Anyways, LIFE IS BUSY! My husband has school two nights a week for his electrical apprentice, I have school two nights a week for pre nursing (which is seriously hard - chemistry and anatomy and im not sure I'll survive), the boys are finishing up with basketball, baseball starts this week, Cody has jujitsu two days a week, I started cleaning a house for extra money every other Thursday, and I've had a good amount of photo shoots these last few months! Whew! Crazy! But I've been doing really well with being consistent with my work outs and heavy lifting. I'm definitely addicted.
I do Monday/Thursday Leg/Glute day, Tuesday/Friday is upper body- biceps, triceps, back, chest, and my favorite... Shoulders!
These two pics are exactly one year apart. I WEIGH THE SAME. 182 and 182. Seriously. I'm down 3-4 dress sizes (from 16-10) and the other day I fit into a SIZE 8 skinny jeans!
I still have lots of fluff. But I'm so excited with my progress. For the first time in forever I can say... I DONT CARE about the scale! I spent all 2015 frustrated trying to get out of the 180's. I would literally get so mad at the scale i'd blow that whole day with my food and have a mini binging attitude.
I'm at peace now. I stopped weight watchers because they focus on the scale, I do Flexible dieting, I eat what I want (very low sugar for health), I eat 1763 calories a day, count my macros to hit those goals, (110 carbs 110 protein 98 fat because that's what I FEEL best on). But I don't freak out if I have an off day because I'm still in the gym almost everyday working hard.
So I finally realized, am I trying to lose WEIGHT or lose FAT? I am the same weight in both of the top photos! Heavy lifting has changed me! I am strong, I feel amazing, and I'm excited! This was today, Monday's are my hardest work out days, kick boxing and leg day.
