"I'm so excited and I just can't hide it"...... Ok so that lyric may date me more than I like but, It's true - I feel amazing - fit - energetic - young - alive - healthy and BONUS, people have noticed :)
While everyday isn't perfect and "fun filled" - I have found my stride as a mom, wife, coach, and athlete.....without spending all my time food prepping or in the gym!
With a 17 month and 4 1/2 year old, I realize life gets in the way and there isn't a routine or perfect day that really comes to fruition but I know that I have some tools to help anyone willing to COMMIT - be COACHABLE - stay CONSISTENT
What do I do? .....a little something I call the Triple Threat Lifestyle(nutrition/fitness/supplements)
I workout 3x a week with focus and intention - anything more than that is a bonus. I lift weights because I want to be toned (not big) - I mix it up and get outside (aka Barton Spring!!) as much as life allows.
I eat clean 95% of the time
I don't eat gluten
I eat very very little dairy (only if it's in a salad or sprinkled on something)
I do eat corn chips (hello, I live in TX)
I eat out about 1x a week
I don't do "cheat meals" but do "treats" every now and then (not every time they are in front of me!!)
I don't eat massive amounts of veggies (laziness mainly) but do take a green drink supplement
I use to follow strict Zone - which was awesome for me! Helped me with portion control and regulate my insulin - cut down on cravings and helped break the "binge" cycle.
I transitioned into no gluten - (almost) no dairy over the past 7 years. I still know my Zone blocks but don't weigh and measure. Over the years, I've found that my body works best on very little carbs, moderate protein, and lots and lots of fat.
Everyone is different, the Zone helped me "play" with macronutrient combo's to determine what I need. I typically eat 12-16 blocks of protein (7g per block), 6-10 blocks of carbs (9g per block), and 25-35 blocks of fat (1.5g per block). If this is too much detail....don't worry the Zone can be scaled to fit what ready for.
I take supplements regularly! We have a lot of FIT people in our community - but when I look at those who are consistent with supplements ie: fish oil, branch chain amino acids, post workout shakes - you can hands down see a difference in his/her overall "glow", athletic performance, and body composition. They are the difference maker.
I won't go a day without my AdvoCare Max Nutrition System (wellness packet), Spark and Catalyst because I know they fill n the gaps of things I am not getting - they are world class quality and I see results!
My passion is to bring wellness - belief - and life improvement through nutrition and fitness to as many people as possible.
If you're ready - I know I can help you with any piece of the Triple Threat Lifestyle.
