Losing weight and keeping it off: for years.

 

 

IMG_1636IMG_0186It’s been ten years since the pictures on the left were taken, and the one on the right was taken a week ago.  Women First magazine is doing a story on transformation contests, and the picture in the blue dress is a test shot for the official photo shoot.  The publicity is very gratifying, but I admit, these past few weeks since Gordon Studio closed have been a little dis-orienting.  For the past 4 years, I have had somewhere to go to deliver my message about training and nutrition.  As the combination of resistance and interval training for fitness, and Ketogenic eating for fat loss have gained acceptance, more health conscious people are searching for information, so I’m still busy on line, but I do miss seeing the faces and enjoying the company of the women I was training.

So I am working enthusiastically on the next phase of my “Live” training business.  I am putting together a program that combines mobility, intervals, balance, and flexibility with a techniques that specifically give my students the skills they need in order to lift safely on their own.

I got my results by lifting 3 times a week,  combining intervals and dance  2 days a week, and recovering on the remaining two with yoga, gardening, swimming, or even golf with my husband.  Of course the other major element of my fat loss was Sugar Freedom.  Now that I can re-design my work schedule, I am back to the same system, and I have left off my previous intermittent fasting, and I’m back to three meals a day, with no snacks.

It’s working beautifully, as I now have the wonderful experience of never going hungry.  Here is today’s menu:

Breakfast: 2 Eggs, 3 Strips of Uncured Bacon, 1/4 avocado, 1 cup Roasted Cauliflower, 2T Salsa.

Lunch: 2 Chicken Thighs,  Romaine Lettuce Salad with Olive Oil and Vinegar Dressing, 1 Cup Roasted Cauliflower, 2T Salsa,

Dinner: 2 Lamb Chops,  Romaine Lettuce Salad with Olive Oil and Vinegar Dressing, 1 Cup Sauteed Zucchini Curls, 2T Salsa, 1/4 Avocado.

Believe me, this leaves me full, satisfied, and I can hardly believe I’m losing fat each day on this much food.  Then again, when I track it at www.fatsecret.com, it only comes out to about 1400 calories: just right for my goals.

This brings me to a quiet offer I’m making.

For a very limited time, I will design 4 weeks of training, (at home or gym based) plus meal plans for a very special price.  Just e-mail me with the subject: Summer Fat Loss Plan.
