It's time for my progress update post!!! I'm absolutely loving T25 Gamma Phase. Gamma is the 3rd phase of T25. It incorporates strength training, core and cardio all into one workout. The fact that it continues to be 25 minutes, 5 days a week just excites me to no end! Honestly, I can't tell you how wonderful it is to only have to do 25 minutes of hard work each day and know that I am doing something amazing for my body. I also get asked all the time, do you really think 25 minutes is enough to get results. I can honestly say YES the success stories from my challengers have not stopped rolling in!! Plus my husband has lost a significant amount of weight with T25, Shakeology and Clean Eating.
Honestly I am not going to lie this past month has been hard. The bathing suits are put away, the winter clothes are coming out, it's getting darker earlier in the day and it's darker in the mornings when I wake up. It would be so easy to just hit the snooze button and sleep in. But I know that if I don't get up and do my workout now, it's most likely not going to happen. Instead I repeat to myself over and over. "I will do today what others are not willing to do so that I can live the life I want when they are wishing they would of started sooner!!!!!" That's enough for me!
I am on the last week of the Gamma Phase. I am doing Option 1 which is Pure Gamma.
So here is the schedule:
|Having fun taking pictures---> Total DORK I KNOW!|
Monday: Extreme Circuit, 25 minutes of a rotating circuit with weights. I use 5, 8 and 10 lbs weights.
Tuesday: Rip't Up: An entire 25 minutes of upper body strength training. Can you say JELLO arms.
Wednesday: Speed 3.0, 25 minutes of cardio!!! Go big or go home, it's only 25 minutes!!!
Thursday: The Pyramid, you increase in the number or reps with each exercise. So basically a bazillion reps with each move.
Friday: Extreme Circuit
Sunday: Stretch optional.
I also got some new shoes because I was noticing that my knees and the bottoms of my feet were aching. I have great cushion on the floor with the golds gym mats so it had to be the shoes. I scoped out these cross trainers and not only are the super cute, but I no longer have leg and feet pain!!!
The meal plan is super important to your success as well!! Taking time to plan out your meals is what determines the quality of your results. I have found that I can exercise until I'm blue in the face but if my nutrition doesn't match then I don't get the results.
So here is my meal plan for you to reference.
I tend to keep it relatively the same each day and vary my dinners because it's just easier in my mind than planning a ton of variety. Plus if you are on a budget then repeating meals, cooking bulk are going to be smarter options!
The Avocado chicken salad is one of my husband and my favorite lunches. It's easy to make and it resembles chicken salad.
All of the dinner recipes can be found on my blog section called Eat Clean Recipes.
|This body is a result of 80% clean eating, Shakeology and T25!!!!|
Stay tuned for next week!! Onto Phase 2 Gamma called Pure Strength Hybrid until P90X3 comes out!!!
