Turbo Jam has a 10 day 10 pound slim down challenge I guess you can say. I've been doing turbo jam, but I haven't been giving my all...lol. So, with starting today, I'm going to push myself for the next ten days doing my own Turbo Jam challenge. I'm also going to do my own food, but I'm going to follow Sparkpeople's recommended nutrition range for myself.
Recently, I went home (to Kentucky) for family reunion and was there for almost a week and gained almost half the weight back that I've recently lost...
. On top of that I feel like I need to motivate myself into working out and I thought if I give myself my own little mini challenge, then I'll jump start my way back into a healthier lifestyle. So, I'm going to measure myself Day 1, Day 5 and Day 10. Hopefully, I can keep away from the scale in between those days...lol.
Day 1 Measurements:
Right Mid-Thigh: 31
Left Mid -Thigh: 30.5
Right Upper Arm: 17
Left upper Arm: 16
My 10 Day Turbo Jam Challenge:
Day 1: Cardio Party
Day 2: Cardio Party
Day 3: Turbo Sculpt and Ab Jam
Day 4: Cardio Party and 20 Minute Jam
Day 5: Cardio Party
Day 6: Turbo Sculpt and Ab Jam
Day 7: Cardio Party and 20 Minute Jam
Day 8: Cardio Party
Day 9: Turbo Sculpt and Ab Jam
Day 10: Cardio Party and 20 Minute Jam
I designed this workout based on my work and sleep schedule. I work night shift and lately I've been so tired that I crash as soon as I get home. When I wake up that's when I have the most energy so that's when I workout. Hopefully, this will change I rather workout right after work. Of course, I'll track my nutrition. I'm finally getting the hang of actually eating enough calories. I'm not worried about my carb intake verses my sodium, protein and fiber intake. Watching my sodium intake sucks...lol. Now the first thing I look at when reading labels is the sodium intake and if it's over a certain amount, I automatically put it back (even if everything else is pretty good). I'm on the edge of having high blood pressure and I refuse to be 30 and taking hypertension medication (I think that's another blog...lol). I'm trying to find ways to increase my protein intake without protein powders (only because I can not stand the taste). If it taste bad, I can not and will not do it. Someone mentioned a soy protein powders taste better than whey, so I'll look into that soon.
I know I'll have a good outcome with this, it's just keeping the motivation and seeing the light at the end of a long tunnel is the main challenge. I have a date with the girls during this challenge and going to see the incredibly funny man Kevin Hart during this challenge. Any other time, I consider those free days... but I have to keep my eyes on the prize. It's only 10 days right?????? Fingers cross!!!!!
