I worked pretty hard, but I was by no means perfect - I cheated a lot - but I know I won’t continue to get results if I do that, so I’m tightening the reins and being pretty strict.
Here is what I did:
Diet: tons of fruit, small breakfast and lunch, larger dinner - this works better for me, I also keep a food journal and track my intake every day. I aim for 1200-1400 calories and I am just staring the bikini model program.
Exercise: I run every other day, 2-5 miles currently. On low mileage days, I add something else. On off days, I walk 4-5 miles, or do a long turbofire workout - this is an exercise DVD set sold on beachbody.com.
That is pretty much it. I also have a Bodymedia Link arm band. They are kind of spendy and you have to pay 6 dollars a month for service, but I think they are seriously awesome and mine has helped me a ton! I think the most important thing is you journal, track your calories, and be honest with yourself.
Stay Healthy and Happy!
