Food's Prepped & New Workouts Ready!

6 weeks people! I'm officially 6 weeks away from my shoot and I'm super excited! I did another food prep yesterday and it seemed waaaay less intense than last week and didn't take as long either. I do have to admit, it was pretty awesome not having to cook all week, and to my surprise, the food I made last Sunday lasted us all week! That was meals 2-4 for me, and food for B too (he eats a little more sporadically). This week, I went with Turkey Zucchini Burgers, Salsa chicken, Turkey fajitas, and baked chicken with veggies. And sadly, I've officially switched from lean ground turkey to extra lean. It's not nearly as tasty, but now that I'm semi starting to count calories and pay closer attention to macros, it makes a big difference. 


Today is also a big day because I'm starting James Wilson's Body Earned program again and will do that until my shoot. I really, really loved it the first time around and I know the style of training will get me to where I want to be before the shoot. 



For those of you that have purchased his program, I'm starting at the 6 week mark and I'll do weeks 6-12, per James' recommendation. Since I have been training hard for the past few months James wants me to pay close attention to my body and take a break if I need it so that I don't over train or burn out again. I have taken week breaks in the past few months and I'll definitely be doing that again after my shoot. The last thing in the word I want is that burn out feeling again. It sucked. 

Have a super Monday and I'll have a vlog tomorrow answering the slew of questions I have :)

  1. Do you have any experience with his at home program? I have been training consistently for a few years now but with my work and grad school schedule I need to workout at home. Is it still challenging or is it for beginners??? Good luck girlie! Thanks for all your pointers!!!

    1. So then you would want to put yourself in a 300-500 calorie deficient to lose fat-- don't forget to incorporate your burn during a workout!

  4. SUPER excited and proud of you Brittany!! Man, all the hard work it more then evident. You are going to rock that photo shoot!! Seriously, Oxygen will have you as there cover model some day. You are such a HUGE inspiration.

    Unfortunately for me due to my stubborn self, I ignored a lower back issue that finally did me in 2 weeks ago :0(. As per a back doctor specialist I have too take it easy until my back is totally better. First thing he said...NO leg presses, NO squats, NO heavy lifting that irritates the back. Sheesh I seriously felt like crying. So, after a week of completely laying off I am back taking it slow and steady with circuit training and cardio. Blah. Hopefully my back heals quick and I can get back to serous business. I am already going crazy!! I LOVE heavy lifting and miss it. Oh man I am a weights junkie what can I say! Oh well, slow and steady goes the journey and set backs will happen but I WILL NOT GIVE UP!

    Keep rocking it Brittany and have a good week. Looking forward to the vlog manana!
