I have decided to follow The Spark 28 Day Plan in combination with Coach Nicole's 28 day Bootcamp, because... well frankly it just makes sense. I am going to read the first 5 chapters in the book and watch the DVD today (4/7/2012), so I can jump into my workout/ plan tomorrow.
After moving across state to "start over" and "be anywhere but here" (here, being my hometown) I'm feeling a bit out of my element. Do not mistake me here, mind you, as moving has been hands down the most healthy decision I've made in years. It was a spur of the moment "Yeah, I'm so out of here" non-plan in that I didn't even bother to secure a job before moving. I have a job now and everything has fallen into place more or less. I know enough people in the area that I'm not desperate for face to face interaction. Things are good. Better than they've been in a long time, in fact.
I want to take this opportunity to completely transform my life. I want to lose weight and tone up and take better care of myself as a whole. Typically, when I begin a workout regimen or track calories... I do it how I want. I get results and they tend to last, however the past couple of years I had zero motivation or "give a crap" factor. I think most people have been to that place at some point in their lives. I want to start caring again about what I put in my body and how often I can go outside to bike on the local trail.
In other words I want to give myself "me" time. I know loads of information about diet and weight loss, as I think most people do. I want to implement the tools that have been collecting dust in the back of my brain closet. That is why I've decided to start a 28 day Jump Start program and if all goes well I can really challenge myself next month after the groundwork has been laid.
I'll be posting weekly about my progress and if anyone else is doing this program or happens across this blog or my program feel free to get in touch, because outside of informing my roommate of my new diet I will be going it alone in the non-internet world.
The weather was gorgeous today in my neck of the woods. I hope you were able to get out and enjoy it. I know I did.
