'Get Trimmer...' WEEK ONE

Hi Ladies!

GOAL: To kickstart a change in lifestyle - healthier eating and regular exercise.... and ofcourse to lose a few inches ;)


STRUCTURE:
  • It's going to run for exactly 2 months from Wednesday 1st June until Sunday 31st July
  • To confirm your participation - you all *have* to comment with your name and your goal.
    e.g. My name is Adura, my waist measurement is xx inches and my 2 month goal is to lose 4 inches. My long term goal is to lose yy kg and zz inches.

  • There will be weekly Nutrition tips/info
  • And weekly Exercise tips/info (home workout and gym classes)
  • It would be great to make this as interactive as possible - treat this as a forum to ask any questions, share recipes and useful information.
  • If you're interested in being featured during the 2 month period, please let me know.
  • I'm hoping, but not promising (yet!), there may be a prize involved :)

    - You are in good health. If neccessary, please consult your Dr especially if you feel unwell.
    - If any of the recipes or meal suggestions contain any ingredients you've never ingested, have a small amount to confirm you are not allergic. If you have access to an allergy test, please have one done.
    - If you are completely new to exercise, please consult a fitness professional to help you with technique.

    I will provide alternatives to exercises to make them suitable for beginners, intermediates and advanced :) If you have any injuries, please let me know what they are before you try out any exercises**

      Hey...I am in. Can't find my tape yet but will send measurment as soon as I can. Yesterday for breakfast I ate a bowl of oat meal, two cooked eggs, and tomatoes. For lunch I had a chicken sallad very late by 5. I am trying not to eat after 6. I am quite okay with the nutrition part but I have a very hard time motivating myself to jog...even though I do enjoy it when I do. Any tips? Today I ate omelette for breakfast and yoghurt and tomatoes. For lunch I might eat chicken and vegs. Still have not solved the training part.
