I'm so done with weekends like this! Everything would've been perfect except for all the excess food I had! IT WAS CRAZY! It's like I lost all control! I have to be extremely careful with weekends from now on because it's so tempting to think that weekends 'just don't count' - at least subconsciously. Anyway, I had enough of this today. I read an article about the SparkPeople Bootcamp (I saved it on my favorites so you can find it there if you want to read it too) and I'm definitely going to do it! I need to jump start my weight loss and this is a healthy and beneficial way to do that (not just some fad diet but a real lifestyle change!).
The idea is to increase your workouts to a pretty intense level. For five days a week, I'll do at least an hour of intense cardio training five times a week (if not more) and do 20 minutes of strength training every day. There are seven different strength training workout videos that all last 10 minutes - I'll go through the workout twice to get to 20 minutes per day. I'll follow this 7-Day Bootcamp Workout Plan for a month for the best results. My birthday is coming up in a month (May 19th) so my goal is to look and feel great (and, of course, to lose as much weight as I can) before I turn 21. I'll also make sure I stay within my calorie limits and nutritional and other goals every single day. No more of weekends like this! I want to get started with this weight loss for real already!
I'm hoping to get down to 143 pounds by my birthday. I know I can do it! And I know it'll be healthy and safe and the weight will STAY OFF. I'm so excited about this. Today was the first day of my bootcamp and I walked really briskly for an hour and 15 minutes so I'm feeling really good right now! I had no strength training scheduled for today but I get started with that tomorrow.
Hopefully, doing this bootcamp will help me get a body like Beyoncé's! Isn't she just PERFECT?
BYE FOR NOW! Hope you're all having a great day!
