…my new take on life! (HA! Thought I was going to use a cliche there, did you?)
For the past few months I have been working out with a DVD set from Tony Horton called 10 Minute Trainer. I have also been having an on-again, off-again relationship with the Atkins high protein-low carb diet. The dynamic duo of working out and high protein landed me a body weight of 175 or 180 when I lived in Denver. While I am not trying to get that low again, I DO need to shed some pounds here.
Ever since I started working out, I was following the DVDs in a kind of haphazard, whatever-I-feel-like way. Then recently I started looking at the Team Beach Body site more in depth. And man, there is a WEALTH of info to be found there. They have an “auto-schedule” feature where you can pick from a variety of workouts already planned for you 28 days in advance. This is exactly what I need: solid, concrete goals. I chose a schedule called “getting started” because I figure: since I WAS doing things kind of aimlessly but now I have a set path to follow, it pretty much IS like starting over.
When I first got in touch with Dave Rydelnik and was introduced to the Team Beach Body world, I was around 220 pounds or more. On top of that I was “breaking” the Atkins diet on weekends. There was even a point when I just flat out did away with it. Last weekend I weighed myself and I was down to 210. And that’s despite all the screwing around and goofing off I did. I can’t wait to see what happens in 28 days now that I have a plan and the drive to stick to the diet AND workout side of things!
