Day 64 of Body Beast/Bulking

photo.phpDay 64 of body Beast! I finally start the Beast phase or in other words cutting stage. It went by really fast! Thank goodness the bulking part is done! I didn’t follow a strict diet, but just did the calories. It was super hard at the beginning when I was going for the lean bulk. I’m excited to start doing more cardio again. I limited it to about 2 times a week which included teaching Insanity class and going to the Combative’s gym and doing some circuit training 1 time week. I also do a fit club, but I usually don’t push my self there. I’m suppose to limit cardio to one time a week….1502507_10203879218650511_6451551172737440266_n

These are my measurements from today and when I started. I’m ok with some of the measurements. I’m not liking the waist numbers. I can feel I gained weight and it makes me feel a bit miserable. I don’t know how people can bulk for longer then 2 months!  I feel blah and tired all the time. Even in my Insanity class, I do more modifications then usual. I think what keep me going is the motivation from my fitness groups and my hubby getting up in the morning.

Banana Protein Pancakes #1

IMG_2127Banana Protein Pancakes #1.  I’ve tried so many different versions of these and this one turned out the best!

Mix together:

  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp egg whites
  • 1/2 scoop Shakeology – chocolate
  • 2 bananas

Topping:

1/2 container Chobani Greek yogurt and 1 tbsp walnuts.

IMG_2122Then make them like pancakes in a frying pan. I used some EVOO spray to prevent from sticking. Make sure to cook long enough so it won’t fall apart. IMG_2124At the end I took half a container of apple Chobani Greek yogurt and walnuts. No need for syrup!

Day 27 Body Beast

This is the program I'm currently doing.

This is the program I’m currently doing.

I’m already on day 27! time is going fast. So fast that I started with the Lean workout schedule and decided to switch to the Huge Beast schedule. If I would of stuck with the lean beast, I would be in the Beast/shredding stage. I’m not ready. I want more muscle mass and not to mentionI like eating 2400 calories a day!

I did gain 6 pounds since I’ve started. It mostly went to my waist which I’m ok with for now. It should go away next month in the leaning out phase….It better! #TrustTheProcess….. My biceps and calves increased which is good. And at least my chest stayed the same….I don’t need them shrinking anymore! My diet isn’t so great, but it could be worse. It’s very hard for me to eat 2400 clean calories a day! I eat all day so I’ve been splurging here and there. Eating crap!! Today I start my 7 Day Shakeology challenge so hopefully it gets me back on track!

For those unfamiliar with the Body Beast program. It starts off by a Build and Bulk phase. During this phase, you are lifting heavy weights and eating more then normal. It is ok to gain weight! Then in the third phase, you will drop the calories/macros and lean out, leaving you with lean muscle!

Weeks 1 and 2 of Body Beast: Build Phase….aka Bulking

This is the program I'm currently doing.

This is the program I’m currently doing.

I’m currently doing Round 2 of Body Beast! It looks a bit intimidating, but it’s not! Don’t be afraid to lift weights! Weights=results!

My first round, I was scared of getting big or bulky. So I lifted heavy, but didn’t do the meal plan requirements. I actually lost weight and it broke my plateau! Here are my results from my first round.

Round 1 Body Beast Results

Round 1 Body Beast Results

Now that I am learning more about fitness, I am trying the recommended calories. This means I am eating 2400 calories a day! I just finished week 2 and I put on a couple pounds. Eating this much is hard! I tried doing a lean bulk at first, but I was too full and couldn’t get my calories up! Now I’m eating a little more junk here and there without feeling guilty. I do try to stay within the recommended macros for the program.

For supplements, I use Beachbody’s Hardcore protein shake since there’s no flavor, it goes great with my Shakeology. So yes, I also use Shakeology and sometimes Fuel Shot. Pre- workout, I rotate between E&E and C4.

Why am I doing this? 1. I want to lean out and get more muscle definition. 2.ABS 3. Booty 4. I want to see if bulking and leaning really work for me!  No, I’m not competing or doing any type of competition. I just like to try different things so when people ask, I can say yes it worked for me or no it didn’t. I can speak from my experience, but of course, everyone’s different.

Ok, here’s the pics…Ignore my iPhone camera quality! I need to find a different place to take them. But here are my pics from when I started and now today- beginning of week 2. (Week 1 on left and week 2 on right). Oh and ignore my HaPpY facial expressions;)
