My weight loss plan and diet REVEAL

Good Morning everyone and Happy Wednesday aka HUMP day. :D I know its 12:00am but I am going to be super busy tomorrow so I wanted to post early as possible. I wanted to blog today about my Exercise plan and diet plan to show y'all what I do on a daily basis:

Le Diet-->
For Breakfast:
(I always follow portion sizes on the back of boxes)
this cereal is delicious, affordable, low on calories and a complex carb everything I look for 
& then I add a 1/2 cup of 1% or skim milk

For my late morning snack I usually eat one of these below :) NOM
They are SOOO yummy and def. a great pick me up snack and the dark chocolate has many health benefits PLUS only 90 cals.

Lunch: {i eat a late lunch due to classes}

These sandwich thins are amazing and I get them in WHOLE WHEAT for the complex carb attribute and toast it and add NATURAL peanut butter [it has less trans fats] & to top it off I have a serving of fruit with it

I usually eat leftovers if I have them but my dinners are pretty basic I love making pasta bc I am part Italian but I knew my italian cooking needed to change because it was a carb overload so I decided to try wheat noodles and whole grain! I LOVE IT and if you are good at cooking pasta you will not tell the difference i swear. 

So I'll make pasta and make sure it's portioned for two (my bf and I) and then ill have a lean meat with it like chicken or turkey. 
GREEN BEANS are always on hand in my house.

and if I am tempted for a late night snack it's 
RAW veggies:
-etc and I dip it in LOW FAT CREAM CHEESE

*DIET TIP: never buy fat free items always buy LOW FAT or LIGHT bc [the fat free has added sugar---don't believe me read the back of the labels that's why it's there]* I know all of this stuff because my lovely bf is  nutrition major and he has changed my life so much that I do not like fried food anymore! 

Le Work out--> 

I hit the gym at least 3 times a week but I shoot for 5...and when I do- man do I feel amazing! This is what i do every time I am there:

1st: I hit the elliptical for 30 minutes on incline and 2 resistance 
There is the beaut.

Then I do abs and push ups-
 3 sets of 20 for the abs and 15 push ups 

[push ups are hard to me! haha!]

Next I go to the weight machines and do the leg press 3 sets of 10 with the weight on 130lb and the but machine as i call it 3 sets of 5 with 150lb of weight (gets your butt perky and toned PROMISE)

Then I do the captains chair 3 sets of 20 of raising the leg- for those of you who do not know what the captains chair is i'll post this lil pic V 

Lastly I do the crotch machine (i know I sound stupid but I really forget the correct names of these machines haha)
I do 3 sets of 15 on the inside ones and outside ones 

and then I walk on the treadmill for 15 mins on 3.8 speed on 15 ALL THE WAY INCLINE. 

My weight goal:

132 lb. right now I am 141- and trust me I can't fit into my fav jeans so I am working really hard Birth control (CONTROLLED) my figure and cravings...but ladies it's MIND OVER MATTER!

Have a blessed morning/afternoon & night and this little saying via Pinterest for you to ponder on,
