March workout plan

Since I explained most of everything on my weight loss update post, this one will be pretty short and sweet.

I'm cutting out the jumping jacks from my routine. Mainly because I had to do so many in one day, but also because I don't really feel a need to do them. I know I said they were supposed to help the glutes, but the part it helps is not the part I'm really concerned about.

As far as my routine goes, I sort of kind of came up with this one my self. It's basically the same workout challenges before but tweaked to my liking.

Weight Loss Update

Okay, so I know I should have posted this a while ago. I know this. But life never quite works out how we want it to, right? Anyway... Let's talk progress.

First of, let me begin by saying I didn't complete my workout like I should have. I did horrible to be honest. I only made it through the first two weeks of Hip Hop Abs and 2 weeks and a half of all the challenges. I could lie and say my schedule prevented me from doing it, but honestly, I blame the jumping jacks. I know jumping jacks aren't hard to do, but doing so many at a time just made me feel discouraged. I'm cutting them out of my routine for next month, but I'll explain that in another post.

As far as the diet goes, I stuck to it for the most part. I mean no cheating, no shortcuts, no games. I'm actually pretty proud of myself. But I did break it the day before Valentine's day and I haven't been back on it since. I got sick the following week and had absolutely no appetite and then once I got better I started eating pretty badly.

Fat Fast: Get Your Body Into Ketosis!

Hello all! I actually have about a week's worth of work that I need to complete in a short matter of time, but since I love all 1 of my followers (Basically 0 since it's only my friend that follows me) I figured I'd make this post now, before I forget.

DISCLAIMER: DO NOT TRY DOING THIS FAST IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY ON THE ATKINS DIET OR IF YOU DO NOT PLAN ON TRANSITIONING INTO A LOW CARB DIET FIRST. JUMPING FROM A HIGH CARB DIET TO A FAT FAST CAN CAUSE YOUR BODY HARM
As I previously posted, my diet plan for this time being is the Atkins. Within the first few days my body immediately went into ketosis (fat burning mode for those of you not up on the low carb lingo) and my keto strips were dark purple. I mean the darkest it could go. But a week and a half later and a couple pounds lighter, my body would just not get into ketosis. I originally thought it was because I only had a few more pounds left to lose that my body wasn't able to get into it as fast as before. However, after all this research I've done I believe it's because I wasn't getting enough carbs, and the carbs I were getting weren't really coming from vegetables. Anyway, back to the point, I was really in a slump about my keto strips (they were completely pale) so I went to my best friend, Google.
