A missed workout

I didn't workout yesterday, and I feel guilty today. Arg. The kids just have been on some weird schedule lately, and they BOTH are working on molars so it's been cranky city over here. I will try and add 1 extra workout 2 different days next week to make up for it since the kids will be at their grandparents. Hopefully that will help. I'm starting week 6 on Monday so I'm so close to my 60 day goal, I don't want to mess this up!

I do need to go to the store and try and do some prep work in advance for foods, it's been to easy to just grab a veggie burger for lunch....I need less processed foods for sure. I'm going to do some more research on menu plans and start tracking my calories instead of guesstimating them, I think that will really jump start the weight loss.

I think I've finally decided that P90X will be my next workout! I've always admired the people who've accomplished that, so it would be an awesome personal goal to complete it. My husband was kind of talking about doing it with me, so I think it would be fun to have an accountability partner! At the end of April is when I'll be buying it, and maybe I can get a P90X challenge going!

Brazil Butt Lift 60 Day Challenge!

I lost 10 inches all over in 30 days just by doing Brazil Butt Lift and drinking Shakeology every day! I want to share this with you, and to challenge ourselves to get swimsuit ready by summer! Summer is LESS then 90 days away, and you CAN change your body in that time.

What is Brazil Butt Lift?

Brazil Butt Lift™ uses cardio, dance, and a unique training method to work your rear end from every angle. You’ll reduce your hips, slim your thighs, and lift your butt, shaping your “bum bum” (pronounced “boom boom”) into the best booty of your life. And, it’s fun! Brazil Butt Lift will show you why Leandro is known as the Brazilian Butt Master

It's a 60-day Brazil Butt Lift workout program challenge and it's the easiest way to achieve your goals ever. As part of my group, you'll be one of five like minded people. We'll track our progress along the way, hold each other accountable, and motivate, inspire, and encourage each other to achieve amazing results through our private Facebook group.

What's amazing about this program, is that it's all laid out for you, there is a calender based on your booty type, that gives the exact workouts you should be doing for the day.

The booty calenders are:

- The to flat solution
- Pear shape
- To big solution
- Classic solution

And, with The FAT-BURNING FOOD GUIDE we’ll eat healthy yummy foods.

Week 5, Day 4

I'm down another inch off my waist since Sunday! Maybe it could of been more if I didn't have a slice of pizza for dinner last night, or the 2 glasses of wine on Monday lol.

I added an extra weight to each ankle last night during High and Tight, and wow I felt it! I never feel sore the next day though, I feel like I'm pushing myself...but I'm not sore anymore. I do want to get a set of 8lb dumbells soon, we'll see if I can handle that yet though.

I finally decided to commit to being a coach! I'm so impressed with my progress so far, and I'm very impressed by Beach Body in general, I want to share it with everyone, and help everyone get healthy! I also will take full advantage of the 25% off products that I get, I want to keep drinking Shakeology and I am planning on getting another program at the end of April!

Month 1 complete!

Today is week #5, day #1. I probably wont do my workout until my husband comes home from work tonight, 1 kid is napping and the other one I'm trying to get to I can get some chores done like grocery lists, meal planning and picking up the house a little bit. The boys will hopefully be staying a couple of days with my parents this week so I can get some deep cleaning done, and my husband and I can have some relaxing time! I miss them so much when they are gone, but it is nice to have a day or 2 off to do whatever I want, and not have to worry about schedules and tantrums :)

Today I am supposed to be doing Bum Bum and Tummy Tuck, but I did that yesterday and I'm soooo sore! I seriously dont think I could do Tummy Tuck even if I wanted to lol. Instead I'll do Cardio Axe and Sculpt (because I missed it last week!)....Sculpt is my favorite. I'm not the biggest fan of Cardio Axe because it's a little boring, it seems like the whole workout is just to lead you up to the last 10 minutes. Bum Bum is a cardio too, but waaaay more challenging. I'm STILL having to pause it, and I'm on week 5! My poor quads...that video is a quad killer haha.

Here are my stats so far:

Day #1
Chest: 45"
R Arm: 13 1/2
L Arm: 13 1/2
Waist: 44
Hips: 47
R Thigh: 26 1/2
L Thigh: 27 1/2
Weight: 181

Day #30
Chest: 43 1/2
R Arm: 13
L Arm: 13
Waist: 42 1/2
Hips:  45 1/2
R Thigh: 26 1/2
L Thigh:  26
Weight: 182

9" down in 30 Days!!! But I've also GAINED a pound. That sucks. I know I've put on a ton of muscle though, and I do look leaner, and have less cellulite so I know it's working.

Before and after shot:

As you can see, there is not that much visible difference (except in my butt, which is lifted) but it's only been 30 days. I cant wait to see on day 60!

After I complete the 60 days, I plan on ordering another Beach Body workout, either ChaLean Extreme, P90X or Turbo Fire. I really cant decide! I'll worry about it in a few weeks though :)

Week 3, day 2

Today is week 3, day 2...and I haven't exercised yet. I'm SO exhausted. I dont know if it's from just for the first time in my life working out (around an hour a day) but I'm so tired every single day. Last night I was asleep around 10pm and I slept until around 6:30am, but I feel like I could go back to sleep for a few hours! My kids are napping so right now would be the ideal time to exercise, but I'm just looking at the Beach  Body site trying to motivate myself. I think part of the reason is that I really thought I would of lost more weight by now....I've lost a pound. I quit drinking, followed a healthy meal plan and with the exercising...I thought I would at least be down 5lbs. My husband just keeps reminding me that it's a 60 day program, not a 2 week I have no right to be upset until it's done. He's right.

I would love to add Turbo Fire to my life, but Beach Body DVDs are so expensive. I know the whole "You cant put a price on your health!" line, but really....Beach Body DVDs are freaking expensive lol. Hopefully in April or May I can look into purchasing it.

I've been doing pretty good on my meal plan...and then I had to blow it with a half a grilled cheese sandwich. I just got home from the store, I was super hungry and my brain like shuts off when I'm hungry so I wasn't thinking clearly. Oh well, I'll just make sure no more slip ups for the rest of the day!

I start week 3 on Monday of Brazil Butt Lift! I actually haven't lost a pound, but I am down inches! My butt already is feeling tighter and higher, I'm glad I bought this program. I also am drinking my first glass of chocolate Shakeology. It's SUPER chocolatey, more then I thought it would be actually, I thought it would kind of taste like a SlimFast. I love that it doesn't taste like chemicals, it tastes like an actual real chocolate milkshake. I blended 1 scoop of Shakeology with 2 tsp instant coffee, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 water, 1 TBS of Better 'n Peanut Butter. YUUUUUUM!

I cant wait to start week 3! I'm halfway done with month 1, and I cant wait to take pictures on day 30 so I can see the difference more, and hopefully I will also be down some pounds. After I finish 60 days of Brazil Butt Lift, I'm going to get either Insanity, Chalean Extreme or Turbo Fire and do a hybrid of both programs. I'll have to research them more, but for now....I hear destructive kids.
