Bikini Ready Body Challenge: Weigh In and Next Weeks Schedule

This week was hard.  My eating was not as good as it could have been and I didn’t workout at all.  My life just feels like it’s going in hyperspeed now and I just want to pause.  There is always a test, or a quiz, or a project, or a huge assignment to complete that I have to work on.  I take the SATs soon and I have to start studying for them and there is just so much pressure on me now that I feel like I’m drowning in a huge pool.  I’m trying to get it together but I have never been so underwater in my life, and I was a swimmer for most of my adolescence.  I will try to do the best I can with this challenge even with everything else though.

Bikini Ready Body Challenge: Weigh In and Next Weeks Schedule

And I am done with 1st week of my Bikini Ready Body Challenge.  I have to say this week has been a learning experience.  I started off good and then started reverting to bad habits (starving) and then binging.  I decided that I want to keep my calories between 1200-1500 calories so I have a bit of wiggle room.  My workouts for next week are also shorter so I will be more likely to do them.  My main goal for the next few months is to gain healthier habits and get to a healthy weight.  As long as the scale is moving in the right direction I am happy.  Here was my workout schedule for this week: Continue reading

Bikini Ready Body Challenge

One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to get to a comfortable weight/body.  To get there I’m going to start posting weekly updates on my weight, diet and workouts.  Hopefully I can help anyone who is trying to get fit. This challenge will go till June 21st which the end of school for me.  I have lost weight before so I know what I need to do, I just need to do it.  This program is going to be a similar format to Beach Body Bootcamp, which I did over a year ago.  For my workout I think I’m going to try the Insanity Workout again.   Continue reading

How To Roast Chickpeas

I posted this picture on instagram like 2 weeks ago and have planned to do a recipe post for a while but just never got around to it.  It’s actually an easy process, you just need to experiment with the spices.  The first pictures of the ones I made and the second is the recipe!

Hot Bod 4 Week Challenge: Final Review

SG in Bikini 3 edit

Yesterday was the final day of Hot Bod 4 Week Challenge and I have to say that I was not very good with it.  I didn’t follow all of the rules every day and know that if I did, I would have had better results.  But with this behind me, I plan on working hard and just trying to eat healthy.  As many of you know I promised a prize($15 itunes gift card for your workout playlist) to those who participated.  To win that prize, you must be following my blog, instagram, and twitter.  And you must comment on this post answering the questions: How did this challenge help you become healthier/fitter?  And what were your results?  At least 15 people must participate and add your twitter and instagram name in your response.  Good luck!

In Which the Protagonist Begins to Workout Again…

Today was my first day of working out in weeks.  I have many excuses for why I have not worked out:

  • School was ending
  • Finals
  • Stress
  • It was hot out
  • I’ll workout tomorrow
  • I’m perfectly happy with being unhealthy
  • and many many more

But the main reason includes the following: Continue reading

Hot Bod 4 Week Challenge: Week 1 Review

SG in Bikini 3 edit

I hope Week 1 was awesome for all those that participated.  Week 1 was not very good for me though.  I ate food I wasn’t suppose to eat and didn’t workout. My cop out is school’s almost over for me and I have to do projects and study for finals but I still should have done better.

This week I’m gonna try and start insanity and continue running and eating healthy.  I’m going on vacation in 8 weeks so it’s crunch time.  I hate being unhealthy and not working out, I feel so lazy and gross.  Here is my workout schedule(but it is subject to change): Continue reading

Hot Bod 4 Week Challenge(Prize info included!)

SG in Bikini 3 edit

Summer’s just about here and I know I’m not ready for it.  But that’s okay because for the next 4 weeks both you and me will be busting our butts to get in awesome shape.  I have a list of guidelines that you can pick and choose which ones you want to follow. The ones I stress that you do are closer to the top of the list.  The challenge will run from June 2 to June 29.  I recommend not weighing yourself till the very end so that you will not be disappointed.  Base your results on how you feel and how your clothes fit for a better indication. Personally I will be following all these guidelines and I will hopefully show you my results.  The guidelines are: Continue reading
