My First Day+"Making the Cut” Book Review
So today was actually a lot of fun! I had a lot of information thrown at me, and I am excited to learn more tomorrow! I got to eat lunch with Hubby, how cool is that? We ate outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather. I met a lot of new people today, and I am hoping I can remember all of their names :) A lot of them already follow my blog(Hubby told them about it) so they already know a ton about me! I promise to have pictures of my lovely desk and all the goodies they blessed me with tomorrow!
After work Hubby and I carpooled home and I posted my GIVEAWAY, go check it out!!! I relaxed for a bit before I headed out for AKB(which was pretty hardcore). It was nice to get home so early, I think I am going to love my new schedule.
I have a little review for you all tonight about the book I have been reading called “Making the Cut” by Jillian Michaels.
It’s a pretty good book so far lot’s of wonderful tips and ideas about meals and workouts. I like that she is REAL in the book and doesn't sugar coat anything! Her book is a guide on how to drop those stubborn last 10 or 15 pounds in 30 days.
"Making the Cut: The 30-Day Diet and Fitness Plan for the Strongest, Sexiest You" sets itself apart from the myriad of fitness and weight loss books at your local bookstore because Michaels' program uses the process of oxidizing as a way to determine what kind of a metabolism your body has in order to lose weight effectively.
I took her oxidizing test to see how my metabolism works and apparently I am a balanced oxidizer and get my energy from a balanced amount of carbs,fats,and proteins. She has a 30 meal plan for me, and a 30 day workout that will help me to tone and get in the best shape of my life.
I don’t think I need to lose ANY WEIGHT, and I am pretty happy with the skin I am in, but I really like how she has a great workout routine that will mix it up a bit. I am not taking a HUGE BREAK from running, but I am slowing down my mileage for a little bit. Nothing major but I am giving my legs a bit of a rest. So I have decided to take Jillian’s 30 day challenge, I will still do my pushups,sit-ups, and,but will be doing Jillian’s workouts as well.
She’s got a couple rules in the book that I already live by. No junk food, eating four meals a day, and hydrating. The one that will be hard is no sweets or booze. I know it is going to be hard, but I really want to test this program out and see what results come out it.
I am not going to stick to the meal plan, because I already eat healthy I am going to do the workouts as closely as possible.
I am getting a bit bored with my workout routine, it’s time for some major circuit training and intensity?! Has anyone done her 30 day plan? If so what did you think?
Alright folks off to bed I go, Hubby and I are going to swim laps early tomorrow, at the pool at work!
