14 Days to Lean

Today I start the “14 Days to Lean” program that my trainer suggested.  It’s by Gunnar Peterson and we all know he’s a big fitness guru.  We’ve been waiting until tax season ended to start it.  So we’re starting on 4/15, TAX DAY…so the one day of the year that I’m supposed to let loose and indulge, I’m actually starting a crazy program has me doing insane workouts 6 days a week and cutting anything and everything indulgent (including adult beverages) from my diet.  EXCELLENT PLANNING!  Luckily Shannon is doing it with me.

No worries…besides, if I hadn’t been indulging for the entire month of March, maybe I wouldn’t need this.  🙂  You’ve heard me say it before, I’m a stress eater and March is my most stressful month so you put the two together and it’s a recipe for disaster.

It’s been a great weekend to get back on track.  Shannon and I took a Bootcamp class Saturday morning in the park.  This lady was a little crazy – like Drill Sergeant crazy.  Every time she caught one person pausing for more than 2 seconds, she made the entire group do 5 burpees with a push-up at the bottom.  Most of us were strangers to each other and the last thing you want to do when you meet a group of new people is be the one to cost them a 5-burpee penalty.  NOT COOL!  But the class was great and I’m still sore.  Today I walked the water tower trail twice for a total of 4 miles.  I’m pretty sure this means my body will not be in the best form to start a new intense workout regimen first thing tomorrow morning.

The diet on this program looks pretty similar to what I’ve done on other “challenges”.  The plan is 5 small meals spaced out every 3-4 hours consisting of fruits and vegetables, lean protein, healthy fats and whole grains.  The goal is for your meals to be 40% lean protein, 40% complex carbs and no more than 20% fat.  And of course, drink plenty of water.  I guess this means I’ll have to use my food log app again to keep track of all this.

Pretty sure none of this is on the meal plan:

Wish me luck and let’s hope I see some progress!
