Something very exciting is happening . . . exactly 42 days from yesterday.
While I'm not going to tell you what it is (until after it happens), I will tell you that it is something that I am motivated to get in shape for. I've been trying since before the new year. I've not been dedicated though. I work out hard, then I get lazy. That is not going to happen this time. I've decided. I've committed. I will succeed. (Any BeachBody customers recognize that tagline?)
In order to stay on track, I will be posting here on my blog regularly. I'm hoping by posting, I will be able to see patterns in when I struggle the most with staying on track. Knowing the problem is a necessity in trying to fix it. I will try to post daily, but make no guarantees. The actual workout will take priority over writing about it. So, if I only have time for one or the other then you'll miss a day or two of updates. Many of the updates will be short. Those of you following me on Facebook, fear not, I will not post every workout update in your feed. I don't want to lose followers over my mission . . . just weight. :o)
To give you an idea of my goals, I'm going to give you a bit of information about me. However, I'm not going to tell you how much I weigh. I will tell you that on Saturday I weighed exactly 13 lbs more than I did before I got pregnant with Peanut. When I got pregnant, I was at a decent weight, but not my ideal weight. My goal is to lose 20 lbs. Will I lose 20 lbs in 42 days? Not likely! However, I hope to be at least half way to my goal by Saturday March 26, 2011. How am I going to do this? Well, here's what I've done so far -
Exercise - Tony Horton's Power 90 Sweat 3-4 with AbRipper 200
Diet - 1 Banana, 1/2 c orange juice, 1 c Raisin Bran w/ skim milk, 6 oz yogurt, 1/2 can Italian Vegetable Soup, handful Almonds, 1/2 grilled chicken breast, rice pilaf, fresh fruit cup with pineapple, grapes, and apples, water
Exercise - Tony Horton's Power 90 Sculpt 3-4
Diet - 1 c Honey Nut Cheerios w/skim milk, 1/2 c orange juice, 6oz yogurt, 1/2 can Italian Vegetable Soup, handful Almonds, salad with grilled chicken, peppers, carrots and lettuce, 1 grapefruit, blueberries, grapes, 1 banana, water
Wish me luck!
