6 meals v.s. 3 meals

Posted Jan 07 2009 12:00am
Ok, so I am going back and forth about this. Should I be eating small and healthy meals every 2.5 hours or should I eat 3 good sized meals with no snacking in between? I hear good things about both. Jillian Michaels favors the 3 meal system saying that eating all day may cause you to eat too many calories and leaves you feeling unsatisfied. At the same time I can also agree with eating 6 small meals/snacks all day because it keeps you from over indulging at any one meal.

The last big loss I had was 10 lbs in one week. I look back at how I was eating and realize that I was eating 3 meals a day... small portions...and no snacking at all. So maybe I should learn from this and go back to it. In fact, I'm not sure why I stopped doing this in the first place. Guess I was too excited about the 10 lb loss! I sooooo need another 10 lb loss!

I came across this challenge at Marks blog ! I am going to give it a try this week and see how I feel....

Here is my challenge. Do the following 6 exercises in a row, no break in between:(optional-I like to do a hard 1-2 mile run prior)
1. 30 squats

2. 15 push ups

3. 30 second wall sit

5. 30 second plank

6. 15 Burpees
Take a 1 minute break and repeat it 2 times!
*modify if necessary!*

I am going to do a good 1-2 mile run before I start it to give my cardio a head start!

I am only giving myself 4 points for yesterday. I did my 5K, drank 96 oz of water, took my vitamins, and of course did a 30 min workout.... but my thinking positive was off, and I ate a couple of things that were not 'clean'. I got mad at myself but realized I just needed to keep moving. Today will be a 5 pointer!

I'll leave you with a picture of 3 of my 15 chickens. These three decided they wanted to play in the snow with the kids! It was too funny.
