My 90 Day Fitness Journey

 

IMG_2984My 3 Month Fitness Journey:  I learned that I love bulking and suck at leaning out! Also that Fitness competitions are not my thing and would rather nail every obstacle at a Spartan Race or apply for American Ninja Warrior. I was secretly deciding to enter the Beachbody Classic at Vegas this month, but nope maybe in the future, future.  I also learned I appreciate and love counting my macros instead. #IIFYM

To Start off these are my measurements. I started on March 10, 2014 and ended on June 7th.

10169234_10204070734718293_6557737053166784279_n (1)I love the Body Beast program! It’s great to do at home or the gym. Especially if you don’t know what to do once you get to the gym or at home. When I worked out at home I used the Bowflex Adjustable weights and a stability ball. That’s the only equipment. Lifting was between 8-30 pound dumbells. It depended on what the exercise was and type of set.  I dropped my cardio to 1-2 times a week during the first 9 weeks. After that I added more to it.

Ok so the HARD part: EATING!!! Ok I should of done a better lean bulk. I had to eat 2400 calories a day! I started the first few weeks really good, but it was so hard to eat clean. I was eating nonstop and felt full where I couldn’t eat enough, so I went the easy way and ate more junk then I was use to. Here are my progress pics from the beginning.10173226_10203610927943411_648610433_n10154873_10203610927903410_551023053_n

 

Day 1-Day 27

Day 1-Day 27

In 27 days, I didn’t put too much weight on. But by week 9 I had gained 11 pounds.  It was time to shred this crap off! I mean crap- literally! I was suppose to go down to 1200 calories a day….now remember I was at 2400 and had to immediately drop down to 1200! Who does that???? Well not me! I tried and was starving! I don’t know how these competitors do it! I am not disciplined enough to do it! So I had to go back to 1500 calories and kept my macros at 40p/30c/20f. After my 3 weeks of modified leaning out, I dropped 5 pounds and 8 inches. I’m not mad at that. I figured it took me 9 weeks to gain so I don’t plan on losing in 3. Here are the rest of my pics.

IMG_3083IMG_3067IMG_3062So…. I may not look as fit as I started, but guess what- hard work and dedication will get me back there! I am so much happier not having to starve cause that was just plain miserable! Thanks for stopping by and reading my blogg! Check back and I’ll have more updated pics and posts!

Day 64 of Body Beast/Bulking

photo.phpDay 64 of body Beast! I finally start the Beast phase or in other words cutting stage. It went by really fast! Thank goodness the bulking part is done! I didn’t follow a strict diet, but just did the calories. It was super hard at the beginning when I was going for the lean bulk. I’m excited to start doing more cardio again. I limited it to about 2 times a week which included teaching Insanity class and going to the Combative’s gym and doing some circuit training 1 time week. I also do a fit club, but I usually don’t push my self there. I’m suppose to limit cardio to one time a week….1502507_10203879218650511_6451551172737440266_n

These are my measurements from today and when I started. I’m ok with some of the measurements. I’m not liking the waist numbers. I can feel I gained weight and it makes me feel a bit miserable. I don’t know how people can bulk for longer then 2 months!  I feel blah and tired all the time. Even in my Insanity class, I do more modifications then usual. I think what keep me going is the motivation from my fitness groups and my hubby getting up in the morning.

Day 42 Body Beast

This is the program I'm currently doing.

This is the program I’m currently doing.

Happy Easter! I decided to update today instead of tomorrow since I’ll probably be pigging out all day and my measurements and weight will be off for tomorrow.

These are my stats from Day 1 to now. I’m excited that my chest and hip/butt went up! I’m a little confused on my waist. It looks and feels super big, but the measurements are consistent. 10250771_10203705306102806_598499034_nIMG_2012Yikes, as you can see, I did gain some weight in the midsection. I told myself that I will start cleaning up my eating. It’s been really hard to eat 2400 healthy calories! I was eating all day and full, making it up to only about 1900 calories. I still do my fit clubs for cardio on Tuesdays and Thursdays for cardio. I also gave a live Insanity class to about 150 soldiers since my last blog.10178174_10203705306142807_1010893492_nLast weekend I ran a half marathon, which totally sucked! I think it was the extra weight I put on;) Well maybe because I have not ran since February. I did manage to complete it at a decent time.10256045_10203705291662445_203498667_n10248800_10203705291822449_1805267286_nSo far I must say that I am ok with my results so far! Can’t wait for the Beast/shredding stage!

Day 27 Body Beast

This is the program I'm currently doing.

This is the program I’m currently doing.

I’m already on day 27! time is going fast. So fast that I started with the Lean workout schedule and decided to switch to the Huge Beast schedule. If I would of stuck with the lean beast, I would be in the Beast/shredding stage. I’m not ready. I want more muscle mass and not to mentionI like eating 2400 calories a day!

I did gain 6 pounds since I’ve started. It mostly went to my waist which I’m ok with for now. It should go away next month in the leaning out phase….It better! #TrustTheProcess….. My biceps and calves increased which is good. And at least my chest stayed the same….I don’t need them shrinking anymore! My diet isn’t so great, but it could be worse. It’s very hard for me to eat 2400 clean calories a day! I eat all day so I’ve been splurging here and there. Eating crap!! Today I start my 7 Day Shakeology challenge so hopefully it gets me back on track!

For those unfamiliar with the Body Beast program. It starts off by a Build and Bulk phase. During this phase, you are lifting heavy weights and eating more then normal. It is ok to gain weight! Then in the third phase, you will drop the calories/macros and lean out, leaving you with lean muscle!
