Final Week: Get Your Booty Beach Ready

AWC > Fitness & Weightloss > Week 3:  Get Your Booty Beach Ready 

This weekend we are heading to the beach; good ol' Ocean City, Maryland.  The past 3 weeks have been devoted to getting my booty and yours beach ready.  This final week of preparation is very important.  Stay focused and you will have great confidence knowing that your 4 weeks of hard work have made a difference.  And there's not many things more beautiful than a confident woman.

The tip of the week is:  

Avoid the unhealthy trigger foods that lead to Temptationville.

We are sweating hard with our Killer Workouts of the Week, but that is only half of the puzzle.  I would actually argue that what goes in your mouth is more vital to getting the results you want than how much you sweat-it-out.  Triggers are those less-healthy foods that you love and once you've taken a bite of them, it's hard to stop.  They trigger a response in your body that leads to almost irresistible cravings for more.  These buggers are the top saboteurs of weight loss and fitness goals.

I know that my top triggers are white bread and sugar, so I am completely avoiding them this week.  It sounds hard, right?  Well yeah, it is, especially in the first couple of days.  If you can make it through the first 48 hours then you will notice it gets a lot easier to avoid your triggers because you will stop craving them.

Let's face it - changing eating habits isn't easy.  How we eat has been ingrained in us since birth.  Probably many of our most beloved memories and family traditions revolve around food.  Wether they meant to or not, our parents shared their unhealthy eating habits with us.  Discipline and planning are key to eating healthy all week.

You have to find your own drive and discipline, but I can help with the planning.  Here is the outline of my nutrition plan for the week.  And if you follow me on Facebook I'll be posting recipes along the way too.

Breakfast Choices:
Mid-Morning Snack Choices:
  • fruit & veggie protein smoothie 
  • apple with 1 tbsp. all natural almond butter 
  • fresh cut veggies with 1 tbsp. light dressing for dipping (carrots, celery, broccoli...whatever you like best)
Lunch Choices:
** The great thing about this salad and soup is that you can make them at the beginning of the week and store them in the fridge (salad) or freezer (soup) in individual portions.  That way lunch is already taken care of throughout the week.

Afternoon Snack Choices:
  • fruit & veggie protein smoothie
  • 1 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 slice whole grain toast with all natural almond butter
Dinner Choices:
** I usually only plan 4 or 5 dinners in a week because we usually have left-overs to eat on 2-3 nights.
