42 Days to Fit: Join Me?

My sweet blogging friend, Brandy at The Marathon Mom, began her 42 Days to Fit program back in August.  Since I was pregnant, I knew I wouldn't be joining in on the fun.  However, I did plug it away in my mind, knowing I would like to do it after the baby was born.

As some of you know, I already run, and have been running for the last couple of weeks now.  So far, I haven't seen any visible results, but I've been through this enough times to know it takes time.  In addition, establishing a good milk supply for nursing is of utmost importance, so I have been eating like a horse.  Now that I have an established supply, it's time to start paying attention to what I am eating and eliminating some of the junk I've highly enjoyed over the holidays!

Today was the day....the start of Week 1!  What better day to begin a fitness program than January 1st right?  Every Tuesday will be the start of my new week instead of Monday.

So with just three and a half hours of sleep, I went running this morning.  Running will be my staple cardio three times a week.  And then I will do the circuit exercises twice a week.

Each week, I will have a food challenge and an exercise challenge.  This week's food challenge:

1. Drink only water!  Tea and coffee are okay, but NO sugar!
2. NO desserts!

OUCH!  Sugar is definitely my nemesis, so this will be a huge challenge!  I love anything freshly baked (which we do A LOT!).  Cookies, cakes, sweet breads......love, love, love.  This will indeed be my biggest challenge. 

Drinking water only should be fairly easy.  I drink mostly only water anyway.  I love Diet Coke, but my husband and I had already set a goal of giving it up.  I will still have my coffee in the morning, but with no sugar.  I use heavy cream in my coffee (yep!), and will still use that.

So, are you with me?  It would be great to have a few partners to share in the fun!  I started today, but you could begin tomorrow...or on Monday.  I encourage you to read through all of Brandy's posts leading up to Week 1 to get all the information!

Come on back tomorrow to see what I am eating to satisfy my sweet tooth!

How's this for accountability?  Who's with me?
