Happy Friday ya'll! I know, I know, when was the last time I posted an update on me and my fitness. It's really been a long while. So, let's update...
What I've been doing:
For the last six weeks I've been doing a Paleo Challenge. It's a weird Paleo/Whole 30 hybrid type challenge. I've had a couple cheat days along the way - Mother's Day, my birthday....days when I just needed an ice-cream (I did put fresh fruit on it though I promise!)
I lost six lbs!
My digestive system loves me - lactose isn't my friend and gluten isn't the best, but its not the worst. My skin is also amazing.
If you are interested in doing something like this I'll be posting some of my favorite recipes soon here. They got me by. I'm just really proud I did what I did. It was so hard but it was an amazing learning experience. I hope to ease up a bit, moderation is the key, but try to live as closely as possible to the idea surrounding the challenge I participated in.
**Because I did this challenge I learned that I can't have gluten. I haven't been confirmed as having celiacs. but myself and my youngest son are now living gluten free**
One month of the program and I hurt my knee. There wasn't a moment where I remember injuring it, but it was just swollen one day. I tried to be careful, got a brace...but it didn't get better and I started lazing on the working out. I didn't want to lose momentum though. One of my bff's here as the 10 Minute Trainer Program. So right now I'm borrowing that, and being really good about icing and heating my knee. I mean, how do you rest your knee with three kids six and under? *can I get an amen from momma's out there*
10 Minute Trainer
my new favorite work out! I can customize it to fit what I can do during the day. This proved to be super helpful while the hubby was gone recently. Some days I found I had more time, so I worked in all three 10 minute workouts, sometimes I only did two. They were quick and easy and I still felt like I was getting a work out. I might not have been building muscle mass but it was good stuff.
Holy calorie burner batman! It is so fun and I try to do this twice a week.
Creative Bio-Science 90 Day Challenge
I finished my first 30 Days of Creative Bio-Science's 30 Day Diet. This isn't a diet pill. It contains great herbal extracts like Raspberry Keytones, Lychee Fruit extract and African Mango. It is designed to help curb your appetite and help increase your energy. I noticed an immediate change in my appetite. Combined with my diet and working out I lost the weight I already mentioned. Now that I'm not as restrictive of a diet and my work-out plan will be changing I'm excited to see if it continues helping me like I think it did.
Check out Creative Bio-Science's website for information on this and many other products they have.
