This weekend was so summery and fun! Our first hot weekend. And I indulged. A lot. My diet consisted of processed foods like chips and Oreo cookies and alcoholic beverages full of refined sugar. Oh the horror of it! It was fun and I felt like it was a summer celebration and now I won’t feel the need to fall off the wagon again for quite a while – perhaps I can hold out until my stagette?!?! I’m back to craving whole foods and clean eats and would say all those naughty choices are merely a memory, but my bloated stomach says otherwise.
As I was saying in a previous post, I have been searching and searching for a workout program that I feel is a good fit for me. I think the key here is just committing to something for a length of time. The main programs I looked at (and I absolutely think they are all great) were: Tone It Up, Jillian Michaels, the dvd’s from my Rip:60, and James Wilson’s program. Aaaaand…. I’ve decided to go with James Wilson’s program!! The awesome thing is that right when I was looking at his Facebook page a post popped up announcing a Summer Sizzle contest!! You can find the details here. It’s the exact motivation I need at the exact time I need it. I am going to follow his at home program and basically have everything he says is required for equipment (very minimal). Once you pay for his program you are invited into a private Facebook group with others who are doing the program as well, and it is an incredibly interactive and friendly group! They are so helpful and kind and I don’t feel intimidated at all to ask a question which is so nice. He has templates for caloric intake, what to eat in a day, and just so much info!
I have a plan for a big poster to put in my workout room that I can keep track of everything on and will post a pic
if when I finish it… maybe this evening?
Loving the feeling of looking forward to a workout. The contest starts on Monday, May 13 so for the rest of this week I will be doing my own thing and possibly trying to get some Couch to 5 k in?
ENJOY THE SUN!!!
