The Next Chapter! 90 Day Challenge, Day 1!

EEK!  I have to admit, I am a bit scared.  I am really putting myself out there front and center this time, for the whole world to see.  I hope with the support of all of you, I will find out EXACTLY what I can do! NO EXCUSES!

I did a little research, and have decided to use Body By Vi products(One shake a day after my workout and their Vita-Paks.) during this self-proclaimed “Personal Best” Challenge.  I will be planning my meals, based on Pauline Nordin’s, Fighter Diet Concept, using her Food Pyramid.  And I will be arranging my own lifting workouts with a 4 days a week split, and doing FIT and Zumba classes at Legacy 2-3 days a week.

Also during this time, I will be planning the Run For The Cross race, so if I miss a few entries here and there…I am ASLEEP!  LOL!

I am starting today with Shoulders and Abs, and will generally post my workout after I do it.

Here is what a basic day in my diet will look like:

Breakfast – oat bran with wheat bran and a 1/4 C coconut milk and 5 egg whites

Lunch – a large spinach salad with bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, and mushrooms, and a small can tuna with 1/4 LF cottage cheese and 1T mustard.  Before you say EEWWW…..try it!  It makes a great tuna salad, and if you put it on the spinach salad, you don’t need extra dressing:)

I will have a pre and/or post workout protein shake(depending on if I am lifting or doing cardio)

Supper – chicken breast(lean protein), steamed broccoli and a small salad(veggies) and Miracle Noodles(carb-free pasta to have the “illusion” of eating something starchy).

There is room for one more snack in here somewhere, which will usually be some FF Greek yogurt and some almonds.

Calorie total goal for the day is between 1700-1900.

Sorry I didn’t get any “starting” pics taken, but here is one from this weekend at the Bridge the Gap being my normal “goofball” self:)

I really haven’t changed from my last posted progress pics on 3-31-12.  I will get a starting weight and my measurements and get them posted tomorrow.  Wish me luck!  90 days from today is August 11th!  Time to see what I am made of:)  #norecess

  1. Brenda, you are an inspiration. I know you can do anything you set your mind to. Do you have specific goals to reach during these 90 days?


    1. I really just want to lean out an achieve the physique that I have been so close to several times, but then stop just short. The fear of success seems to always hold me back. This challenge with myself is my way of trying to finally face this fear. It isn’t about “getting skinny”, and it isn’t about anyone or anything else…I am going to achieve this for ME!
