I started this program on March 5th - the day after my birthday! Just what I needed to kick my bootay with after all the cake I ate!

The weights workouts for phase 1 have made me sore! I was surprised as I've been working out hard for a bit over a year now, and doing a lot of her videos. But ow! Especially my triceps and chest area. I've been using 10 pound weights, but for a couple exercises, like chair lifts, I have to use 7s.

After doing her weights workouts I do a TurboFire HIIT, usually 25 minutes, or like last night, I did 30 minutes of a kickboxing DVD. Tonight is cardio 1, and I'll do it twice in a row.

I'm really hoping this program helps with my last pounds I want to get off. As soon as I hit 134 my weight loss SCREECHED to a halt! This is my first real plateau, so I am thankful it didn't happen until a year in, but still. It sucks! I finally lost 1 pound over these past two weeks, so I'm down to 12-17 pounds left to go.

And I'm starving. All the time. YEP! Never was hungry until recently. I think my body's had enough of this cutting calories.

Here's to a healthy weekend!

    TMJ - I am so happy I didn't hit a plateau until now. So I really can't complain, but at the same time, it's frustrating. Thanks for the vote of confidence!

    JENS - I looked at the diet plan and thought "no way!" So I didn't do Kickstart fully, I did do two workouts a day, but I'm not following the diet plan. I only eat 1200-1250 calories a day, but I've learned what foods keep me full, give me energy, etc. So I stick with what I know!

    Love TurboFire.....the HIIT workouts are killer! I am just finishing week 1 of BR. I tried to do the kickstart, but the meals just weren't for me, I was lacking energy big time and was having a hard time keeping up with the workouts.

    Congrats on your weight loss....you can reach your goals!
