So, this week was the last week of my muscle/strength building workout. Here are the official results:
As you can see, some mixed results. However, I am excited that I know I have gotten stronger. Using 10lbs for lights and 12.5lbs for heavy is awesome!
I really attribute a lot of my success so far with cleaning up my eating and meal prep. It started small really, I had already cut out most red meat except the occasionally eating out of steak or a burger. I watched a few documentaries such as Forks over Knives and It Starts with Food and decided I wanted to go for a more plant l-based diet. Mostly for health benefits but you can’t deny their are definitely issues in the production of all animal products in this country. I will say if I had a chance to raise chickens I would probably still eat eggs and if I had a source for milk from a small dairy farm I might still drink milk. But guess what, I actually feel so much better not eating those things. I won’t say I NEVER eat them, I do still like the occasional real pizza (although I eat far more with no cheese or vegan cheese). I also still use flavored creamer in my milk(guilty pleasure).
For my next round of fitness, I am following an extreme 21 day meal plan and fitness routine. Designed to really shred pounds I am upping my game in meal prep. There are no cheat meals here! Here is a look at some of the things I prepared!
Great tip is to portion out your soups like I did here then freeze. Once solid I pop out and put in a zip lock. Will last 3-6 months that way!
