Hi all and sorry for the bad blogging but I am in my intense summer work period which will last the remaining summer and the days I am not working we do things with the family since the boys now all have vacation=)
But I will of course blog now and then and otherwise follow me in instagram=)
So, for those of you who want to follow my diet and Body for life challenge I´ve instagrammed about I promised to write down about this and here´s some of what I´ve been eating and exercising this first week.
If you´ve never heard of Body for Life, go check their web page: http://bodyforlife.com
to read more and maybe do a challenge yourselves? I promise it works since I´ve done this before, like before Nightwish where I was really in great shape!
So why do I do this diet? Well, its for many reasons but the most important one is that I´ve been eating to little for some time due to stress and that has made me tired, without energy, sad, feeling low and also not being able to be my normal happy person.
So now I do this to get back in a happier mode, a stronger body and a healthier person again.
So I eat 6 meals a day, small ones during the day and the food list u can find at bodyforlife.com and I don't eat gluten. I have one day that is my eating day, or a free day so to say where I can eat whatever I want and how much I want. Candy, cookies, good food or wine you decide yourself.
I also exercise 6 days a week and every second day its 20 minutes of interval cardio exercise and the other 3 weight exercise. To read more about how to perform this go to the website: bodyforlife.com
the key to success in this program that lasts for 3 months (or longer) is to plan everything ahead. Prepare meals, do lunch boxes for work and so on and plan every exercise ahead and for this I use a book from Fitnessguru where I write down and plan everything ahead and also write down all weights I use so I can make progress and see how I am moving forward.
Here´s some of my meals this week for inspiration:
Salmon, brown rice, spinach and sweet and sour sauce
Baked potato, cottage cheese, chunky salsa, beef and veggies
One of my favourite evening meals before bedtime is casein pudding with berries. I use chocolate the most and get mine from MMsports.
Glutenfree tortilla bread, cottages cheese, beef and veggies
Another great snack at work or at home is cottage cheese and berries
Almost the same but minced meat instead
For work brown rice, minced meat and veggies and salsa
Casein pudding again but not pina colada taste=)
Also a great snack in between is gluten free hard dark bread with cottage cheese and some spices on top
Favourite breakfast is either overnight oats if I work early shift or this: oats, protein powder vanilla taste from MATTERS with berries, milk and stevia
Or like here with strawberries
I workout mostly at FNF4LIFE where I do cardio in form of spinning and then weights in the gym as well as some crossfit exercises. I also work out at home and then I use tabata and my jump rope and other jumps.
I´ll tell more about the progress but now u know some more and read more in Bodyforlife of course=) And I am not endorsed by them, but I know it works!
