This week I am following Beachbody's Chalene Johnson's 5 Day Inferno Plan. I follow Chalene on Facebook and Instagram, she's one of the best weight loss & fitness motivators around. Sometimes I tag her on IG (Instagram) and this one time she liked one of my pictures. Claim to fame, what's up holler!
Anywho, Sabrina, my sole sista and party pal, loves her some Turbo Fire. Last week, Sabrinia, Kate, and I threw in Turbo fire routines just for fun! Sabrina recommended the Turbo Fire Inferno Plan to me as we all know I'm busting my buns trying to shed two pounds and hit goal weight. I JUMPED at the opportunity. I'm on day 2 presently, it's a five day plan which is extremely manageable for anyone.
The diet is strict, but has lots of variety. A variety of proteins are used at all meal times, bread, cheese, and light sour cream (GASP) are on the program. No meal is repeated twice. This is helping me to add back in cheese and bread post lent, I was crazy enough to give both up, without going overboard. I didn't talk much about giving up bread and cheese on the blog, I thought it would feel like a much larger penance than it did in actuality. Surprisingly, both were easy to avoid! Mind over matter I suppose. Here's a look at a few of yesterday's eat from the Inferno Plan Day 1:
|Egg & Turkey Bacon Sandwich|
|Banana & Walnuts|
In other Challenge News, I'm two work outs into Jillian Michael's 6 Week Six Pack Level Two of week three. I much prefer the Level Two routine over Level One. Level One has more static core work while level two includes high impact cardio activity, mainly plyometrics. As a runner, I am a cardio-aholic so this is more enjoyable for me. I can not wait to share these results! My favorite phrase from Jillian, "You may feel like you're going to die right now, but what you're gonna do is look ridiculous" yeahhhh buddy! I love Jillian.
Combining different challenge programs and setting short term attainable goals for myself is key to staying motivated This helps me to stay focused with the finish line in sight. How do you stay motivated?
Getting dressed for a new season is so fun! I'm a wanna be fashionista. That's no secret. #OOTD (Out fit of the day). Putting my closet to work! Everything is super old except for my new pink top from Charly and Company.
