I think I'm going to take action from my brother's workout and maybe adopt his Paleo Diet and Crossfit work outs because he looks absolutely amazing. He doesn't always follow it to the T, but pretty much it's eating anything that cavemen would eat, like meats, fruits, and certain veggies (usually not legumes, though you can adapt the diet to your preferences.) It's still about 25-30% carb, but definitely no corn, wheat, breads, pastas). Anything that can be found in nature and generally that can be eaten without having to be cooked (which is why beans are usually a no). *EDIT* i was mainly talking about the vegetables in this case, not meat* I'm going to adapt to keep dairy in the diet, but mainly just milk and yogurt and only occassionally cheese, like feta or something for my salads. Lots of nuts. I'm gonna see how it works out for me.
Working out with my trainer lately has been good because she's been doing some intense circuits with me and I've really been beasting them. It's going well and I'm gonna keep trying to do really well because I'm jealous of how good my brother looks. He's been going to Crossfit and it didn't start showing till the 3rd or 4th week, but god, the change is amazing. I've been invited along to 2 events where I met his Crossfit friends and I feel left out and I'm definitely the fat one in the group, so I need to step it up. Besides, I just cancelled my internet and cable cause I can't afford it anymore, so I don't really have an excuse to not go to the gym anymore. I mean, what else am I going to do at home?
time to get serious.
