I am trying to lose some weight. Shocking, right? The last few years have added about ten pounds to my frame (and plenty of gray hairs to my head) and the weight is not melting off like it used to previously. We are already eating much healthier (gluten-free, plenty of vegetables and whole foods) but I need to start watching calories (hard to do when you love to bake) and exercising more.
Laura of Pretty Presets introduced me to her friend Jamie, who has a workout/healthy eating website that sounded interesting, and I wanted to learn more about her programs. She sent me all of the info and I had a chance to go over it and it sounds like something I could do.
I took a break during Christmas, but now I want to lose my "muffin-top" and get toned. I am starting the Jump Start plan next week. It is a cleanse program that should help me lose some initial weight (and hopefully reduce my chocolate/coffee craving). Sounds right up my alley. I have a tendency to cheat on these things, so to keep myself honest I will let you know when I start the program, finish the program, and if I feel/look any better. If I can get results, anyone can get results. :-) I am thinking of asking my Mom to do it with me.
Once I get through that I hope to start one of the toning plans. But I can't get ahead of myself and need to take this one day at a time. If I continue as I have, I will weight almost 300 pounds by the time I am 80!!! ;-)
I will let you guys know when I start. It would be cool if some of you would do it with me. If you think you would be interested, leave a comment!
So now, I would like to introduce you to Jamie of WorkoutPlanz!
Sally has 4 kids, runs a business, volunteers at the schools and at her church, is on a committee for helping kids in need, she's the family taxi driver, event planner, nurse, teacher, cook, and household manager. Sally has a goal of losing 10-20 pounds. Now, just how is Sally going to accomplish THAT in midst of her crazy life?
Sally is not anyone I know, but she's every mom I know. In one way or another, having a family, being a business owner, being a multi-tasking relational woman makes us busy! If Sally, or you, or I don't intentionally make things happen, then unintentionally, time will fly by without us and we'll never get around to the things we really wanted to do.
I’m a mama of 3 little boys and a wife to a bubble boy, a forever optimist, my biggest fan. I am also a personal trainer, group fitness instructor, and group fitness director at a club in my hometown. Fitness was a hobby and then a career when I found out that I could have a job that is centered around encouraging others like you! I found that fitness was an in-road to people’s lives and hearts. I look forward to working with you. You can visit our website here and follow us on facebook here.
