Yup, it’s a project now. I picked up about 8 pounds over the holidays. Now, one or two of those are probably related to water weight, but there are some real fat pounds involved. So, Project Scale Down is to return to my ideal weight of 118-120 pounds (I’m 5’1″ with a medium frame) by the end of January and the end of the Hairscapades GOC.
For the next 28 days, I will do at least 10 minutes of exercise each day. I was inspired by Chy’sCurlz, who is doing the Sparkpeople.com 28 Day Bootcamp. I’m not going to join that as I know what exercise routines/schedule works for me. So, I will be training with kettlebells, treadmill and the Brazil Butt Lift (BBL) DVD series. I will also be tuning into The Biggest Loser again as the newest season is starting right now! I don’t think that you can watch that show every week and sit on the couch doing nothing! It helped keep me motivated when I lost 25 pounds last year.
I will also post a brief work-out update after I complete my scheduled exercise plan each day. This will help motivate me (I hate failing) and keep me accountable because I know at least one person is watching ;).
- 10 minute Abs of Steel routine (Tamilee Webb from the 90s, I SWEAR by it), a.m. √
- 28 minute, low to medium intensity Cardio Axe/BBL routine, p.m. (Gotta ease my way back into this ;).) √
In case you’re interested, here’s a little snippet of Cardio Axe that I found on YouTube.
I’ll be posting a review of BBL soon!
So yeah, that’s my story, and I’m sticking with it!
