The Arochas Are On A Mission...

Well, well...Jeff's birthday is vastly approaching and both of us want to be leaner. So we've set out on a mission to lose 10lbs each by his birthday...June 18.

That gives us 7 weeks to do some DAMAGE!

While in the shower this morning, the place I tend to do most of my great thinking, we chatted about how we wanted to go about this mission. Here's our game plan:

1. Workout 6x per week
2. Replace 1 meal per day with Shakeology
3. Eat lean, green and clean for dinner - no carbs!

So today is the day we start. My weight this morning was 155.2. I'll check with Jeff again but he mentioned his was probably 225.

I've also started the TIU Bikini Challenge so that should help me along the way!

Good luck to all who are getting fit not only for Summer but for all the other seasons of the year! We deserve to be the best version of ourselves!

End the Trend ;)

Day 3 of 30 Day Challenge

It's day 3 people! And I must say that I'm a happy camper...

I started the Tone It Up 5 Day Slim Down on Monday and I'm down 2 pounds as of this morning! My upper body is extremely sore from the past 2 days of workouts so today I'm going to keep it to just cardio. I think I'm going to do either Fire 55 EZ or Fire 45 of Turbo Fire when I get home.

Here is what I have on the menu for today:

6:45 am - Bombshell Spell
7:30 am - Pineapple Pancake w/extra pineapple on top & green tea
10:30 am - Banana
1:00 pm - Spicy Mustard Wrap, Pink Lady Apple, Kombucha
3:30 pm - Greenberry Shakeology w/almond milk & 1 stick of Sugar Free On-the-Go Raspberry Lemonade drink mix (Target's Market Pantry)

**All of the recipes are from the Beach Babe Edition of the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan.

IF YOU STILL WANT TO JOIN MY 30 DAY CHALLENGE YOU CAN! Start today with making a change for better health...
