UPDATE 07.25.08 – Added more documents to the list of materials. Remember you can have little cheats here and there. Gotta live life! I’m picking one cheat day a week. By cheating I don’t mean have 3 gallons of ice cream but a source of carbs you don’t regularly consume (for me that is sweet potato oven ‘fries’), your favorite indulgence, a beer, a SMALL plate of pasta, whatever floats your boat… As long as you follow the diet 80% of the time you are good.
ORIGINAL POST STARTS HERE:
So yesterday we were checking out Suisen’s ass and legs. In a good positive way people…geez you are all such perverts!
We’ve been doing this for a while (cool it with the choice comments ya hear me?, cough***gutter minds***cough), since she started having Zone meals delivered to her doorstep a bit longer than a month ago, and weight started to drop off her frame like buttah. What did the rest of us do? We showered her with compliments while making empty promises of starting the diet at some point.
Well that point is here! Enough with making excuses, myself included. It is always “I have a trip coming up,” or “I got invited to a wedding,” or “I’m so busy I don’t have time to eat right,” or “the cat ate my apples.” Pish posh square. Life happens. We need to start making choices now. Every choice we make affects us later (reflecting on our well being or our asses).
On that note I’m throwing down the gauntlet. The diet challenge starts Monday 07.28.08 and will run until the end of the cycle. Everyone is invited to participate. You can choose any diet you want (I can only help with the Zone or Paleo diets though). Did I mention I am now certified in CrossFit Nutrition Fundamentals Level I? Booyah baby!
- Weigh yourself every week at the start of class on Friday (I will bring the scale of record)
- Keep a food log and turn it in at the end of the week (email is fine). No excuses. You get one day grace to turn it in or your ass is toast! (or toasty? as it will be punishable by 20 burpees warmup at the start of the next class)
- Take a start and ending picture of yourself with as little clothes as you feel comfortable showing publicly (I probably just opened a big can of worms he he)
- Do “Annie are you ok?” on Tuesday 07.29.08 and 08.29.08. This is going to be our benchmark workout (you don’t need to know yet what it is because you are always ready to bring it, right? right!)
1 point for each pound loss and 1 point for seconds/5 time differential on “Annie are you ok?” For example: If you lose 5 pounds and your workout time is 65 seconds faster, your total score is 18.
1st place – Cycle 6 is free!
2nd place – ½ off Cycle 6
