Yesterday, I was having all sorts of fears about not being able to accomplish my goal of building muscle over the next 90 days…fears about not having full transparency into what’s happening with my body as I put in all of this work.
Well, this morning, all those fears vanished.
You know why?
Take a look:
Same workout, 1 week later, and I was able to increase my weight in nearly every exercise. I love being able to literally SEE my myself getting stronger. Regardless of what is happening on the scale, regardless of what I look like, the real evidence of change is that my muscles can handle more, and THAT, my friends – IS COOL.
I am 100% confident that the 90 Day Journey to muscle is heading in the right direction now and I am full of joy. I trust the process.
(BTW, I am wearing the new Alpine Bra and Hourglass Shorts from the brand new POPFLEX Basics II Collection that drops about 24 hours from now! I am OBSESSED with this mocha color. I need EVERYTHING in mocha!!!)
I am reposting my Month 1 workouts because I decided to tweak things a bit. Kinda overdid it on the lower body workouts because I was afraid my booty wouldn’t grow enough (it’s the last place to see change) but I really missed doing my arm workouts, so added in some of my fave shoulder and tricep exercises into Day 6.
Otherwise, I am DIGGING this workout plan. I can’t believe I only have 3 more weeks of it, then I gotta switch things up! Next month I am already thinking I will ladder it up and play with heavier weights and less reps as each set progresses.
Now, here is my week 2 meal plan!
Meal 1 is smashed avocado on top of rice cakes with tomatoes and an egg white omelet side.
Meal 2 is a fave from last week! My savory oats! But this time, I took out the zucchini and am using all spinach with the chicken and oats. I noticed that all the zucchini I was eating last week was bloating me weirdly.
Meal 3 AND 5 are my Supersculpt Protein Pancakes! (I just decided that THAT is what they shall be called because they really are super!) And yes. I am going to have protein pancakes 2x a day this week because I am obsessed. We’ll see if I still feel that way about em next week 😛
Meal 4 is big ole salad of chicken with air fried butternut squash with a side egg white omelet with shiitake mushrooms. Also currently testing out a homemade yogurt sauce for dressing – will update you once I perfect the flavors, but so far, very promising!
I was very satisfied, very full and had tons of energy on last week’s plan, so I wanted to keep everything the same-ish this week. Protein is still around 155g and cals are in the 1550’s.
Alright, that is all! It’s 11:09pm and I have once again FAILED my duty to go upstairs at 9pm and be asleep by 10:30pm. UGH. Need to take my sleep as seriously as my workouts. Why is it so hard for me??
