Non- sewing related! 20 week challenge!

 No, this is not a sewing challenge of some sort, but a fitness challenge more or less! Here's the deal, I have 20 weeks until I turn the big 3-0 that's right 30 years young! Well, you may be saying, what is this challenge..

Well, it's no secret that I have put on some pounds in this past year. I would love to blame the devastating earthquake that rocked Japan this year, or this or that, but the truth of the matter is:There's NO excuse....So, starting tomorrow Monday morning I will be starting my 20 week challenge.. I am not trying to get skinny, only better! God willing, when I see the big 3-0 I want to be in the BEST shape of my life!

20 weeks of "Turbo Fire" Bring it!
I plan to follow a semi-moderate low carb lifestyle, and get down to "Turbo Fire" from beach body with Chalene Johnson, which is a 20 week program! I am excited to prove to myself that I can do this!

I am so worth it, and so are you! I mean, I am very comfortable in my own skin, because heavens knows I loves me some Candice lol! However, I know there is always room for improvement! Every four weeks I plan to post a body shot of a before and after photo up until the 20th week sometime in February...As I don't believe every week you would be able to see a change...

Well, alright Divas I am off to prepare for my new journey, just wanted to share a little tidbit in my world outside of sewing, wish me the best! Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!

  1. Go for it! You do deserve the best. I'm trying to get my act together too. Good luck!

  2. I'll be routing for you! I was also hoping to start something Monday myself but there are parts of my 30th spread I like and then there's parts I don't, but I don't know how to lose the those without losing the others too :(

  3. I have started to eat less carbs. It's not easy, but I'm going day by day, and it is getting slightly easier each day.

    DH and I go the the gym, and we've modified our treadmill routine as follows: 90 seconds at 2 mph followed by 30 seconds at 4 mph. I intend to raise the high speed a little bit at a time.

    Here are two books that reflect my diet and exercise changes: "The Doctor's Heart Cure" (discussed diet and exercise) and "Living the Los-Carb Life" (compares low-carb "diets").

  4. Karin, thank you! @Shawnta, thanks girl I will need it lol!@ Marysews, thanks for stopping by and I will check out amazon to see about ordering those two books you recommended! Thanks again ladies for the support!

  5. You definitely look fabulous right now :) but there's nothing wrong about working toward being your best. I wish you much luck on your new journey!
