What a 32-day commitment looks like

On October 1st I started yet another “shape up” commitment and today the results are in.

My health kick consisted of daily workouts and healthy choice eating.

Here’s what I did:

  • The first 10-days of the Tracy Anderson 30-day Method
  • Running 7 days – 2 – 3kms after body shaping workout
  • Tracy Anderson’s mat routine video most days
  • dance cardio some days
  • boxing cardio a couple of days
  • extra ab work some days

Here’s what I ate and drank (sample of):

  • smoothies – almost daily
  • fresh juice
  • coffee decaf black
  • coffee soy flat white (sometimes)
  • decaf and herbal teas
  • lemon and water daily
  • salmon
  • rice
  • salads
  • fresh veg
  • fresh fruit
  • natural yoghurt
  • rice crackers
  • organic peanut butter
  • hummus
  • BBQ chicken
  • beef stir-fry
  • butter chicken with pappadoms (YES, I did)
  • chocolate (YES, I did)
  • homemade muffins (twice only)
  • pasta (2 small portions during the last week)

This month-long kick wasn’t tough. Sure, I missed a few workouts and I ate some chocolate and a tiny bit of wheat but I still got 95% of the results that I wanted. The best thing is that I want to continue this. I want to do daily fitness and steer away from wheat, dairy and processed foods.

I feel if I stick to my fitness, which I like to start by 6:30am so it’s done by 730am and I can get on with my day, I do not feel guilty about what I eat.

I’m off on holiday tomorrow so I hope all my work doesn’t unfold in 10 days!!!

My mindset in changing and that’s the hardest thing – if you can change the way you think, results will follow and your goals will be reached.
