Haven't updated lately, as I've not been doing my normal workout routines. Still eating well but I've replaced the workouts with umpiring games nearly every night. It's still a hell of a workout, though.

I have a doctor's appointment for a routine checkup in two hours. We already saw the bloodwork, so this is going to be a BP, weight, etc. check.

This is as good a place as any to put this - my doctor's appointment was great today. He is thrilled with my weight loss and general fitness level. He was super happy with my blood report and doesn't want to see me for 6 months. Finally - he took me off of two of my medications. Of course, I had recently filled both of them and they are fairly expensive, but I'll deal.

Crawling back onto the wagon and getting more strict with my diet now. Also need to get back to exercising, I'm feeling much too flabby

Quick question for sparks19/Tanya! Your progress has definitely inspired me and sparked my interest in the Shaun T programs. Between the Insanity (and Insanity Deluxe) workout, the Hip Hop Abs, the Rockin' Body, and the Dance Party workouts (5 min Ab Blaster/Booty Shakin/Rockin Abs), which would you recommend starting with? My main goal is to burn as many calories as I can for now (building muscle is an added perk ).

It depends on what kind of thing you like

for me, Insanity is not something I could stick with. It's not fun for me LOL. It will definitely get the results but it's too intense for my liking.

Hip hop abs is good but I find Rockin Body to be a better work out. It's the perfect mix of fun, dancey moves with intensity. The cardio workouts really get your heart pumping and the muscle toning exercises really work each muscle group. The muscle toning ones are less fun LOL since they aren't really dancey but they have good music and really work.

This summer Shaun T is coming out with a workout called T25. it's a REALLY intense set of workouts that are only 25 minutes each. I'm pretty interested in seeing what that one is like. I'm hoping we do it at Fit club when my coach gets it.

So for right now, for what I like... I suggest Rockin Body. Perfect mix of fun with a GOOD workout



I finished up 45 minutes of Rock it out today... my booty is still sore from booty time so it's going to be killing me tomorrow lol.

A friend from my challenge group on facebook (slender by summer) gave me this t shirt

BEAST MODE

I thought this was a really good article. It's a lot in-line with the line of thought I've been exposed to lately, which basically is summed up as.. eat more, lift heavy weights.

That will lead to most people's perception of an body they are most comfortable with. I always thought that all I had to do to look good naked, is eat less and do cardio. I've learned since that there's no way to shape your body while eating less, the only way to do it is to eat more. I'm a lot happier with my physical condition since I had this epiphany, so the article, while written aimed at women, is definitely good to know for guys as well.

The author's before and after picture speaks volumes.



104LB on the left, and 126LB on the right. An pretty awesome change!

15 miles on the bike, 1 mile walking and running on the treadmill (approx 10 minutes walking, 3 minutes running at 6.2mph).

Awesome, thanks so much!

In addition to the Rockin' Body, Hip Hop Abs, Insanity, and Dance Party workouts, I also found Brazil Butt Lift (god knows how much I need it LOL) and the ChaLean Xtreme (which is apparently really intense?). So I have quite a few to work through. But right now, FUN sounds like a great idea so I'll start with that!

By the way, you look amazing

You're welcome

Ugh Brazil butt lift. Ask my fit club friends how I feel about that one LOL. I HATED it LOL... Definitely works though.

Chalene extreme isn't one I have done but I LOVE Chalene. I finished her Turbo jam 30 day challenge (got the t shirt... Literally lol) and I think I am going for turbo fire next. I finish my rockin body challenge this weekend so that will be my third challenge shirt earned

Thank you so much. I have been working so hard and it's so exciting to look in the mirror and see all the changes... A little less pooch here, a little more muscle there and tonight at worship team practice when I was singing I could really feel my abs tightening up as I was singing and using my diaphragm to project my voice lol
