So the other day Sean realized that he gained like 10 pounds in the past four to six months. With this realization he proposed we have a weight loss competition to see who can lose the most weight until Vegas in May. And whoever loses has to buy the first dinner we eat in Vegas. I have a feeling he may win for weight lost but I will be able to tone up even more than I have already and be able to rock that bikini even better. Then we will see who the real winner is 😉
I may have more fitness themed posts, I’m not quite sure what I feel like doing. What I do know for myself is that this little competition is already helping me want to pay more attention to what I food I put into my body. For starters I am being strict again with not eating dairy and gluten. I find that when I eat dairy and gluten, it causes my asthma to act up to the point where I need to use my inhaler to help out my airways. Last week I wasn’t caring about what I ate because we had a couple family events that involved food so I didn’t want to limit what I ate. I know it’s not the best thing to do but I did it anyways. I wound up paying for it in the end because I had to use my inhaler. Blehk. Then the next thing I will be doing is cardio. I have been a major slacker in that department and only focusing on strength training. I look forward to see how adding more cardio will help improve my body.
I usually try to go to the gym and strength train 3 to 4 times a week. I alternate lower body and upper body workouts. I do that so I am able to strength train multiple days in a row. From now on I will incorporate cardio at the end of my upper body workouts and on my off days for strength training I will also do some form of cardio as well.
Well I’m off to go have some lunch, here’s a picture of my lunch from yesterday! It was delicious!
