In the spirit of the new year, many folks out there have decided it was time to start moving again and to get healthy. I hear everyone on that! My fitness routine and healthy eating had been amazing starting in early October, but I must admit the holiday season really did a number on me. Truly, chocolate and wine are my downfall! I don’t think a there was a SINGLE day over the holidays….and possibly the last few weeks before the holidays where I didn’t indulge in one or both of my cravings! (So BAD!)
Oh well, it’s over now and the reality of being back at work and not having an abundance of goodies at the office has sunk in (thank goodness!) I let myself off last week by not getting straight back into my routine, however today is day 1 of me getting back to it. It really does help that I have the support of others and my girlfriend and I are going to take full advantage of my home gym until boot camp starts back up!
Tonight we are going to jump right into my Insanity DVDs, which I was avidly doing last year. I felt they would be a perfect way to get us right back into the swing of things. If you haven’t heard of Insanity of P90X look it up, they are some pretty intense home workouts. I love them because I enjoy having someone else leading my workouts and knowing that I will be with a friend twice a week, is all the motivation I need!
Here’s to a healthy 2013! Day 1 bring it on!
Until next time day dreamers!

And so the 90 days begin. Last week I began my 90 day fitness challenge with Ultimate Body Boot Camp. Week number 1 begins with a carb cleanse! I am not too sure if I was mentally ready for it, but I got through it and I am pretty sure I kicked butt.
There were no classes last week, just an intensely low carb diet, along with the banishment of alcohol (totally could have used some wine on Friday!!!). The light at the end of the tunnel? After a 30-40 minutes full body home workout on Sunday I was allowed to “carb load”. YUM! So D and I made a fantastic (but still healthy dinner) of scallops and shrimp over quinoa and a side of asparagus. It was pretty darn good, but want to know the best part?! We were even allowed to have dessert. So that I wouldn’t over do it I bought myself a single serving mini cheese cake, topped with one fabulous strawberry! THE BEST!
Workouts begin next week and I am totally pumped. I dropped 6 pounds last week and 8 in totally (since I began my fitness kick). I am feeling great and I am motivated to keep it going!!! I will be sure to update you on how it feels to do 90 minute boot camp classes and my weight loss progress!
If you are interested in doing a boot camp, I am loving Ultimate Body Boot Camp and you can check them out HERE!
Until next time day dreamers!

Oh boy, here we go again. I just finished day one of my boot camp. OH boy, my legs and butt are already hurting so I can only imagine what tomorrow will be like! I really needed a big kick-start! After a great workout I had a healthy dinner and I am ready to get fit!!
September was one of those months where the thought of getting to the gym was way too much. Stress from work and life has never been good for my healthy eating habits, so I was thrilled to start boot camp. I am lucky enough that my girlfriend agreed to go with me, she might be regretting it after today, but I am hoping at the end she will forgive me!! Moving is the greatest thing to improve your mood and that is definitely telling right now! Normally at 10:00pm I can barely get myself ready for bed!
I will be sure to post about my progress later. For now, I am feeling great!…my legs are killing, I can barely walk, but I am peppy and ready to get heathy!
