One Day at a Time

Standard

Well, the competition is in full swing. It kicked off on Friday and I started the 3-1-2-1 Diet yesterday. I know its only been two days, but I feel in TOTAL control. I am not sure what has changed this time, but I know I can do this, better yet, I WILL do this!

I created a meal plan for my first week, and I stuck to it perfectly yesterday. I will say, around 9pm, I found myself getting hungry, so I grabbed a banana and a few almonds. Even though that was not part of my day, it was a success within itself!

In my workout yesterday, instead of doing 45-60 minutes of cardio which I normally do on Saturdays, I decided to hit total body. I haven’t focused on legs in such a long time and am totally feeling it today, but I was able to get a 115# deadlift in, which is awesome, considering I haven’t done them in quite some time. Its a ways off from my 1RM of 175#, but i’ll get there!

the 3-1-2-1 Diet is built in a way that you will succeed, it provides flexibility but also a lot of structure. So far so good! Try out the recipes below! They are delicious and EASY
