Please interact with comments and photos. It makes it much more fun and one of my goals for this blog is to have FUN!
As we talked about in the first blog, to kick off the launch of the blog, Elite Physiques is hosting a contest to see who can send in the most “Fitness Fashion” photos.
We all have lots of exercise clothes in our closets that we don’t wear, and you may have received new styles at Christmas. In January and February, break out those leg warmers, sweaty bands and wicking shirts and let's see the photos from each time you work out!
My goal is to get back into some of the pants I love but are too tight. What do you think of my fitness pants?
They look better on, however they do have some big legs. How long have I had these pants??????
Next post I will share with you some great places to shop for the coolest workout clothes.
OK, now we have to talk about how we are going to look great in our clothes. This is my plan for the next three months in a nutshell:
Weight training - 3 times a week (the best way to increase your metabolic rate and burn more calories). I will work 2 to 3 muscle groups each workout, 3 to 5 sets for small muscle groups and 5 to 10 for large, 10 to 15 reps.
Cardio - 3 times a week for 30 minutes unless I take a class which might be one hour. I will take 2 days off but still be active.
Eating plan - this one is easy. No gluten, sugar, or processed foods. Start the morning with a cup of hot water with lemon. Within 2 hours, I will have my green smoothie. On my weight training days I will have 2 eggs with cheese and spinach. I will eat a normal lunch and dinner (following the rules above) and a snack only if I have to.
I know this is not a lot of information about eating, but we will talk more later. Keep it simple and always know what you are going to eat for the whole week. Cook your food ahead on your day off.
Until next time.
