For the next six weeks, Erin and I are on a mission - a mission to transform our diets and our bodies. Even though we work out regularly, Erin and I are like most women - we'd like to firm up, lose some weight and improve our overall fitness level.
Personal trainer, Irene McCormick will put the through the paces in the gym. At home, Erin and Sonya will attempt to eat clean and healthy.
We hope you'll follow along and take the transformation challenge as well. We'll post our food logs and detailed information about each workout.
We begin by posting the results of our body fat and strength tests, measurements and weight. This may actually be the hardest part of the challenge, but Irene assures us they're only numbers. They do not define us. It's simply a way to measure our progress. So here goes.
