I’m so close to my pre-pregnancy weight that I can taste it. I knew it was going to be harder after baby #2 but I’m starting to get frustrated.
So, instead of repeating the same actions of the past few weeks that have been getting me very little results..I’m going to change things up a bit. Albert Einstein’s definition of insanity is ‘Repeating the same action/process over and over again expecting different results.’
And I think that’s what most of do. I’m guilty of it for sure. In all areas of my life, some of which I can’t control. But I can control my nutrition and fitness. For example, today was a crazy day with the kids and I knew I wasn’t going to have time to do my 40 minute total body circuit and my 20 minute HIIT at the same time, so instead of just giving up since I couldn’t find an entire hour for myself today..I did the strength part this morning while the girl while napping and then my cardio after the kids went to bed tonight. It sucked…I was tired…but I did it.
While I was putting my DVD in and hitting play on my Jackie Warner circuit work out, the insert serendipitously fell out. I read her book when it first came out..but as usual I am way too ADD to follow a formal diet. But this insert made the five day meal plan look like nutrition for dummies. And since what I’m doing now isn’t working…I’m going to give Jackie the next five days and see how closely I can stick to it.
Up first for Day One:
Breakfast – 2 low-fat tortillas stuffed with 2 scrambled eggs with salsa
Snack – 1 cup lowfat cottage cheese and one piece of fruit
Lunch – Mixed veggie salad with chicken breast, 2 tablespoons of salad dressing, 1 slice whole grain bread
Snack – 1 banana
Dinner – 2 oz of lean protein with 1 cup veggies and 1 baked sweet potato
Post Dinner – 1 decaf green tea mixed with one favorite herbal tea
It’s all good up until that post dinner tea. That’s not gonna happen. Hopefully substituting my nightly Healthy Choice fudge bar won’t make that big a difference. Or is that one of those ‘insanity’ things again?
