90 Day Paleo Food Challenge – Results

 
90 Day Paleo AIP Food Challenge

Time for another update, I am a week late on posting! Last Monday was my 90 weigh in and results day and I am still losing weight and inches.  I cannot say enough about pushing through each day and sticking with your meal plans as much as you can at this point. Below are my results from Day 1 to Day 90 (more…)

Weekly Meal Planning Guides

 

Today’s post is learning how to meal plan for each week. For me, it is one of the most helpful things I have done for reaching my weight loss goals. I am not lost each day wondering what I am going to cook or eat for each meal. Or, tempted to just eat whatever is readily available. Although, since my diet change to AIP Paleo I am not as tempted to eat random things anymore. (more…)

Where did October go?

Whew! I can’t believe we are already in November! October was a super busy month at our house. Our son is now 9 months old. It is hard to believe that in just a few short months we will be celebrating his first birthday. I must say the past few weeks have been difficult because he is teething! I never imagined how hard it would be for him and for us. He does well most days but at least once a week he is up a few times in the night with pain and discomfort. He has his bottom two incisors and he is now working on his top incisors which seem more painful. Other happy updates for him is he has learned to clap with us and he is babbling all the time. He healed up very well from his tongue and lip tie surgery a few months ago. I enjoy every day with him even when we are sleep deprived!!

I must update and say that October has left little time for my weekly workout schedules. I did well for the first part of the month, but the last two weeks I have not made it a priority for me. I am making it a goal to get back on track this week. My energy level has decreased tremendously and I do not enjoy that side effect of little or no physical activity.  I am still using TurboFire as my main workout schedule and I am going to start again on week 3 for the daily calendar I will follow.

Even though my workouts decreased in October, I am still happy with my personal results. I have lost 2 more pounds and 2 1/2 inches from waist. This is extremely exciting on the waist measurements since I often wondered if I could get my abs back in shape after pregnancy and you can! On the days I wasn’t working out I tried to make sure I ate well and did not consume too many calories.

Here’s to staying motivated in November and getting in shape before we start the new year.

Weight: 223
Waist measurement: 37″
First weight loss goal: 190

PiYo Results Day 1 to Day 60

Piyo Workout Results

I can finally announce and show my 60 day results on the PiYo Program. When I started this program I wasn’t really sure where it would take me I just knew I love Yoga and Pilates workouts. This program has made me enjoy working out again. It has boosted my confidence without being difficult to complete. In the beginning I thought this is too easy I’m not sweating or my muscles don’t hurt like other workouts. But, that is the best thing about PiYo, It builds you up slowly and helps you master the moves and then you start to sculpt your body slowly each week as the program becomes harder. I started as an out of shape new mother looking to gain confidence in her workouts. I found that and more.

I can complete workouts that I always thought were unachievable for me: push-ups, burpees, and completing side planks again. I still have to master PiYo pikes but I know its possible now.

PiYo Before and After Results  at Day 30

It has been a month since I started the PiYo workout and diet and I am very happy with my results. I have 30 more days to go before the official before and after but I wanted to share what I have accomplished so far. I used to shy away from sharing anything personal like this and would be sad about the way I looked. But, I have found new confidence that I am making changes in my health and the way I look so I shouldn’t be afraid to show these photos. I hope that they help someone else get started on the road to a healthier lifestyle.
