On Twitter, I announced that I’m starting a personal challenge and I invited my followers to join in. I’m going to use this tumblr (which I’ve neglected lately) to keep people informed.
What is #SexyShred?
For one month, we are going to commit to CLEAN EATING, and regular exercise. Regular is defined as no less than 4x a week. You can go to the gym, workout at home, workout outside, whatever you need to do, but it must be an hour of rigorous exercise at LEAST 4 days each week.
Here is a list of clean eating resources online. Get prepared NOW, so you have no excuses when it is time to begin. Maybe you need to wean yourself off over the next couple of weeks.
We will begin on 9/4, the day after Labor Day and will continue until 10/4.
You will commit to:
1. Personally tracking your weight and measurements. Get a scale and measuring tape now. How can you measure progress if you don’t… measure… progress? Weigh in every Tuesday. Measure first Tuesday(9/4) and on October 4.
2. Journaling your food intake. Get a notebook or use an app like MyFitnessPal. Tracking what you eat keeps you conscious of your intake. You can see where you did well and fell off. Post your meals on Twitter or Instagram with #SexyShred tage, photos or descriptions (ex: Spinach, grilled chicken, sliced avocado for lunch #SexyShred)
3. Tracking your exercise. Again either write it down or use an app like MyFitnessPal, CardioTrainer, or Nike, etc. Post your stats on Twitter each day with #SexyShread hashtag
4. Joining at least 2 of 4 #SexyShred chats that will take place during the challenge. This will be a chance to talk with others and share ups and downs, offer support, and motivate each other.
5. Being honest. Don’t lie to use because you’re only lying to yourself. How will you get support if you don’t own up to your struggles? We’re in this together.
1 Chance to reset and bounce back from the summer.
