What I'm doing: Carrie's exercise and nutrition

Posted: Updated:

By Carrie Duncan - bio | email

So, what am I doing?

I workout 5 to 6 days a week.  Right now, I am trying to do cardio all of those days because I need to burn off the fat.  I try to get in AT LEAST 30 minutes a day.  Usually, I will do 45-60 minutes of cardio. I also add in weights 2-3 days a week.  I use a yoga ball to do a series or core body exercises, my old trainer, Brian, showed me.  I try to workout first thing in the morning, so it is over and done with.  It's one less thing I need to fit into my day. 

I met with a nutritionist, Adrienne at E-Fitness, and she put me on a 1200 to 1300 calorie plan.  Here's how it goes:

Each Day I get: 10 Carbs, 6 Meats/Proteins, 6 Veggies, 4 Fats
15 grams of carbohydrates=1 Carb
7  grams of protein=1Meat/Protein
5 grams of fat=1Fat
Veggies, I really eat as much as I want, I try to stick to really vibrant colors, the brighter the colors, the more nutrients in that vegetable.  WATCH OUT for starchy ‘veggies' like corn and carrots.  But, hey, let's face it, it's better to much on carrots than chips.

I've been told this plan is a lot like weight watchers, so that something many people can identify with.  I've started trying to count my calories a little better, too.  I write down EVERYTHING I eat.  That in itself will keep you honest. Well, it's worked for me.

Let me stress...I am NOT a nutritionist and this plan was written for me by a liscensed dietician.  Make sure to check with a health professional before starting an exercise and nutritional plan.

With that said, GOOD LUCK!!! Keep me posted on all of your successes and even your hardships.  Maybe, we can try to keep each other motivated!
