Pre-New Years Resolution Challenge/ Mission: Socialite
Hello, Everyone! I have decided that I need to make a pre-resolution, and I would love to invite you to join me! This pre-resolution has been inspired by my recent decision on working my way up to socialite status in my city, Charlotte, NC. Why do I all of a sudden want to become a socialite? It's not so that I can be invited to all of the best parties or top restaurants, or anything. It's for the sake of my non-profit organization, Party For Autism. I feel that in order for Party For Autism to have the most success, it needs a well known leader standing behind it. Therefore, I will be dedicating my time in becoming a socialite, and showing you guys every step of the way!
First step on the socialite checklist is outward appearance and inward health. I have been struggling with 5-10 pounds in my mid section that I would love to finally get rid of in my mid section. Therefore, I have put together a health plan that will help me beautify both my insides and my outsides!
Weight: 134.5 lb
Waist: 30 inches
Goal Weight: 127 by January 6th
Goal Waist: 27 inches by January 6th
Below is the diet plan that I have been following. I've been on the diet already for 3 days, and I started at 137, so I think it's working! It could just be water weight though.
Here are the rules for Joining my Socialite Diet Challenge:
Two Week Diet Challenge:
*Calorie intake: between 1250-1400 calories per day
(it is unhealthy for women to eat less that 1000 calories a day, so don't modify this too much!)
*No Meat- I am allowed one cheat on Christmas though ;)
*2.5-3 litres of water
* split calories into 5-6 meals a day (3 meals and 2 snacks)
*No Fast Food (no exceptions!)
Some foods that I have included to my diet are Special K cereals, Special K protein bars, yogurt, cheese and crackers, and fruits. The biggest thing that has helped me so far is writing down everything that I eat and the calories that go with each item. That way, at the end of the day, if I'm short a few calories, I can sneak in a piece of chocolate! Yum!
Two Week Exercise Challenge:
I have decided that since I am a dancer at heart, the best exercise for me is Zumba! Plus, on the forum boards that I've read, woman have reported losing more than 1000 calories from 1 hour of intense Zumba. The only problem, is that I'm not a member of any gym, and don't have the money to do so. Therefore, I have resorted to the wonderful world of Youtube! Below are my two favorite Brazillian Zumba videos on youtube that I put on repeat and do for 2 hours a day; one hour early in the day, one hour in the evening.
The teacher's name is Helio, and he is amazing!
Anyone up for my challenge? If so, I would love to do check-ins, and possibly have a prize for the winner ;)
*I will also be launching a new series called Mission: Socialite that will give you guys the tricks that I'm using in my hopes of becoming a local socialite!
