Well, I would first like to apologize my lack of upkeep on this site. I have 2 additional sites that i have been trying to get up an running, but with 3 blogs, I have zero that i have kept up to date. It makes me sad and mad at myself as lots of exciting things have been going on lately. Oh well.
As I tell the kids, today is a new day.
Near the first of the year, I embarked on a weight loss fitness/improve my fitness journey. With the help of my amazing trainer, Geri. I was able to shed something like 35″ over all in 12 weeks. I went from walking 30 minutes a day to doing hard interval circuits. I am stronger and more fit then what i have been in years. Sadly, my training sessions with Geri has expired and now I am left on my own. OH NOOOOOO!!!
With boat and bathing suit season being just around the corner, I am looking at getting in shape to where I actually want to wear a bathing suit and not something that looks like a Birka. Enter the Insanity workout.
If you have watched any late night TV, you have seen Shaun T and his crew pitching his workout program. I have to say I was a little scared about trying this, but after watching a portion of the workout on YouTube, I know I can do this. I am also dragging Paul along in this journey and he’s
eagerly coming along for the ride.
Being he is a runner, this interval training is a lot different then the repetitive workouts he has been doing. I hope my knee holds up with all the jumping I am thinking are ahead. I am also adopting the eating plan that came with the program. According to the equation for daily calorie burn, i have been eating any where from 800 to 1000 less then I should for optimal weight loss. This morning I choked down a bowl of oatmeal with protein powder, fruit and walnuts. Gag!! We’ll see if I see a difference eating more.
Another exciting event this week is that I will be getting my hair extensions!! I have for my whole life wanted long flowing hair. Unfortunately, I was morning with fine hair and its ability to grow to any thing other than thin and baby like is not possible. Can not wait!!
I think this week is going to be a good week!
