Gym Challenge Update#2

I'm still following my gym challenge and I am very proud of myself. I personally find it easier to go to aerobic and spin classes vs. trying to figure out something on my own to do everyday. I feel healthier but the scale has not moved at all...the culprit my piss poor eating habits!!! Lesson for me and everyone to take away from this DIET is 70% of weight loss it can actually be the only thing you change and you can achieve your weight loss goals. So I must attack the diet portion I talked last night with my fiance about my diet and eating habits we discussed some things for me to implement immediately that I can see great results with.
To attack Cravings:
1.) Drink water when you crave things and even between meals
2.) Chew gum
3.) Eat a low calorie snack like fruit or veggie sticks

To attack bad eating habits:
1.) Only drink water no sodas or processed juices
2.) Use the fruit and veggie juicer to replace one meal a day (like breakfast or lunch)
3.) Eat appropriate foods at the appropriate meal times (I love left overs for breakfast but that is really unhealthy or don't have a huge lunch like steak or potatoes have a salad soup or fruit and a sandwich)
4.) No fast food (it is high in calories and will also help me save money)

So since this is my gym update where I talk about going to the gym everyday I thought I would show a celebrity that goes to the gym every day that has modified her eating habits and looks fantastic now...

Kim Kardashian

The top three are before she started tackling her eating habits and the bottom two are the AFTER pictures. She is still curvy but so much more toned her body is amazing!!!

Gym Challenge Update!!!

I haven't missed a day!!!I find its easier for me to stick with it so far by going to aerobics classes (a trained instructor tells you what to do to have an amazing workout). I've gone to kick boxing, turbo-kick (its like high impact kick boxing lots of cardio), step aerobics, and today i'm going to spin class. Now if only I could get my diet under control I love to binge on all the wrong things. So who is my fitspiration this week?!?!?

None other than Rihanna...

Rihanna follows a low-carb diet and works out. Weight loss with a low carb diet is much faster than your traditional low-fat diet. Some tips to help you start a low-carb diet:
1.) Eliminate white foods such as breads, pasta, rice, and potatoes
2.) Eliminate as much sugar from your diet as possible such as fruit juices, sodas, cookies, cakes, and candies
3.) Eliminate processed and Incorporate more unprocessed foods as possibles into your diet
4.) Finally research popular low carb diets such as Adkins,South Beach, and the Dukan diet (made popular my Kate Middleton)

40 day gym challenge...weight update!!!

I want her abs!!! She is my fitspiration for this week!! Last time I weighed I was 178 I got up to 183 so i'm down 5 which is most likely water weight. However during the time I lost that weight I worked out and ate about 1000 calories a day!!! I want to really keep my workouts up soooo I decided to challenge myself to go to the gym everyday until I leave for Miami which is in exactly 44 days. I have failed at every challenge I have made so this time I asked my Fiancee to raise the stakes for me. He offered me a trip to NYC (Our favorite place in the whole wide world) if I am successful so here goes...I officially start Friday 8-5-2011 and will go to 9-14-11 which is 40 days. I will update you on my success this time I will not fail!!!
