Week 1 Roundup: Bikini Booty Challenge
What can change in one week?
Two inches lost, abs popping a bit more, back muscles starting to show. Not half bad.
I'm headed into Week 2 of my Bikini Booty Challenge, which includes a full round of The Master's Hammer & Chisel and daily Shakeology. After 7 days of intense workouts, I'm feeling it.
My arms, legs and core were sore most of last week. Luckily I had a tub of Beachbody's Performance Recover handy, so I started mixing that into my shake each morning. The drink helps with muscle recovery so you won't be as sore - and it definitely did the job.
My first weekend (days 6 & 7) were pretty off on my nutrition. While I kept up with my Shakeology, I ate out for multiple meals (and carb loaded) and had vodka on both Friday and Saturday nights. Despite the drinks, I got my workouts in. It could have been worse though.
Week #2 Meal Plan
I'm actually taking my nutrition seriously this time around. I've been half on - half off with my nutrition since I got back in April from traveling.
I love that this program comes with a nutrition plan to follow, and sample recipes as well. I picked out a couple to use this week and meal prepped on Sunday evening.
On the menu this week:
- 99% Lean Turkey Meat
- Black Beans
- Brussels Sprouts
- Sweet Potatoes
- Fat Free Shredded Cheese
On Sunday I meal prep the majority of the proteins (chicken, ground turkey) and chopped up my veggies. I have the luxury of working from home, so I like to prep the veggies "live" each day with their meals. Cooking the protein ahead of time saves me time so I just pull from the portions that I need.
I follow the Portion Fix container routine - which guides me on how much of different types of foods to eat each day. I'm in the 1200-1499 bracket, so I eat the following:
4 servings protein
3 servings veggies
2 servings fruit
2 servings carbs
1 serving healthy fats
1 serving seeds
2 servings oils
Monday (Day 8) went off without a hitch, so I'm excited to keep this healthy nutrition plan up! I plan to still go out this weekend, but want to keep my eating in better control than I did this past weekend.
