22 Minute Hard Corps Test Group Starts TOMORROW!!

It’s FINALLY here! I am starting my FIRST test group for 22 Minute Hard Corps. I am part of a HUGE group on Facebook called Summer Strong with about 12
12,000 people who are ready to look amazing in a bikini or board shorts this summer. I am also leading a group of 7 people in a smaller group so I can help them stay committed to their goals. Well… that means that I need to be a good leader, and good leaders need to set a good example. So today I took my pictures and measurements. My goals for the next 8 weeks are to lose a few inches in my hips, keep toning the butt, and work on my six pack. I am not worried about losing weight, but I do want to build muscle and tone!

Then I did my usual meal prep. The 22 Minute Hard Corps meal plan is very similar to the 21 day fix.


I am starting with Plan 2. According to my weight I should be in Plan 1, but I also don’t want to lose weight. My hope is to tone and build muscle, so I went up one bracket.







I am kinda boring when it comes to meal prep. I sometimes get creative for dinner, but my breakfasts stay pretty consistent. Here is a pic of some of the things I will eat for lunch, breakfast, and snacks. All I did was microwave some broccoli and cauliflower. I took some tilapia and chicken and cooked it in the oven for about 20 minutes. I seasoned the chicken and fish with some Mrs. Dash sodium free seasonings. I also made some breakfast muffins the other day (4 eggs,  5 ounces of cooked spinach, 1/2 cup cooked mushrooms, diced tomatoes, and some salt and pepper). Also bagged up some carrots and celery and boiled some eggs.
