#4WeeksFit {well 6 really}

So I wasn't going to do a post today, thus why this is going live so late.

But sometimes you stumble upon something that is so fitting with your day that you might as well post it. I mean really, I saw the #4WeekFit link up over at my friend Kayla's blog and immediately thought "hey, I should do that!"


Love, Fun & football

So here we are, talking fitness today on the blog. And why is it such a good fit for today you might ask? Well today is day one of my Warrior Fit 6 week body transformation.

I did the 28 Day challenge with Warrior Fit in 2013 and had great results. I lost a little over 10 lbs in four weeks. I also gained a lot of experience in eating healthy and clean. Most of all I LOVED the work outs. Their program is made up of 30 minute workouts, all of which kick your butt. Plus at only 30 minutes I never felt like it was the time commitment a trip to the gym would be.

So when I saw their Groupon go live again I knew I wanted a second go at it. 

Why? Because I have 5 weddings this year. FIVE. And I'm sick of looking at pictures of myself in cute dresses and being disgusted by my body. I've reached an all time low...I have a gut. I think all girls probably have that little pooch that goes over their pants?? (anyone? Bueller?) Well mine has become full beer gut status. Now my leggings/yoga pants that I usually wear high up, over the "pooch" won't stay up and sit below the nasty little baby bump I have, with no actual baby. The belly is real my friends and it needs to go away.

See exhibit A: Me looking excessively chubby coming down the aisle at my friend's wedding in October.
So today I started the Warrior Fit nutrition plan (the first 3 days are a cleanse and nothing but fruits and vegetables). Tonight I am going to my first workout class with them. And for the first time in a long time I'm hopeful this might actually be the kick in the ass I need.

The goals:
1 | Attend 4 Warrior Fit classes a week and lift 2 times a week (can be on the same day as class)

2 | Follow the Warrior Fit Nutrition Plan as closely as possible for the entire 6 weeks (that includes my birthday but there are built in "cheat days" so I can hopefully use one that day)

3 | No alcohol. After this weekend and spending entirely too much time in bed and running to the bathroom to throw up yesterday, this one is a no brainer. I HAVE to stop doing that to myself. Plus, no alcohol means less calories and a healthier fat burning system overall.

4 | Lose 10 + pounds/feel better. I don't really want to put a poundage goal here, but since I lost 10 over 4 weeks last time, I think 10 is doable for 6 weeks. I just want my clothes to fit better and to feel better overall. I know a healthy diet and lots of activity will work wonders for that.

Here's hoping 4 weeks from now I'll be feeling fit and fab in time for my birthday! I'll post more about my Warrior Fit challenge as I go along (and some healthy recipes!).


Go link up with Erin and Kristin and share your fitness goals for this month.
 
Happy first Monday of March ladies!!

  7. FYI - being a wedding photographer - that angle is the WORST angle to photograph someone from - so don't be too hard on yourself :)
    Go get 'em girl!!!

  9. You go Glen Coco! I can't wait to see the journey you're taking. Love that you're taking this head on and kicking ass.

    Also, the photos in your wedding recap are gorgeous - this one convinces me that poor photographer doesn't understand you never take pictures of anyone at that angle!
