SUCCESS! Month 1 of the 3 month workout plan
Thursday, February 02, 2012
So I guess now I post the stats: here goes!
January 1: 169 lbs
February 2: 155.6 lbs
I still have quite a ways to go for a "healthy" BMI and size (for me, at least!) but I feel very confident in this workout plan! (Check my last blog entry for the link to the plan!!)
I'm still doing month #1 of the plan until next week, since I didn't start it until the second week in January.
I'm also running a few miles per week and doing 1 spin class (40 mins) per week.
I think the reason I'm still losing is it's all about variety when it comes to exercising, and all about boring when it comes to the diet. I either have a salad and chicken burger for lunch, then fish and veggies for dinner with quinoa or rice, OR a tuna sandwich for lunch and chicken and veggies for dinner with pasta or rice, VERY bland foods. But I make sure to get between 1200 and 1400 cals per day in!!
I like this "total body transformation" plan because it's fun - it's interesting - there are 5 or 6 different exercises you run through in a circuit so the 30 mins or so goes FAST! Plus, as I get older, I notice that I need to work harder to lose the lumpy fat (cellulite AAAAAGH) and also to tone the flab (hello, upper arms and belly anyone????)
anyway, I'm losing weight, feeling sexier LOL and just lighter and younger!
Stay tuned for more updates (maybe not until month #2, but we'll see!)
