It’s been eight weeks since the floor literally blew up at Gordon Studio.
The doors are closed, much of the equipment sold, and everything I kept is put away in its place.
It has been wonderful to get back in the gym, and return to the training that changed my body and my life eight years ago.
So many times, I have pursued the latest thing in diet and exercise in order to get leaner faster.
Every time I have had to face the fact that I can’t get greedy and try to cut my calories too low, while making my training sessions too long.
In my case, that always leads to rebellious over eating, skipped workouts, and beating myself up for fooling myself again.
Does any of that sound familiar to you?
I don’t stay down for long though. My solution is to get back to what works:
No sugar, grains, or processed vegetable oils in my food plan, a limit of twenty grams of carbs per day until my appetite is obviously reduced, and three weight lifting sessions per week without fail.
I add bodyweight training, yoga, or dance class two times per week, and I make sure I do activities I enjoy on my two recovery days like gardening, walking with my husband and son, and training and romping with my dogs.
The one thing that guarantees that I will take all of these actions is accountability from a like minded group of individuals who are pursuing clear fitness goals.
If this style of health training sounds good to you, this is my invitation to join me starting September 6th for a four week accountability challenge in the closed Facebook group: Sugar Freedom/LBD Challenge. The group is free to join.
