My New Me, Healthy Me

5 weeks ago I decided it's time. Once and for all I am going to get the remainder of my weight off since I had Prairie Princess. *It was 2 years ago*  I was struggling because the health of our food has declined in the last 6 mths to 12 mths when my husband had a huge job change and I had to purchase less healthy foods because I just can't afford the good stuff anymore.  And just couldn't get motivated. I've been able to stay the same weight for the last 2 years but just haven't been able to get it off. Thanks to my friend Coach Patti She was currently using the program as well as her dd and helped me find one for a great price. She has since become a Coach and I highly recommend her for any help you need at beach body.

So I am counting calories because I can't just eat healthy food. But the most important element is I am now working out faithfully 6 days a week. The first month I only did 5 days a week.

The biggest tool in my arsenal  is Chalean Extreme. 

There are several things I love about this plan. There are 16 different workouts on the plan.
The first month you do 3 days strength training and 2 days of cardio. Plus 1 day you do Stretching after you do your cardio and 1 day with Ab work.  Then the second month you do different strength training that will PUSH you to workout differently and harder. Then the third month another set of strength training. I LOVE that I am doing a totally different challenging workout 5 days a week. It is NOT boring. And when you get strong enough to take it to the next level. There is another level to acheive. I plan to do this workout for at least 6 months or more.

You can use free weights or bands as shown in this photo. The strength training is different than most. Usually your doing tons of reps but her you life the weight slowly and you actually get much more out of the workout with only 10 to 12 reps of each exercise. The cardio is intense! I am slowly getting stronger. Doing a little heavier weights using the resistance band for thigh workouts. 

Another tool in my weight-loss journey is Acct. I am currently in a group on Facebook. God's Temple Acct. If your interested please email me. And I am a member at The most amazing thing at beach body is if you own their exercise workouts you can plug in what you have and what workouts you want to do and the program can create a workout calendar for you. One of the things I have struggled with is having to make a decision daily what workout to do. And they do it for you. How great is that.

Putting my health first is best for my family. I can serve them better when I am healthy strong and fit.

What are YOU going to do to change your life for the better. YOU are GOD's TEMPLE treat it accordingly!

  1. Congratulations. It sounds as if you and I are on a very similar journey. I was told that if you get the physical in order (healthy) then the mental and everything else just seems to fall in line. I sure hope this is correct. I plan on making 2011 a much different year than 2010! Good luck and I look forward to hearing about your continued journey!
