I made it. The first weekend on the Busy Babe Sugar Cleanse went pretty well! It was a bit harder to stick to my meal timing with a flexible schedule on the weekend but I fit it all in.
I have had a breakthrough in terms of my fitness goals, and the Cronometer app was the difference.
As promised I’m sharing the outcome of my 45-day Athletic Apex Transformation Challenge. In only 45 days, I managed to gain 1.24 pounds of muscle, reduce my body fat from 15.2 percent to 14.9 percent.
My fitness challenge is nearing the end. I’m reflecting back on the journey and looking forward to the final results.
I love to lift. Nearly every day, the first thing I do when I wake up – 5 a.m. on weekdays – is head to the gym. Currently that health club is Athletic Apex – New York, located in DestiNY USA in Syracuse, New York. This place is amazing but part of its draw is the specially-trained personal trainers it has on staff.
The start of a new year means rededicating yourself to whatever dreams, goals and objectives you want to achieve. For me, a new year happens twice annually – fall, when school is back in session, and Jan. 1. This year, my New Year’s resolution is to attempt to establish realistic goals that I can reach over the course of the entire year, or at least that is my overarching commitment to myself.
New season means new busyness and with that comes a few new workout challenges. Recently, I’ve been finding that I’m absolutely exhausted.
It’s back-to-school season. The kids start next week and I have already finished one week of teaching at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. For me, this time of year is a reset, much like the New Year is for most. It’s a way to get back into a routine and try to recommit or commit to something new. This year, my new commitment involves trying for the 98th time to be better about my diet.
Now that you’ve read about my workout and nutrition/supplement plans, I thought I’d list out some things that have helped me meet my goals and stay on this health and fitness journey without falling off the wagon!
My fitness journey has been a long and winding one but I’ve learned a great deal over the years. I’m sharing it with my readers in the hopes I can motivate them as so many have inspired me.
