I suppose technically it is May 2nd today, but what counts is the day I wrote this and that is the first.
About 5 weeks ago I started a new workout routine, at lunchtime at work. 1 hour of Barre 2-3 times a week, healthier eating and meal plans. It worked. I got off my butt and moved more. The planned lunches and dinners were great not just for avoiding the stress of meal-times, but also for keeping me in check with what I was consuming. But I feel I need more.
I didn’t weigh myself, or take any measurements, and I don’t think I really lost any weight doing what I did so this month I’m upping the anti a bit more and really tightening both the workout and the meals and challenging myself to 31 days of good healthy eating and daily workouts, with a rest day on Sundays.
On the food side, I’m cutting sugar completely. Yep, I want to cry just writing this. But it has to be done. No sugar, that means wine too…no wine (gulp).
On the workout side, I downloaded the Kayla Itsines SWEAT app on my iphone, and plan to commit to 31 days of her ass-kicking workouts. They’re only 28minute-ish in duration but apparently they’re incredibly hard to do. There are 3-4 of her workouts a week mixed in with LISS workouts, which is fancy speak for cardio…I love this part since I can start mixing in my own cardio loves like running and spinning or just even walking the dog!
So that’s it, I’m going to do this. 31 days. I may die in the end but I’m going to do it. Lets see what happens. Oh and I’ll likely tag some of my posts with #anas31
