I survived day 1 of the 7 Day Slimdown which I talked about yesterday, phew. It is definitely tougher than I remembered and I can see why I struggled with it before. I’ve been hungry, not going to lie, but I just ate Meal 5 and I’m feeling good. I’m hoping to get better on the timing of my meals (making sure that I absolutely eat every 2-3 hours) to prevent that super hungry feeling.
7 Day Slimdown Day 1 Full Recap:
BootyCall: A quick 30 minute AM walk/jog around my neighborhood
M1: Slimdown scramble w/ Canadian Bacon
M2: A huge grapefruit
M3: Grilled chicken breast with greens and veggies and an apple
M4: A YUMMY chocolate peanut butter protein powder smoothie w/ unsweetened almond milk (check out this post to see what protein powder I use)
Cardio: 30 minute incline power walk on the treadmill
Toning: This weight training routine and I even printed it out and took a pencil to track the amount of weight I lifted! I’m trying to get real serious about getting stronger and I’m hoping this will stick.
M5: Grilled salmon filet, serving of brown rice and greens!
M6: Lemon and ginger tea!
Water Intake: 96 ounces! This is the most water I’ve had in a day in a long while.
This is going to be hard, but I think I can do it. It’s pretty tedious but at least day one is down. I will say that I do feel lighter in a way because I’ve been eating so many veggies and it feels like my body is really happy about that. And, I hit 156 grams of protein today which is impressive for me. That’s all folks! I’m going to head to bed soon so I can get up in time to do it all over again tomorrow.
