Tuesday, August 11th

Well, the weekend went EXACTLY according to plan. I ate the pasta for my dad's birthday on Friday and avoided so many goodies...fresh breads, cheeses, salami, etc. I did have a small piece of birthday cake right after. Therefore, my Sunday "cheat" meal was hardly a cheat. I ordered grilled shrimp scewer salad with balsamic vinagarette dressing on the side. I also asked for plain vinegar. The salad was made up of lettuce, a few tomatoes, some shredded carrots, onion and 5 grilled shrimp. I barely touched the fatty dressing and mainly used the plain vinegar. I resisted the hot steamy rolls and butter that were served before dinner and I didn't drink any alcohol, only water. I did my HIIT on the treadmill on Saturday as planned.

Yesterday was upper body at the gym. I am really feeling it in my triceps this morning. I wish I was feeling it more in my back and shoulders (2 areas I REALLY need to work on). My diet was on point all day.

I am about to go to the gym and do today's HIIT. I like to do it on an empty stomach whenever possible. I am thinking about making protein pancakes when I get back. I've never tried them and hopefully they turn out ok with chocolate protein powder. I have a ton of cleaning to do today and I also want to find a health food store in this town.

If you have never seen pictures of fitness model Jamie Eason, do yourself a favor and google her for some motivation. What I would do to have those legs!


  1. Congrats on doing as planned! I am great at planning but sometimes don't do well with the follow through.

  2. OH MY! I have never seen that picture of Jamie. DAMN!!! She is smokin! I show my husband pics of fitness chicks all the time and he usually doesnt like them. He says, "ewwww too much muscle." However, I KNOW he would like that one. She is the perfect specimen...fit yet still very feminine.

    GREAT job staying on plan!!!!! I know it feels really good to stay on track despite temptations.

  3. It always feels so nice to come out of the weekend feeling like you stayed on track (it's been too long for me).

    Let's see some progress pics!
