vital juice bikini body challenge

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

exactly 46 days from today, on july 2nd, i will turn 30 years old.

let. the. countdown. begin.


when a milestone such as turning 30 is quickly approaching one tends to take sometime to reflect on their life thus far.


but not me.


i'm more concerned about looking as hot as possible at my birthday party.

i've been trying to slowly but surely get in better shape for awhile now. since january i've been doing a biggest loser competition with friends, specifically ang, where we not only have pride but money on the line.

the biggest loser competition is officially over june 1st and i've lost nearly 30 pounds in the process, which is awesome, but nowhere near the original weight loss goal i set for myself in january.


so it's time to kick it up a notch and the big 3-0 is a perfect milestone to wrap a second challenge around.


last week my sissy sent me a link of a 6 week workout program that her and her friend amy were starting this week. i checked it out, it seemed legit, and would definitely be a challenge for me as for the last few months i've really only been doing cardio and arms.

sign. me. up. (i also rooked my roommate the klutz into doing it with me too, btw)

the workout plan came from a website called vital juice which from looking briefly through the site seems like some kind of health website that sends out daily emails about fitness, nutrition, beauty and wellness.

i sure hope they know what they are talking about.

yesterday was officially day one of the vital juice bikini body challenge, a six week workout program that promises to "remake your shape" - you can get all the details on how to follow the program at the above link or by downloading the pdf here.

considering i'm typing this from bed and my bum/thighs/arms are beyond sore (in a good way), i'm thinking day one was a success.

sidenote: i'm not writing this post today to necessarily try to get you to participate in the vital juice workout with me, but more so to hold myself accountable. unless you really want to, if so let me know :)

so wish me luck... perhaps i'll look like the picture on the website by the time i'm done!

hahahahahahaha. wouldn't THAT be the day?

  1. Looks like a pretty good program. Do a set of exercises for a couple weeks and just as your body is getting used to it, change it up. Nice. I hope you meet your goals, though losing 30 pounds since the beginning of the year is worth celebrating in and of itself!

  2. I always love the idea of a workout plan - especially the structure - but then I get frustrated if I miss a day/fall behind/etc.

    Good luck, though, and congrats on what you've done already! That's amazing!

  6. You can do it!!

    I started doing "hot yoga" every week and I've noticed I've definitely lost inches, but I haven't melted off all the pounds I want to lose...yet. I'm feeling positive because I can see results, so I'm sticking with it.

  7. 30 is AWESOME. Trust me, I know. And I know you look fabulous!

    Don't underestimate the weight you have already lost, even if you haven't reached your goal. 30lbs is great lady. Don't forget that.

  13. Losing 30 is amazing. I was home last weekend & saw two of my old friends from high school who used to be bigger than me - & now they've both lost so much weight, & they look amazing, & I felt awful about myself & my body. That was, I think, yet another piece of the inspiration I need to really get myself going - & to get healthy myself. Maybe I won't lose wight, but it's time to get healthy.

    In other words, WAY TO GO, & good luck with the rest. <3
