The Emotional Diet

I am what 7-8 weeks from my bikini show and due to having a horrible coach, a meal plan that literally wrecked my system up I am having struggles.

Since the show I am up 6lbs - part water, part eating normal food, part boycotting anything that the trainer did to me. 

As the days go on I have come to the point that I have to work through this stuff and admit that he treated me wrong, I paid him to coach me and he damaged me. I am strong enough to admit that. This isn't passing blame but literally accepting and releasing it. The more I talk about the more I release and can get back to me. 

I have gotten back into the swing of things ....kind of. 

I workout 3-5 x a week. Concentrating on HIIT and muscle building. 

Food I have slowly increased my calories up and macros on point. 

Here is the issue because I was given a "meal plan" of pure crap.... 12 almonds and ground turkey and green beans several times a day - I was deprived off so much and what a shitty way to do it.  

So now  I don't want to restrict myself and I am learning to regain my emotional behavior. 

That has lead me into interviewing new trainers and rebuilding my self from a scientific way! And guess what you eat food?? Gasp !!! And fitness and food are part of my life NOT my life. 

This has also lead me to having the right people in my life - supportive people and ones that want to help me not be harmful. One trainer recommended this book to me and I am loving it. It is about living a life that is healthy, happy and trim. The first chapter already captivated me - we are not driven by logic - we are driven by emotion. 
I feel that I have the power to get through this and be the best I have ever been. 
But the first step is admitting that I need to this for me! 
So follow me on my journey of coming back from a bikini show and heading to a life that is a balanced bikini healthy lifestyle. Mind body soul! 

What is a FIT mom???

I was asked what is a FIT mom....

I literally have no clue --- but what I do know is ---what I do day in and day out.

I am a mom.
I am a full time working mom out of the home.
I am a wife.
I am trying to live a healthy lifestyle. 

Being that my schedule is packed from the moment I wake up to the moment I lay down...this life is an organized chaos that is a well balanced lifestyle. 

So as a FIT mom I focus on eatting from home about 90% of the time - what does that mean??? I make breakfast, lunches, dinners for all 4 of us daily/weekly. We pre-plan meals and utilize services like Farm Fresh to you for our fruit and veggies and we started using Hello Fresh as well. We buy a lot of items bulk from sams. 

Working out?? - well I focus on 4-5 days a week at the gym. Now I have to say I utilize our wonderful after school daycare for this. I FIT in the gym and then race to get them to have dinner, homework and family time. What about the Hubs and kiddos? Well the hubs goes before work and the kiddos have PE two days a week and gymnastics. We also enjoy walking to school when we can. Also as a family we try to be active as we can with hiking, bike riding and even kid play zones! 

So what is the key??? Scheduling, balance, FITting it all in. 

I have to say this is a lifestyle ...a journey with no end... Just keep going. 

For me I have to say also having a supportive other half makes this journey worth the time and effort! Common goals and lifestyle! 
We do this because we love ourselves and want to set an example for our children!!!! 

Look I even created my own HIIT workout....a lot in a little amount of time... I should also say 2+ hours in the gym - no way! Nope! That is not a balanced life. I need quality not quantity! 

It works....wraps

So I bit the bullet and I started the wraps!!!! Results to be posted soon! I love this stuff.  

The product is easy and affordable...

I use it on my stomach!!! Will be trying it soon on my legs as well!!
