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.
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;)
