I don't know why its so hard

for me to keep up with this blog... I read them everyday but yet never find time to write in it.
So this week I decided to take a break from turbofire. I was doing the workouts as I was suppose to, but my eating was so off with different celebrations and birthdays and my work schedule was all over the place. I haven't been going crazy with my eating and I have been watching my portions fairly well I just want my turbo fire results to be good and to know I gave it the best that I could and I don't feel like this week is going to give true results so on Monday I am repeating week three and that will be the only week that would of have been skipped so I'm looking forward to getting back into it knowing there are no major distractions coming up.

How are you doing with your plan?

*I have a popchips review that I will be doing next week with a giveaway so keep an eye out for it!

loving turbo fire

so I have been loving turbo fire! The workouts are so fun so fast paced and kick my butt every time!!! I have been making my you tube videos still and you can view them and subscribe over to the left! Eating has gone well for me counting calories has been pretty simple using spark people. I never feel overly hungry and it is a lot easier for me to stay on track! I am about half away through week 2 and I have noticed some good results so far. I had a pair of skinny jeans that were pretty tight on my waist and now I can slide them off/on without unbuttoning them. I was actually wearing them yesterday while I was cleaning at my moms house and they kept sliding down so I wanted to use one of her belts and they were too small for me : ( that was a little saddening so I got my dads and he was like oh this should wrap around you twice (in a joking way) and it fit perfectly lol so I'm looking forward to when my moms belt fits me well lol

Last night I did eat off plan a bit and had a drink and didn't feel guilty about it and enjoyed it and normally when I did that I would feel guilty and mad at myself so I think that alone is progress!!!

Have any of you tried turbo fire or any other beachbody program?

5 day inferno results!

So I finished the five day inferno with awesome results and now am onto day four of the actual plan. I lost 4.4lbs in the first 5days and a total of 4inches all over. I love the plan so much it is so fun and the workouts go by super fast and I burn so many calories in it. I am liking calorie counting so much more then counting points right now. It's working better for me and I see a difference daily and it has made me really pay attention to what I am eating and make better choices after seeing how many calories I have used and how many I have left for the day. I have pretty much only been drinking water and I will make iced tea with tea bags which I love I never used to drink it and it tastes super yummy! I haven't been tempted or felt the desire to go out to eat at all when normally I wanted to at least once a week i don't know if it's because I have been keeping myself from getting super hungry by eating more filling snacks or if its just from seeing results and eating healthy and not eating a lot of packaged foods and not wanting to mess it up. I tell you one thing though, it really helps on the pocket book to be eating at home more. The other day I was pretty hungry and didn't really know what I wanted to eat and so I actually went into the cabinets and found something to make instead of just saying forget it and getting a pizza so that was huge for me. I have read about the changes that ww made and it sounds kind of confusing and I don't like how you decide how many points to use and add more or less whether you are gaining or losing I want something that tells me what to do. Not saying anything bad about it I just don't think it would be ideal for me at this point in my weightloss journey. I'm looking forward to what the scale will show me on Monday when I do my weight in I have seen some good progress this week so far!

Turbofire Five day inferno day 5

Well I have stuck to 5whole days of turbo fire!!! I love the plan the workouts are so awesome and so much fun and honestly the time flies while you are doing the workouts since they are so fast paced! Yesterday I was pretty tired and almost didn't do my workout when I got home but I told myself I am not going to get anywhere if I don't do them so I might as well just get it over with instead of feeling like crap the next day for not doing it and it worked : ) I have been keeping up with my youtube videos and I am about to publish my 5th one! I don't have any subscribers lol but it's still fun to do and I know that when I am done with the plan it will be awesome to see where I started from and how I was feeling and what struggles I faced. I am still trying to get some sort of meal plan figured out for myself that won't break the bank but that will be healthy and get me all the calories that I need. I have been consistently burning 600+ calories each workout and I want to make sure that I am giving myself enough fuel.

On another note I need a new header I messed mine up lol any tips on where I can do that at???

day3 is in the books!

today is day four of turbo fire I am down 2.8 pounds so far and not sure of how many inches since I wont be taking measurements till Sunday. I am loving the program so far! It is so fun and so fast pased and I cant wait to see the final result of the 5day inferno on Sunday. After that I will be jumping into the 12week program! I think this time is different for me first I really like the program which helps more then anything, two I have my youtube channel and I like making the videos everyday, and of course this blog. I also want to do it for myself and my husband not just the weightloss portion but finishing the plan. I have tried a lot of things and I never finish it, and this time I just want to get it done and actually complete something.
I went onto weightwatchers yesterday and printed out all of my fave recipes and put in a cancellation notice for my account so I need to work on a new title for my blog! Any suggestions? I know they just made some changes but with turbofire its essentually about calories in vs. calories out. For the first four weeks they want me eating around 1700 to lose 2lbs a week so I am trying to work on a meal plan for myself to help keep me on track, but I have been struggling a bit with meals and ideas for food that take me to the total. any healthy suggestions? I made a video for my day three if you want to check it out!
