I have a confession to make. At this very moment I’m not the Fit Mommy, that I would like to be and that I know I can become. As I stated before somewhere and as you can probably see of my photos, I have some extra “baby” weight I really need and want to lose. I know it will help my overall health and my self-confidence a lot!
So the moment has come, when I’m saying WHAT’S ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
Starting tomorrow, I’m setting out on a quest…
How to Lose 20 Pounds in 30 Days
I must say I’m not so familiar with measuring my body parts in order to follow the progress of losing weight and shaping up. In the past I only used my scale to monitor my weight, every other aspect I only monitored subjectively, by taking a look at me in the mirror and asking myself, how do I feel physically and mentally. But I’m willing to do it now just for illustration.
So here are my current DAY #0 MEASURES:
- Weight: 66 kg (145,5 lbs)
- Waist: 99 cm (39 inch)
- Thighs: 58 cm (23 inch)
- Hips: 104 cm (41 inch)
Should I feel embarrassed? 🙂 I think not. The reality is that having three small children, among them twins, can be very challenging for some time. But now it’s time to take care of myself some more.
Weight Loss Plan for a Busy Mommy
Based on my previous experience with dieting and fitness I have made out a Weight Loss Plan for Busy Mommy for me (and it should work out for you too, as it is quite easy to follow 🙂 ).
I’m quite curious how will it end up, although I’m almost certain I will be able to meet my Goals using this Plan!
You can imagine that I don’t have too much extra time to take long exercising lessons in nearby town, to drive there or to cook too much extra food for me only. So I developed some easy to follow and by my experience very efficient steps.
I will be explaining every single step more in upcoming post, so stay tuned. 😉
1. drink juice of one lemon with warm water every morning to wake up your digestion
2. eliminate sugar, sweets and all kinds of unhealthy snacks
3. drink 2,5 liters of water a day
4. reduce size of your usual meals by half
5. eat 5 meals a day
6. do NOT eat your children’s leftovers
1. do stretch, power and balance exercises for 20 minutes every day
2. run 5 km (3 miles) 3 days a week
3. go for an active walk 2 days a week
I’m not a fan of measuring, but if I want to do it right, I will have to have some focal points. I will do the measuring every 5 days just to keep track. Also I will be posting and sharing my progress with all of you.
What will I be measuring?
Weight and width of my waist, thighs and hips. I find these areas to be most compromised 🙂 in my case. But I can imagine I’m not the only one with this problem… 🙂
OK, maybe I’ll have to get myself a digital scale someday soon … 😉
My Personal GOALS
Based on my previous experience with losing fat and building some muscles I defined my personal Goals of this project.
MY DAY #30 MEASURES WILL BE:
- Weight: 57 kg (125,5 lbs)
- Waist: 89 cm (35 inch)
- Thighs: 54 cm (21,3 inch)
- Hips: 98 cm (38,6 inch)
I’m more than sure that I’ll be able to shape up in 30 days following my plan, accompanied by my other everyday activities as a busy mommy. And I will become the FIT MOMMY I deserve to be!
If you want you can always join me on my quest and start following the plan yourself! Leave a comment below or write me to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll be more than happy to discuss it with you!
