I can never do the same fitness plan/workout for a long time. I get bored, so I'm constantly changing my workout plans. I can do it if it's a short term plan. I plan my workouts for a week at a time and that seems to work the best for me. My work schedule is never the same and because I work nights it's hard to workout at the same time everyday, so I take it day by day and week by week.
Right now I'm counting calories and limiting my sugar intake (I like sweet things way too much). I'm trying to eat healthier and focusing on vegetables and protein.
So days I work or days in between work, I do strengthening and/or abs, usually something off of Pinterest. It's a see-how-I-feel-that-day sort of plan. I'm not so rigid with the workouts but I am with the diet. That's where I struggle, but it's what makes me lose faster. Go figure.
So far (I've been doing this for about a week) it's been real good and I feel real good. I use MyFitnessPal to track my diet and I make sure I do some sort of workout daily. I definitely feel more energetic and that's saying something. My motives are to feel good and then to look good. It takes work, but I want to enjoy it! And I am!
