If you have been following this blog, you will remember that in the start of year I was hoping to lose some weight and get in shape. I had joined a Crossfit box, and was really enjoying it. Well as was destined to happen, life got in they way, and after about a month I wasn’t able to drop the $150 a month nor the time to get my WOD on.
Recently I decided that I was going to try and drop as much weight as I could, as quickly as I could. The best way I know how to do that is to kick the carbs, and drop the calories. So with a meal plan consisting of primarily egg whites, tomatos, chicken, asparagus, and protein shakes, I am happy to say I dropped 20 lbs and 2 pant sizes in the last 30 days. I also hit the gym 25 of those 30 days for an hour and a half spread across the treadmill, stairmaster, and rowing machine.
It was a lot of hard work, but now it is time to maintain that loss. With that said, now the calories go back up, and the carbs are re introduced. Obviously I can’t go back to the Jack in the Box or McDonald’s meal plans I was on before, but I can’t just eat boneless skinless chicken breast and broccoli for the rest of my life.
