I’m officially on BIKINI BODY COUNTDOWN! 34 days until Hawaii!
Time to get serious, cut the sugar, and increase the workouts. I’ve done pretty well since starting Cinch in January, although have indulged in one too many sugar binges. My clothes fit better and I feel good, but I’m disappointed that the scale has not budged much. I’m still the same weight I was in January after finishing detox (138), although that’s still 6 pounds less than where I started. My husband has reminded me that some of that might be muscle weight that I’ve put on to replace fat (since muscle weighs more than fat), but seeing the scale was still a bit deflating. And thus, that’s why I’ve been avoiding it for a month!
OK, so here’s the plan. Stick to the basics of Cinch for my diet, zero sugar and very limited refined carbohydrates. Increase workouts to 5-6 days per week, including running, cycling, weight training, and plyometric intervals. I’ll post my food journal and exercise plan as often as I can in case anyone else wants to join in! I also see some great articles about bikini-body-prep from time to time, and will link those as well.

My husband forwarded me a cool blog link today. I had to laugh because I love that feeling of beating a guy at something sports related and seeing their reaction to “getting chicked”… http://www.rev3tri.com/!/blog/2011-3-21-gettingChicked.htm. And yes, I have “chicked” my husband on many ocassions, although he won’t admit it!
