Four Weeks Down! With Pics!

Well the day is here! An update through pictures...

I took a lot of them (well D did) but honestly I'm not thrilled with ANY of them so I'm going to save them all and throughout the program I'll do side by side shots of front, side and back, for now, you get a front and a side. I can NOT show you the back yet. UGH! I just can't! Why is my ass square?! Needless to say, I won't be doing fashion week this year...however, I plan on going to every show I possibly can next year! (Well the ones I get invited to-and possibly the ones I don't ha!)

Anyway, remember, the first before picture is not a picture I actually meant to be a before pic, as I didn't start it in time, so it is just a photo of me taken by a friend. Someone tell me how in the hell I had the nerve to wear that?! =)

Before (Best side angle I could find. See the gross ass fat hanging out of my back even from the SIDE!)

After - Not great but improving!

Front - After

 Now, I can admit, it's not that HUGE of a difference. I wasn't expecting one. No one should let four weeks get them discouraged. I am losing fat and gaining muscle AND energy and endurance! The bottom line is, if you can make it past one month, imagine what you could do in 2 or 3 or 6?!

I wanted to give everyone a heads up on what I'm eating so I listed a days meal plan below. Remember, I eat things that I want. I am just healthier about my choices, I'm not going to have a 500 calorie piece of pizza (When you know you can't just eat one slice). It's loaded with fat and grease and ugh. Just the thought....

Breakfast: 2 eggs and 1/2 cup of Special K w/ 1% milk and 1 pack of sweet n low

Snack: 1 pickle (sorry I had a craving)

Lunch: 1 Lean Cuisine Pepperoni Pizza (So yummy and easy and quick!!! Only about 330 calories!)

Dinner: 3/4 cup of shredded chicken 1/4 of a red potato, onions and carrots (all made in the crockpot)
Dessert: (I only eat this once a week) but I get the Smart Ones Desserts, my fav is the Reeses peanut butter cup low fat ice cream!

Like I said, I don't count calories but this is all definitely under 1400 calories and yummmmmmy. I am full and I eat at decent times. You shouldn't be eating dinner past 8 if you're in bed at 10. Remember to try to eat dinner 3-4 hours before you go to bed!

I really try to limit (and have) my dessert to once a week. If I have dessert it has to be something low in fat and I bust my ass the next day to burn it off.

Eating protein in the morning for breakfast will help you stay full throughout the day.

I have OFFICIALLY made it through 4 weeks of bootcamp! I have 3 days next week (it's our off week). Then a new session starts Sept. 20th! My birthday is Monday so I still haven't decided if I'm going to do anything that day or not.

Gotta get some work done so...I'm outtie!

LOVE YOU ALL!!! Thanks for reading and following along on my journey. Don't forget to tune into the VMA's on MTV Sunday! It's gonna be a banger!
