My go to snack: sugar snap peas! They have a sweetness to them which curbs my hunger but they’re also 100% natural and very healthy.

Fitness Routine

My fitness routine and diet changes whenever I stop seeing results (I’ll post my “diet” in another post). The routine that I’m doing now involves Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred and let me tell you: I’ve seen HUGE changes since I’ve started it.

Okie Dokie here’s my fitness routine breakdown

20 min run/speed walk: On a treadmill I warm up at level 3.7 for 4 minutes. Then I go up to level 6.5 and start running for 2 minutes, then I bring it back down to level 3.7 again and speed walk for 2 minutes, I do this until the 20 minutes is completed. 

20 min Pilates: I have a DVD of Winsor Pilates Accelerated Body Sculpting, I do the ab portion for 20 minutes. It workouts out my abs and there are also several stretches that help strengthen and stretch my back.

27 min Shred: I just completed level 1 of the Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred. I LOVE it. It’s available on youtube http://youtu.be/1Pc-NizMgg8 or you can purchase the DVD on Amazon. 

30 min brisk walk: I take a walk around my neighborhood in the evening, I do it mostly for the fact that it calms me and gives me an opportunity to think and appreciate my life and everything in it that doesn’t consist of work, money, and school.

I’ll be honest, I don’t always get to each one of these, however that’s the ultimate goal. I always get to the Shred, if I miss one it’s usually either the 20 min walk/run or the 30 min brisk walk. I go to my gym for the 20 min walk/run so if I’m not up for making the 15 min drive I’ll miss that one. I do my 30 min walk at about 7:30pm, so if it gets too late or if I’m not home on time for it I can’t go because it’s too dark.

How Is the routine working out for me?

It’s going great, I’m seeing results, more definite results. It’s a lot of working out so it’s important that I eat throughout the day, not just 3 meals, I usually eat 5-6 small meals a day. I don’t let myself get hungry, if I feel hungry that means it’s time for a meal or a small snack. I have found that if I don’t keep myself nourished my muscles deteriorate or never even get the chance to grow, and I need those muscles to grow so they can burn more body fat.  xxo
