DAY 19, 20, 21- HOLIDAY BODY CHALLENGE

Happy Christmas Eve Everyone!! I hope your day is off to an amazing start and that you are all ready for the big day tomorrow!!! I am not going to be posting the body challenge for the next couple of days because I will be spending time with my family and taking some time off. I am getting my house ready now for a big party and I am super excited. I hope that throughout this challenge you have learned that you can still eat good throughout the holidays without packing on 10 extra lbs!! The purpose is to have the intention to live healthy year around no matter what the circumstances. This doesn't mean you have to deprive yourself, or on the contrary over indulge like crazy. Just maintain eating every 3 hours and stick to the types of foods that I have been posting in my challenge. The more often you eat (the correct foods and portion sizes), the faster your metabolism becomes and your body turns into a natural burning furnace of fat!!!:) Cheers to you and your loved ones! I hope that you have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS- and I will be in touch soon.

Warmest Wishes and Lots of Love!

DAY 14- HOLIDAY BODY CHALLENGE

Hi there! I hope your week is off to a great start and you are finding yourself ready for Christmas! I am having it at my house this year and I am thrilled! I seriously need to get some holiday shopping done soon!

Yesterday's Meals-

1 cup coffee BLACK!

Gym-

Post workout- WM's lean protein shake, with 1 cup spinach, 1 rice cake

Snack- salad with tuna

Lunch- grilled salmon salad with a bunch of veggies and balsamic

Snack- none (late lunch)

Dinner- my left over salad

Last meal- 1 piece julian bakery bread with almond butter and sf jelly

I had a good workout yesterday but I was still fighting this virus so it was tough. I hit legs and did a spinning class. I am feeling much better today so tomorrow's workout should be great. Weight is still the same, but with everything going on and trying to put on muscle I am cool with that. I definitely cleaned up my diet yesterday because I have been indulging a lot lately and felt I needed it. I think it's best to always listen to your body and give it what it needs. You will never go wrong once you learn to do this.

Have a wonderful evening!

All my best,

Nicole

DAY 13- HOLIDAY BODY CHALLENGE

Hi there! I hope you had an amazing Monday and your week is off to a great start. I am trying to figure out what I am going to get everyone for Christmas and I promise that next year I am going to start Christmas shopping 6 months before hand!! I think it becomes daunting waiting until this time to try to figure out what to get everyone, and then it can start to rob your joy for the season. So note to self- always buy something early in the year if I think someone will like it for Christmas!:) I was back at the gym today! It was very tough and took everything I had to get out of bed! My workout was tough and I feel my body fighting but I am pumping liquid echinacea, vitamin c, oregano oil, zinc, and all my other regular supplements.

Yesterday I kind of pigged out I have to be honest:

2 cups coffee with cream

Breakfast: 1/2 cup black beans with a corn tortilla and avocado, and a piece of toast with sugar free jelly.

Snack: peanut butter and jelly sandwich

Lunch: Veggie chili with gluten free corn bread and a fresh raw green juice

Snack: WM's lean protein shake and some rice cakes

Dinner: My leftover cornbread and soup.

Before bed: another peanut butter in jelly sandwich!! (i get weird cravings sometimes and just go with it:)

OK- so I hope you are getting the picture that once you get your metabolism going you can eat more and still maintain your weight. The faster you can learn to eat every 2-3 hours the faster your metabolism will kick in and that faster you can start eating more of what you want consistently.

Cheers to your success!!! I believe in you!!:)

I had a late lunch and we were going out to dinner with friends so I had a glass of wine before we went to dinner.

DAY 9- HOLIDAY BODY CHALLENGE

Hi everyone- sorry for the super late post today! My son is in transition to a new preschool and it's been hectic to say the least! I have to be honest- I have been far from perfect with my meals (and cocktails:) and that's why I wanted to do this challenge!! I wanted to show that you can still enjoy yourself during the holidays, without depriving yourself of good food and drinks, and good times with your family and friends! Again, this time of year is about being with the ones you love and celebrating life in my opinion. So don't beat yourself up if you aren't perfect with your meals and eating the cleanest. Just make sure you stay on top of your cardio and keep eating every 3 hours to keep your metabolism going!

Yesterday's Meals:

2 cups coffee with a little SF creamer

No Gym (day off)

Breakfast- Amazing veggie egg white omelette with a side garden salad and 1/4 cup cous cous from one of my most fav restaurants ever- PANINI!!!:)

Snack- My left over omelet and cous cous (I only ate half at breakfast)

Lunch- WM's lean protein shake with PB2 and 1/4 banana

Snack- 2 rice cakes with SF jelly and peanut butter

Happy Hour- 2 glasses pinot noir (By now you know I love me some red wine:)

Dinner- Charbroiled chicken with mediterranean salad- dressing a little EVOO (extra virgin olive oil, and balsamic vinegar)- yummy

Dessert- Took my soon to pink berry and got a small chocolate hazelnut! Sooooo good!!

Last meal - Larabar and small bowl of brown rice cereal with almond milk-
FYI- really try not to drink wine, pink berry, lara bar and cereal all in one night! lol - but it was sooooo good- and hey it's the holidays right??:)

Weight is still the same- I had a ridiculous workout today- probably one of the hardest workouts of my life- but I will update you on that tomorrow. For now, have a wonderful evening!

Lots of love:)

Day 8 of the Holiday body challenge:

Hi everyone! Day 8 of the Holiday body challenge and I am feeling pretty good!! My weight is still hanging steady at about 130lbs. I have been lifting heavy and it's time to increase the cardio. Starting next week I will cut out alcohol and add in some extra cardio and you will see what happens with the weight. It's very tricky when you want to put on muscle and lean out at the same time. It's always good to take a slow approach, add the muscle first and drop the weight slowly so you don't lose that hard earned muscle you worked for!!

Yesterday's Meals-

2 cups coffee with a little S.F. creamer

RPM- spin class and quick but hard leg day.

Post workout shake- WM's lean protein, 1 cup spinach, and 1/2 banana and 1 piece julian bakery toast with a little SF jelly.

Lunch- Large green salad with 4 oz chicken breast, 1/4 cup black beans, 1/4 corn, 1 oz avocado, tomatoes and 2 tbsp balsamic vinaigrette. I also had two spicy lemonade cocktails with my girlfriend- gosh I am going to miss those when I have to cut them out!! They were sweet potatoes vodka, with organic lemons, agave syrup and cayenne. Yummy!

No snack

Dinner- 4 oz grilled chicken breast, 1/4 cup corn, and 1.5 cups steamed broccoli.

Dessert- WM's lean protein chocolate shake with 2 tbsp PB2 and 1 oz cashews

Before Bed- 1 piece julian bakery bread and a little PB2 and sugar free jelly (going to have to cut this soon too!!)


So that's it for yesterday... I am really taking a slow approach as I am building muscle, next week some more significant changes will start happening. I will keep you posted of course.

Until then--- have a fabulous rest of your day!!

Ok- feeling great today!! I have a ton of energy and my weight is coming down which I like, 130lbs.:) My goal weight for the end of the challenge is 122lbs btw:) I had an amazing run on the beach this morning which I always love. I run in the thick part of the sand and it is a killer glute, leg, and cardio workout. Plus, I get to meditate on all of the things I have to be grateful for and all of my dreams that I am working towards. It is important to spend time every day to visualize your goals as if they have already happened, and then go and take the steps to get there:)

Yesterday's meals:

Of course my two cups coffee and cream

Breakfast- WM's Lean protein with spinach and 1/4 banana

Brunch with my dad- egg whites and sautéed spinach, with 1 cup black beans, 1 corn tortilla, 1 oz avocado, and salsa- and an almond milk latte- yummy!!!

Snack- Raw protein bar

Gym- cardio: 20 minutes on the bike and 20 minutes on the revolving stairs, and abs

Post workout- another protein bar!!!

Dinner- My leftover eggs,spinach, and beans from lunch (I love leftovers btw:)

Snacked on- some cashews and a rice cake with sugar free jelly

Before Bed- WM's lean protein chocolate shake and 1 cup almond milk

As you can see- I eat all of the time and I eat a lot- My point in doing all of this is to show that you can eat and LOSE WEIGHT!! It just needs to be the right foods and at the right times!

Happy Sunday- Off to the LAKER game- hopefully they play better tonight!! Going to have sushi in LA at my fav sushi spot ever- Katana!! Can't wait! Check you tomorrow!!

DAY 4- HOLIDAY BODY CHALLENGE

Ok- feeling pretty good today- very sore. Been hitting it hard on the weights, I am really trying to build a lot of muscle this winter:)
Life is always a little extra hectic this time of year so try not to beat yourself up if things don't go exactly as planned. One of the great parts about this time of year
is enjoying life, celebrating and spending quality time with your loved ones.

Today's weight is still the same... It should start dropping next week a little.

Yesterdays meals weren't exactly as planned because my day was non-stop from 4:00am but here it is:

Coffee with creamer

Gym

Post workout- 1 cup egg whites and 1 piece low carb julian bakery toast

Snack- Raw crunch bar (my fav)

Lunch- Green salad with salmon (they used smoked salmon which I hate, so I only ate the greens and I was still hungry!!)

Snack- 1/2 piece chicken breast and two glasses of wine (yes I know the wine def wasn't on the plan!!!!:)

Dinner- Grilled sea bass with lemon and no sauce and some sauted assparagus on the side, and a side green salad.

Last Meal- Of course a WM's lean protein shake with 1 cup almond milk! Yummmmmmy

Oh yayyyy and I snuck a little bit of my husbands honey bunches of oats with some almond milk as a midnight snack. whoops!!

Slept like a baby- I was exhausted and the wine always makes me sleep super deep.


I am back on track now and going to hit it even harder next week and crank up the cardio. Today I haven't went to the gym yet
because I had to take my son to karate early, but I plan on doing some moderate intensity cardio for about 40 minutes some time
today:)

Have a fabulous Saturday!!! Cheers!!!
