End of Week 2 Update

Week 2 is in the books!

This week has gone well. I've really been liking my workout, TT Metabolic Resistance Training. I'm down 5 lbs and about 1% bodyfat since Day 1 of the contest. Whoo-hoo!!

The best part is that I feel like I've been eating "real food". What I mean by that is I've been eating yummy, healthy food (a lot of recipes from Clean Eating magazine), and not, for example, carrot sticks wrapped in a lettuce leaf. Because that would make me cranky. :)

Here's my workout week in a nutshell:

Sunday: TT Metabolic Resistance Training, Workout A (about 30 minutes)
Monday: 25 minutes Warrior Yoga
Tuesday: OFF
Wednesday: TT Metabolic Resistance Training, Workout B (about 20 minutes)
Thursday: OFF
Friday: TT Metabolic Resistance Training, Workout C (about 35 minutes)
Saturday: TT Metabolic Resistance Training, Workout D (about 20 minutes)

Have a great day!

New TT Contest and Jedi Mind Tricks

Well, I did it. I signed up for TT Transformation Contest #12. My start date was Sunday, September 11 and my son took my Before pictures. As a photographer, he's as good as (if not better than) his father! Haha. :)

I meant to post this earlier because the last day to enter for a full 12 week transformation was September 17. You can still enter, but you won't get the full 12 weeks because you have to submit your final pictures and essay by Saturday, December 10.

The first week went pretty well for me. One of my first tasks was to remove alcohol from my diet. For the past several months I've been through a bit of a depression and I became best friends with a certain boozy pirate. This contest has been a great way for me to "get my act together". Being back on the forums and seeing old friends really has given me a boost.

The workout that I chose to start with is TT Metabolic Resistance Training. It's 4 days a week, but I really needed something that was going to help me get back on track. This workout has been perfect for me. There are 2 days that are strength training in supersets and 2 days that are more of a circuit. So it's been a nice variety.

Yesterday my daughter attempted to use her Jedi Mind Tricks on me. Instead of asking for a yellow straw for her glass of milk, she said to me, "You will give me a yellow straw." Maybe she's the one who finally made me commit to the TT Contest, "You will join the TT Contest." ;) Now I just need to get my mindset focused - Get into shape, we will!!

Have a great day!
