The day we arrived home I was eager to get back into my daily workout routine! However the weather was uncooperative, and my motivation quickly dwindled to the joy of TV. At the start of this New Year I vowed to run a 10 km this upcoming Sunday but now sadly my unconditioned butt is dropping down to a 5km. So I must confess that I did not make my 10km goal for March!
However, this is my wake-up call of too much good food, wine, and HBO. I need refocus my priorities making a serious commitment to my workout routine and diet.
Vacation was fun! But all of my bad vacation habits stuck with me when I returned home.
So to get back on track and rescue my bloated belly from the brink of despair – I have made a basic 10 step plan to wiggle my way back into my skinny jeans and to run a 10 km in May.
Drink at least eight glasses of water a day. If I do not fail to run to the bathroom at least five times in the afternoon than I’m not drinking enough…
I will limit my caffeine in take to two cups of coffee per day without sugar. But if you see me begin to detox with shakes back away slowly and run!
I will eat a healthy salad or pita sandwich at lunch with a piece of fruit for dessert . Farwell, to my deep love of carbs. We both knew a day would arrive when our passionate affair would come to an end.
I will place a lock on the bread box and throw away the key.
I will maintain my weekly workout schedule. If I fail to run, spin, or sweat than you can send Dog the Bounty Hunter after me. But I’m pretty sure I can still out run him…
I will limit my sloshy drinking habits to two glasses of wine on the weekend. And I believe my wallet and ass will thank me for it!
I will enjoy take-out only once a week; laying off my deep love for Butter Chicken and the goodness of aloo tiki. I wonder if I should scratch Donairs and poutine off the take-out list as well? Can’t completely deprive myself can I?
Every morning must start with an early morning Yoga Routine. It’s all about clearing the mind, rejuvenating the soul, and being all bendy!
I will do two Body Rock challenges per week! Have you seen Zuzana? She makes Jane Fonda look like a cupcake!
I will laugh! And laugh until my heart’s content!
It’s time to get back to basics and enjoy the little things in life! I have a feeling this basic plan will help dwindle my muffin top and make me move!
What is the best lifestyle choice you ever made? What was your plan of action to achieve your goals?
