I've been working out daily for at least an hour, and eating better.
I cannot seem to follow a strict diet. I think part of that reason is that I am one of the lucky few who needs to get toned, but I don't really need to lose weight. Most diets are just designed to shed pounds. For me that's not good.
Here's what changes I've made:
A lot less sugar (probably time to take my Jelly Bean jar off the counter though.)
I'm pleased with my results so far. It's been a lot of hard work, but to see a change makes me really happy. My competitor in this six pack race has won, but I'm a happy second place. Now I think I'll actually take "before" pictures and start all over again.
