I have been away for 2 1/2 weeks. I enjoyed the holidays, I enjoyed vacation, I enjoyed family time-I also enjoyed some extra wine and dessert.
Everyday that I was gone, I made sure to get my workout in. I watched what I ate, and drank my water, but I still enjoyed myself. Now that I am home I am ready to whip my butt into shape, literally. I haven’t stepped on the scale yet, but I am sure I am up 2-3 pounds, which I am okay with.
I recently upgraded my Beachbody account so I get access to every workout Beachbody has ever created!! Monday I will be starting a new program 22 minute Hard Corps. It will be a nice change from the mixed martial arts inspired workouts I have been doing, its always fun to change it up.
For those that don’t know, 22 minute Hard Corps is a 22 minute long, military inspired workout program. Its quick and effective, designed to get you maximum results in minimum time, using your own body weight plus a little resistance.
The eating plan is pretty much the same with what I have been following except you are suppose to eat your carbs at breakfast and lunch for the calorie bracket I am in.
My meal plan will look as follows:
Breakfast– 1 green, 1 purple, 1 red, 1 yellow, 1 tsp
Shake-1 purple, 1 red, 1 tsp
Lunch-1 green, 1 red, 1 yellow, 1 orange, 1 tsp
Snack– 1 blue
Dinner-1 green, 1 red , 1 tsp
My favorite part of a new workout program is the meal plan inspiration. Here are some ideas for eating while completing 22 minute hard corps.
