I need to start cooking at home more often….
so what are some meal ideas? What’s your favorite thing to cook at home?
TRY being the key word.
I ate waaaayyyy too much bad food this week, by which I mean I ate a ton of food that was absolutely delicious and completely terrible for me.
Pizza, chocolate souffle, sushi, cream cheese wontons, vegan blt, french toast with caramel sauce, sandwiches, popcorn and other junk food. Oh and quite a bit of booze.
Don’t get me wrong….it all tasted INCREDIBLE. But I know that it’s not good for my body, and it doesn’t make me feel very good. My body doesn’t feel good when I eat crappy food, my energy is low, and I get headaches more often.
So this week, the goal is to drink lots of water, eat lots of vegetables and fruits, have some good carbs, take my vitamins, and try to get enough sleep.
Hopefully it will get me back to feeling great overall, and maybe this time the habit will stick.
BLOGILATES MEAL PLAN & 90 DAY CHALLENGE WORKOUT CALENDAR REVEALED
I need to get to bed soon, so I’m gonna make this quick.
I just finished the meal plan. Those of you that signed up for my newsletter have received it by now and I hope you are as excited as I am to get started!!!
There’s a bunch of guidelines in the plan, but here are some key things I want you to remember:
1. Print the meal plan out and stick it on your fridge. This will allow you to stay FOCUSED.
2. Prepare your meals the night before or even the Sunday before, for the whole week, if you’re super busy and don’t have time to cook.
3. You must drink 3-4L of water EVERY DAY.
4. You will eat every 2-3 hours throughout the day.
5. You will workout 1 hr a day 5-6x a week for quickest results.
6. Our challenge starts today Oct 24, 2011 and ends Jan 22, 2012.
Here’s your weekly POP workout calendar:
Monday: Total Body.
Begin the week with an awesome full body routine! (If there’s a new vid, do that first though!) Pick 50 minutes worth of POP Pilates Total Body videos to sculpt and end with 2 rounds of POP Cardio or POP HIITS to melt fat.
Tuesday: Upper Body & Back.
Wednesday: Abs & Obliques!
Perfect mid week pick-me-up with core strengthening moves! Pick 50 minutes of POP Pilates Abs and POP Pilates Oblique & Muffintop videos to flatten that belly and end with 2 rounds of POP Cardio or POP HIITS to let those defined abs of yours peak through.
Thursday: Lower Body.
Time to tighten the legs and tone up your booty! Pick 50 minutes of POP Pilates Legs & Thighs and POP Pilates Butt videos for an amazing lower body shaper and end with 2 rounds of POP Cardio or POP HIITS to get those sexy runner’s legs.
Friday: Mix it up!
Rest! Spend time with friends and fam and get your meals ready for the week.
THAT IS IT!!! Simple enough right? Make sure to log EVERYTHING you are doing on your blogs so that your fellow POPsters can be inspired by how hard you push yourself. Tell us what you’re eating, how you feel, what videos you did, and most importantly…how sore you are!!! (Oh don’t forget to take a “before” pic of your front, back, and sides in a bikini or in your bra and underwear. No need to post. This is for self reflection later on.)
Also, I noticed that when I sent out the plan, not everyone got it. Can you guys check your settings and make sure you’re not just following my blog, but are allowing me to email you? Because this is your first time and the challenge has already started, I’m gonna be nice and just share the meal plan link right here. But please, try to fix your Google Friend Connect account settings for future mailings!
Starting this on Monday! It’s gonna kick my ass but maybe it’s exactly what I need to get on track. Wish me luck!
