Day 3 & 4

Well, yesterday I did get up and did Cardio 1 after all. I did not do it again in the PM though. I figure with me walking to work and doing exercises with the residents and walking up and down the stairs etc that was enough exercise.

This morning I did Disc 1 again and I came home and just finished Cardio 1.

I had to have a piece of toast on day 3 cause I felt so bad, and what a difference. Twenty minutes after I ate it I felt so much better. It is a low calorie wheat bread. I really dig that spicy hummus from Trader Joe’s.

I had to go to a lunch outing with Residents today so I am still full. Haven’t had dinner yet. Maybe after my shower I will have something small.

Tomorrow day 5 will start with Disc 2. We are having a 50’s party tomorrow at work. Sure to be a busy day.

Day 2

Wow this kickstart plan is knocking me out. I can’t wait till I can have some bread again man. My morning workouts are fine but the cardio at night is like wiping me out big time. I feel like an 80 year old. I am tired, I am sore, I can’t friggin walk. But I won’t quit, a big hell no to that. I am going to bed and getting up for day three tomorrow. Now day three lists I am to do that cardio twice. That is a negative. I will do disc 1 again and Cardio tomorrow evening. The food is good, I am not starving but my energy level is way down. I am grateful for her pills at this point, at least they are giving me energy. Having myself a potato on Sunday. πŸ™‚

Week 1 Menu

7 Day Kick Start Menu Plan

BREAKFAST:

( Two Jillian Michaels Calorie Control Pills )

I will have two eggs ( made in sandwich maker and olive oil cooking spray ) two pieces of turkey bacon, 1/4 avocado and 3 grape tomatoes. I bought the really expensive cage free eggs with the Omega 3 and Vitamin E and they taste pretty damn good. I also had some multivites gummy vitamins.

MORNING SNACK:

( Personal Modification )

Jillian’s program does not call for a morning snack, however with my schedule and how I feel I am allowing myself one and it isΒ  Green Iced Tea with 1 tablespoon Honey and 1/4 cup of raw whole almonds.

LUNCH:

( Two Calorie Control Pills )

Vegetable Soup with Poached Chicken Breast, you will find this recipe in her BR kick start booklet. I will have my seltzer water ( La Croix )

AFTERNOON SNACK:

You are allowed an afternoon snack. I will be having the carrots and peppers with hummus. I love to cook but I hate making hummus so I got the spicy hummus from Trader Joe’s.

DINNER:

( Two Calorie Control Pills )

I will have either the Steak and Salad or Tilapia and Salad dinner menu options in her kick start booklet.

WATER:

I will be having 8 glasses of water either plain or no sodium seltzer and you are allowed to have 400 mg caffeine and I will get this with the Jasmine Green Tea with 1 tablespoon honey ( 60 calories )

MY FITNESS PAL:

( MFP )

I use this on my phone everyday. It provides a better understanding to the 1200 calories a day plan which is the average suggestion for female weight loss.

These are my stats for the day:

1200 Calorie Goal

1487 Total Food Calories I consumed today

600 Calories Burned ( DISC 1 and Cardio 1 workouts )

887 Net Food Calories ( After Burned Calories )

313 Remaining Calories

I stayed under the calorie goal of 1200 and I am not falling into starvation mode. MFP will let you know if you are not eating enough. In the event of this or if I am feeling hungry I will have some almonds. This is why I am allowing myself a morning snack. Falling under your goal of 1200 will give you weight loss. πŸ™‚

This kick start is only for a week because it is intense. It is high protein and fiber. It also gives you good fats and good cholesterol foods. Options are limited this week so try to do the best you can. Hopefully you are not too picky.

Day One Part Two

JULY 2011

Don’t let that lame attempt at bangs fool you, My face always gains or loses weight. I hated how I looked and felt during this vacation. Even though I did have fun.

Image

JUNE 2012

This is Sean and I on our recent vacation. We had so much fun and I can tell from this picture that we look much better this year than last year. I think we feel better too. I am not going to lie, we ate and drank badly on our vacation but did not do too much damage.

I have decided to do the Body Revolution again because I enjoyed it the first time around and this time I can do the more advanced moves, limit some of the modifications and use heavier weights.

This time I am starting program with jump start menu and workout plan. I did not do this the first time around. Today is day one. I will post the menu I will follow after this post. Today I did Phase 1 disc 1 after breakfast and tonight after dinner I will do Cardio 1.

Another different thing I am doing this time is I am using Jillian’s calorie control pills. I found a good deal on them and found they work. So I am taking these in conjunction with the diet and exercise plan.

I am glad this jump start is only a week because it is going to be rough on me as far as my schedule goes. Double workout’s are going to make me tired boy! I locked in my weight and after a week I will report just what I lost. This is a detox week and I need it. πŸ™‚

Finish Line Day 90

Image

Today is day 90. I completed Jillian Michaels Body Revolution. It took hard work, commitment to get to this point.Β  I have lost some pounds, inches and gained muscle. I would like to lose ten more pounds and get even more toned so I think that when I get back from vacation I will start this program again. I would like to do the advanced moves with heavier weights the second time around.

These workout’s are not easy, at times I did not even want to get up and work out but I did and I am glad I did and did not give up. I would like to thank my husband for his support and doing this with me and all the people who followed this blog and showed their support along the way.

Wooooooohooooooo! πŸ™‚

Day 88, Two more days to go!

Almost at the finish line. We thought it was today but nope, I have two more days. Just finished a cardio. I really like how my body looks today compared to what it looked like 88 days ago. Ive lost 25 pounds, many inches and gained lots of cool muscles. I can workout with 8-10 lb weights now. I could not do that before. I am proud, I am tired. πŸ™‚

Day 84

Oh my six more days and it will be 90 days? Really? This is the first time that I have did a plan like this for this amount of time. Sure Ive embarked on other diet’s and exercises but I would get tired or bored and quit them after probably a few weeks.
I just finished disc 12 and I am drenched, shaking and tired. Starting out with 3-5 pound weights to finishing with 8-10 pound weights is an accomplishment I am proud of.

I did this for myself. I am proud. I will continue to take care of myself and give myself me time to work out. I am committed to this. Just as I am committed in my marriage, my friendships, job etc.

I have not had the time to post my menu for this week. It is all healthy, I did put more fruit and vegetables in this week’s menu because Ive been missing them. I really love Asian pears. I feel I am prattling on right now I am so drained. It takes a lot of will power to come home after a hard day at work and suit up to work out. On days I do not want to even work out, I do anyway. I make myself and when it is over I am glad I made myself. πŸ™‚


Day 80, 81, 82

I am confused on what the hell I did do! Ive been so busy. Yesterday I worked and it was my rest day but today I did Cardio 1 instead of 3.

Tomorrow I will do 11 again. I will also be making my food for Menu 13.

I am adding more fruits and vegetables this week and drinking tea instead of coffee and stepping it up more because I want to lose a bit more before vacation in two weeks.

I will keep going as I have been until I reach my weight goal. Then I will still exercise and cook my ownΒ  meals but try to maintain the weight. I like using my fitness pal. I feel it helps me not to overeat or make bad food choices.

Overall I am really happy that I did BR. I might even do it again or sell it on Ebay for someone else to use. Ive taken care of everything in package. I want to get her kickbox dvd soon. I will post menu tomorrow. πŸ™‚

Day 77, 78, 79

I did disc 11 on 77 and 12 on 78 and I just finished Cardio 1 on day 79. I know it should be Cardio 3 but I don’t like it and it makes a lot of racket and I live upstairs. Some movement is better than no movement right? My shorts fell off during running man’s and I have been strutting around half naked lately because I like how I look and even Mr. Adams likes how I look. He said I had a pretty butt! What? Ive never heard such a compliment and you know what it is a sweet compliment that I will take anytime!

Tomorrow is day 80! Ten more days on this program. I am glad I did this program. No regrets. I will continue to cook my meals in a healthy way and do regular exercise. This has been hard. How could someone do such hard work just to piss it away and have to start over again? Hell I ain’t getting any younger. No way not this Kat! I am going on a vacation soon and I am sure that in those four days I will not exercise much and I am sure I will eat and drink all that is bad, but you can be damn sure the day I am back I am exercising and getting back on track. I will probably gain five pounds but I will lose it.

I promise myself I will! πŸ™‚
