The transformation of me

{April 23, 2012}   Monday again….nope it’s Motivation Monday

Happy Monday folks, it’s another beautiful day. It’s kinda hard sitting here looking out of this huge window at the sunshine, makes me wish  was outside. Anyhoo I really had a kinda lazy weekend when it come to working out, but I still ate well. I didn’t just go crazy! You know the hardest thing about this transformation is that I wonder how well I will do with the limited amount of sleep that I get.  Typically I get about 5 hours nightly,( 7 month old) but how well will my nutrition routine work if I am not getting adequate sleep? Just a thought.

So on Friday I signed up for this beach body challenge through It is awesome because you have access to the Tone it Up girls and the Tone it Up community for motivation, updates, give-a-ways etc..  Now their challenge is for 8 weeks and I am sure it will be difficult because, for one, the challenge you to get up 30 min early at least 4 time a week and fit in a morning workout, and secondly they want you to eat Lean, green, and clean.  Now this proves even more difficult because I am a slave to processed food like chips, diet sodas, juice, etc, but you can’t eat anything that has been chemically processed.  I know that this sounds difficult but I am up for the challenge because I know that with such a drastic change like that in my diet I am sure to see the results that I am looking for.  Now don’t get me wrong when I say that something will be difficult that doesn’t mean that I won’t succeed of try, it just means that I have to put even more of myself into reaching that goal.  I know that joining the Beach Body challenge is what I am supposed to be doing because I received conformation when I went to FB and clicked on a page that I become a fan of (but never checked out). It’s called Black Women do Work Out.  This by far has been the most motivational/inspirational page that I have been to period.  There are all of these beautiful women just like me that are on a journey to better themselves physically, and health wise.  There are women who have lost over a hundred pounds, some who are 50+ but look no older than 30, some who have just started and some who have grafted some of the hottest bodies I have ever seen.  Anyway many of them also talk about the benefits of eating Lean, clean, and green.  So I am pumped.  I plan on posting my progress on their page so that I can be one of the lovely ladies featured there to motivate others.  Let me tell you that you can do it, today is your day to stop making excuses for being overweight. When we were created we were not created FAT, that is not God’s best for you, if it was you wouldn’t have all the medical issues. Just start eating healthy and walking daily and you may be able to get off of your meds one day. Commit to making your life healthy and being happy.

So what do you think readers, is rigorous exercise the only and best way to lose weight or is there something to this no more processed food?  Processed food is: refined sugar, chips, cookies, white bread, soda (yes even diet!), processed meat, anything where chemicals are added to it, no caffeine as well. If you can’t pronounce the names on the labels do eat it.  Anyone interested in joining me on this challenge, I can’t wait to see the results.  I am going to look so good Serena Williams is going to ask me what have I been doing.  P.S. My  body type is similar to her’s and I want my tight and toned just like her’s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would definitely need breast implants though, I’m just sayin””….
