5 Weeks

Saturday, March 02, 2013

It's hard to believe but it's been nearly 5 full weeks of this healthy lifestyle and doing my TurboFire workouts. Tomorrow marks the final day of the 5th week. I'm feeling great and loving my workouts. I fit back into my size 8 jeans. I feel very motivated. Even when I don't feel like working out I do it. Some nights, like last night, I'm just exhausted but I get my workout in anyway. I feel good afterward. Not only do I feel accomplished but physically I feel good. I've been dieting off and on for 8 years now, since after my second son was born. Something feels different about this time. Like I can actually accomplish my goals.

I'm two weeks into eating healthy and my TurboFire program. I decided to take some measurements this morning. In two weeks I have lost 9 inches and 4.8 pounds! I've also decreased my body fat percentage by 5.5%. Can you say, amazing results!? I'm so proud of myself and so surprised. I can honestly say I was not expecting such great results. I was expecting a little progress but not this much. This is a huge motivator. I will keep this up and I will reach my goals.

My Eating & TurboFire

Saturday, February 02, 2013

I've been struggling with my eating this week. I've had a few good days and a few bad days. On the bad days I have binged at night. Last night was one of those nights. It led to a higher number on the scale today. Usually when I do this I get discouraged and give up. Something is different this time and I feel like I can get through it. I have a feeling until I figure out what is causing these binges (is it emotional or me letting myself get too hungry, etc.) it will happen again. That's ok. It's part of the process to making a lifestyle change.

On another note, I've been working out to TurboFire. I love it! It's so much fun. I do get tired and have a hard time keeping up sometimes but I just usually grab some water and get back into it the best I can. I just have to get used to it. It's a lot different than Insanity. I enjoy it more than Insanity though which is good. Maybe that means I will get through the whole program.


Day 1 of Turbo Fire

Monday, January 28, 2013

I completed my first Turbo Fire workout this morning. What a workout. It was much more fun that Insanity yet I still burned the same amount of calories. I had a rough time keeping with the routine at times. It's different from Insanity in that you have a routine to follow instead of one exercise at a time. I really enjoyed it though and I was super tired and sweaty afterward. I'm looking forward to tomorrow!


Destined For Failure????

Sunday, January 27, 2013

Today is day two back on track and eating healthy. Or at least it was supposed to be. I made it all day on track but then dinner came. And, I binged. I feel like I'm destined for failure. I can't make it two whole days with eating right? Ugh, it gets harder and harder each time I try to lose weight. I'm kicking myself for letting myself gain all my weight back (plus 5).

    You are so NOT destined for failure..... sounds like you could use some compassion for YOU. emoticon After a big hug, shake it off - I love the image of how dogs shake the water off! - chalk it up to a bad couple of days. Then make 1 good decision. Just 1. Could be very very small... have a glass of water. Mint tea. Lay on the floor and do some stretches. Go to bed a little earlier. Anything that puts a notch in the YES I CAN column. And come at it again tomorrow.

Be sure to eat breakfast - really! It can make so much of a difference. If dinner time is the hardest time for you (it is for me too) then eat lightly throughout the day - but do eat - so that you have lots of calories left in the evening. Try Swiss Miss, the 90 cal kind. Chocolate, sweet, nurturing, but low in calories. Have 2... fills you up.
