But I’m here to say, stay strong! All of this hard work will be worth it, and you will feel so proud of yourself if you stay on plan for the rest of the week. Trust me, it’s always hard, but it is always worth it!

I am continuing my cutting phase right now, probably for a few more weeks to slim down before the holidays start 🙂 I am focusing on getting as much of my carbohydrates from veggies as possible to avoid any bloating and lean out. This is a high protein meal plan, which helps me keep my calories up avoid muscle loss while I try to burn the fat.

It’s important to remember you can not build muscle and lose fat at the same time. Your body is either in a deficiency or a surplus, but it cannot do both. So you must tailor your meal plan to fit your specific goal. As always, if you are looking to achieve something specific and need a plan, I offer personalized meal plans and workout schedules!

I also have an awesome new program coming out next month that will get you BIG results if you put the work in. Send me an email at christiemackenzie6@gmail.com for more info!
