The Final Countdown: Day 2

Almost there 🙂 My meal plan is the same as every other no carb day and I have followed it to the gram! As far as workouts go I only got in two today… But I gave them everything I had. I rode my bike (rocking the 10lb weighted vest) to Stokes Fitness and worked … Continue reading

The Final Countdown: Day 3

A Solid 8 Days

So I’m not entirely sure why… And I am terribly disappointed in myself… Buit that didn’t stop it from happening. This weekend I uncontrollably binged.  Even though it was running through my mind with every bite of graham cracker I took that this could ruin all of the hardwork I’ve put in these last few … Continue reading
