It's time to catch everyone up on my first week of Whole30 plus Carb Cycling. So far, I love this combination together. I am feeling great and I can notice my stomach getting flatter. The only thing I am really missing is gum and baking. If anyone knows me personally, they know I always have gum with me and chew gum throughout the day. I also love baking! I love making healthy treats and baking for other people. I know that 30 days will be over before I know it though. It's crazy to think Week 1 is almost over already. I want to share some pictures from this past week with you.
This is one of my meals from Day 4 (low carb day): 4 oz. chicken breast, 4 oz. sweet potato, 2 tsp coconut oil, and 1 c unsweetened almond milk. Can you tell yellow is my favorite color!
Here is a picture of me at the beginning of Day 3 (Day 2 was high carb day). This was taken when I woke up in the morning. I like to measure my progress by progress pictures of my stomach in the mornings. Your stomach naturally expands some throughout the day due to food intake and water intake.
I have been using Sweet Sweat on my stomach as well during some of my workouts (especially back, leg, and cardio days). I like how much this makes me sweat! * Don't forget to drink more water to make up for all the sweat during workouts*
Here was another day of using Sweet Sweat.
I had to snap a picture for you guys on Leg Day! My hamstrings are so sore today.
Here was a meal from Day 5: 4 oz chicken breast, 1 T homemade almond butter, celery, and kale. I topped it with Frank's Red Hot Sauce.
This is a picture from a meal today. It was one whole egg, 3/4 c egg whites, avocado, and jicama. I also used Frank's Red Hot Sauce on my eggs. I love spicy food! If you have not tried the combination of avocado and eggs... YOU must try it. It's one of my favorites.
I am working on putting together a blog post about my meal prep. I plan on posting it tomorrow, so stay tuned. I will be talking about my meal plan, meal prep, etc.
I hope you all are enjoying your Halloween Saturday!
"It's a beautiful day, don't let it get away."
