Des Moines Parent FXB Challenge: Week Four

DISCLOSURE: THIS BLOG SERIES IS SPONSORED BY FARRELL’S EXTREME BODYSHAPING, BUT ALL THOUGHTS AND OPINIONS ARE MY OWN. THIS POST MAY ALSO CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS.

Week four is done and it was a bit of a hard one for me. I am excited to kick off week five because there is testing this weekend!

Highlights for this week: 

  • I missed one workout this week.
  • Nutrition was a bit of a struggle this week.
  • Someone I do not regularly see noticed some changes!

NUTRITION

I meal-prepped like usual, but nutrition this week was a bit of a struggle. It was when the weekend hit. I had planned to take my cheat day on Sunday because of the Super Bowl, but I ended up also having several “cheat” snacks on Saturday too. 🙁 That’s okay! It’s Monday and I am ready to get back on track.

This past week I prepped an entire chicken in the crock pot, shredded up the meat and included it on my salads for the week. I discovered this yummy salad dressing, pictured below. It’s an all natural dressing, no secret ingredients and is delicious! I also roasted bell peppers, red onion and broccoli to include with my lunches and dinners. Overall, my eating was pretty on point until the weekend hit.

FITNESS

First off, I want to congratulate all the Farrell’s Extreme Bodyshaping for winning Cityview Best 2017 for Best Local Place to Kickbox! This just shows how GREAT Farrell’s is 🙂

I missed one workout day in week four. I will be totally honest, there was so excuse besides me just not wanting to go, because I was tired. I will tell you though, the entire rest of my day was completely off and did not have the great boost of energy I usually have. I quickly regretted not going.

Overall, week four was a bit of a challenge for me. I am looking forward to starting fresh this week and 5-week testing on Saturday. I am excited to see if I have made any changes!
