P.I.N.K. Method – Update

     For those of you that didn’t know, I started a new workout routine that has a nutritional component to it, back in February.  I think I was just about 3 weeks into it when I wrote my first post about the P.I.N.K. Method.

     I finished the program around the third week of April, after completing the initial Reset Phase, and Phases 1, 2, and 3 ( with Resets in between ).  I have to laugh now, looking back on my original post where I mentioned that some of the workouts in Phase 1 were challenging … I had no idea at that point what was in store for me. Phases 2 and 3 really ramped up the workouts, and not only did I notice lots of great changes in how I felt, but suddenly, my clothes were all enormous on me. This meant I had to go shopping – what a drag. 😉

     I was down a couple of pant sizes part way through Phase 2, and went out and bought 4 new pairs of dress pants for work.  A few weeks later, I went down yet another 2 sizes, and got more pants. After completion, I’m down 2 more sizes.  I’ve lost a total of 28 pounds, which seems crazy, as weight loss was not my intention at all.

     After the program is over, you can do the ” 7 Day Shred” if you are within 5 pounds of your “goal weight”.  Since I didn’t plan on losing weight, and I already lost plenty, I didn’t do this.  I just went straight to “P.I.N.K. Preservation”, which is basically your long term plan for maintaining your new shape, and healthy lifestyle.  It is pretty straightforward: you continue to make healthy food choices, control your portion size, monitor your weight ( if that is a concern ) and stay active for life.

     I was pretty much “winging it”, and just decided to continue eating as I did while on the program, and cutting my workouts down to only 3 ( 1 hour intense sessions ) per week.  I was hoping this would maintain things, and that I wouldn’t lose any more weight. At first, I continued to lose a few more pounds, but thankfully, I seem to have “levelled off” now.  Obviously, everyone is different, and has to figure this out for themselves, to see what works for them.

     I am fortunate – I have never been “overweight” in my entire life, but clearly, I wasn’t in the best shape I was capable of being. I only know that now, looking back, and knowing how different I feel. I am stronger, more fit and healthy, and I don’t ever want to lose this feeling. This is a lifestyle change, plain and simple. It feels good to do something for yourself – most of us tend to neglect ourselves – caring about your health and well-being is important.

     So, whether you have low energy, want to lose some weight, or just start taking good care of yourself, I would highly recommend the P.I.N.K. Method. It truly has changed my life, and I feel great!
