My Rebel Strength Guide from Nerd Fitness is here! I am SO excited!
So what does this mean for me? Starting April 11th (one week from today), I will be documenting my journey through the Rebel Strength Guide for six weeks. I will take my weight, measurements and pictures to document the start of the journey, and then do the same for each week of the journey, to document my successes in measurable ways. I'll also continue to blog how it's going here.
For the next week, I'll be working towards becoming familiar with the eating program as well as the workout plan. For me, I'll be following the "weight loss" eating program and the Body Weight Brigade workout plan. MWF will be Body Weight Strength Workouts. The other days I'll do some cardio-fun. I'm thinking of my triathlete type cardio (swim = elliptical, bike and treadmill).
What will I be eating? Fruits, Veggies, Protein and good Fats. The eating program is a Paleo based eating program, eating the foods our ancestors ate. I've eaten this way in the past and don't mind doing it again. Sure, I love breads and whatnots, but I've been restricting them for a while, as I know I binge on them and when I don't eat them as much, I don't crave them as much. I also feel SO much better when I eat cleanly. He does say, if you choose, you can have a "cheat day", where you can eat what you feel you would like. I may start off with a "cheat meal", where one day a week, one meal a week, if I've been craving Pizza, I'll have pizza. Likely, I'll make this meal Friday night dinner, as it works well with traveling to take Jonas to his father or our date night, that we normally go out.
I am so excited about this! I look forward to seeing where I go and sharing my thoughts as I go through it.
