The good, the bad, and the sweet

Week one is in the books for 2017.  I am going to give full disclosure of my progress for the first week of the year.  I nailed the workouts.  I sampled the beach body on demand during the month of December and was only able to access older programs.  But, when they rolled out the all access, I was excited to give it a whirl.  I paid for the year membership and couldn’t wait to try Piyo.  But, to really decide on a program, I sampled Country Heat and Core De Force as well.

For every workout I completed, I put a flag sticker in my planner. To see the week filling up with stickers was a nice reminder to keep going.  After all, as children we were excited to get stickers on our homework or for completing a book for the pizza hut book program.  I then wrote down which workout I completed in the weekly log.  I completed Piyo upper body which is only a 20 minute workout.  I wasn’t sweating and I was slightly disappointed.  I thought I would be aching all over after completing the workout.  Turns out, it has a two day after effect.  I felt the workout on Wednesday.  Tuesday and Sunday (log runs Mon-Sun) I completed two different Country Heat videos.  Once again, didn’t really feel the effects.  I was breaking a sweat by the final 5 minutes though, so I felt good about that.  Core De Force was my favorite.  It was challenging and low impact.  I was really feeling every muscle and could see how people were getting results with this program.  I plan to use this program for the challenge that starts today.

Now, I mentioned the bad and the sweets.  The food portion of this week was beyond failure.  I ate just about every sweet we had in the house plus some.  To give you an idea, I still had girl scout cookies from last march in my freezer.  Key word there, HAD.  I told myself I was not going to worry about the food until I got my workouts in a routine.  It is harder to stick with a program if you make too many changes at once.  On the flip side, I am being completely honest with my food log and writing down every last slice of pizza, brownie, candy, cookie and adult beverage I am consuming.  Even with my ridiculous food choices, I still saw a slight improvement with how my pants were fitting (for the good) by just increasing the workouts again.

This next week I plan to continue the Core de Force workouts and starting to modify my eating habits.  I used to love fruits and vegetables.  But, honestly I am addicted to sugar. I look forward to reporting my progress next week!

Be confident, be fit, be you!
