I’ve reached a plateau. Ya know, when your workouts become less effective, or in my case, I’m bored to tears, so I’m not giving it 100%, therefore, my workouts have become less effective. I’ve bought two new DVDs: One-On-One Trainng with Jackie. She’s the chick from the show Workout on Bravo. I also bought    10 Minute Solution Hot Body Boot Camp. It has 5 ten minute workouts which is perfect for me to do in the evenings. I’ll be doing both these workouts for a week, then I’ll report my findings.

I’d love to hear what your fave workout videos are. Share the love. Lose the fat!

A New Course Of Action

This plateau is weighing heavily on my mind. It’s 2008, and I’ll be damned if I go through another summer wearing black or 3/4 length sleeves. Here’s my short-term game plan:

  1. Keep a food diary for one week to really assess what I’m stuffing down my throat.
  2. Amp up my workouts. I’m currently on Level 2 of Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred. It’s 20 minutes of hell and back, but I plan to do two workouts a day: I’ll do the advanced Level 1 in the morning and the beginner Level 2 in the evening. That will be a total of 40 minutes of exercise a day.
  3. Stop eating by 8:30 pm. I have a sneaking suspicion that this could be part of the problem.
  4. Drink 1 glass of water before every meal to not only hydrate but aid in feeling fuller faster.
  5. Hit the sack no later than 10:30pm. I’ll aim to actually be in the bed by 10:00pm. This is gonna be my biggest challenge.

I welcome your tips and tricks that help you stay on course. I’ll holla……….
