It’s exactly 67 days until the first day of summer 2010. Are you Bikini ready?
I didn’t think so… But, neither am I!
But if you follow along with me for the next few weeks together we can get there or at least really close :).
So here’s the problem:
Too much fat and jiggle in the middle… It’s been an issue since I’ve started (and stopped) having kids and I’m finally ready, willing and able to put an end to my frustration once and for all!
As of October 24th 2009 I finished my first and only round of famed P90X. It was a very hard 13 week challenge that my hubby Adam and I did together. He did the ‘Classic’ and I started with the lean which was, in my mind, too easy then switched doubles after the first ‘recovery week’.
I have no plans to repeat p90x in the foreseeable future (look for an expanded explanation in a future blog post). So, I had to find an alternative.
Diet, exercise and healthy supplementation as needed, of course :). So, I’ve been doing research on low glycemic foods, natural supplements and short effective exercises.
What I’ve found so far is I’ve been mislead about what foods healthy, which help you lose wait and which types of exercise routines help to effectively blast fat without expensive home workout programs or spending hours on a mill at the gym! Yeah!!!
At the time of this writing my short list of stats is this…
Weight- 154.8lbs. Goal Weight– 135lbs.
Body Fat%- 36 Goal Body Fat%– 20
Body type- Hour Glass
The plan is to adapt a slow carbohydrate diet as mentioned and expanded upon on the famed www.MarksDailyApple.com ( The Primal Blueprint author) and do the shortest yet most effective fat shredding workout programs.
Since I intend to make what I’m doing a lifestyle change as opposed to just a temporary fat loss plan, I am collecting and developing recipes to cook at home and restaurant dishes too.
- Weights- 1lb-30lb dumbbells (sold separately)
- Yoga Mat
- Fat Calipers
- Interval exercise timer
- The GI Index Chart
An assortment of fitness magazine exercises and fitness DVDs I already own and have used so I can mix and match to keep things fun and interesting!
