Playing catch up!

The past 2 weeks have honestly been a blur. When I returned home from Las Vegas, I had a lot of catching up to do. I didn’t workout for 2 days while on vacation, so I had to workout Saturday (as scheduled) & Sunday (usually my rest day). And of course I had to face the inevitable doom of unpacking, and endless laundry to do, OK I lie, my husband did most of it. We work on the organizing together, and well that’s been on the back burner forever, and things have been piling up! It’s been an overwhelming transition. My blog has been on hold slightly. I wanted to update my readers on some changes I’ve made in the last 2 weeks that helped make the transition from vacation mode to weightloss-

  • Decreased my calorie intake from 1900 to 1400
  • Focused on a low-fat diet, and to include balanced portions of carbohydrates and protein
  • Switched to tilapia for lunch (you can season tilapia in a multiple of ways, my newest flavor obsession is Mrs. Dash salt free Fiesta blend!).
  • If I eat beef, it’s at night (nothing wrong with beef, just focus on using leaner cuts like flank!)
  • Created a new balanced routine

Here is my new routine in detail-

  • MONDAY STRENGTH TRAINING: Arms & shoulders

CARDIO: High intensity interval training for 30 minutes (5 minute warm up & 5 minute cool down)

  • TUESDAY STRENGTH TRAINING: Legs

CARDIO: 2 times a day-steady pace at 3.4 mph, and an incline of 7.0 for 40 minutes (5 minute cool down

  • WEDNESDAY- CARDIO: 2 times a day-steady pace at 3.4 mph, and an incline of 7.0 for 40 minutes (5 minute cool down
  • THURSDAY- STRENGTH TRAINING: Chest & Arms

CARDIO: High intensity interval training for 30 minutes (5 minute warm up & 5 minute cool down)

  • FRIDAYSTRENGTH TRAINING: Legs

CARDIO: 2 times a day-steady pace at 3.4 mph, and an incline of 7.0 for 40 minutes (5 minute cool down

  • SATURDAY-STRENGTH TRAINING: Chest & Arms

CARDIO: High intensity interval training for 30 minutes (5 minute warm up & 5 minute cool down)

I absolutely love my updated routine. Adding high intensity interval training allows me to sleep in an extra hour Monday & Thursday. I’ve seen great improvement overall. Who doesn’t love an extra hour of sleep!

What changes do you make when you come home from a vacation? What helps you transition back to your normal routine?

I hope to post the physical changes tomorrow, it’s my weigh in day-I’m nervous, yet excited!
