So far January 2010 hasn’t stacked up to be how I expected. So I’ve kicked myself in the pants and decided I’ve had enough! My body is not going to change on it’s own. I have to get back to being strict about my eating and working out. The problem is I’ve been trying to workout after I take the kids to daycare but at the same time if I have to go to the store or have housework to do or an errand to run, then the workout doesn’t get done. So I’ve come up with a plan. I’m going to do Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred. It’s a tough circuit training workout. It’s only 20 minutes but it’s killer. I’ve attempted the workout a few times, and it’s really hard. I know it will change my body. It’s no joke. So I’ve decided to blog thru this process. I need it to make me accountable. So here’s the plan:
Eating is the biggest part for me with weight loss. It’s all about planning and preparation. I’ll be doing low carb, that’s what works best for me.
I will be doing the 30 Day Shred 5 days a week. There are three phases and I will do each phase for a month. On Saturdays I will do Turbo Jam and anytime that I can fit in an additional workout it will be Turbo Jam.
I will post weight, measurements, size and pics at the beginning of each phase and at the end. I will blog throughout the time of me doing it. I’ve recommitted myself to getting my body back. I’ve also set up a rewards program for hitting different goals. And I’m saving money so that I can reward myself. I have a long list of beauty items that I want!
Here’s how it should work time wise:
Start date- Monday February 1
Phase 2 start – March 1
Phase 3 start – March 29
Finish date – April 26
This is a killer workout and I know it will change my body as long as I do it. I know that by day 7 I’ll be much better at it and I’ll be able to do all of the push ups eventually and be able to complete the workout each time. I’ve tried the workout a couple of times and it’s difficult but doable. I’m going to start at 3lb weights because I can’t complete all of the reps with the 5lb weights that I’m used to. I think I can be a size 12 by the end of the month. I just have to be consistent and get back into the “all or nothing” mindset. I can do it. I will do it. I will blog about it and keep a food journal again. I have to get it together. Spring will be here soon. I think there is a strong possibility that by the Finish date I can be back into my size 8’s. That’s my goal and I’m committed to see it thru.
