I am back in the 150 club!! FINALLY! My pre-pregnancy weight was 155-157 and look at me back in the club! This morning I weighed in at 159 pounds…did I want more? Heck yes. Did I think I deserved more? Absolutely, but that doesn’t change the facts. I have been working much harder in the cardio department and I made a big stride this week. I ran for 30 min straight! No stopping, no riding the rails, no walking. The last time I can remember being able to do this was at about 3-4 months pregnant so it’s been about 9 months for me... I think this whole “fitness” thing might be working ????
So where is my head at? READY TO DOMINATE. I literally have 9 lbs standing between myself and the finish line. Do I want to spend 9 weeks losing this weight. HELL NO but if that is what it takes then I will do it. I have no other choice. I have gotten a lot of questions about what a “day of eating” looks like for me. Below I will easily break down everything so that you can see how easy this is to follow!
98% of what I consume for food during the week can be found at ANY of our eight 95 Nutrition locations. I do swing by the grocery store to grab a few fresh veggies for snacks during the week.
Weekly 95 Order
21- Lunch/dinner items of your choice- You can literally chose pancakes for dinner. The Beauity of 95’s portion controlled meals is that they are all “calorically similar” which means you can mix and match as you please!
This week I ordered
3 - Garbage plates
5 - Baked Ziti Casserole - (Legit one of my favorite meals EVER)
2 - Beef Stroganoff
2 - Brew Pub Burgers
2 - Walking tacos
4 - Loaded potatoes
2 - European pasta
1 - Baja Cali Fish
I also picked up a 5lb tub of Rule 1 Vanilla Whey which I use as my breakfast. I just find a shake is easiest for me as I am MOST busy in the morning. If you do not want a shake you can absolutley order yourself 95’s breakfast. The protein pancakes come highly recommended. I also got an assortment of protein bars. I love the "One bar" that we sell. Doesn't have that super fake sugar aftertaste that Quest bars have.
Grocery store Order
Snap peas, Cucumbers, Tomatoes , Colored Bell peppers
How I Eat daily
Fasted cardio <— I have to workout in the morning bc I am EXHAUSTED at night.

8:00pm- Emergency snack (If needed)
11:30-12:00am- Whenever Melania decides it’s bedtime is when I go to sleep!
I really try hard to shut down eating “meals” by about 6pm. If I need something later I will have a protein shake or a 1/2 of a protein bar. It don’t always NEED something in the evening but if I am EXTRA hungry I defiantly have a little snack. The goal is to not go to bed starving but also not go to bed with a FULL stomach.
Navigating weight loss can seem overwhelming if you have never done this before OR if you have tried EVERY diet out there with no success. If you are reading this and saying “this seems too easy” I mean then I have done my job. Losing weight through portion control IS THIS EASY. If you stick to the program (as I have thus far) you can expect to lose 1-3 lbs per week on average. I averaged out my weight loss thus far and I have lost an average of 1.7 lbs per week! As I ALWAYS remind you friends, I have done this WITHOUT suffering, WITHOUT starving myself and WITHOUT cutting entire food groups from my diet. This diet program does not require you to exercise but it does help speed things along. The key to success in this program is to be HONEST with yourself. YOU CANNOT eat outside of the meals given to you or this will not work.
