    I'm starting this diary to record my progress on The Tracy Anderson 30 day Method which is a diet and fitness plan. I'll be doing 2 hours of exercise (1 hour of Muscle Work and 1 hour of Cardio Complement) a day, 6 days a week. I'll be doing the diet plan outlined in Tracy Anderson's 30 day Method book. Once I'm finished with the Tracy Anderson's 30 day Method, (I may go on to Tracy Anderson's Metamorphosis, not sure, I have a few Tracy Anderson DVDs so I may just follow them until I'm the size I want to be). I'm hoping that by starting a diary it'll help me stick to my diet and exercise plan.

    My starting weight is 189 pounds (13 and a half stone).

    My first goal is 140 pounds (10 stone).

    Second goal is 112 pounds (8 stone).

    I'll be starting it on Wednesday (27/04/11)

    Edited to add: Actually I got a few things confused, I've read through the book and its 1 hour and 45 minutes of exercise, 7 days a week.

    Hi Halcyon

    I thought Tracy Anderson was quite hard-core - if you know what I mean! Are you used to exercise? I am put off by her unreal looking body and the tough regime. (2 hours sounds like a long time). Is it suitable for beginners? Sorry for all the questions!

    The diet looks like starvation! + NO carbs!!

    Eeeek! good luck to you - I admire your determination...

    Hi Pomooky, yeah it does look quite extreme. But I've been doing Zumba, intervals on my exercise bike, and other exercises, so I feel prepared for the exercise.

    I'm used to going without carbs, I do that at the moment anyway.

    Yeah it is suitable for beginners.

    Actually I've read through the book and realised that I got a few things confused, its 1 hour and 45 minutes of exercise and its seven days a week. I'm gonna edit my original post to reflect that.

    So the diet and exercise regime started to day, I've had/will have
    Breakfast: Strawberry Mint Salad
    Lunch: Tomato Minestrone Soup
    Dinner: Poached Cod and Roasted Asparagus
    Snack: Choco Blueberry Pudding
    Nom nom. :D
    And I will be doing the exercise which is the Muscle Design and the Cardio Component, not sure how long it will all take yet.
    Looking forward to this, I know it won't be easy but I have to say I've heard good things about Tracy Anderson's 30 Day Method. And hopefully this will help me achieve the results I'm looking for.

    lol, thanks, yeah if it worked for them, I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work for me. :)

    Anyway the exercise wasn't too bad at all. Nowhere near as hard as I thought it was going to be, it was still taxing but not impossible. It didn't take as long as I expected. But I was still sweating buckets, so it should be working.

    *finger crossed* this will give me the result I'm looking for.

    Feeling good today... I'm pleased with my progress, so far.
