first day of shooting done!

  

 

After months of training and preparation, we finally began our first of 3 days of filming for my latest project. This past week included water/salt loading along with enough carbs over these last three days to keep me going for months! Over the course of this weekend I’m going to continue to carb load to keep my body fueled and getting all the nutrition it needs. What does a high carb day look like for me?

People have been asking if I cut out alcohol, cheat meals, or sugar during this process? First of all, I haven’t had a drink of alcohol in 3 weeks, not because I was worried about weight gain, but because I found it was really hard to balance training, parenting and running at full speed after drinking wine. With that being said, I did drink a glass of red wine last night before my shoot today (had to celebrate!) No, I did not give up cheat meals, as I didn’t feel as though I needed to with all the heavy weight lifting I was adding to my daily workouts. My body seemed to burn right through the cheat meal, so I decided to relax and the only thing I eliminated this last week was sugar. Sugar is pretty harsh on our immune systems, and when I eat a cheat meal with lots of sugar, my body almost feels hung over the next day. Without a clear head, it’s hard to push my body to the next level during training sessions, so I had to say goodbye to sugar this past week. 

 

 

What was the highlight of the first day of shooting? I think one of the major highlights for me today was having my body fat percentage tested by Shane Pizzey from Aspire Fitness. I’m a complete nerd when it comes to learning new things, I LOVE IT! I really felt like Shane took the time today, not only test my body fat, but teach me how it should be done properly and what a skin fold test can really tell a person about their training.  I walked away feeling inspired and couldn’t wait to read up more on the information he passed along to me.

I will be posting my body fat percentage and measurements tomorrow so stay tuned!
