Day 1: Ripped in 30

Starting weight:  112.6 lbs

*The DVD contains 4 different work-outs...
*I'll be exercising 6 days a week, taking a day to recover...

An overall breakdown of "Ripped in 30":

*3 circuits
*3-2-1 system; 3 minutes of strength training, 2 minutes of cardio, and 1 minute of abs.  You repeat exercises twice throughout the video...
*You only need a set of weights - I use two 5-lb dumbbells

Drop by tomorrow to read a more detailed review of Week 1...

Diet Guidelines

After splurging non-stop this weekend, I definitely need to start eating clean again. 

My Dieting Rules:

1.  Acceptable beverages: water, coffee, tea, and milk (skim or 1%).

2.  Eliminate sweets entirely.

3.  Three solid meals a day.  Each meal must contain palm-size amounts of lean proteins, starches, fruits, and vegetables.  I'll REFUSE to starve myself to lose weight.  I'm going to do it the RIGHT way...=)

4.  Try to avoid processed foods.  "If you can't farm it, fish it, or hunt it, then scrap it..." This is by far the most difficult rule on my list!

5.  Incorporate healthy fats into meals, i.e. slices of avocado in your sandwich/salad, natural peanut butter with apple wedges, etc.

6.  One cheat meal a week.  I mean, I need SOMETHING to look forward to!  =)

My goal is to become extremely FIT.  I don't just want to lose weight - numbers don't mean jack. Anyways, I'll be tackling several different fitness challenges this year; I'll make sure to update you guys with my progress as often as I can.  I start Jillian Michaels' "Ripped in 30" tomorrow... =)
