What am I talking about?
Well, I like to refer to my weight loss as an exorcism. It all started earlier this year when I joined a 100 day challenge through my job. My challenge was to lose 10 pounds, and 100 days later, I accomplished it. I was focused and I was fierce. I was counting calories, and exercising 5 days a week. I even started running.
Well, it has been three weeks since I have done any form of exercise, and you can ask the chocolate cake in my fridge how my diet has been. Can you say fast food?
I have probably gained about 2-3 pounds back, and my abs are not quite as toned as before.
All this makes me sad. It makes me sad that something like moving, discouraged me from keeping focused.
I am done with the fast food, I am done with all the bread, and I am done with all the junk. I want to lose 10 more pounds, and cutting calories is how I am going to do it.
That, and a little thing called exercise.
This weekend, it will be in the triple digits, which means it will be hotter than hell. I have got to figure out a way to get some exercise in, while not melting.
Pinterest was my answer.
This is an ab workout that I actually enjoyed. I started out with no weights, than gradually increased the weight to five pounds.
This is a great leg workout. I do one set in the morning, one at lunch, and one at dinner.
The picture above is linked to a great running program that I really like. Interval training is a great way to burn fat. Problem, running in the heat is no bueno.
For the days it is too hot to be outside, I will stick with my old standby. Walking videos with Leslie Sansone. I love this woman. I saw more changes in my body with her videos than anything.
This is my plan for the next few weeks.
Let’s see where it will go.
Have a great weekend!
