Operation Get Lean // Week 2 Recap

Two weeks down and I'm starting to notice some results.  I have been very committed to my meal plan and the workouts, and I want all the results immediately, but I'm taking it one day at a time. Having a photo to remind me where I started and track my progress really helps me stay motivated.  Here's a pic I shared on Instagram.  The pictures were taken 1 week apart, both on Friday morning (after week 1 and after week 2).


I start my workouts with a 5 minute treadmill warmup (speed at 4.0), then go directly to planks - trying to do 3 for at least 1 minute, 30 seconds with a two minute rest in between.  Then I do my weight workout for about 40 minutes or so and then 20 minutes of cardio.  The whole thing takes about 1 hour  and 20 minutes.  I keep my earphones in and don't chat. 

Monday - Back, 3 planks, 20 minutes of cardio (sprints 30 seconds on and off at a 7.0 mph)

Tuesday - Biceps & Triceps, 25 minutes of cardio (18 incline at 2.5 mph - don't hold on)

Wednesday - Shoulders (no cardio)

Thursday - off

Friday - Legs, 3 planks, 20 minutes of cardio (sprints 30 seconds on and off at a 7.0 mph)

Saturday - Back, 2 planks, 20 minutes of cardio (sprints 30 seconds on and off at a 7.0 - 7.5 mph)

Sunday - off


I'm still on THIS MEAL PLAN, but this week instead of turkey chili, I made Tex Mex Casserole with Egg Noodles.  I also made chocolate protein brownies and had a few.

*This week I'm going to add 2 sausage links to my breakfast to get more protein in at breakfast.  I still need to figure out which ones.

Saturday night, I went out to dinner and had 1 glass of red wine, a cup of lobster bisque, sea bass with jumbo lump crab and lemon butter sauce (ate about half).  Later, I had another glass of wine and a cocktail. But, I think the drinks (and maybe the heavy food) messed with my stomach because I didn't sleep well and felt kinda icky on Sunday.  For lunch on Sunday I indulged in fatty Mexican dish and chip and queso, but I really enjoyed it! :)  

Back on the wagon!  Hope you have an awesome week!

  6. looking good Megan. Isn't it funny how our bodies react so quickly to cheat days?? I feel the same way after a couple of drinks and foods that I don't normally have. It's amazing how you can feel the difference.
