For the last few months, I've been pushed to my physical limits in 2-3x a week high intensity circuit training classes at Living Lean. At first I felt like I had lost all my strength and was battling a huge uphill battle. But I persisted and slowly but surely I have gotten stronger. Much stronger.
But alas the scale had not budged much and many of my pants were still tight.
So I knew I needed to finally focus on my diet and nutrition.
Enter the 7 Day Slimdown.
My friend Emily had tried this earlier last year and lost a good bit of weight in one short week. She was kind enough to share the details of the plan she followed, but unfortunately it sat there, in my inbox, for months.
Until this weekend, when I finally convinced myself it was time for a jumpstart.
Maybe it was the fact that my husband has been killing it with his workouts and nutrition for months (and the results are VERY evident ;) ...or perhaps it was a switch in my mindset after kicking some major butt in classes last week (yes confidence is a result of my training with Jen). Whatever it is, I'm ready to be the me I've strayed away from.
So, for the next 7 days, I'm adopting a VERY clean diet. One that is void of dairy, grains and SUGAR. And one that is full of fruits, vegetable and lean protein. It's not rocket science (in fact my sister joked with me on Facebook that this is the diet she lives by everyday), but it's a manageable plan.
And I for one am excited to see what the week brings.
