That shake 👆🏽 is the best way to start a morning! Chocolate + coconut, yum!
Round 1 – Day 08/21
Shift Shop – Speed:35
Ugh…I never posted this before I went to bed last night. I was soooooo sleepy from all the walking the day before and then hitting Speed:35 in the morning. It was definitely a Monday, and I spent all day playing catch up after a super busy weekend. But I still got my workout done in the morning before getting out of the apartment for the afternoon.
So, Speed:35…whoa 10 minutes longer than last week now. And you wouldn’t think 10 minutes was much right?
Speed:35 is no joke!!!
When the Shop Rule is “Don’t let the move finish you, you finish the move”, you know it’s gonna be tough!!! All I can say is that yesterday morning was rough after walking all day on Sunday 😅💦 This program ramps up every week. You do the same workouts for a week and then it increases in duration, intensity and speed so it’s constantly challenging you, making you stronger and FASTER.
Fast forward to today and my legs are jello 😳 But today is a strength day with Shift Shop and I’m also heading out for an afternoon training run. I’ll be working different muscle groups today than I have been the last couple, and I’m ready for it!
I may need a nap when I’m done 😴 😅
This nutrition plan is EVERYTHING! I love PCF + The Shift Shop Nutrition Plan
It’s not easy to do this as a vegetarian or vegan but only because of how the Shift Shop nutrition plan limits what carbs you can eat. You still eat carbs, just very specific ones. But the best thing about Portion Fix is that you can tweak it for whatever nutritional needs you have. The Shift Shop nutrition plan is geared specifically for the best results from the workout plan. You are building lean muscle and The SHIFT has us changing up our meal plan this week reducing the more starchy carbs and increasing our greens and proteins.
Some starches can be metabolized as quickly and even quicker than sugar, which means that they can rapidly increase your blood sugar levels after eating. Reducing your starch and sugar intake is a good way to control your weight and blood sugar levels and improve your cardiovascular risk profile. This also allows the transition from using glucose as our primary cellular fuel to using fat instead. And that should be a gigantic nutritional goal for those who are over weight or obese. Using your own fat to fuel your body will help you melt away the pounds.
Progress By The Numbers
Oh, and I promised you an update on my progress! I’m really pleased with my progress. Especially when throwing in a weeks vacation where I had limited control over food choices. Even forgoing workouts and opting for walking all day on some days. I owe a lot of it to PCF! I’ve done some tweaking with my nutrition plan and you know what? That’s ok. Every person is different and some times you have to change things up. That’s the beauty of these programs and our training, we have the skillz 😜
It feels good to be in a place where everything fits. Where I’m getting healthier without some trendy fad. Some times people think losing weight and getting healthy is complicated and hard. But really it’s not, not when you have the right tools to make permanent change.
I’m always here if you need the help getting started. I’m just an email away 💙
