Operation: Motivation-chella

There's all this buzz in the music world right now about #Coachella. I couldn't be more excited about it, myself.

This will be the first time I've attended a festival as a single lady, so it should be interesting and the best time ever with my girlfriends. I leave tomorrow morning for the weekend, and have been seriously preparing for it for the last month and a half, both mentally and OF COURSE physically.

I asked my co-worker who trains clients privately to give me a regimen and to kick my butt in gear and to get my #CoachellaBodyReady! Not only has he gotten my butt back into gear and the swing of my old routine, he's been motivating me and training me for free! He must know me well, as he's only charging me if I MISS a scheduled workout! NOT a bad deal, if I do say so myself.

For the last six weeks I've been honing in on my diet and for the last four, my coworker has given me a strict weightlifting plan. I'll be posting that next week, so stay tuned, Piggie Posse! Here are my results from the last 6 weeks...

45 days, 3 phases and one goal, my diet has consisted of hard-boiled eggs, egg whites, turkey, chicken breast, ANYthing spicy, and tons of avocado (HELL yes!) while I've kept to mostly cruciferous vegetables as my carbs. For all three phases, I TRIED to cut as much alcohol as possible, but that truly only worked for one week at a time. I'm a HUGE lover of wine, so that was the hardest part.

As shown in my progress chart above, it's worked! I not only feel fantastic, I've lost a total of 5 lbs, and 9.5 inches all over my body in various places. The winner? My hips - AKA my jeans fit better!!

If you want to know details about how I did it in the gym - check out my next post. But, since I still have to pack up and get ready for the weekend, I'll have to give that to you next week when I get back! 

Until then!
