I found this piece on Women’s Health and it really caught my interest. I’m looking to lose about 10 – 15 lbs in the span of 2 months (just in time for my trip to Germany to see the boyfriend), but even if you don’t have anything planned, who doesn’t want a hot summer bod?
Women’s Health has planned out an exercise regime in two types: one for people who don’t currently run, and one for those who are already in the groove of it. You can also find a meal plan to help guide you on what foods to eat, how many calories to intake and what is ‘safe’ to munch on.
I always end up tweaking these plans to suit my lifestyle. I run for more than 30 minutes a day, and usually stay in the gym for around 2 hours messing about with weights and whatnot. I also don’t strictly follow the food plan, because I don’t always have what they recommend in my kitchen. I just substitute different things that have around the same calorie count, but it’s helpful to have an outline.
So come on ladies, get moving! Lose those pounds!
