I am starting Jillian Michaels' body revolution this morning. She also includes a balanced diet that has focus on healthy fats and proteins. So I'm going to give it a whirl. Today we start with weight training for 30 minutes. The program covers 90 days. I may add some of my other cardio workouts to fill it out. Her workouts are only 30 minutes each. But, as my mother reminds me, I need to ease back into this. I had a terrible fall several weeks ago and my left hand is not entirely perfect yet. However my sprained ankle is completely healed now
For the last couple of days, I have been helping my friends move from one apartment to the next. I am really sore from moving boxes.
I am being good about watching what I eat. When we stop for food, I drink iced tea, unsweetened. And, I eat half the entrée not the whole thing.
My goals for the summer are to study for a professional exam in the fall and to lose weight. I am taking some time off from work to focus on my studies so that I will do well on my exam. And, I am staying focused on weight loss.
Sometimes, the only way out of the situation is to go through it. That applies to weight-loss too. I am finally done with my big projects. So now it is time to focus on myself. I have cleaned up my room. It's nearly impossible to work out without space to do it.
I have a bunch of new DVDs. And today I am trying Kathy Smith's flex appeal.
This is the last week of spring for us. We expect to see the low 90s by the end of next week.
My current diet plan is:
Number one: exercise for 30 minutes five days a week before breakfast.
Number two: eat at least one serving of vegetables with every meal
Number three: eat within my calorie range of 1200 to 1300 cal per day five days a week
Number four: meditate for at least 15 to 20 minutes every night before bed
