So I haven't messed up on our “Back 2 Fabulous” plan – YET! But it’s been literally less than 24 hours. But I'm setting goals and slaying obstacles.
Small Change #1: Work out
STATUS: underway (okay this my be a BIG change in lifestyle but a small change to my daily routine - 30 minutes! I CAN do this!)
My beginer work out:
30 mins eliptical (3-5 resistance and burning about 200 calories)
(it’s not pretty but it’s real)
Small Change #2….Drink LOTS of water.
We want to be floating up to our eye balls in water to shed pounds.
There is a great article about WATER from the fabulous Jillian Michaels here: http://www.jillianmichaels.com/meet-jillian/how-much-water.aspx#
To sum it up...we (women) need 88 ounces of water a day. More if you’re workin’ out and more it it’s hot outside. Looks like we are aiming for 100+ ounces of replenishing H20 per day! I'm keeping a 24 ounce cup with straw by my desk or with me at all times. A failure to plan is a plan to fail, right? So I'm downing 2 before noon and 2 before 4pm and one with my work out tonight. Keepin' a good pace. Wish me luck!
We are also keeping a board of inspiration, recipies, work out tips and links to articles related to our "Back 2 Fabulous" journey here:
