Final Week of Transform 20!

 So I've made it to the end of this program and I'm sooooo happy!!  This is the 2nd program that I actually go until the end - even though I took 2 weeks off due to coming down with an awful cold.

My results aren't huge and I really didn't follow the nutrition plan - big FAIL!  But, I did go through a transformation.  Part of Shaun T's message is that this is not just a body transformation but it a transformation of your mind.  Many times we allow our minds to stop us from pushing forward, we give up because our mind tells us we can't.  I pushed through every morning and it wasn't easy because honestly, I don't like working out 6 days a week!  LOL!! Mornings can be rough and having to workout every morning was not easy.  I had to talk to myself every morning - the hardest part was getting out of bed.

I definitely got stronger.  Before Transform 20 I couldn't do any pushups at all, not even on my knees and let's not talk about triceps dips.  Now I can do a couple before my arms give out, so I'm very happy about that.

Here are my final numbers:

Measurements from 3/11:
Weight 192
Chest 43 1/2
Left Arm 13"
Right Arm 13 1/4"
Waist 36 1/2"
Hips 46"
Left thigh 25 1/4"
Right thigh 26 1/4"
Left calf 15"
Right calf 15"

Weight as of Sat 1/4: 193 lbs
Chest: 36"
Left Arm: 12.75"
Right Arm: 12.75"
Waist: 39"
Hips: 48"
Left thigh: 27.5"
Right Thigh: 28"

These were the hardest 6 weeks for me.

So, after 6 weeks of working out 6 days a week, am I happy with my results?  Yes & NO!

Yes because I know I've gotten better & stronger - both mentally and physically.
No because I didn't lose as much weight as I had wanted to, but that is my own fault.  You can't work off a bad diet and that is where I need to learn to control.
I'm an emotional eater and very quick to give in to my cravings.

So what's next?
I'm not 100% sure yet.  There are many options on Beach Body On Demand.
I thought of doing a 2nd round of Transform 20 along with Liift 4.
I was also thinking of trying out 80 Day Obsession.

So I haven't decided what program to do next, this is what I'll be deciding on this week.
What I do know is that I have to write out my meal plan and follow it!

What do you struggle with the most?
Fitness or Nutrition?

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.

After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.

Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
