Well the journey continues.
Our Road to Health, Fitness and Tiny-Bottoms has a new traveller. (Although Ambegela and I doubt her fat cell count is sufficient enough to be a member of Blubber & Lard, as she is a little waif of a speck but however we love our Becky-Lou (again names changed to protect the innocent- this name could change further!).
But nonetheless a great big FAT (no pun intended) welcome to Blubber & Lard to our beloved little Bec!!!!!
You may all be wondering who this Tony Greco is referred to in the title and why he causes yours truly Pain and Torture. Tony Greco is a self-proclaimed fitness guru with a personal training studio (3 actually) in Ottawa http://www.grecoleanandfit.com/ Tony offers a 10 week program called .. Lean and Fit which I am renaming Pain and Torture.
The program consists of taking 3 45-minute group fitness classes per week and a healthy eating.
Lets start with the eating - P&T (pain & torture) advocate 5 meals a day ... I am liking it so far ... wine, cheese, chocolate, cakes .. ha ha ha. The 40-30-30 ratio. Lots of veggies, grains etc. I see in the literature that they say butter is a bad choice and to only have 1/3 tsp. Does 1/3 even exist? I mean what is the point of even having butter. This could help to explain the size of my bottom!
Last night I ventured for a protein shake after class. Oh my god. No wonder people don't eat after a protein shake they are totally nauseous!
And then there are the classes. I am actually having Mojo my trained servant Monkey type this for me as I have lost the use of my arms. Another reason why P&T works - you are in such pain after the classes you are unable to move and therefore you can't eat. The classes are circuit training using resistance, hand weights and floor exercises to work out. No fancy machines for us! Good old fashioned lunges, squats, push-ups and sit-ups .. but harder. Balance boards and bosu balls are a particular favourite torture method. Every class is different. Who knew there were so many different ways to make a person suffer.
I have survived 3 classes thus far. I am still waiting for that magic morning when I wake up transformed. Perhaps I should wait until week 3 for that. I am in my second week but it feels more like my first official week as after my first class I was paralysed with pain for 3 days. I constantly smell like A535 rub (deep heat). Soothe those aching muscles.
But I live to fight another day.
Die you dreadful fat cell die!
