After 1 week of the 90-day challenge, I am already feeling a lot better. I have done a great job sticking to the customized food plan from Life Without Pain and have worked out at AXIOM 5 times in the last 10 days.

My husband and I have a plan to each take turns watching baby Clara in the mornings so that we can each get to the gym. Well, today we had an obstacle that didn’t allow us to stick to our schedule. Brian had an early morning meeting at the office and then came home this afternoon with the flu. So instead of being able to go to the 6PM AXIOM group fitness class, I will be doing a at-home workout to make sure I stay on my plan!

Do you have schedule conflicts that get in the way and then you decide to just skip out on your workout? If that’s the case, just do this workout at home so that you stay on track!

AXIOM Health & Fitness and Life Without Pain teamed up to launch the New Year’s Resolution Challenge, giving our clients the ultimate challenge to start off 2012 on the right foot. The challenge goes from January 2nd until March 31st. The challenge consists of a workout plan taking group training classes, bi-weekly support groups to help you stay on track and a customized diet plan.

I, Laura Gainor, have been a client of AXIOM’s for over a year. I started with a Groupon, taking the 30-day challenge and immediately became addicted to the group fitness classes and felt like a much better person. So now, after having a baby 1 month ago, I was excited to kick off the 90-day challenge and help myself get back in shape!

I will be blogging right here every week or so letting all of you know how the challenge is going, track my results, share my diet plan meals and give you an inside look at the AXIOM Fitness group classes.

My goal is to shed 20 pounds by the end of the challenge. On March 24th I will also be a bridesmaid in my brother-in-law and future sister-in-law’s wedding, so I have the ultimate goal of looking good in that bridesmaid dress!
