So like most people I have decided to start 2015 with getting fit. I came across this page
called fit girls and decided to give it a whirl. Now the premise of this is to give you an eating plan along with at home excises that you can do. I am taking the 28 day challenge (check out the photos on IG with #28daychallenge to see what’s happening) and so far I like what I see. With anything, please check with a doctor first! So after purchasing the eBook I was given 4 weeks of meals and workouts coupled with instructions and motivation techniques. The eBook also provided game plans and easy prep steps. Not going to lie, I started a day after as I failed to plan doing the meal prep but I’m digging it. Also there are rewards you earn for completing each week! And they encourage the consumption of CHOCOLATE!
Now I wont barrage you with photos of me in my before stages, but needless to say personally I feel that I have put on some extra layers and want to get more toned. The meal plan give you 3 meals and a snack, but because I know that I have to eat every 3 hours I plan on breaking out my lunch into smaller portions. You are given a total of 1400 calories, and before you whine that’s not enough it is. As Americans we don’t take the time to chew or drink lots of water. So if you feel that this isn’t enough check this out, the next time you plan on eating drink a glass of water and wait 20 minutes. Hungry? Ok now eat, but count to 20 to make sure that your food is properly masticated. Reason behind bloating and indigestion? Not chewing properly to prep the food for digestion….. The meals are tasty and filling and they even give you ideas to mix it up so its different. Also the eating plan calls for oatmeal, and that for me es no bueno so I switched it to Quinoa and yes it mean some more prep but worth it. So check out my posts on IG for the food at @bkblueagave to see what is in these meals.
The program also encourages you to get at least 30 minutes of activity EACH day…now here’s where I’m cheating. I have to take PE for school (yes to get my AAS I have to complete 2 credits..) so that class meets each day for the duration of this challenge.
Overall, I am looking forward to this and hoping that I can shed some weight and get toned. I know that I will never be the size I was in high school, but am hoping that this helps me develop better eating habits to use the rest of my life. Its a challenge to change your habits, but stick with it and find others to keep you motivated and you might just surprise yourself. If your doing this find me on IG and leave me some motivation and I’ll return the favor!
