Week 3 is complete and week 4 of Country Heat starts tomorrow! Follow me on my Facebook (fb.com/LLHealthyFit.com) and Instagram (MelissaBrown66) for daily pictures and videos. I would like to take time right now to reflect on week 3 as well as share my workout and nutrition plan for week 4 with you.
I felt much better in week 3 than week 2. Cold is finally leaving my body and my energy levels are back to normal! This mommy doesn’t miss out on her “ME” time even when sick. My kids joined me more than usual this week and that is OK. I improvised some of the moves in the workouts so that I could have my little man on my hip. Squats are always one of my go to moves for substituting one move for another. I always make sure that my baby is safe (head supported) in my arms when I am doing the workout with him. I do have two baby carriers that I use as an option when he wants to be close to me. There is a ton of dancing and giggles even if the workout wasn’t 100% on point. I’m making progress when my feet are moving! Check out the video below from the workout Wild Goose Chase.
My workout schedule for week 4* looks something like this:
Calorie range 1,200 to 1,499 – Plan A per the Country Heat calculation in the nutrition guide that comes with the program. I love the meal plan because it uses the color coded portion control container system developed by Autumn Calabrese. Shakeology comes in 7 different flavors. I alternate usually between two different flavors for my meal plan. Be sure to search my site for recipes to include in your meal plan. Many of my dinner options are new this week and I will be updating my website with the recipes as I make the meal.
Friday (dinner) and Saturday (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner) have not been included on the meal plan for week 4 as we have plans to be with my husband’s family. I accounted for my AM/PM snack ensuring that I have my Shakeology each day. Tips for getting through Friday/Saturday will be shared next week on my website as well as real time in my accountability group. Check out the recipe for Southern Spiced French Toast w/ Bananas & Walnuts; I substituted walnuts for pecans!
