…well not really. But of course my boot campers did not believe me when I told them I use to struggle with eating right & exercising. And they NEVER believe me when I tell them to stay off the scale.
I showed them these pictures:
I then heard…”Oh my god Courtney, you were fat!”
Again, not really. There is just a measly two pound difference in my before/after picture.
My before picture:
Sugary Cereal (maybe a few cookies) -Breakfast
Diet Dr Pepper- Snack
Bagel + Cream Cheese – Lunch
M&Ms/Candy Bar- Snack
Homemade Dinner/To Go Food- Dinner
20 Minute Elliptical
15 Minutes of “Strength” Training meaning grabbing 5lb dumbbells and doing a few curls, etc.
My after picture:
I eat WAY more! Feel fuller and feel better
Protein/Vegetable/Complex Carb- Lunch
Protein Shake- Snack
I avoid eating out.
I avoid sodas.
I avoid processed foods.
I do not eat white rice/breads.
I plan my cheat meals.
I still get my vices in, don’t you worry of chocolate + wine, but I enjoy them more when I earn them after a great week of eating right & exercising.
Believe it or not, I still exercise around 35-40 minutes. I move quickly through circuits, resting very little and keep track of my weights/exercises I have planned before walking into the gym.
A personal trainer or group fitness instructor truly can be a life saver! They plan the workouts for you!
I never weigh myself. The scale to me really is just a number, I go by the way my pants fit and how I feel overall.
Even though the picture shows just 2lbs lost, it feels like 20+ to me.
