After quarantine I started to step my workout game up a bit. I was working out pretty good when it all started but of course when we all got incarcerated in our homes I turned to more booze and less work out. LOL. Your food and workout will really go by your goals; mine are to tone and lean. I absolutely love CYCLEBAR. I love HIIT as well. I used to do hot yoga which I also loved but now replaced that with core bootcamp twice a week.
Mondays: 45 min CYCLEBAR burns around 350 calories or so per class & includes 5 min of arm workout
Tuesdays & Thursdays: 30 min of core bootcamp with HIIT and cardio i.e. boxing, body weights and core strengthening.
Wednesdays: 30 min intense CYCLEBAR burns around 280 calories
Fridays: moderate cardio, walking 2x, about 4-5miles within the day
Saturdays: Cardio- run, bike, row
Sunday: R + R
For me this work out has not made me lose weight. Infact I am 145 lbs which is the most I have ever weighed. I have toned a LOT & maintained a size 4 waist. The cellulite on the back of my legs have disappeared and I am definitely stronger than ever and FINALLY have a booty!! My weakness is my stomach. I know for a fact I will never ever have a flat stomach and I have accepted that. I did get coolsculpting on my lower abdomen which helped but I still have a pooch and there is still some weight I need to drop there but I like to drink wine and margaritas and eat Mexican and those are things I am not willing to give up so° I try to be good Sunday-Thursday.
MID WEEK DIET
I do intermittent fasting. I only eat from 11am-7pm. I drink black coffee, pre and probiotics in the morning and apple cider vinegar tea. For lunch I sometimes will each breakfast, eggs with sweet potatoes, bacon etc. I also love salads, chicken salad or a simple quesadilla with a low carb wrap and mexcian cheese. For dinner I eat a high protein meat or fish with a vegetable and carb. I love sweets and I always need something after so I will have a piece of dark chocolate and homemade popcorn for my snack. Home made as in i measure the oil and butter with kernels in a Whirly Pop on the stove. I will also do protein and almond milk after my workouts, I use 310 Nutrition it is low in sugar and keto friendly.

I do cheat though, like I said I let myself live. Cutting out carbs, alcohol and sugar is not realistic or something I WANT to do. If I do find myself over indulging I pull back for a bit and cut it out for a week or two. You have to find a lifestyle that works for you and keeps you feeling healthy and happy!
