I was so excited to post today and share my progress.
I got on the scale this morning and have lost a solid two pounds.
This means that what I have preached for years and years actually works!
Two pounds may not seem like much, but remember: as you get closer to your goal weight, the remaining pounds decide to be stubborn. Needless to say, I am very pleased with my results. These intense and quick workouts and nutritional goals are paying off!
I didn't miss a work out, I reduced my caloric intake, made healthy choices, and went to bed hungry. There were days that I didn't have time in the morning to work out, and never found the time until after the kids were in bed. But I stuck to my plan no matter what. It was hard work and I had to be self-motivated. Losing the extra fat had to be more important than a moment of weakness.
I have four weeks to lose three pounds of fat. Let's see if I can continue on this winning streak.
Week Three workouts are sure to kick my butt. And I like that.
But do you want to know what is the hardest? My diet. And this of course is what I have been telling my clients for years. It's easier to complete a workout then to change dietary habits.
[for elbow/hand push-ups: start in plank position, down on elbows, then back up onto hands in plank. Alternate right arm then left.]
[double crunches: don't let legs touch the ground, push abs into ground as to not strain back]
[oblique planks: 20 on each side]
[repeat 10 times]
plank jacks found in week 2:
reverse crunches found in week 1:
It's never too late to join me! Give it a whirl and see if you to can begin your winning streak.
