As I stepped on the scale today, I discovered that I weigh the most that I have ever weighed in my life. About six months ago, I was in killer shape and felt amazing. However, I let myself go and gave into my sweet tooth addiction. Instead of beating myself up mentally, I want to take a moment to talk about how I am handling this moving forward.
I started following the Lean Body Challenge workouts. However, I have not stayed true to my diet. The only thing that has happened is my strength picked up along with my weight. I do want to point out that we should never beat ourselves up over the scale, but it sure sucks to see it. We are only human, right?
I am starting to follow the diet today the best that I can. If you have any recommended veg-friendly meals, please share in the comment section below.
On this plan, they recommend sticking to the 40/30/30 plan.

Overall calories _____ x .40 = _____ (Ex: 1400/1500 x .40 = 560/600 protein calories a day)
Protein calories _____ \ 5 or 6 (# of meals) = ________ (Ex: 560/600 \ 5 = 112/120 calories of protein per meal)
Overall calories _____ x .30 = _____ (Ex: 1400/1500 x .30 = 420/450 carbohydrate calories a day)
Carbohydrate calories _____ \ 5 or 6 (# of meals) = ________ (Ex: 420/450 \ 5 = 84/90 calories of carbohydrates per meal)
