I have been back on the wagon with exercising for the past 2 weeks. It's been going good. I am doing at least 1 video a day, mixing it up between Jillian Michaels, Brazil Butt Lift and Just Dance or Zumba for Wii. I'm really feeling the burn every day and I feel like I am getting a great workout.
I have always been good about being active, unless I am sick (the flu had me doing nothing for over a month!) I can't seem to get the results I want and I always feel like the more I workout, the more I can eat junk. On Saturday, I started taking Raspberry Ketone. I know, I never use any kind of weight loss supplements, but Raspberry Ketone is supposed to be natural and I figured a little help wouldn't be horrible.
I took my first dose on Saturday. I had forgotten about it earlier in the day, so I took 2 pills before dinner. Within a half hour, I felt like I ate a horse. We sat down to eat dinner and I already felt full. I ate half a chicken breast, some yams and green beans for dinner, and then I didn't eat anything for the rest of the night. The bad thing was it made me shaky, my heart was racing a little, and I was up until 3am. I'm not used to caffeine!
Sunday I again forgot to take it before lunch, but I woke up still feeling full. I ate a protein bar for breakfast just so I had some food in me, and then had a 6" sub for lunch. I decided to take only 1 pill before dinner so maybe the caffeine wouldn't affect me so much. I had no issues with 1 pill at all. It didn't seem to make me feel as full though, but I was still careful about what I ate. I did end up having a snack after dinner. I made sure it was healthy - an organic apple with organic peanut butter.
With working out, eating right, and the extra boost from the Raspberry Ketone, I am hoping to start seeing the results I want! I am not overweight, really I just want to lose about 15 pounds and tone my body.
