fitness blender day 2-4 review

Thursday, October 30, 2014

emoticon These challenges sure do fly emoticon by! I am extremely happy that so far this is week 3 and I am still working out. I have been using Fitness Blender videos for work outs. I started at 336 pounds I am currently at 330. emoticon It sure takes a while but it's worth it.

emoticon Any how my workouts have been a blast. I sweat up a storm and I am not a pleasant sight. I think if my husband saw me working out he would be mentally scared. Lol. emoticon

Anyhow it's been great. I will have a better blog later. I am short on time emoticon and need to get to work. Everyone keep warm and hydrated!!



Fitness Blender Challenge Day 1

Monday, October 27, 2014

emoticon I have decided that until November 1st gets here I am going to redo one of their older 5 day challenges. Then after that its 1 month challenge of their stuff. emoticon

emoticon I have noticed while I was doing today'd redo 1 of 5 i had more stamina and doing the workouts are easier. I was better and checking my body form and making sure i was engaging all my muscles. I still was covered in sweat by the end of the video. Heck I am still pumped to do tomorrows work out. Another sweat fest on the way!!

emoticon I have lost a total of 6 pounds in 2 weeks. I AM NOT STARVING MYSELF!!! A few people have asked me how i have lost so much weight so fast. I tell them that i work hard and watch what i eat. To be honest i didn't think 3 pounds a week was a bad thing. I know 2 would be better, but if my body is as serious as my heart and brain its going to lose some weight every week if not every other week.

emoticon Work has been stressful as always! Too many teens and not enough Adults let alone no other managers to help me out with the teens. This place is a good reason why I work out. It helps me control my stress and anger issues.

emoticon Any how my friends keep pushing for your goals!

    Great to hear how it went and that you're looking forward to tomorrow's "sweat fest" Ha! I liked your term.
I'm sure work gets stressful and drama filled, I hope some of it settles down for you.
I think you're doing great on your weight loss, good job.

    Looks like you are really getting into the swing of things.

Keep it up!!

Actually 3 pounds a week isn't too bad the first few weeks while you are flushing out all the salt retained fluids in your system. It's also a great motivator, but don't let it lure you into "treating" yourself.

emoticon Since I've been away I've let loose. That loseness played havoc on my health, but I am back in the game.

emoticon emoticon emoticon I have been back in the game since last Monday. I've lost 4 pounds and doing great with 5 day a week workouts and changing my eating habits. This time it feels different. I still feel excited, but I feel more encouraged to keep going.

emoticon Morning breakfast usually is Greek yogurt with frozen mixed berries and almonds or overnight oatmeal with geek yogurt, mixed berries and banana. Once in a great while I eat scrambled eggs with Turkey bacon and cheese with 12 grain bread, but I like something sweet in the morning. Also I feel fuller with the yogurt fruit combo.

emoticon Lunch is usually a grilled sweet chili wrap from work with half the sauce extra veggies and add some jalapenos. It fills me up for most of the hours while there. If I am at home I eat some sort of lean turkey sand which or a healthy choice microwaving food. Now just to let you know I'm not big on microwaved food, but I usually don't have a lot of time at work or off work.

emoticon Snack is an Apple, fruit or wheat thins and hummus.

emoticon Dinner depends on who is cooking. Most of the time it's me and its something on the healthier side. When hubby cooks is pizza, or chili dogs, or a huge bag of chicken Alfredo with garlic sticks. When he cooks I have to adjust my calorie intake a bit. He's just not a great cook. Lucky us it's only 1 to 2 nights a week if that.

emoticon As far as work outs go. Last week I did a fitness blender.com 5 day challenge. They sure do make you sweat a bunch. This week they released a new 5 day week challenge. It's day two today. It was awesome. Once this challenge is over I am thinking for the next few weeks to repeat this process of the 2 five day challenges, but I am also seriously leaning to buy one of their 8 week programs.

emoticon So time to wrap this up. It's been a great two weeks! emoticon

    Excellent to hear! You're doing great :)
Your lunch chili wraps sound delicious. I hope you love the fitness blender if you decide to purchase the 8 week program.
It's raining here, we finally got the Pineapple Express and have had two days of down pour and some thunder (a tornado nearby also) so the outdoor exercise has been interesting. Took the pup out for a stroll last night. Still need some rainboots for me and the babe.

So for 2 weeks I have stayed within my calorie range, I have worked out 4 to 5 times a week and I have lost 5 pounds. So today i decided that I would reward myself in a rather unhealthy matter. I pretty much ate what ever I wanted. I know not the smartest move in my book, but I have decided I will not do that every time. I am currently working on reward goals that don't include a binge eating situation. I will post that later. For now I leave with this blog as a reminder to myself that I won't be doing that again anytime soon. Here's to another 5 pounds!

    You should totally reward yourself with new fitness gear! emoticon and emoticon

    yeah a binge day is probably not a good reward. I've done that, and gained 3lbs back in a day...that is how much my body hates me!
Hope the rest of your week is healthy and a success like the last one.

    I am a corned beef addict. I just bought 4 packages the other day and will probably get a couple more. Some went into the freezer right away and I've got a nice big one just waiting until Monday morning when it goes into the crockpot. When I get home from work, it will be ready. I usually take a bit of water from the crockpot and put it in a pan with a nice chunk of cabbage and steam the cabbage until it is crunchy tender. Heavenly!!! Sometimes I add some nuked potatoes.

Also love reuben sandwiches, but I'm not sure I can find any rye bread around.



p.s. Your stew looks really good!!

    Corned beef is one of my faves and we eat it year round. I like to have parsnips, carrots, turnips and rutabagas roasted as a side sometimes. I put my corned beef in the oven on 275 for about 5 hours (with just enough water to cover the bottom of the pan) tightly covered. Comes out fall apart tender and the house is warmed up and smells wonderful. Enjoy yours...it looks great!!
