G-Morning lovelies! So I skipped last week, but I am back at it this week. So my updates are as follows:
1. I have worked it HARD in the gym 3-4 times a week and have done a workout at home every week
2. MOST of my days, I do in fact finish that 1 gallon jug of water. I'd say 5/7 days I completely finish it and the other 2 days, I get close.
3. My eating has been superb! I tried this yummy recipe via Skinnytaste on Tuesday night and it was so yummy! Spicy & flavorful. I mean, very spicy. Like, even if you aren't a milk drinker, you better have a
glass gallon on hand.

So this past week I've been sorta hoping on the Weight Watchers train. I only really do it with dinner, because I know what I eat and how much I eat during the day are lower calories. Nicky poo is even grabbed a seat on the "Lets get ridiculously hot before Mexico" train. So, since its easy counting wise, he is taking the Smart Ones frozen meals to work. Ive seen nothing but amazing results from all y'all, so lets hope we get your results!
At the gym, I've been sucking in the weight lifting department. I seriously LOVE lifting weights, but I've become obsessed with shredding some el bee's around the muscles I do have. Im doing HIIT cardio every time I step foot in the gym. I haven't set anything in stone yet, but pretty sure I'll be continuing the straight cardio for the rest of this week, and then next week start lifting again. The point of HIIT is vs. regular cardio, you continue to burn calories 32 hours after you've already left the gym. You can use any cardio equipment, but what I've been doing is a total of 30 minutes on the treadmill and sprinting (9mph) for 1 minute, then walking 1 minute at 3.8 mph. Oh and I do a light jog (6.2mph) for 10 minutes prior to the sprint/walks.
No pic this week, as I am too lazy to take one, HA! But I promise my love handles and saddle bags are for reals diminishing.
