Tirzah reporting for duty: Mission get SWOLEITP student & CFM Office Manager Tirzah breaks down her goals for the CFMakeover:
I've done a lifestyle challenge before (last year’s Whole Life Challenge) and I learned a lot about what works for me. As a moderate pescatarian (by that I mean I'll eat salmon and that's about it for meat), my diet is mostly comprised of veggies, fruit, fish, nuts and some quinoa.
I take SFH Fortified & Recovery protein after workouts, which has really helped my progress & recovery.
My issue with the last challenge was I felt like I leaned out too much. I'm what you would call a "hard gainer" and if I'm not diligent about meal prep I've noticed that my gains slow down a bit.
Here’s the plan this time around:
*Gain 5-6# of muscle
* Add 5# to my 3RM Front Squat
* 7-10 Strict Pull Ups
***Last challenge I was strictly paleo and I noticed two things: I became too lean for my liking but I really like the definition I developed. So this time around I will do the following:
*Eat moderately Paleo but include quinoa, SFH protein, and oatmeal from time to time for breakfast.
*Minimal sugar (no added sugar in foods)
*Plenty of H20
*Plenty of veggies, fish and fruit
*Grocery shopping Saturday mornings
*Cook for the upcoming week on Sunday (breakfast, lunch, dinner & snacks)
*Run 2x wk
*Yoga 1x wk
