot. As long as it fits right?!
I needed something that was going to MAKE me eat healthy and keep me disciplined.
That night, Justin sat down and created a personalized 6 meal prep plan!
Take 1 day out of the week and cook in bulk. I promise it will make your life a lot easier!
Along with new fitness goals comes new progress pictures.
I was a bit embarrassed at my before pictures. As a female, we tend to beat ourselves up more than we should. But I have to constantly remind myself that I just had a baby less than 3 months ago.
Ok..ok…It may not look like much, but I assure you, it is! Almost 2kg lost and 2 inches off my waist and hips and Im just only getting started! Here’s to getting my abs back!!
You can follow my progress on Instagram, see cool training videos and maybe see a picture or two of my cute kiddos!
