Today I began the Fernwood Fitness 28 Day Breakthru! The plan runs over 28 days and includes meal and exercise plans.
I spent yesterday at Caribbean Gardens stocking up on my fruit and vegetables and then headed over to Woolworths for the rest. I was emailed a well thought out shopping list with plenty of fruits and vegetables plus my favourites- almond milk & tofu.
I’m following the Pear Shape Vegetarian plan. There’s a variety of meal plans to chose from depending on your body type- Ruler, Apple & Pear. It’s ideal to speak to your medical advisor if you need to change anything due to intolerances or food choices such as veganism.
Day One began with a fat free natural yoghurt with mixed seeds followed by snacks of an orange and almonds.
Head over to my Instagram- Halfway2Healthy to see my struggle with the today’s exercise- a jog/run on the treadmill for 50 minutes!
I worked out twice at the gym today, a session in the morning & then one in the evening. If I’m going to do this, then I’m going to give it my all!!
My filling lunch- egg white & salad wholemeal wrap
Preparing kidney & soy beans for dinner tonight, paired with brown rice & mixed green vegetables.
Already I’ve been connecting with other participants online & the support & motivation is overwhelming. It’s great to be able to log into my Breakthru account & read all the well wishes & messages.
I will talk more about the 28 Day BreakThru, the Fernwood Angels & my progress in upcoming entries.
DAY 3 & 4 of Fernwood’s
28 Day Breakthru- UPDATE
So far so good- a loss of one whole kilo after day two…pretty happy!
The workouts have been great and I’ve been able to learn a few more exercises.
I wasn’t able to take a Pump Class as advised on Day 3 so I did a 50 minute treadmill workout and also used some weights.
The online support has been incredible and I’ve been able to continually connect with others, share photos & motivational quotes. I’m following the meal plans to a tee, and the foods are filling and enjoyable.
