Hello Fitness Friends! I wanted to let you know about a Get Ripped Challenge I started with my coworkers. The goal is to lose fat and gain muscle. The contestants have 90 days. I decided to join them because I think it’d be fun to see what I could challenge my body to do in 90 days. I want to be lean. So, Monday I started P90X 2. It’s far more challenging than P90X. Can I do it? I believe I can (I am going to do everything I can to finish).
The Get Ripped Challenge is split into three categories.
Women (get lean)
Men (get ripped add mass)-for those with less than 20 percent body fat.
Men (get ripped and lose fat)
I’m excited to see the body transformations. Some are doing. P90x, some 21 day fix and boot camp, some Jillian Michael’s program, some weights and their own program.
Want to join us? It’s 90 days to putting down the cake and ice cream and committing to challenging your body. I will post updates over the next 86 days and tips. Granted this wouldn’t be an official Beach Body Contest, go to their website (www.beachbody.com) to win some incredible prizes, but it would be hopefully incentive to work hard! It’s 90 days…just in time for summer.
I’m excited to try new recipes P90X 2 came with a great recipe booklet. I’ve been creating my own recipes too! I am a huge fan of seafood. Salmon is a staple right now. It’s a fatty fish, yet it’s loaded with Omega 3 fatty acids. Vegetables are our friends. As for seasoning, lemon pepper and lemons go a long way!
I’m also trying to add more protein and eliminate sugar (white sugar).
The biggest challenge this week is eating enough calories. Vegetables and fruits do not have tons of calories and it fills you up. I’ve cut out grains, pasta, and most dairy.
Well, my friends, I will keep you posted! I hope you have a wonderful weekend. 🙂
