Day 9/60 motivation of LF Challenge.
7am quinoa pooridge with cocoa nibs, pea protein, mandarin, almond milk, cinnamon, cocoa powder (400 calories 41g carbs 25g protein 15g fat) + Green Tea + Lime Water.
Getting ready to hit the gym by rolling out on a foam roller, then HIIT cardio and warrior sculpt session 😊.
Btw. My clothes are to big on me that I wore working out last year so I literally have to scrunchy them lol. Not looking to buy any new clothes until reached goals. *I can't believe it's been 3+ months since I set my birthday goal almost there 😊 March 5th is coming shortly 😊. Thankful to be eating 5 to 6 meals a day and sleeping 8 hours a night what a change it has been. 😉 Bad habits can creep on you so quickly, I do not even crave refined sugars and salty sensations anymore because I eat fully plant based with nearly 45g of fiber average a day on top of 120g protein. As a vegan athlete i do supplement my vitamin B12, iron, zinc, and potassium through vegetarian multivitamin capsules on top of eating healthy which has probably boosted my energy levels lately on top of drinking green tea and chai tea. In addition, after starting a sports nutrition class I am experimenting with a plant friendly creatine powder for training (at smaller dose mainly because it is found in our cells already and I don't intake animal protein for more) in my smoothies for boosting sprints and reaching higher metabolic VO2 (during ATP to ADP synthesis where the body moves to anaerobic glycolysis) level workouts. You gotta find what works for you and go for it. I promise your worth it!
❤ yoga is for all body types. Look at this adorable illustration of dog yoga 😂
That 15 year old cat tho reaching for the doorknob 😂
Day 8 motivation 😉 60 day challenge on the top is day 8! 😉😄 just did 30 min stairmaster and 75 min hot yoga time for meal 2. The key is constantly eating high carbohydrate/protein foods (Say what? 180g of carbohydrates a day.. Yes you burn fat during rest. Duh!!! The more active your body is the more energy intake it needs to repair and build stronger muscles) every 2 to 3 hours and moderate fats (which tends to be caloric dense enjoy nuts, nut butters, avocados, olive oil) with tea and fruit infused water thru the day! Kickstart your metabolism by exercising and eating frequently so you don't indulge when your body is starving! I am almost 20lbs down since my last birthday lets do this! 😉 #healthyhabits#nutrition#healthyeats#fitness#60daychallenge
