Alright, it’s about that time. Momma’s gotta get back in shape. I’ve had this discussion many times in regards to diet. What works best for me is typically a low carb diet. Here’s my breakdown of what I’m going to do for you fellow mom’s out there that want to tag along in my journey.
Week 1-4: Very low carb, high protein, moderate-high healthy fat
Typical day will consist of:
Breakfast- 4 egg whites & bacon or turkey sausage
Snack-Protein shake (just powder and water or almond milk)
Lunch- Grilled Chicken, broccoli and 1/3 cup of nuts
Dinner- Salmon or beef with asparagus or a big salad with olive oil
After Week 4, I will add carbs back in fruit form. I will begin to follow the Paleo plan, and not count calories or protein/fat/carb ratios. If I find that I need to switch things up, or that I am losing slower than I should, I’ll begin to look more at the ratios, but I think this will work just fine.
As far as working out, I’ll be doing CrossFit 2-3 times a week. I also plan on running at least 2 days, whether it be with the kids in the jogging stroller, or running the hills around my neighborhood. I’ll probably break out my Insanity DVD’s as well for some variety. I love some Shaun T!
