Day 4

This will be my 4th day since starting the healthy lifestyle routine, of which I only attended the gym 3 times. I missed one day because I had to meet the people from craigslist who were going to pick up the free stuff I had posted online. They were late by an hour. I got so frustrated I put the stuff outside and left. I mean the stuff is free? Shouldn’t you be early?¬†I could rant about Craigslist all day, but if truth be told, I have made a lot of money from Craigslist so one could say we have a symbiotic love-hate relationship.

Anyways.. back to the workout regime.. everything hurts.. AND I have actually gained 2 pounds?!? On the bright side, I already feel a lot healthier; Therefor, I will not concern myself with being too worried yet. Here is so far my favourite exercise I completed after 30 mins of level 6, speed 6.0, “random setting” on the treadmill. It worked out mostly my gluteus. I will admit tho, I felt like a dog lifting a leg to take a pee on a bush, and checked the gym to make sure I was secluded enough to not be gawked at.

Here are the instructions for the position:

Keeping your left leg bent, lift it to the side until it’s parallel with the mat. Next, bring your left leg forward and flex your foot to isolate your glutes. Hold and then repeat with your right leg. Continue reading

Weekly Workout Schedule

So recently… I have decided that I needed to finally start changing my lifestyle (this has nothing to do with a new years resolution… but rather looking back at some photos and going urghh). After doing some research, I decided that the Women’s Health Magazine¬†offered me the best workout regime because of their detailed week-by-week workout plans. (click here to see detailed daily workout plans)

Some things that I’ve concluded will affect my goal to lose weight and live healthier:

1. Myself, I am always my worst enemy.

2. Cravings

3. The IUD. I have heard a lot of women complain about gaining weight and being unable to lose weight while using the IUD. I have noticed quite a bit of bloating since the IUD was inserted a year and a half ago.. I am hoping to disprove that the bloating is IUD related and that a healthier lifestyle will reduce or rid of the bloating.

Some Personal Information About Me:

Gender: Female

Age: 22

Height: 5’7 or 5’8

Weight Week 1: 165

Goal Weight (To be re-assessed later): 145

Wish me Luck!
