OK y’all… remember THIS pic??
Maybe you weren’t there that day, but it sparked over 100 comments and a lot of accusations that it was photoshopped. Well, I actually KNOW this girl. Her name is Bo Shin and we’ve been friends for 3 years. I know she has no agenda or reason to photoshop this pic, but I figured, “What the hell, why don’t I (and all of us) just try this ourselves?” (you can see her interview where I ask if this is photoshopped?)
I personally used to use Splenda a TON>>>> like, I’d steal it from Starbucks (or wherever) to use at home because I didn’t want to pay for my habit (TRUE CONFESSION… SHAME)
Anywho…. I am known on occasion to order a 4 splenda non-fat latte and have also gotten into the bad habit of drinking crystal lights or a diet soda here and there because “Hey! Look Ma! No Calories!!”
OK OK this pic did it for me… I am going to STOP. Cold Turkey. Even SUGAR. I did it last year with gum, so I can do it again.. at least for a month, for the sake of an experiment. I took a pic this morning (sighhhh) and I encourage all of you to do the same! I WILL be interviewing Bo later this week, so keep an eye out for that. We’ll see what she did instead of Splenda, how much she usually used, and all the juicy details (mayyyybe she did photoshop?)
THE SECOND PART OF THE CHALLENGE
I’m not letting y’all off the hook without some exercise too! This month we’re going to work on sprints… RUN AS FAST AS THE WIND for 30 sec. on…. rest until you’re ready again, and repeat 5 times a day, 5 days a week.
Track your speed and progress throughout the month too!!
***Modification– for those who are unable to run, you can “sprint” on a bicycle, handcycle or elliptical too… just pedal “all out” for the same 30 seconds
THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF H.I.I.T or “BURST TRAINING”
I cannot WAIT to see who takes part in both of these challenges… no doubt, the top one is going to be hard for me, but I’m telling myself “Don’t be a b!tch”
