I wanted to talk a little about where I'm at, and check in on all my #operationredbikini girls. We're almost there, ladies! How is it going? I've been keeping up with you all on Instagram, so even though I haven't been commenting much here, I'm still watching you! Don't F up! Okay kidding...But seriously, I haven't left the game!
I've talked here before
I contacted Ashley Leahy, who created a custom meal plan for me, based on what macros my body would most optimally lose fat/weight with. I started following my meal plan officially last Monday. Despite a confusing (to the girl who sucks at Math and can barely use a calculator) high carb day, I've lost 3.2 pounds. That's great, but it has taught me something so important. I am finally looking at food as fuel, not pleasure.
I also haven't "cheated" since I started because I want to keep seeing these results, I don't want to let Ashley down (or, of course, myself) and because it just isn't worth it. All this hard work would be for what if I ate a cookie and a cheeseburger? Nothin'.
I want to stress...REALLY stress..that this is not a diet. This is not a quick fix. This is not "the new thing that my friend said really works so I'm gonna try it for a few days because I'm going on summer vacation". I finally get that this is a lifestyle. One day I'll get brave and create tons of recipes and figure ALL the macros, not just calories. Just not today. I don't have time right now, which is another reason this works so well. No thinking involved. I feel like Ashley is my cheerleader and her support is priceless to me. Cheeseball.
Plus, she's a Louisiana girl so what's not to love? Contact Ashley HERE and tell her Kassie sent you!
I've also still been working out with my trainer and I'm feeling so much stronger! Some of the best money I've ever spent. I still stand by the fact that Burpees are the Devil's exercise, though. And they make me feel like an orka or a manatee flapping around on hot sand. It better make me look like a mother effin' mermaid though. A hot one!
