Okay, it’s time to get a bit real. The past few weeks haven’t been all happy go lucky. I’m not sure what was going on but there were many things that happened. For starters, after my clean eating week where I reached 140lbs, I gained back 2 pounds as expected but then started going down like crazy. I even hit the 130′s!
To make it weirder was I was eating about 300-400 more calories than normal. Weirder? I was doing no activity except for the occasional yoga for 30 minutes. My shoulder pain was too severe to do any weight lifting. I am not sure what was going on, so I went to the doctor’s last week to get a blood test.
I don’t have any results yet but for the past two weeks I have been eating about 2,000 calories (from my normal 1600-1700) and trying to put on some weight, the healthy way. More nut butters, oils, nuts, whole eggs… that sort of stuff. It has been working and I am up to 144lbs. I no longer see my ribs like crazy and I must say, it was starting to freak me out.
But after not doing any weight lifting for almost a month, I am a bit soft. So what’s a girl to do? Redo DAMY’s Bikini Body, the workout portion mainly. The only think I will change from the nutrition (which I advise you not too) is, I am going to do carbs at dinner on the days I work later.
I have dinner at around 5:00pm and my work doesn’t end til 8:00pm. I am still very active after dinner, so I do need that extra energy. This is three times a week, so the remaining four I will stick to the plan for dinner.
I need to get back to a workout routine and Bikini Body always helps me get back on the saddle. Plus I need to build up my muscle again. A month of no weights, is starting to show in my arms and thighs.
This fits perfect because I am being summoned to do Hot for Halloween again on YouTube. I miss my YouTubers (not that I don’t love all of you guys!) and can’t wait to get back on the video wagon.
For tomorrow, I am going to go into the workout and food plan. Hope you don’t mind the lack of photos, but sometimes a blogger has to get real.
And hey! Did you miss the breakfast foods/snacks giveaway? It ends Sunday (but since I’ve been a bit crazy and non-existing, I might extend it a day or two). Good night!
