Anything is possible if you've got the nerve. You see- it is about effort and bringing effort every. single. day.
That is where progress and change occurs. Complete dedication.
I'm two weeks in and have seen BIG changes. I SEE them. The scale is still a whore. She always has been and always will be. If I only went by the scale- I'm down ZERO POUNDs.
But oh, my progress is SO MUCH MORE.
Here is a comparison of start to two weeks in based on my measurements I shared with all of you.
How? Here are the RESULTS I have gotten in two weeks.
Thigh: 23.75--22 = -1.75
Waist: 32.5--31 = -1.5
Chest: 35--34= -1
Bicep: 11.5-- 11.5 = -0
Neck: 12.5-- 13 = +.5
Hips 38.5--37 = -1.5
Total of 5.25 inches LOST in two weeks!
So, I will complete my two week photos asap but here is just a snippet of the tummy start and two week mark! FOR REAL!!
And yes, for all you doubters, I was flexing in BOTH photos... and just in case the no face photo makes you disbelieve a bit too... check out the one with my face and same shirt.
Wake up early. Exercise. Eat. Repeat. Sleep.
2. No excuses.
All of you all know that I am just a regular gal like you. A mom of two. Full time job. Real life obligations. However, I leave no room for excuses. Excuses are the killers of dreams, the killers of progress and the killers of transformation.
Funny thing, (okay more honest then funny), I have heard quite a few people lately say they have stopped getting results. However, in discussion with a few of these very lovely people, there are factors that have played into the plateau of results and/or lack of results:
You're following the meal plan-- sometimes.
You will not get results from something you are half-assing. Simple. Stop adding things to your food that are not on the plan. Adding extras increases calories, fats, carbs, and proteins which throws off the entire meal plan. So, if you are wondering if you can add sour cream, dressing, sauces... just stop. You are messing with the point of a meal plan- balance.
You're following the food of the meal plan but still have your sugary drinks & alcohol.
Moderation is an IMPORTANT aspect here. Sure, have your ONE glass of wine a week. Have your whiskey but NO MIXER. Yep... sorry ladies and gents- sugar is definitely going to impact your results greatly. (That includes fruit and adding extra things to your protein!)
You hit the gym 2x a week.
Sure. You'll get results, but not as quick as coming more often. Plus you have to ask yourself- what do you do with the other 5 days? Are you active, running, completing finishers?? Can't just sit on your rear on the couch? Got to get up and BURN those calories! A combination of cardio and lifting is the fastest way to increase your metabolism and get results.
Remember 30% gym 70% kitchen. Don't ruin your results you are working your booty off for by eating like CRAP.
So, today I leave you with these two videos.
We need to make our goals possible- believe in the I'mPossible movement. But what you need to also realize is that children are imitators. So- give them something powerful to imitate. Get them to understand their power young and watch them become passionate individuals!
