YOU GUYS. Today I weighed in at 129.2lbs!!!! The last time I was under 130lbs was when I had an eating disorder back in 2008! #NBD

Only 4.2lbs more and I'll be at my ultimate goal of 125lbs! I'm a happy gal :)

UPDATE: 5-3-1 program

Its been a while!

I'm still gluten-free and 75% dairy-free. I do treat myself to ice cream every week. SORRY I'M NOT SORRY.

I started the 5-3-1 program last week and I wanted to post the progress so far. Hopefully, I'll be able to have contrasting photos in a couple of weeks! I just have to keep eating right :)

What is the 5-3-1 program?
Its a four week long power-lifting program focused on maxing-out on the three powerlifting lifts (deadlift, squat, bench press) plus overhead press. You need to find your one-rep max (1RM) for those four lifts, then you're able to calculate the workout.

So, THESE just happened!

I switched up my diet ONCE AGAIN and decided to try making these gems for my post-workout meal:

Gluten & dairy-free chocolate soy-protein pancakes
1/4 cup rice flour
1 scoop chocolate soy protein powder
3/8 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
(1 tbsp olive oil on the griddle)
2tbsp of honey on top

Nutrition facts
KCAL = 479
F = 8g (14%)
C = 66.38g (57%)
P = 35.38g (31%)

Let's see how this treats me for a while!

Trying AdvoCare's MNS Max-E

Ever since I started the 24-Day Challenge a couple of months ago, I used the MNS Max-3 kit for overall wellness. I just decided to order the MNS Max-E kit along with a bottle of Amplify A.T. to switch things up. I've also been religiously using LeptiLean and Catalyst for a few weeks and love them both! Perhaps, this'll be my favorite combination?

CHECKING IN: Getting stronger .

I've been doing same routine for a little over two weeks and I've increased the weight for most of my lifts! I really enjoy doing four sets with high repetitions. The first 20 repetition set acts as a warm-up for that particular lift, then the following two sets of 15 give me a really pump. The final set of twelve repetitions is challenging, but that's what's making me stronger.

Speaking of getting stronger, I've been taking a supplement that helps me protect my muscle mass and strength during a workout and during times of caloric deficit. Its called Catalyst. On my off-days (two days per week) I take two caps with the "Before Breakfast Color Pack." The other five days of the week I take two caps 10-15 minutes before my workout. I've noticed an increase in my strength and energy levels during workout and more consistent energy overall.

I think I'm going to do this routine for two more weeks then change it up. I also am working on tweeking my diet. I think I'm going to try carb-cycling...
