For this month, I’m working hard to lean up some. When it comes to my workouts, that means fairly heavy weights and moderate reps with little rest. Cardio? Intervals 3xs a week.
For my diet? I’m sticking to lean proteins, a couple pieces of fruit a day, and vegetables every time I eat. And I’m only eating grains right after a weight training workout. It’s not a difficult way to eat -I like it most of the time. I’ve even found a way to get those veggies into my breakfast (and my late evening meal). The secret? A smoothie.
Yes. It might sound strange, but it’s working amazingly well for me.
I begin preppin my “smoothie’ by cutting some summer squash, some cucumber, adding some edamame, and maybe some spinach. I throw from fresh berries on top, add 1.5-2Cups of cold water and a scoop of protein powder. Chocolate or vanilla both work well.
The entire mess is whizzed in my blender until it’s fairly smooth.
I’m amazed how this fills me up! Hopefully by the end of the month, it will also show as a leaner me lets my muscles show through.
