DEADLINE - JUNE 30, 2011

OMG I've gone and done it.  I went and committed to being in bikini shape by June 30, 2011 (shopping day).  What on earth have I done????  It's a lofty goal, but one I'm sure I can achieve ....

Hey, a girl can dream you know :)

I haven't said much lately about how things are going.  They're going pretty well.  My workouts have been fairly consistent, my nutrition not too bad.  Nothing earth shattering, but I don't feel like I'm reverting back to my old ways.  There are days tho .....

Officially I'm in Week 11 of my 12 week challenge.  I had originally planned on taking a couple of weeks "off"; not doing BFL, just cardio and yoga.  But given that I haven't been as consistent as I should have been, I'm going to keep going until December 31st.  Since January 1st is a Saturday (my free day), I'm going to start again on January 2nd.  This time I'm doing circuit training.  Change things a little.  I'll do circuits Sun/Tue/Thur and Cardio and yoga on Mon/Wed/Fri.  For 12 weeks.  That will take me to the end of March and give me another 3 months before "B Day" (bikini day :) ).  I'll figure out closer to the time whether I'll do circuits or BFL.   My nutrition is the same regardless of which workout program I go with.

So even tho it's the holidays, it's still important to eat healthy, exercise, drink lots of water and get lots of rest.

I fell on my way to work this morning.  My feet came out from underneath me and I landed flat on my back in the middle of the road.  Not a good thing.  I got back up, dusted myself off, crossed the next street and nearly did it again but I caught myself.  I think that's why I'm sore now.  But I didn't break anything and I didn't hit my head (as far as I know), so hopefully I won't be too sore to do my leg workout tomorrow.

Until next time....


  1. OMGOSH!! Please keep a close eye on your back and though you may not have hit your head - the jarring of it could make for some sore muscles of the neck. I like to blame it on the weather, but the real culprit is the city and its lack of salting and clean up.

    You know we have to keep encouraging each other June 30th will be here before you know it!!! I'm looking forward to shopping...

    I too have been a bit less than "good" with my eating lately .. I'm blaming it on my lack of energy and the contractors. But the truth is I need to make sure Mr. G. works on meal planning with me... I find following a weekly menu plan - offers me structure and no thinking required as to what, when, how much to eat.

    Please take care of yourself ... a bump on the head will not get you out of June 30th bikini shopping...xo HHL

  2. Just like your program, baby! You'll fall once in a while but still you get up and keep going. That's my girl.

    Love you.


  3. I think it's brave to set that goal -- I don't know if I will ever be "bikini" ready again... 2 c-sections make quite the impact on tummy muscles.

    I may be ready to rock a nice one piece though ;>

  4. Was there ice on the ground when you slipped? I hate when that happens! LOL.

    Good luck on getting in shape for B-Day! You can do it! :-)

    P.S. I subbed to your blog. I hope you don't mind.

  5. Great photo! :)
