I have been feeling SO good recently. I have found a balance where I can enjoy food (guilty pleasures) that aren’t so guilty and still see results in my body composition. What have I done?
Well I went ahead and STOPPED trying to cut weight. I was SO stressed out about cutting weight, that nothing was coming off. So, I decided that I am going to maintain. Why? It was my birthday, a lot of events were coming up where there would be delicious food & I would be surrounded by so many people I love . Am I going off the rails? HECK NO. I am enjoying myself. I know Coach Christian & Allie were both happy to hear I was not going to cut TEN pounds. Instead, the goal is to change my body composition. So I made sure to do an Inbody when I decided not to cut and before my next meet I will do another Inbody and see where I stand. This does not mean I am not working hard. I am TOTALLY still eating healthy & lifting four days a week, I am just making sure I do not make myself miserable.
With maintaining, I have actually seen my body composition change more than cutting. My shorts have a little more room now but most importantly, I had to alter a dress I couldn’t fit in because of my arms & back getting SO JACKED, kidding but not kidding ( I MEAN COME ON WHO DOESNT WANT THAT ISSUE). The decision to maintain weight was inspired with this quote I am going to leave you with.
Love, Coach Beeks
” Those extra 5-10 pounds, that place your body naturally wants to be – that’s your life.
That’s your late night pizza with your man, that Sunday Morning bottomless mimosas brunch, your favorite cupcake in the whole entire world because you want to treat yourself.
Those 5-10 pounds are your favorite memories, your unforgettable trips, your celebrations of life.
Those extra 5-10 pounds are your spontaneity, your freedom, your love.”
