Since the whole world has seen my baby jelly belly in my motherhood post, I may as well document the “get hot before I turn 30″ challenge I have decided to do! I was going to start this at the beginning of February, but due to being very sick for the fourth time since giving birth (what the heck?), and a pinched nerve in my neck, I had to put it off until I recovered. Luckily, I’m turning the big 3-0 in May, so I have a new fun name for my challenge! Here’s the details:
I intend to do this 30 day ab challenge, paired with 20 mins of intense cardio on the eliptical. After this 30 day challenge, I will move on to a more intense 60 day challenge. I’m not 100% which 60 day challenge I’m going to do yet- Insanity, P90X, or the Jillian Michael’s Shred. I’m leaning towards Insanity, but we’ll see. I’m also up for suggestions and/or opinions for those who have done one of these. I did p90X once for a week, but was also working like a crazy person at the time. and it was just too much. I have no excuse now. Darn it.
As for nutrition, because we all know that’s pretty much the most important part, I’ll be doing Weight Watchers Online. I’ve been doing it for a week now, and I’m digging it. My plan accounts for the fact that I’m nursing, so it’s great. I have found it to be very user friendly, and doable!
I’ll be posting an update every Wednesday. I’ll share some of the recipes I enjoyed from the past week, and when I feel like there’s a noticeable difference from the that pic I took, I’ll post another pic.
If anyone else out there wants to join in on this 30 challenge, and/or the 60 day challenge, that’s awesome! I’ll just need a before and after shot of you, and maybe a few guest posts along the way to share great healthy recipes, or just talk about the struggle.
For those of you who are trainers and friends out there, this is pre-tired Courtney talking: Don’t let me quit! I may need to be reminded from time to time that I can do it, and it’s only for 3 months. I have quite a terrible track record of sticking to things like this. I’m feeling pretty motivated this time, though! I CAN DO IT!
