UPF Week 1

Ultimate Portion Fix is in full swing! It feels great to be working out again. Today is day 4, so far I’ve been able to get the workout in each day, even though sometimes I have to stop a couple times to feed or soothe my baby girl. I also had to significantly modify yesterdays workout (21 Day Fix Pilates Extreme Real Time). Any moves targeting legs I completed as is, but any targeting core I just substituted in one of the Diastasis Recti exercises, to be safe.

The eating plan has been going fairly well. On Day 1 my Brother-in-law (professional chef) made homemade fried chicken, so I broke my meal plan on the first day, but it was worth it! Day 2 I was perfect to make up for it 🙂 In general it is a lot of food – and I’ve found some great new recipes even in the first week. Fixate has a bunch of good options for vegetables/salads. Two favorites this week (so far) are the Fixate antipasto salad and the roasted cabbage with Cotija cheese.

I was able to complete the bulk of the food prep Saturday/Sunday before the week started which is essential. I’ve been fitting in the other steps here and there where I can. Its been a super rainy week here, which gets a little depressing when you can’t get out of the house with the baby, so I’m glad I’ve had the Beachbody workouts to get me moving a bit and get those endorphins going!

It’s not always easy to fit all that prep in, or get anything done in a day it seems! I’ve taken to ‘baby wearing’ lately. Its one guaranteed way to calm my little one down, as she loves to be close to me. There’s not too much I can get down while wearing her, but prep is ok (I’m just slow and can’t bend over!)

#Momlife. Instant Pot and Rice Cooker going while baby sleeps, for the win!

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.
