Revolt Fitness: Week 2

Last week marked my second full week of my Revolt Fitness challenge, and I'm happy to report that my scale and tape measure are still being nice to me, with a weight loss this week of 2 pounds. That, to me, is awesome considering I fudged up the schedule this week like it was my job.

I stuck to the diet and workout plan strictly from Monday to Wednesday. Thursday however I was at a series of events for work from 7 am to 7:30 p.m. and I couldn't bring any of my prepackaged meals. I tried to maintain composure and "eat right" but I did cave in to a cookie and 2 glasses of white wine throughout the day. Friday was slightly better, until Brewfest, a beer tasting festival, where I indulged in nearly 15 tiny cups of "empty calories," followed by a rich dinner, and zero time to work out. Then of course Sunday was Mother's Day, so during the morning brunch I inevitably took in too much.

BUT despite all that, this week I lost 2 pounds and my measurements are beginning to shrink! This program really works if I can screw up so much and still lose anything. Now that Detox Week is over, the weekly diet plans allow a few more liberties, and so far I have enjoyed all the meals. I tried to photograph my nice lunch (salmon, wild rice, salad, and asparagus) but Earl had other plans. He is such a doll: distracted more by attention than fish!


What I love about Revolt is the simplicity, as I said last week, but I simply have to reiterate. I enjoy the ease of use of the workout and meal regiments. I could spend hours perusing fitness magazines, recipe websites, Youtube, and Pinterest looking for workouts and meals I like; instead, Revolt Fitness puts everything I need in one place, including meal plans with recipes and new workout videos daily. For a low monthly fee, users can access the site and the helpful Facebook community.

What was different this week was my tolerance for junk. While I had a little extra on Friday and was fine, I tried to have a big pasta dinner on Sunday (I took a free day despite my lapses, bad me!) and was NOT feeling well afterward. I didn't believe the people who'd gone through these weeks before me that my food desires would actually change, but since I've started, I find myself wanting to graze less, craving healthier, lighter-feeling foods, and to boot, I am never hungry!

This week is Week 3, and in my book, make it count week. I will be in Costa Rica on the beach in less than a week, so this is my time to shine! My challenge will be keeping up my progress on vacation. I won't have the meal plans but I will at least have more knowledge to choose my foods appropriately.

Week 2 Weight Loss: 2 lbs
Weight Loss Overall: 6.2 lbs

Measurements:
Bust: -.5" (the jiggle up top is not worth the jiggle in the middle)
Thigh: -.5"
Neck: -.5" (didn't see this one coming at all, but I'll take it)
Waist: -1.5"
Hips: -1"
