Healthy Eating

Good afternoon!

Today’s Workout:

  • Practiced BodyPump – 60 minutes
  • Women on Weights class – 45 minutes

I got the new BodyPump release last week and I started practicing it this morning! It’s going to be a good one!

After practicing for a little while, I headed to the gym to take the Women on Weights class. I am still trying to be really careful with my hip since it still hurts a lot. I did what I was able to do and skipped doing the squats.

Getting Back on Track

Danny and I haven’t been eating the best lately and I know that I have gained a few pounds which is making me not happy. We decided to really get back on track with healthy eating. Yesterday, we took before pictures and our weight and measurements.

I haven’t taken my measurements in a really long time and it’s a great way to track your progress. So many people are focused on the scale, but if you’re building muscle your weight might not drop but your measurements will and your clothes will fit better. We are going to take a progress picture once a week and track our measurements once a month.

It feels a lot better to have a plan in place!

Last night, we cooked on the grill. We made extra chicken breasts to eat throughout the week. I also made grilled shrimp which were delicious.

I have never really been a shrimp fan but my aunt made them at my cousin’s house a few weekends ago and they were so delicious that I had to try out her recipe.

I also used shrimp in my lunch today.

I cooked broccoli slaw with garlic, onions, mini peppers, and light soy sauce. Then I added the shrimp and let them cook about two minutes per side.

I added some fruit and it was the perfect lunch! I will definitely be making this again.

I also roasted veggies in the oven and put them in Tupperware for the week. Eating healthy is so much easier when you prep food. I don’t always do this but when I do I am always happy how fast and easy it makes meal time!

    I am glad to hear you like shrimp now! That recipe is good :)

  3. I love burgers on the grill!

  4. I love shrimp, especially grilled. Yum!! Good luck on getting back into the healthy eating groove. Why does all the non healthy stuff have to taste so good?!

  5. I really need to do my measurements, too. I’ve been working a lot on building muscle and as result it’s been hard to track if I’ve been loosing weight or not. I need a tape now!
