OK, so I agreed to be a guinea pig for a fellow blogger. She has an awesome site and some great workouts, and the 28 day reset seems appropriate for February.
It’s real peeps – none of that lose 30 pounds in 30 day baloney (how many calories is bologna?) She guaranteed me 6-8 pounds in the 28 days if I behave. Tough call, but I am going for it! WOO HOO!!
Here’s the deal, if any of you want to join me….
Diet: clean eating. Nothing processed or refined (or the minimum amount of said foods) That means you need to forgo Oreos, Ring Dings and M&M’s (yes, I know, the peanut ones are loaded with protein😃) Minimal carbs and try and have them all before 11:00 am
And…you have to commit to 28-30 minutes of exercise a day. Who’s with me? YAY!
I will be doing some Blogilates, Just head to the videos, and if you’re locked into Leslie, Denise or Tony…do that.
OK, Clean Eating. Great mag by the way, with very awesome recipes. So as my first good deed of the month, I’ll share a breakfast with you. High in calories, but it makes up for it in protein and it totally fills you up. AND, yup, coffee based! HOORAY FOR BREAKFAST!
