Body for Life Challenge

So I decided to challenge myself to a 12 week Body for Life Challenge! I've been reading all about it on fellow blogger's blogs and am totally motivated to start my challenge! I ordered the book on Amazon and a few new DVDs to kickstart the whole thing.

I don't think it will be easy, but I do hope it will work. Once I get the book and start reading through it, I will have Andy take before photos of me. I am considering posting my measurements and starting weight as well but that makes me kind of nervous. Not sure what I'm going to do!

Never heard of Body for Life? My girl Janetha has a great explanation on her site. I really need a kick in the pants before our Kauai trip. I found some old weigh loss logs from 2002...I weigh 20 lbs more now than I did then! YUCK.

So today I tried a HIIT workout. (High intensity, interval training) I did 20 minutes of weight training. I used machines and did not take a break between sets. Then I did some Jillian inspired supersets for maximum burn. I was totally feelin' the burn!!

Then I got on the treadmill. I set it at 20 minutes.

Minute 1-2: walked at 3.8 mph with a 0.5 incline
Minute 2-5: Ran at 5.5 with a 1.5 incline
Minute 5-8: walked at 4.2 mpg with a 1.0 incline
8-12: ran at 5.5 with a 1.5 incline (this is tough for me!)
12-16: walked at 3.8 with a 2.0 incline
16-18: Ran at 5.5 mph with a 0.5 incline
18-20: walked at 3.5 mph with a 0.5 incline

Cooldown 7 minutes at a 3.5 mph speed with a 3.0 incline. I didn't have a plan in mind, just a wacky workout. My heart rate stayed between 165-180 and I burned 686 calories. My heart was pounding through the supersets and the run.

Last night my best friend Tiffany, her boyfriend Gary, Andy and myself decided to go mini golfing. It was blacklight mini golf and under the sea themed. So down. I love whales!

016

Unfortunately my camera does not respond well to dark lighting so I needed to use the flash. Which makes it look less exciting.

017

Shark attack?

018

Then we drove to another mini golf place to get some Farrell's ice cream! Andy is from San Diego and used to take me on dates to Farrell's before the San Diego location closed down. This one is in Santa Clarita.

019

022

They make an ice cream sundae that looks like mashed potatoes and roast chicken. Creeptastic?

023

I need this lamp in my kitchen.

024

Tiff and I shared this (not BFL approved) banana split. It's okay, I haven't officially started BFL!

025

This morning, I made some banana-chocolate chip pancakes before working out. I should have made protein pancakes! I didn't think about it till now.

028

After our workout Andy had a protein shake with Jay Robb's strawberry egg white protein.

030

He just added some skim milk to the blender bottle and shook it up. He said it was pretty tasty!

032

033

I had some Jay Robb Chocolate Whey Protein but in smoothie form.

034

I used half of this Amazing Meal packet to amp up the greens and chocolate flavor.

Then added 1/2 cup unsweetened plain almond milk, 1/2 cup green juice, 1 frozen banana, 6 frozen strawberries and some cocoa powder.

035

SO GOOD! Jay Robb's protein powder is sooo delish.

Any of you interested in trying Body for Life with me?

That is some workout! HIIT is no joke! I love following bloggers as they take on new challenges. People have a lot of success with the BFL program.

What fun. Mini-golf and ice cream. That a good way to spent an evening out. It's been a while since I went mini-golfing. Though, I suck at it. hehehe...

Good luck with the challenge, I hear it works. I've thought about trying it in the past. Is it an expensive prgram?

I have to try some Jay Robb powder in place of my chemical powder- it looks so good!

Great job on starting the challenge. I think it would clash with my personality, but I'll be stealing your workouts- thanks much!

The golf and ice cream are like my dream combo! So much fun!

I tried BFL once, but didn't care for it - but you might like it! I'll be your cheerleader though!

Janetha makes Body for Life look SOOO easy but i've had 2 co-workers tell me if just wasn't the long-term lifestyle they could handle. One lady told me she did lose weight, but the diet consists of SO much cottage cheese she cannot eat that, or oatmeal ever since..5 years ago. When she decided the diet was a no-go for her. But hey, if you love oatmeal and cottage cheese, it'll probably be a fab diet for you!! Good luck girlie!!
I can't wait to see the results!!
