At the beginning of December, I decided to buy the Amanda Adams AA Bikini Body program because I needed a new workout plan. I like having a schedule to follow at the gym, otherwise I tend to go and just do the same things or a random assortment of things. It’s a 12 week program, with totally doable workouts and a meal plan, which basically just outlines the calories you should be consuming per day (mine is 1900, so not depriving myself!) and the breakdown of nutrients (protein/carb/fat) to strive for. I’ve been using the MyFitnessPal app to help with this, and I like it because I can put in my own recipes to see the calorie and nutrient breakdown! I am now in Phase 2 of the workouts and love it so far. I can feel and see my muscles getting stronger, and I am sore as I am typing this!
The program was designed by Amanda Adams, a fitness model, and Ander Wilson, a nutritionist. How cute are they??
Check out Amanda’s website here; I promise you will become obsessed with her. Because besides having an awesome FIT body, she is also extremely down to earth and advocates for a normal approach to eating and working out. Not some insane program where you drink powders for meals and workout 7 days a week, but one that is actually realistic! That’s what I like about the program; the workouts are very do-able with a busy schedule, the calories per day are totally reasonable, and she encourages girls not to deprive themselves of dessert/alcohol/the foods you love! She also does blog posts on her site as well as posts regularly on Facebook and Instagram. If you can’t tell, I love the program, her philosophy on life, and the fact that she is so real about everything. I am in no way affiliated with her or the program (I wish…) but I like to share things that work for me in regards to fitness and nutrition, just in case others are interested as well. 🙂
I am also happy to report that 2015 has been awesome so far! I’ve been hanging out with friends and our new dog, I booked a vacation to South and North Carolina for March, and am really taking time to appreciate all that I have in life. Looking forward to seeing what else 2015 has to offer!
