1. how much weight have you lost?
i originally lost 86 pounds, but the last 10 of those pounds came off in a not so healthy way (which i explain in my journey posts), then i put those 10 pounds back on and stay at that weight for awhile. then slacked off some and now am up around 20 pounds from my lowest weight. i’m slowly working my way back down but this time as healthy as i possibly can!
2. what do you eat? what do your meals look like now?
see my what i ate wednesday posts to get a glimpse into what i eat. i’m also following the iifym idea of eating right now. please see the iifym website for more information.
3. what are macros?
macros are short for macronutrients. they are energy-providing substances that are consumed in large quantities in our everyday diets, including carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. each of these three macros provide us with energy in the form of calories.
all three (carbs, fats, & protein) are needed in the diet because they all perform vital functions in the body.
4. what type of workouts do you do?
i do 2 body pump classes followed by 30 minutes of cardio twice a week, 2 orange theory classes a week (1/2 cardio, 1/2 weight training, hour long classes), 1 day of power yoga, and then 1 day of strictly cardio (about an hour long session if possible)
5. how many days a week do you work out?
i’m currently working out 5 to 6 days a week.
