What am I doing?

Just this morning I had a friend ask me how I was losing weight?
Is there a specific program, diet, or workout that I'm doing?

I've been doing it the old fashion way for the most part.

I stick between 1000-1200 calories a day
and I work out 5-6 days a week...7 days now in June..thanks to the June Boom :)

Back in January, when I started my weight loss journey, I did SlimQuick's Gentle Cleanse.
I didn't notice a huge difference in weight loss, not anymore than I think I would have lost without it, but I didn't feel so sluggish after I finished it..but at the same time, I had been eating better and exercising during that time, so it could have just been from that.

I posted here an example of what my daily diet kind of looks like.

For exercise I run, walk, or do a workout DVD... The Firm's 500 calorie burn or Gold's Gym Stay Ball routine. I got a deal on some passes to Gold's Gym and will occasionally go with a friend while we use those up...I loved the spin class.

So that's it in a nutshell, no fad diet and no specific workout series DVDs, although I wouldn't mind trying Jillian Michael's 30 day shred or something like p90x someday.

Do you have any "tricks" you are doing to lose weight or just old fashion diet and exercise?

  1. Although I am currently doing Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred, I'm basically doing the same thing you are. I'm only beginning though, so I still have 48 lbs. to go!

    Just wanted to let you know that I'm a new follower and looking forward to reading more!
