Changing my habits surely but slowly!

Just a few short weeks ago, I was stuck in some habits that didn’t serve me. I was struggling to get my workouts in even though I was loving my workout program (country dancing cardio is so fun!) but would be tired after work.

After completing the reset (LIFE CHANGING!) I have been noticing habits of eating when stressed or bored. I am working on myself with personal development to change those habits. I am meal prepping like a boss (aka making sure I have clean, healthy choices easily available at all times), packing my lunches in my mini cooler lunch kit (ya ya it’s like a suitcase I hear ya but it helps my goals), and my NUMBER ONE change is WORKING OUT IN THE MORNING!

One of my pd books (personal development) is the Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod.

This has been something I have struggled with in mornings. I am working on applying that discipline in my day with morning workouts!

Getting Started for Core De Force!

I have spent a large amount of time today getting organized for my week ahead. I have planned out my nutrition and workouts! Tomorrow I will grocery shop and prep. Here is the meal plan I have made for myself.

There are four plans that you could fall into: Plan A, B, C or D. First, you calculate your calorie target.

  1.  Take your current weight, multiply that by 11, and that is your calorie starting point.
  2. Take your calorie starting point, add 400 calories, and that is what you will burn with each workout & that gives you your maintenance calories.
  3. Take your maintenance calories, subtract 750 calories to give you a deficit, and that is your calorie target.
  4. Then figure out which category you fit into based on that number!

Once you know your plan for calories you can check out how many servings of each container you get to eat per day.  Core de Force also uses the portion container system or it gives you the measurements for each one as well.

I am in the Plan C category. I get to eat daily:

5 proteins, 4 carbs, 5 veggies, 3 fruit, 1 healthy fat, 1 seed/dressing, 5 teaspoons (oils & nut butters)


Looks like a lot of delicious food and I am looking forward to feeling strong as I explore this program. As someone who has loved UFC and MMA for years (yes we have been to over 12 live events including UFC 200 Fight Week in July 2016).
