@chelseapb: Started back to my fasted cardio this morning and of course I wore my waist cincher from @bombshellcurves Having this injury to my foot has left me pretty unmotivated lately, but I know this is only a set back if I let it become one. Staying as focused as possible! Everyone has their opinions about products, but I love my cincher and have noticed a BIG difference since I have been wearing it consistently. My core is tighter and smaller. If you are considering ordering one use the code SAVE10 for 10% off bombshellcurves.com. Hope everyone has an amazing week and happy Monday!
Here’s the meal plan…
*egg white omelet (1/2 cup liquid egg whites) with 1 cup broccoli.
*1 small can tuna with 2 cups broccoli.
*9 oz boneless skinless steamed chicken breast and 1 cup steamed green beans.
*1.5 scoops vanilla whey protein mixed w/ water (I was using Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey Protein Powder in Vanilla)
*9 oz boneless skinless steamed chicken breast, 2 cups romain lettuce, 1 tomato.
1.5 scoops vanilla whey protein mixed w/ water
For condiments I used lite soy sauce and tabasco. For dressings, basalmic vinegar or very light vinaigrettes. I also drank TONS of water.
That’s basically how I ate for 8 weeks.
I was suppose to carb load on Sundays to fuel up for the rest of the week, so the only difference here was that I did not take my protein and instead had sweet potatoes, black beans, oatmeal, and apple sauce. Apple sauce was the closest I ever got to eating fruit. I was allowed to sub the chicken breast for white fishes like cod. I could sub any of the veggies for other leafy greens.
This meal plan and lifting for about an hour followed by 15-20 min of intense cardio 6 days a week helped me go from 126 lbs and 24% body fat to 118 lbs and 17.5% body fat. I am 5’5”.
I’m not gonna lie, it was hard work but I LOVED every second of it. I went to sleep every night waiting to workout. I woke up every morning ready to workout. Results keep me going like a mad woman. How exciting is it to lose a lb every week for 8 weeks? It is one of the best feelings ever! I also loved looking at myself in the mirror and admiring changes like a conceited bi-otch. I know some people are all about the whole “don’t look at yourself until the end” type of deal, but for me, NO WAY!!! I wanna see that I look good and I wanna see it NOW! (Ok, kinda childish but hey, who doesn’t like a lil instant gratification?)
Just in case you haven’t been following this blog for a while, this whole 8 Week Shred thing was an experiment I was doing with my friend who is a personal trainer. We wanted to test out a specific meal plan and workout plan and record results. It was tough for both of us to be on such a restricted diet plan and yes I did have cravings. But I knew at the end of this, I’d have the body I’ve always dreamed of. So, that kept me going.
I am no longer on this meal plan and I have definitely added fruits back into my diet. I still however eat tons of protein and steamed veggies. And I still workout 6 days a week because I love it.

Reblogging because I miss this beautiful man!
It’s back and sexy!
a lot of people don’t like the hodge twins, I think they’re pretty funny and have a pretty good fitness channel on youtube
Hodge Twins have solid advice and have helped me out. They are pretty funny but I know humor like theirs isn’t for everyone.
