Talk about a defunct blog. It has been one crazy wild summer. I don't even know where the time has gone. Seriously! Part of the reason for being so MIA. Is that I have been very committed to a different kind of journey this summer.
In June I joined a challenge on the Burn The Fat Feed The Muscle website. It is called the Summer Burn Transformation Contest. I started the contest at 144lbs and 26% bodyfat. We had to take pictures (which I will post here in a few days) both at the beg and the end. I have worked very very hard. I have been getting in 6 days a week of cardio and 4 days a week of strength training. I cleaned up my diet with the help of the Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle ebook. In the last month I even did double cardio. I know crazy right. But I have a rockin new body to show for it.
In a few days the contest ends. This morning I weighed in at 127lbs and 12.5% bodyfat. The bodyfat number I believe is a bit inaccurate. I think I am probably closer to 15 or 16% It's still pretty darn good. I haven't been this small since my 20's, before I had kids. I will probably post more details in the days to come but if you are interested in knowing more of my personal experience do not hesitate to comment or email me. I will gladly give you particulars on how I did it. Yes it was hard work, no there was no magic pill. But as I've learned extraordinary results require extraordinary effort!
So the contest closes in a couple of days. I am ready to get more focused on my scrapping and my designing. I am hoping in addition to my designing to find a CT team also. I miss my scrapping. Of course I also plan to keep up my exercise but I can keep it more at a mait level now. Plus this year all 3 kids are in school for a FULL day. I am so excited about that I am definitely the parent from the staples commercial. (Gleefully dancing to "It's the most wonderful time of the year.") Is that bad to be looking forward to the children being back to a routine? To having a few quiet hours where there is not a single child asking me to drive them somewhere, or to make them something or to help them find something to do. Aaaaaaah I can just imagine it now.
Look for more from me soon!
