Wow, the end of week 8 is here! CRAZINESS!!!
Let’s just get right into it.
First off, I was active every day of week 8! I danced 4 times this past week!
I love love LOVEEEE that my 12 week game plan page in my Fit Journal is getting even more filled up!!! My 90th day will be Wed November 13th!
Week 8 recap. Things I need to start? Start to sleep more. Need to seriously be better at this. I’m so bad. I’ve been saying this for weeks now and I am not doing it. But it’s super related to what I need to stop doing…STOP TAKING ON MORE PROJECTS. I need to chill out. ‘Cept I don’t know how. I feel like Sam needs to force me to go on a vacation and take my phone and computer away from me.
Oh but speaking of sleep – I just uploaded a new video with my fave bed time stretches!
Overall though, I felt great mood wise last week.
What am I excited for? I’m excited to share with you my first heels choreo hopefully in next Sunday’s YouTube video!
WEEK 8 WEIGH-IN:
I did not expect very much change this week since last week was so intense. My weight actually went up by 0.4 lbs HOWEVER body fat % decreased by 0.2% and muscle mass increased by 0.1%! Overall, things are moving along accordingly.
In order to hit my goals in the next 30 days, I need to lose about 1.45 lbs a week and about 0.58% body fat each week. I quite certain that I will not be able to hit my “athlete” body fat percentage of 20% in the next 30 days, given my trends over the past 8 weeks. I will need to give more time for that. The weight? Hmm, I don’t know if I can do 1.45 lbs each week…but we shall see! Again, these were goals I set for myself back in mid August to give me direction. If I hit them in this time frame, great. If I don’t, then I can keep going and give myself more time – which is probably what will happen!
19% carbs, 64% fat, 17% protein
4 quail eggs, 2 cauliflower flatbreads, and 1 mashed avocado!
21% carbs, 61% fat, 18% protein
“Beyond Beef” vegan meat (SO GOOD), over romaine lettuce with corn and pico de gallo. Chipotle honey vinaigrette dressing.
POST LUNCH SNACK:
50% carbs, 42% fat, 8% protein
Strawberry Freeze from Pressed Juicery with almond butter, blueberries and strawberries. YUM.
13% carbs, 60% fat, 27% protein
Egg thin tacos with beyond beef, pico de gallo, corn and jalapeno sauce! You only see 4 here…BUT I ATE 8!!!! YUMMMMZERS. I couldn’t stop – it was so good!
Yesterday came in at 1,833 calories, 26% carbs (121g), 57% fat (117g), and 17% protein (78g). It was a totally vegetarian day which was cool. Interesting that my fat intake is still higher than my protein. All those avocados, egg yolks, dressings, and almond butters really add up!
Also, I STILL have not had a chance to truly sit down and read my blood test results in depth. I really need to do this soon. I feel like it’s the perfectionist in me that is keeping me from doing it. It’s like I am afraid I won’t have time to finish all the reading in one sitting so I am not doing it at all until I can find the perfect slot of time. I need to be ok with doing it in segments! I want to get through at least one report tomorrow!
