I post a lot of my drinking water containers on twitter. Making fun of myself calling it camouflaged water as I drink it from my Dunking Donuts cup
or Starbucks cup. I even had it out in a big gulp cup but didn't successfully finish that before it was left unattended and dumped down the sink.
Well I started on the overindulgence of drinking water last week and my 30 day challenge started today. So I am going to hold myself accountable with you guys (and the fitness group that started it).
Our mission and I did choose to accept it was to. 1) post our meals, water consumption and workouts 2) take before pics and measurements 3) Adhere to the rules and wait and watch the transformation.
I am excited because I am feeling more serious this time and usually bomb out but I'm focused. Summer is still here and there is a chance I can walk around the pool with some confidence. I have posted various pictures on the other social media sites but will stick with food and exercise with you guys. Eventually I would like to add a quick easy workout to my you tube channel but I am still working on that.
For now I invite you to join me on this journey. I will have bad food choices I can guarantee you that but my goal is too have more good ones than bad. That cheesecake picture was from last week and I have eaten out a few more times and successfully declined dessert. (Which is a HUGE feat for me)
My journey will only be with healthy food or food in general. No supplements, protein shakes or diet meals. Definitely exercise which I enjoy consisting of anything and everything. My muscle content is on certain parts of me and other areas lack drastically. I plan to get my body on the same track.
Day 1 meals!
Peaches and bananas for breakfast with my water. Lunch was a salad with cucumbers, carrots and tuna fish sprinkled with garlic and onion powder with more water. Dinner was 1 hard beef taco and 1/4 Spanish rice at a local restaurant with a sweet tea and more water. I drank about 91 oz of water today!!
My workout included a bike ride to my gym and back 3.78 miles, 12 laps in the pool and various weight training with my arms and legs.
I do workout for the muscle tone not to be skinny. I have a focus of what I want to look like and what I don't want to look like. Sadly I do not know if or how much weight I can lose or just only tone what I have. I will deal with that as it comes. Everything I do is attainable by anyone. I am not lifting hundreds of pounds, running or biking marathons. Sometimes my kids go with me so it's not always about speed as much as it is about just moving.
