So for those of you who followed melast year...are you skinnier? I'm not! Not that I didn't try. I worked out all year 3 to 4 times a week, ate healthy, and still didn't see much improvement. I did loose several inches around my waist, but I kind cheated. I won't go into detail, but I will tell you that it involved a laser. Kind of stupid, but hey - it worked.
If you remember from last year I was working out at home with a huge stock pile of DVD's that I still love and will always keep in my possession, but this year I am doing it different. I also tried to follow a workout and food plan that my SIL Kassi laid out for me, but I was really and truly very bad and that. This time I am going to do better and I finally decided to follow her advice to join a gym. DUH! Best thing I have ever done!!! It's making a huge difference and I am starting to notice some big changes. Working out at home was definitely not a waist because it gave me the endurance and strength I needed to jump right into the gym classes. Most of my DVD's like Turbo Jam and Zumba helped me learn the same moves they use in the classes and saved me from looking like a total doofus the first few weeks. So if you're still working out on your own at home that's great and you have got to keep going, but I have to say that NOTHING is as motivating as MOE the turbo kick queen at the gym. Holy smokes! I'm sure you have a Moe at your gym too, so get there as soon as you can. Besides that, I have a group of friends that I meet there every day that makes working out a blast! We send out emails the night before encouraging each other to go and on Friday's we reward ourselves with a killer pilates class and healthy lunch afterwards. I absolutely love it! Who knew I could become addicted to working out? If you do it right, you can too!
So here is the new plan. Kill The Fat is back and this time it really is going to DIE! If you want to join me in an aggressive attack on those stubborn lumps and bumps then I welcome you! I want to hear your comments and success stories. I'll share mine with you too, along with workout playlists, workout schedules that I'm following, my favorite classes at the gym, my favorite home DVD's, my favorite HEALTHY foods and recipes, and whatever else I can think of to help us get fit. I'll talk about eating organic verses not eating organic, share scary food stories that I come across to freak you out and get you eating organic as much as possible (even if it costs more, you'll find that it is worth it). Or I'll at least get you checking the ingredients on the food you buy to make sure they don't have things like bleach, high fructose corn syrup, cotton seed oil, and modified starches in them. I mean, when I put it that way doesn't it sound like a recipe for fat?
If you have a hard time eating everything healthy (like me), and you don't like things like liver, fish, and bovine (like me), and you do like sweet treats and diet coke (like me) then I'll give you a list healthy whole food supplements to help you keep your body young and energized, despite the crap you love to eat. To loose weight and get healthy you will have to cut down, but you won't have to go without.
Sound reasonable? Good - then we're starting now! Check in weekly for new posts and start Killing Your Fat. Join my followers (on the right side bar) to stay in touch.
