I'm back on the fitness and healthy eating train again. This time, after umpteenth times, I plan on staying on for the ride of my life.
I prepared myself by doing one week of Phase 1 of the South Beach Diet and to my surprise actually stuck with it for the entire week. I definitely felt my body going through sugar withdrawal but I didn't have any carb cravings. Carbs are my weakness especially in the form of sweet delectable desserts and mac and cheese but I actually fought against temptation. It wasn't easy, try walking through the mall the smell of Cinnabon always seems to find you.
After my one week carb cleanse, I weighed in today had a 4lb weight loss and I started Phase 2 with adding healthy carbs to my diet and beginning a rotation of Turbo Jam Advance Rip You Up. I was looking forward to my workout which is proof to me that things will be different this time.
I have set the following health and fitness goals to keep me accountable:
Complete 2 months of TJ Advance Rip You Up rotation (5/13/12).
Complete a rotation of Chalean Extreme (8/5/12).
Complete a rotation of Turbo Fire (12/23/12).
Drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water a day.
Eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day.
Stay within my calorie range 1200-1550 a day.
