Happy Tuesday Everyone!
I just wanted to write about something quick that I am really excited about!
We all have times that we are super motivated to work out and get fit and then other times when we are straight lazy and just want a burger.
Well, I found myself yo-yo-ing all the time because I would get sick of the current workouts I was doing and would go on extreme diet and it would get to be too much.
I lost weight, but I would just gain it back after I let myself fall off again.
So this time, I decided to take a different approach.
Instead of going for a super intense workout ( I was doing insanity before), I decided to do something hard, but not AS hard.
I went with Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred.
I honestly went in with no expectations but to get a workout in each day to start living a healthier lifestyle. Another thing I did differently this time is I decided not to put myself on a strict diet. I want to focus on moderation. So- if I really feel like ice cream after dinner- then I put in in a small side dish instead of an actual bowl. I was putting in a 1/3 of what I was in the bowl. That in itself amazed me at how big my eyes were compared to my stomach because after eating less that the serving size of ice cream, I was satisfied. So that is my new focus- moderation. If I feel like eating something, I will. I will just do it in small portions.
Well I lost an inch around my waist.... in the first week! Definitely wasn't expecting that. I have felt a lot more energy and less bloated but I try to avoid the scale because it seriously begins to haunt me! But seeing even that little bit of weight loss gives me motivation to keep going.
I am almost done with my second week now and then will be moving on to the next level of 30 Day Shred-- my friends say I am going to feel like dying. But that's okay, I have Julian to push me :) I am going to post this update every Tuesday to help keep myself accountable. I am counting on you guys to help me! :) :)
Have a good Tuesday!
