Next Chapter

Today has officially been 1 month of working out!  We started with Breeze on the 28th of May and we did it for four weeks.  That's working out at least 4-6 times a week.  Twice a week with him for an hour and then the rest on our own at the gym. 

For that first month we've primarily been working on increasing our strength, motor skills, and building some muscle.  This next month is going to be different and that's what I'm excited about.  Breeze and his trainers are helping us to revamp our nutrition, our mental attitudes, and our bodies.  We are also starting circuit training!  That means no talking during our workouts, haha, just a lot of heavy breathing and sweating. 

Today we we had a great work out doing some up-downs, throwing heavy weights, and working our arms.  Everyday is something new.  We also got our new menu for this week.  I'll show you a sample below for the first couple of days.  Apparently this is a great way to boost our metabolism and keep our bodies guessing.  So for the rest of this month we are going to be experimenting with a different menu which Breeze and his helpers are going to prepare for us.  He told us today to be prepared to see some weight loss!  I'm all over that that like white on rice!  I'm so excited to start seeing some weight loss and to see what other changes my body has in store for me.  I'll make sure to keep you posted.
