February is here.
Personal goals for this month are to watch what I eat (and not just as I shovel it in my mouth) and stick to my brand spanking-new exercise plan. I also want to try at least 4 new recipes this month.
Nutritionally, my general plan is to just make good choices regarding what I eat. I do not do well when it comes to counting calories, measuring food or keeping a diet diary, but I do plan to massively increase my water intake, eat more fruits, veggies and lean proteins, and cut back on the desserts. Not cut out, mind you, but cut back.
For the exercise plan, I'll be using the Jillian Michaels' 30-Day Shred. The reviews all seem to say that this is a tough workout that gets results, and my BFF Cindy swears by it. Each workout is only 22 minutes long, and I'm sure I can find that time each day. My goal is to stick with this workout for 60 days before I reassess and make any judgements regarding my progress. Because I think daily weighing-in is counter-productive for me and my style, I will weigh in and measure only at the 15, 30, 45 and 60-day marks.
As for the recipes, I'm sure I can find some here:
