My BLC 22 / Summer Slim Down Plan

Sunday, May 05, 2013

Summer is just around the corner; even closer is the Biggest Loser Challenge (BLC 22) which is slated to begin on June 5th and will span most of the summer season. As we all know, summer means shorts, sleeveless tops, visits to the pool/beach and the much dreaded bathing suits … especially by those of us who are on the heavier side of the scale. On the other hand, as inferred by the title, the Biggest Loser Challenge offers us “big” people a great opportunity to lose the extra poundage and tone up those flabby areas which, often times, is one source of our summer time stress. Anyways, before I talk about my Summer Slim Down plan let me pause to say that I know that quick fixes doesn’t last … that’s not my “cup o’ tea.” I am in this for the long haul! Also, I have not lost a screw in my head … my mind is still intact so, I am not aiming to look like a Sport’s Illustrated swimsuit model, but rather to be healthier, more toned [from head to toe] and be more confident in my summer time wear. In order to get the result I am looking for, I plan to keep tweaking my current workout routines to target the "bathing suit muscles” … abs, sides, hips, and lower back in addition to the upper arms, butt, and thighs. In addition I will incorporate more high intensity interval cardio workouts and a cleaner healthier eating plan.
This is just a general synopsis of my Summer Slim Down Plan. I will write a detailed goals and action plan in a follow up blog.

emoticon I really loved your motivational photo with the sprout; it reminds me of what I have growing in my small greenhouse tray. Most of the red bell pepper seeds have sprouted just like that one! It looks like a tiny farm!

    I love your attitude. I also believe in doing this for the long haul and not too quickly and unrealistically. All I really want for the Summer is to get to a place with my body where I am fit enough not to have to wear Spanx when I wear skirts to avoid getting that awful heat rash between my thighs.
Not too much to ask, right? Let's get it done! One small success at a time!
