Anyway, back to the pursuit of happiness, a little hobby of mine.
But I want to be fit. I am at an average weight for my height, but don't have any muscle tone!
(Really I am just scared to death of finding myself middle aged one day and 50 pounds overweight and having no idea how that ever even happened...and having a really really long haul to get anywhere near fit from that awful place.)
So I started working out now, while things are still pretty youthful and resilient. It's been about two weeks.
I'm doing the infamous P90X program with Matt and I will tell you that even after this short time, I am seeing a difference in tone and shape of my core and arms and legs. Impressive!
And dang have I been hungry!
Simultaneous with the workout program, you follow a protein based diet for the first four weeks. I find myself just famished, craving those protein shakes and bars and literally shoving salad in my face! I like having the strict diet because it eliminates any guess work or guilt about eating.
I just follow the rules. Simple.
Just to be clear about my goals here: I want to be somewhere in between the waif-like models we all know and loathe, and the uber buff chicks who can end up looking too masculine (see examples below).
So far so good, and I will keep you posted, wish me luck and perseverance!
