Remember when I said most of the 7 pounds I had “gained” was food and bloat? Today I am 133.8.

Yup. Just restricting my diet, sweating a lot at the gym, and healthy BMs (sorry, not sorry) shed 5 pounds. 

Here is what I did today!

Diet: 912 cal, 84 g Protein, 97 g Carbs, 60 g Sugar, 25 g Fat

Breakfast- 255 cal

  • Quaker Banana Honey Nut Flats 180
    • These are awesome little breakfast bars. You get three flats in a package and provides a morning carb fix without going overboard. 
  • Strawberry Almond Milk 75

Lunch- 175 cal

  • 1/2 scoop of Vanilla Whey Protein 80
  • Dannon Vanilla Greek Yogurt 80
  • 1.5 ounces of Strawberry 15
The powder does have a slightly funny taste, but you will get used to it!

Dinner- 360 cal

  • 12 ounces of zucchini 58
  • 3 ounces of onion 34
  • 1/2 tbs of canola oil 60
  • 5 ounces of mushroom 31
  • BBQ Pulled Chicken 177
    • I put chicken breast in the crockpot with lemon juice, garlic, tomato, and BBQ sauce for 6 hours.

Snacks- 123

  • 3 ounces of grilled chicken 93
    • There was some BBQ sauce that I did not track. Be very aware that condiments can add many calories, so use sparingly
  • 3 ounces of strawberries 30

Workout- 300 calories burned… but don’t let a workout influence your diet!


  • 3 sets of 10 Shoulder Press
  • 2 sets of 12 Bicep Curl
  • 2 sets of 12 Tricep Extension
  • 2 sets of 5 Pull Ups
  • 2 sets of 10 Dips
  • 3 sets of 10 Seated Row
  • 3 sets of 10 Leg Extension
  • 3 sets of 10 Hamstring Curl
  • 3 sets of 10 Squats wth a kettle bell

I wanted to hit all of my major muscle groups because we took three days off while in Mexico. They did have a small gym there— but we stopped going after the second day!


I ran on the treadmill in varying intervals to maximize fat burn. Below is my interval program.

  • 3 minutes
    • 10% incline
    • 4.5 mph
  • 2 minutes
    • 5% incline
    • 6 mph
  • 1 minute
    • 2.5% incline
    • 9-12 mph depending on how well you sprint/ how hard you want to work
  • Repeat 2-3 times

Because I did not eat very much today, staying busy was the key to success. I spent my morning running errands and completing yard work. The last thing you want to do is sit around thinking about how hungry you are. When I started to feel hunger getting the best of me, I sipped on black coffee. The caffeine curbs your appetite and the warm liquid can make you feel full. Additionally, it will help move food through your digestive track.

    That shows that you were FOS😱 Impressive how fast you are back in the groove. I think you should take Preston to the track and race him in some 200m sprints for a cardio someday! Let him see your track star side.
