How far can two weeks of perfect meal plans and just the right amount of exercise- given that I don’t deviate in even the slightest manner into unhealthy (but all too well charted) waters?

Why don’t I (we) find out?! This is going to be the two-week transformation to end all two weeks transformations. Here are the simple to understand (but admittedly super hard to follow) rules.

1. 6 meals a day w/ lots of protein. (Easy enough)

2. I am cutting out almost ALL non-fruit/non-veggie/ non-whole wheat carbs from all my meals EXCEPT for breakfast. This means that when I stop by Chick-fil-A I will buy the grilled chicken, ditch the bun, and eat it over a salad. That is just ONE example of MANY I no doubt will be frustrated by over the next few weeks. (Very Hard)

3. Resistance training and Cardio go together! This is similar to what I’ve been doing off and on for about a month now, but I will stick to it much more consistently this time and with a higher level of intensity. (Hard)

4. Perseverance, perseverance, perseverance!

And here are three “before” pictures today. This is my starting point. Let’s see how far I can take this, together.

  1. I really appreciate your comments on my nerdy little blog 😉
    I have already “bloglined” you and plan to become a regular visitor. I am impressed with what you have done. I need all the inspiration that I can get for my own weight loss journey. I also appreciate the biblical approach.
    Good two week plan. It sounds a little tough but it is for a limited time and I think it will be great to see the comparison.

    If that’s your before pictures, where are your current?

  3. By Before, I mean these are the first set of pictures, taken yesterday. There will be “after” photos in two weeks.

    that is a good indication of healthiness. not just fit-ness.
    the pictures looks great, you look more cut. i think the love handles are the last to go, arent they?

  6. Seems that way Kris. What a horrible name for deposits of fat.
