Getting fit for Life

Checking In…

It’s been a great week of healthy eating and exercise…I never stopped my P90x3 workouts (we are starting week 6 tomorrow) and back to getting my steps up and eating a more reasonable portion of food…sometimes the food is so good I almost inhale it…LOL I will say I am way better at my food control and learning to say no to it when I know I am full.

Friday

  • Weighed 115.8
  • Bodyfat 25%

Saturday

  • Weighed at 115.2
  • Bodyfat 25%

So since Monday Morning I lost 3.2 lbs and 1.5% body fat…I didn’t do measurements I just felt I needed to reset and get myself back on track before my eating and drinking started to control me…I was at 120 lbs one day last week so guess that is a number I didn’t care to see on scale and knew if I didn’t get back on track I’d be feeling sluggish and with summer here I don’t have time for lazy 🙂

Eating healthy doesn’t have to taste bad…it may take a little extra time to prepare but in the end your body will thank you for it.

How did your healthy week go?  Did you get a walk in, bike, added a healthy meal to your day?

I have a new challenge group starting July 6th…message me for more info.

Results from 3 Day Refresh

Finished the 3 day refresh on Monday night… weighed in and did measurements first thing on Tuesday.

I had a loss of 4.6 pounds and 4 inches…🏆I only took measurements on my belly bump scar, belly button and hips.

Overall I didn’t find it too hard… First day I had a bit of a headache…Of course I wanted my munchies and carbs…steak but it was only for 3 days so I knew I could have that in no time.  I have to say the only thing is I don’t think I would do this on a weekend next time… Just because you are out doing stuff and you might get a bit weak from the change of diet… Plus if you want to socialize it would be a bit hard… Especially if you get the hangries…

Side effects I had were head ache and some gas:o…also we ate pretty much the same meals  and didn’t workout just walked around 10,000 steps daily.

Next one is in about 3 months. ..I told Brian it wasgoing to be Labor Day weekend he promptly told me off….lol😂

3 Refresh Day 2 here I Come

3 Day Refresh

On Day 1 I have to say I was impressed on how I didn’t get very hangry… There were times I got hungry once before lunch… And then before bed but I stayed up close to two hours longer than I normally do.

Lunch I found was the most filling…salad, berries and a the vanilla fresh shake.

At bedtime I found I had a headache… And woke up with one but had a few sips of coffee and it is gone so maybe it was caffeine withdrawal.

Day 1 – I lost 2.8 lbs around 1.5″ of my belly area.

3 Day Refresh – Day 1

Today I begin the 3 Day Refresh.  I am nervous and excited to see what results it will bring…especially after eating out at restaurants all last week.

Day 1 Measurements –

  • Weight 119.2 lbs

Breakfast was Vegan Tropical Strawberry Shakeology and some cantaloupe; now off to have a green tea

Working Out on the Road

I am just back from a week-long work trip to two of our offices on the west coast…

I managed to do my PiYo every day using my Beachbody on Demand Club membership to access my purchased Beachbody workouts and just steamed them from my laptop.  I still got up around 5 am sometimes early…the time change for me was -4 hrs so it was a bit hard to adjust too

Calgary Skytower…great view to workout too

Working out in my room in Vancouver…tight fit but it worked 🙂

I did have my chocolate Shakeolgoy 4 out of the 6 days on the road…I do notice that when I don’t drink it I pick at food and nothing seems to really satisfy my hunger…so this is a good thing for when I drink it I don’t want to eat all through the day.

Now food is where I didn’t fare so well…seemed like the restaurants I went to were full of carbs…had some sushi and noodle bowls and plenty of oysters.  With my supper meals I would have an alcoholic beverage 🍷🍹 two at the most. This is a huge improvement of my past where I would sit back and drink just because…but since working out the past year I find I don’t tend do that any more :mrgreen:

Every day I also got at least 10000 steps.walking to the offices or out to supper at night…I enjoyed going out rain (I took my wet-skin rain-suit with me)  or shine just nice to be outside enjoying the sunshine and the very few flowers that i found.

Now that I am back home it will be great to get back into routine and follow 21 Day Fix meal plan; but first I am doing the 3 Day Refresh to cleanse out the toxins I had over the past week and get down to my target weight around 115 lbs…while I was away I gained 3.6 lbs…crazy!

Our 21 Day Fix Extreme Results

I realized I never posted about our experience with the 21 Day Fix Extreme…when we were finishing up the last 3 days of the program I had cold that eventually turned to a sinus cold that lasted for almost a month…I did however manage to finish the program.

I love the workouts on this program…the pilates one takes a little bit of getting used to but once you get the proper resistance band it isn’t that bad.  My husband is quite a bit taller than me he had more trouble the band he had was to heavy of resistance…I think it was a 30 lb and the program calls for a 15 lb resistance.

My favourite work out which I thought would be the one I didn’t like was the Plyo workout…awesome.  I switched where I needed to for modified vs non-modified workout…modifier workout is not that bad actually.

I did the countdown to competition plan meal plan.  I didn’t find it too bad after the first couple days.  Brian did the maintaining current weight program (wasn’t in it for weight loss just to maintain his current weight)

Overall I am happy with this program and I will do it again. I love the results and I know a few rounds of doing it (probably just the extreme meal plan not the countdown to completion plan every time) you could look pretty ripped.

Our results…Not bad for 21 days of effort!

EXTREME FITNESS. SIMPLE EATING. SERIOUS RESULTS.

Our Results from P90

We finished up the P90 program on February 14th…All in all it is a great program; we never missed a day and followed for the most part the 21 Day Fix Portion program.  I didn’t lose the inches I did with 21 Day Fix but still improved my health so that’s the main thing.

Sherry P90I will say that we didn’t fully apply ourselves with having wine with meals. So I think what we might of shaped up to be if we had of fully stuck to the plan..but such is life…it’s still an improvement from where I was.

We are awaiting the arrival of 21 Day Fix Extreme; so in the meantime we are doing PiYo 😀

Since I started this journey in April 2014 I’ve lost 26.4lbs (started at 144.6) and lost 8.25″ off my stomach area…comes off slow but at least it comes off!
