I have found my Motivation again...a new Program...and I am loving it!!!

Saturday, May 04, 2013

I have been on 'Cruise Control' for a few months now.....going through the motions...exercise wise..... and getting way too familiar with staying on a Plateau...weight wise emoticon

It has not been any Fun...and i have been very frustrated.....tried just about everything....just to watch the scale moving up emoticon instead of emoticon

I belong to a BLC (Biggest Loser Challenge) Team and we are in between challenges.....last week our Captain posted a 'Dare' and a Link to the Jamie Eason 12 week program...i checked it out....and i am now officially hooked emoticon emoticon

I just finished Week 1 and i am sOooo sore...but it is a 'good soreness' emoticon I can tell that i haven't been working out the way i should...because i am feeling muscles i didn't know i had....

I used to weight lift in the gym...long..long time ago...always enjoyed it but back then there wasn't too much info out there for no internet.....i liked weights back then but was always afraid to 'bulk up' also didn't help that i was 'all over' and never really had a good program to i stopped......

I will continue with Week 2 starting on Monday...since i am supposed to take 3 days of rest.....
The program also calls for 'No Cardio' the first month..... emoticon
Now as much as i dislike Cardio...this one will be almost impossible for me to do..... so today i went ahead and did nothing but Cardio!

More good news: I have been 3 weeks Energy drink FREE emoticon ...very proud of that.....
Not sure if there is a link between 'No energy drinks and craving sweets'......but my cravings for 'Sweets' have gone down in a drastic way!! Loving that too!!

I am excited about all this...... i am celebrating emoticon

    I'm in the same boat and you've just inspired me. You can do and I'm going to try. No, I'm going to.

YES! THIS!! I KNOW there is a link between the two!!
I am SO proud of you for giving up the energy drinks.
I really think you will not need them with all the muscle you are building doing the Jamie Eason program.....women cant 'bulk' up.....but the wonderful thing about muscles?? They burn fat!!
You are no longer on cruise control girlfriend.....
you are kicking butt and taking names!!

    Woo Hoo Taty, way to go. So glad you saw for yourself what wasn't happening and accepted the challenge. Challenge is the only way to grow/change and we've gotta challenge ourselves.

Gratz on on energy drinks for 3 wks, and heres to a 4th week free of them.

    I am so happy for and proud of you! emoticon

Reading that you are doing cardio along with this makes me maybe think I might have to check this out as well..................although I'm one of those who has never been an "ST Lover"! I'm thinking that I *need* the ST more now, however, than I did when I was younger.............gotta keep these bones moving............ and healthy muscle = healthier support for the bones.................

    I think I am finally coming out of the funk that has possessed me since the beginning of the year. I am going to have to check this out. But your enthusiasm is infectious, and it is great to see! emoticon

    I love reading the excitement in your blog. I just found out that our gym is going to remain open for now. So I think I might join you in the Jamie Eason program. I really need to kick up the ST. I will put together a plan and join you in the sore muscle club!

    So cool to find a program which makes you feel good about being sore! Four weeks down the road you are going to notice the new toning of your body! I'm excited to be on a team with you and Jamie's program too. emoticon
