I did it again! It is MONDAY and I’m posting my Fitness Friday post. But it wasn’t because I didn’t setup a publish date, but because I’ve been sick. Yeah this weekend was spent with my bed and PJ’s. But I am pushing through, and making this happen today.
I have a confession, when I first agreed to doing this Revolt Fitness Challenge, my exceptions weren’t that high. I always compare my fitness programs to those of when I had a personal trainer. And guess what? I have one right now! Her name is Nichole Huntsman and she kicks my arse 5 days a week. I am soooo happy I agreed to do this. It has given me motivation to achieve my personal best. I workout a couple times a week usually, but haven’t been pushing myself to my limits -till now. And the results are showing just this. In two weeks I have lost 7.5 inches. I am firming back up, feeling re-energized and I am in full control over my body again(minus this nasty cold I have).
Check out my sweaty I can’t believe I finished that workout photos!
It has been great!
I have been taking some photos of my progress and have been going back and forth on showing them. But I think I will at the end of this uprising(6 weeks). I feel pictures will show it all. This is short and sweet, still feeling crappy, but really needed to share an updated post on this
Hope everyone had a great weekend and for all you Mom’s a wonderful Mothers Day! I will be back tomorrow with a nice healthy snack(that can also be vegan lol). This week I will be incorporating some clean meal ideas. Because right now that is my main focus!
Question: Would you be interested in joining the next 6-week uprising? I may have something special to share with you all soon
Disclaimer: I was chosen as a Revolt Fitness Program blogger and received free membership to try the fitness program out. All opinions expressed are my own. And yes, I would pay for the program and will continue to follow it even after my 12 week commitment is up.
It has been 5 days since I started on this new fitness venture called Revolt Fitness. So far I have surprisingly enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. I’m quite impressed with the whole scale of it. And as promised will go into some detail about it today.
I have done other “at-home” fitness programs, and they have always been a good cardio workout, but I’ve always been left with the feeling I still needed to go to the gym to lift weights. In this program, weights are included! This was a huge plus for this program. An average week will look like 3 cardio days(don’t be fooled, we still use weights here) and two sculpt days, one for upper body and the other for lower. You will burn with love and sweat for this program. Your endorphins will push you through till the next day, and you will wake up with the satisfaction that you are changing your life for the better! Another HUGE portion of this program that I have always felt is the most important is the diet. You will get a new menu each week of the program, and don’t fret…you will get a cheat day! I am just completing the detox, and like any detox plan, it gets boring quickly. But important to get your body cleansed and ready for just clean foods full of nutrients. I have made some modifications, but all within the allowed food alternatives
Every day a new video get’s posted on the site, Nichole will demonstrate all the exercises for each level(there is 3 fitness levels, and as you progress you can increase the fitness level. I currently do the level 2 exercises). She will then go through the sets in real time for you to follow her. Workouts are always changing, and you are always engaging new muscles. I won’t lie…..did some deadlifts this week and it was a perfect love/hate relationship with them. Oh how I have missed doing deadlifts(can you hear the sarcasm?). Another BIG plus for me with the workout videos was the music!! Fantastic music to workout to. It was new stuff and things I actually listen to while going to the gym! Major plus for me. The workouts last between 15-30min each. Of course you have rest and breaks in between.
Some of you have asked how much weight I have lost and so forth. I will be honest, part of the program is to measure, weigh and take fat %. I will only be weighing myself on the scale once a week(Friday’s). I like to go by how my clothes fit me. But I will tell you since starting the program Monday, I have lost 3.6lbs! I must say, I didn’t expect to loose that much. I have a feeling it’s the detox diet that made this happen. I don’t really have a “goal number” in mind. Just want to feel great about myself!
Tonight I have absolutely nothing planned. Probably film my video for the unwrapping of my new Glossybox & shoot a skinny cocktail drink. It’s sunny today, which may give me enough strength to go out for a run….but we will see.
Hope this Fitness Friday sees you well!
Question: what are your fitness goals this week/month/summer?
