OK...so I thought I was going to wait until New Years but I decided that, that was a crutch. I just need to start now. I have been battling some sort of cold (sinus) thing so haven't been up to working out but I am starting to feel better. On Saturday, my trainer Tammye, is doing an Weekend Warrior Holiday Blitz. I figure it is a good time to start. Friday I am going to do my assessment; I am trying to convince Travis to do it with me.
Starting weight, before picture, measurements and a timed challenge. I am going to do 10 exercises each 100 times and time myself. After 30 days I am going to do it again and see if my results got faster. The plan that I am following is 5-6 workouts per week, 3 strength and 3 at home. My trainer has taught me so much and so many of the exercises we do are using only your body weight and don't require tons of equipment. Thankfully my little home gym is getting pretty equipped. I would like some TRX bands and maybe a sandbag for Christmas though. I am going to try and do 2 of my strength workouts at home. It also has days of cardio which I am dreading but if I am going to do the half marathon I need to get training now.
The diet that I am planning to follow is a 1400 calorie diet. It is pretty clean eating, reducing processed foods and starchy carbs. I have a grocery list that goes along with the plan, so I am going shopping tomorrow, and doing the assessment tomorrow. Starting Saturday.
