Messed up on my meal plan + Gym Update

So on my last blog post about my fitness update, I told you guys that I can eat rice again but alternating veggie only days and rice days…

Well, I’ve been doing that for the last few weeks but turns out I was only supposed to do that for a week—oops!

It was just funny because when I told my boyfriend (aka my personal trainer) about it, he said “I thought I was clear on this” but I misinterpreted what he said.

All good though! If you guys mess up like I did, just know what it’s okay because it’s all part of the process!

Gym Update

I should also note that I haven’t been to the gym the last few weeks either. I was so caught up with school stuff that I am always feeling so tired everyday and I just did not have the time to workout while having so much studying to do and having time to rest.

Now that things are kind of getting a little more chill, I am planning to go back this week!

Just a reminder—it’s okay to take time off from the gym to prioritize other things. We all get busy so it’s okay to rest, but be sure to not overwork yourself to the point our mental and physical health gets compromised!

Finally Got to Eat Rice Again!!!

For the past week I stopped eating rice or bread and mainly focused on eating vegetables for my carbs…which was really hard to do if I’m being completely honest. #RICEISLIFE. My food seemed a little sad without rice…or maybe that was me…

I did this to mostly see how my body changes and feels, and I did lose a significant amount of weight, and I’m definitely happy about that!

I honestly found myself feeling hungrier more often. I think its because my body isn’t really used to not consuming rice or bread.

However, today I finally got to eat rice again!! You bet I was so happy. My food all of a sudden didn’t seem so sad!

For this week, I will be alternating between days when I can eat rice and bread, and days when I only eat vegetables for my carbs. Can’t wait to see how my body progresses this week!
