Now don’t get excited! Let me explain what is happening first!
So Amy and Roxy actually started this challenge a good 3 months ago but due to unforeseen circumstance and some lengthy hospital stays for Amy we have stretched our challenge time to give them some uninterrupted time to get in shape.
What this has meant is that up to a few weeks ago it had been almost 12 weeks straight that the girls had been doing the high protein, clean eating diet that I set out at the beginning of this challenge. Over the past couple of weeks I had noticed their weight loss had stalled and they were generally lacking energy and getting grumpy and short tempered – all signs to me that it was time to have a change in their diet. It wouldn’t be for long, just long enough to give their minds, bodies and metabolisms a break before they had to knuckle down again to bring it all in for their parade.
So for the past couple of weeks both ladies have been having:-
3 x Fish Oil, 2 x Vitamin C, 3 x per day, Organic Vital Greens, Magnesium, Silica – all courtesy of Darwin’s Number 1 Supplement and Nutrition Store – Wicked NRG!
M1: Shimmy Shake Smoothie w/ 1 x scoop chocolate protein powder, 1 x tablespoon frozen berries, 100ml skim milk and water and ice to taste. Blend and love!
M2: 2 x Whole eggs with 2 rashers short cut bacon
M3: 120g Tuna with a salad and ½ an avocado
M4: Same as M1
M5: 120g Fish or chicken breast with salad
Optional: 2 x slices of pumpernickel bread with peanut butter and 1 x punnet of strawberries
Fast track to this week and only 8 weeks out from the big reveals we have tightened up the girl’s diet again to help them shed some more kilos. Here is their current food plan:
M1: 3 x egg whites with 1 x bunch of asparagus
M2: Shimmy Shake Smoothie – without the milk
M3: Tuna with Salad
M4: 30g nuts
M5: Fish or chicken Breast with Salad or Greens
This tighter diet along with extra cardio – we up it by 15 mins everyday every fortnight – will really help the girls to shed extra kilos over the coming weeks!
It’s very exciting for all of us and I can see the glint in all of their eyes as the settle in for the final hard yards of their challenge.
Please be sure to support all of the ladies whenever you see them – they are all doing an amazing job!
