Hey all!

So, as I may or may not have mentioned in previous posts, I LOVE Oxygen Fitness Magazine. I buy the mag often, and I have their website on my favorites list. Today, I was surfing their page when I came across a complete 90-day workout transformation. They completely provide a shopping list, meal plan, and workout plan for ALL 90 days!

This is awesome for me because I often struggle with my diet. This is completely set up for people like me who aren’t really sure where to start! I seriously recommend taking a look at the plan AND the site in general! I will be going shopping in a few days and then it will begin!! I’m so motivated and so excited to see changes in my body! Here’s the link to the plan: http://www.oxygenmag.com/fat-loss/your-90-day-best-body-challenge/

And here’s some motivational FITSPO!

Hey everyone!

So I made my shopping list based on the book I mentioned in my last post. I am going to go shopping bright and early tomorrow morning so that I can start the plan. Looking at the list, I have a feeling it’s going to cost a lot more than I anticipated, but I guess you will have that when you are eating more than once or twice a day, and it’s not McDonald’s. 

I’m feeling pretty excited about the whole thing right now. I saw myself in the mirror this morning and thought, “My God, have I really let myself go to this point?” I had been doing well back in October and I am really disappointed that I let myself gain all the weight I lost back.

I will be posting my food log and work out log tomorrow, along with some before pics so you can see what I am working with. I find it always motivates me when I can see someone’s before picture and watch them transform, so I think it will be beneficial to have one.

Anyway, here is some FITspo to hold us all over until tomorrow when the real fun begins!

Hey guys!

So since my last post I have really put together a better plan for weight loss and I know what I am going to do now.

I just bought a book called “The Eat Clean Diet Stripped” by Tosca Reno. If you don’t know her, Ms. Reno is a regular contributor to Oxygen, a fitness magazine I highly recommend. The book is excellent and has a total meal plan outlined in it, and some great recipes.

I will be following that, and then I may follow a different plan on the fifth week from FitnessRX (the book is a four week plan) and just alternate. 

I’ll also post the workouts I’ll be doing daily. I’m thinking I’m going to start it Monday, January 8, 2013 because that is my day off and I also need to go food shopping. 

Just wanted to give you guys an update. Full measurements and before pics on Monday!

Here’s some motivational FITspo (emphasis on Fit) to get me, and maybe even you, started.

So today was day three (it’s still Thursday despite the time on here, which I can’t figure out how to fix ol). No weight loss yet. 😦 Here’s my work out entry for today:

“I felt very groggy and sore when I woke up today. I didn’t much feel like working out, so I had to pace around my house until I was a little more motivated.

The ‘Shoulder & Arms’ DVD was not as bad as I had thought it was going to be.  I felt really motivated through the whole work out, although I only used a 4 lbs. weight. I hope to eventually get to a 10 lbs. weight.

The ‘Ab Ripper X’ DVD was BRUTAL! It was short, but there were no breaks at all and the exercises were very challenging. I struggled through most of it, which I was surprised by, because my abs used to be my strongest part. I look forward to the day when I can get through the whole DVD.

I am having my protein drink. However, I need to be more careful with my diet. I’m overeating and it’s all junk, so I’m only hurting myself.

Tomorrow is ‘Yoga X’, so it should be a good strength training day!”

So that’s my entry. I had pasta for dinner tonight, which isn’t great, but I’m trying really hard not to snack right now. Hopefully I’ll be able to keep it up. I work tomorrow, so I’ll be distracted! 😀

Here’s some Abs themed thinspo/fitspo to get you (and me) motivated for tomorrow’s work out, because I know I’ll be sore (especially in the abs)!!!!!!!!!!! I’m thinking Before/After thinspo/fitspo tomorrow!!!

Good luck and see you tomorrow!!!

Hello! I’m back…again. I’m blogging to tell you about P90x!!! I started it yesterday, and for the next 90 days I’m going to tell you about my challenges and triumphs while doing it.

So yesterday…I’m doing P90x Lean, so my first day was Core Synergistics. This is how it went…

“Today was not my best day. Not only did I have to pause the DVD 5 or 6 times, I couldn’t finish or couldn’t even do most of the work out. And after all of that, I don’t even feel like I did a work out for my abs. I hope in the next few weeks I can get through more of the DVD, because I’m pretty annoyed and frustrated right now. If I keep sucking like that, I’m NOT going to see results. Tomorrow is Cardio X, so hopefully that will be better (but somehow I’m thinking I might struggle more).”

So that’s that. I am sore today, though.  But today I am doing the Cardio X. I will post about that later on tonight. As far as my diet goes, I think that is going to be a bigger struggle. I LOVE carbs and I over eat like crazy. But I do have an app on my phone called “My Fitness Pal”, so I can keep track of my calories that way. Here is some motivating thinspo:

P.S. Be sure to check out my Fit Test results and measurements on the about page! And I will be posting before pics too!
