Those of you who follow me on Facebook know I am following a 3-month training program.

This trainer is not your usual moderate program; this one is hard-core. I am lifting like a man, doing cardio twice a day, eating super clean foods and taking a few supplements every day (multi-vitamin, fish oil, l-carnitine, yohimbe, green tea, egg-white protein powder, and BCAAs).

It is a big challenge, requiring a ton of dedication and a strong-will, and I am committed to it 100%. I did it last year with my husband and we had amazing results. This time, I know my results will be even better! Want to know why? Well, I have gained a lot of muscle mass this last year, I've become way stronger, and I've developed great eating habits (knowing my body pretty well in how it reacts to different food types and mastering food-timing). I am confident that by the end of the three months I will look and feel great. Wait and see! 😉

Since I have to eat so clean and can only have certain types of food, such as:

  • Proteins: Chicken/Turkey breast, fish, eye-of -round steak, bison, egg whites and protein powder
  • Vegetables: Any
  • Slow digestive carbs: sweet potatoes

I've been forced to get creative with my recipes.

Here is a nice example of a regular vegetable that I've taken from average-tasting to great-tasting. Let me introduce you to my lovely Roasted Brussels Sprouts recipe. I am addicted to these babies!

    These brussels sprouts look FABULOUS, and this is certainly something I need to make for my husband and myself in the near future. Thanks for sharing, and best of luck with your training!
