Welcome to the first posting for Fitness Fridays.
Every Friday will now have some thINSPIRATIONAL quotes, photos and what I did that week to work on my own health.
You may have already read this week's Monday Motivation post where I made mention of my upcoming fitness plan. I have started a program called AthLEAN XX. I used it 2 summers ago and while it kicks my but in less than 30 minutes each time I do love it.
Now I have taken a couple other "before" photos with slightly less cover up but you'll have to stayed tuned as those won't be posted until a mid-way update.
My first three days of AthLEAN XX worked three different target areas. The Glutes (that derriere), your amazing arms and of course...abs.
Now thanks to day 1 I had trouble walking, sitting, bending and dressing for 3 days after. Day 2 has allowed my to feel like my guns are water pistols and day 3 has me feeling today like a have bruised ribs. I liked day 4. It was a day of rest! But let's keep some perspective...
Today I walked 6 miles and I still have my shoulders to work out before the night is over.
Diet has not eluded me. I have been chowing down on my salads and managing my tea an coffee with little to now sugar. I choose water 9 out 10 times; couldn't tell you the last time I had a soda. Three out of four nights this week I had a Special K cereal. This wasn't even out of wanting to take in less calories but after working out I'm roasting! The last thing I was is a hot meal so cereal with cold milk is just the ticket!
I am also a HUGE believer in -
If you don't have "junk" as an option when you're home guess what! You don't have the option to eat it!
Practice keeping healthy food in your cabinets and fridge and give all your wonderful but damning comfort food away.
Now I use to love my chips/crisps- especially if sitting on my butt watching TV. But it was the crunch that I grew accustom to. I now love to get super fresh lettuce and curl up on my sofa and crunch crunch crunch away. Your brain doesn't know the difference and it helps get in your veggie servings!
