This Week’s Macros (Staying the same):
I am keeping them the same macros as last week since they are still working for me.
Last week I began Ashley Kaltwasser’s (aka AshleyKfit) Glute & Ab Program.
It was a good week for me. I feel like I am in the groove now and there aren’t as many hunger issues. One thing that may have helped was my switching to a new workout program. I think I have been over-training for the last few months and my body may have needed a little rest.
I decided to purchase Ashley Kaltwasser’s Glute & Ab Program and I have been really happy with the workouts. In no way is this a plug for the program because I have absolutely nothing to do with it…I purchased it, they did not send me it.
When I first downloaded the program I was concerned that it would not be hard enough because there were less exercises than I am used to doing, but like I said, I have been pleasantly surprised. Work smarter, not harder right?!?!?!
That being said, there were MORE ab exercises than I have been doing and man was I sore last week. There is a reason why her abs are so flipping amazing! I feel like my abs have leaned out quite a bit in the last week. This point in a cut is always fun because it seems like you see more results daily.
My hammies were also really sore and that is an are of my legs that is notoriously difficult for me to build (yay…sore there is good news)!
I am entering week 6 now which means I have just under 3 weeks left until my 40th b-day and I am more motivated than ever. Posting these updates has been a big help in keeping me accountable.
Have an awesome week everyone!
