First four weeks

      Everyone is always asking me to share my diet plans. And I'm not one to keep my ways of living a secret. I have started this blog to reach out, help others, and inspire. I do like to eat healthy year around, because I simply love health and also the strive I have to keep my blood sugars under control. I along with most others who compete, train and diet for 12 solid weeks. Everyone does things different and everyones bodies reacts in a different way. We are all unique snow flakes :). My last 12 weeks of training did NOT go so well because I was trying a diet that my body hated. So with lots of research, trial and error, highs and low blood sugars,up and down insulin intakes,  and blood sweat and tears, I finally found the perfect diet that my body loves. The way it makes me feel, the way it leveled out my blood sugars, and the results I was seeing was well worth all the work I put into trying to find the right diet. If you have not already guessed, health is pretty important to me.

    One thing you need to consider is that the worst thing you could do is compare yourself to another woman. I stand 4,10'' and average between 95-103 pounds. I have a friend who weighs 10 pounds more than me, but stands 5,6''. And let me tell you, I could not squeeze one of my thighs into her jeans if I tried. She is teeny tiny and with out a doubt I'm twice as thick as her.. So don't try to make your scale at home read the same as your idol, your friend, sister, anyone. Just compete with yourself and become the best YOU that you can be. So consider your body type, your goals, and remember that the larger the body, the more calorie intake you need. Im going to take you step by step through my day of the first 4 weeks of training.
