May has been a pretty hectic month! A wedding, a business trip, a trip for a graduation, and family in town. To say that being on track has been hard is an understatement. But I’ve been trying! I have been bodyrocking when I’m able and walking. But it’s time to focus on diet. I’ve been feeling very blah and it’s time for a re-focus. My friend is doing a low carb challenge and I’ve decided to join her for June. There are several reasons for this. The main one being that low carb is the one program that I’ve done that really worked well for me. As in I got the results not typical results. I also find it easier to stay on than any other diet. I remember stopping Atkins in college only because it was too hard at the time to do living in a dorm eating dorm food. I didn’t really have the ability (or a kitchen) to do it right. I haven’t seriously done Atkins since.
I’m not sure if I’m going to do Atkins induction or if I’m going to make rules for myself to eat lower carb. I’m kind of terrified of going on a structured diet because I’ve failed at every attempt. At the same time I’m looking forward to having a structure again, something to lean on. The only thing that I want that really isn’t on Atkins induction is fruit. I’m not looking forward to giving up fruit for any stretch of time. But I could do the 2 weeks and see how that goes. I can add fruit back in (some fruits anyway) after that so I won’t be permanently away from it.
BodyRock has gone well. I haven’t done the May challenge as completely as I’d like just because of all the being out of town. I have done the first week and loved it. I think they have a June challenge planned, so I’ll keep with the May workouts until that gets a few days posted.
Low carbing plus bodyrockign should make my July 1st progress pics awesome. I hope. I’m leaving for the beach in 1.5 months so I would also like to have some amazing progress by then!
