We Only Get Stronger

Happy Saturday everyone!

I am in a fabulous mood. Why? After my work shift I will be heading to the big apple to celebrate my 26th birthday. I am super excited and it’s going to be a nice 3 day, 2 nights “vacation.” I need a break for sure. I’ve been working and training a lot, so it will be quite nice. But don’t think I am going to just not train now y’all. We keep pushing and we only get stronger by doing so!This week my meal plan changed drastically. The majority of my carbs came from fruits and veggies and I ate a ton of almonds, egg whites, lean ground turkey and Garden of Life raw protein powders. I had no “starches.” It was definitely a challenge. There were a couple of times I wanted to give in an have oats but I pushed through. This was just for the week, more of a slim down type thing for my birthday. But I felt much tighter when I woke up in the morning. Not to mention very little to NO dairy. I am lactose intolerant anyway and I couldn’t believe how much better I felt without dairy (note that dairy, rice and oats was for the week before!). I was also not as bloated everyday, which was nice and probably would explain the tighter feeling in the morning. Also hydrated with tons of coconut water like this one from Amazon!I like this particular brand because this flavor is awesome mixed with green tea and it also has #cupuacu, which is supposed to help strengthen your immune system!

I hope everyone has a great weekend and “see you” when I am 26! :)

    I don’t eat a ton of dairy either – it makes my stomach upset :( I do eat Fage Greek Yogurt everyday but I think I may give up dairy once the baby comes. I’ve heard it can help with allergies for them and, like you said, it just feels better to cut it out!
