5% Winter Challenge: Diet and Exercise Plan Update

Friday, January 24, 2014

I feel that I should log in here my slight change to my diet and exercise plan for the 5% Challenge. It's pretty similar to what I blogged before, however I now have an actually plan in place. I recently signed up for a 30-Day Burn program offered by one of my favorite health and fitness guru's, Dr. Josh Axe. He advocates following a clean, wholesome, organic diet while limiting/eliminating sugars and utilizing Burst Training (his version of HIIT- High Intensity Interval Training or Tabatta Training) as an exercise program. The 30-Day Burn that I joined is giving me 4 weeks of meals plans as well as manual for turning on our fat burning switch. Plus a private FB group for support and questions. Anyway, I just started the program on Sunday and have been doing really well with my eating as well as doing the Burst Training. I love Burst as it is 20 minutes of burst of high intensity exercises. You do a set of exercises for 45 seconds, 30 second rest and then another set for 45 and so on. There are about 6 different exercises targeting a certain area of the body that you repeat 3 times giving you a 20 minute workout. Each workout targets a different area and you incorporate muscle building with cardio. I really enjoy the workouts and the time I spend is great for this busy, working mom. He also has a great warm-up and cool-down that I utilize and I can add in 10 minute strength training SP videos as well.

Anyway, I wanted to do this update for this challenge. I can already attest to seeing big changes in my first week and am anxious and excited for tomorrows weigh-in.
