This week, I’ve planned for it to be an extra productive week. There aren’t many additional activities planned besides golf with Tom and a photo shoot for his golf. Read on below to see how my week went.

Sunday, April 28th:
I started the day with taking care of some of my to-do items, worked on my next fitness product, did some research, and relaxed.
Then Chea and I did a workout of my creation together. I did a 90-minute workout (strength training, core work, and walking) + 10 minutes of full-body stretching on the Power Plate.
I wore this Ellie top for my outdoor workout today!
I relaxed with Chea after the workout, and then Will, Chea, Tom, and I went to the movies and watched Pain and Gain. A lot of fun but a strange, true movie.
Day 155 complete. It was a fun day!
Monday, April 29th:
I worked in the morning, took care of to-do items, and edited music. I did some work on my next fitness product and worked again in the afternoon.
Will, Chea, Tom, and I made dinner together. Tonight it was a salad, homemade bruchetta on Ezekial bread, and gluten-free, dairy-free pizza.
I worked out in the evening today. I did 10 minutes of Pilates + 20-minute run around the park with Tom + 10 minutes full-body stretching on the Power Plate + 5 minutes foam rolling.
I wore this Ellie top to work today!
Day 156 complete and a fun & yummy dinner together!
Tuesday, April 30th:
Today I started the day off with a Pilates workout. I did a 20-minute Pilates workout + 18 holes of golf at Twin Oaks Golf Course with Tom + 10 minutes full-body stretching on the Power Plate.
It was a lovely day, and I really enjoyed playing golf with Tom on our day off together. I haven’t played nearly as much golf lately as I’d like to. However, I’m happy that every time I play I still seem to somehow improve!
Tom has been needing some more golf photos, so we also did a golfing photo shoot while we were there. I was the photographer this time.
Day 157 complete. I had a fun round of 18 holes at Twin Oaks Golf Course!
Wednesday, May 1st:
I started my day by working on my next fitness product. Then I did my workout. I did 30 minutes of Pilates + a 20-minute cardio workout + 10 minutes full-body stretching on the Power Plate.
I then took care of my to-do list and worked until 8:15pm. After that, I took care of some necessities and relaxed.
Day 158 complete. It was a busy day.
Thursday, May 2nd:
I did an INSANITY workout this morning. I completed Insanity’s Pure Cardio workout (approximately 40 minutes of intense cardio and plyometric exercises) + 10 minutes of full-body stretching on the Power Plate.
I did some work on my next fitness product, did research, and took care of my to-do list. After work in the evening, Tom and I went to the hot tub and pool for some hot and cold therapy.
Day 159 complete. I enjoyed working on my fitness product!
Friday, May 3rd:
I worked out at 5:00am at Chuze Fitness. I did 15 minutes of intense bike intervals + full-body stretching. Later, Tom and I went for a walk and I did my 45-minute workout creation (walking while doing arm exercises, strength exercises, and abs) + full-body stretching.
After working in the morning and afternoon, Will, Chea, Tom, and I went to see Iron Man 3 at the movies and had dinner at On The Border. Tom and I shared the fajitas. We got the chicken served separately, so Tom could have it. Then I had the black beans, vegetables, guacamole, and salsa with corn tortillas.
Day 160 complete. It was a fun evening!
Saturday, May 4th:
I worked until 2:45pm, ran errands, and did some work on my next fitness project.
Tom and I went for a walk in the evening.
Day 161 complete. I love walks in the evening!
The week went very well and much as planned! It was productive and another successful week! As the experiment comes close to the 6-month mark, it’s interesting to notice that my cravings are getting stronger. I will definitely have a plan for when I hit the 6-month mark!
Yay! I’ve completed my 23rd week out of 26 weeks!
Be sure to check out my original 6-Month Nutrition and Fitness Experiment post for a list of all my posts and recipes!
My own variation of a sugar-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free vegetarian diet:
Sugar-free consists of no sugar, sugar substitutes, honey, or other equivalent except for a small amount of preferably natural sweetener that is already in a product such as bread or whey protein.
Dairy-free includes a few exceptions. I’m including whey protein. I also have times of experimenting with Greek yogurt and regular yogurt to see if they are beneficial to me. In addition, I include eggs in my diet, which is a variation from a vegan diet.
Gluten-free also includes a few exceptions. I include Ezekiel Bread or sprouted bread, which is close to gluten-free in how it’s digested but not actually gluten-free. Some gluten-free plans say oats are fine and some do not. I include oats in my plan.
My fitness plan:
My exercise consists of workouts 6 days per week. The only exception can be if I do an additional workout on a day to count for one of the days or on a recovery week every few months.
