While I am obviously a huge fan of the Summer, I must say that I am pretty happy to see it go. I certainly lived it up over the last four months and it’s time to get back to reality. With tight pants comes a wake up call, which is why I decided to sign up to participate in a 6-week challenge that my gym is hosting. It’s a ladies only ‘Little Black Dress Challenge‘ and I’m more than ready to get started.
I don’t regret any of the decisions I’ve made over the last few months. I mean… I had a freaking blast!! I just am uncomfortable with the weight that came with it and I’m ready to get back to where I feel good and confident again!
Today, I went to stock up on everything that’s needed for the meal plan. Everything you’d assume – plenty of produce, eggs, lean meat, and fish.
I did some meal prep and also made my workout schedule for the week. I will be going to Renegade three times a week and the using the fitness area at work or the regular gym, as well. I tried out some morning workouts last week and think they’ll be happening more frequently. With school occupying so much of my time in the evenings, this is a good resolution.
Week 1 Workouts:
Monday – Body Works
Tuesday – Renegade; Metabolic
Wednesday – Renegade; Strength
Thursday – Lower Body Lift + Cardio
Friday – Renegade; Strength
Saturday – Spin
Sunday – Walk
I’m looking forward to getting my body back!! We weighed in today and it was certainly an eye opener (I’ve gained 12 pounds over the last year). I’m excited to use the blog as my accountability through this and updating it as I go through this journey.
Day 1 and 2 are detox days and the food is minimal. I have a work lunch with pre-selected food, so I plan to just go and not eat until I get back to the office, where I’ll enjoy my veggie filled salad. This morning was a green smoothie that I threw together as I was running out the door.
I’m going to a weight lifting class tonight that isn’t until 7:00pm. I’m hoping to keep my energy high enough to get to that point. I imagine I’ll go to bed shortly after I get home, especially since Tuesday morning brings 5:45am workout.
I hope you’ll come back and check in and enjoy this ride with me. Perhaps you had a pretty carefree Summer, too and need to get back in the groove. JOIN ME!! I’ll check back in mid-week to let you know how it’s going.
6 weeks is nothing…. right?!
