I'm back! I'm hardly awake right now-- Monday is hard enough, but Monday after a week vacation is extra rough! I promised a pre-vacation picture, so here I am after my last workout before heading out.
I just (tried) to get all my cardio sessions in and replaced starchy carbs with yams and veggies. I didn't quite get those upper abs back, but I felt great, and I'm definitely excited to have my shakes, oats, and Ezekiel bread again! I'm also going to stop counting calories and just follow portion size and use my best judgement. I tend to go through phases of being super strict with counting calories, and I have been this way since starting James' program 11 weeks ago, so I think it's time to relax a little and trust that I know what 1500 calories looks like. I'm also almost done with round one of the Body Earned program, and once I finish that up I'm going to start on weeks 13-26! I can't wait!
That's my plan moving forward, I'll be sure to let you know if anything changes :) Here are a few vacay pics... I want to go back!
