I Want To Revolt Now!
Yes, I have started to REVOLT! Who am I revolting against?.....Myself, of course.
This year I told myself I was going to start working out again and take better care of myself. I really mean is now that I've hit my 40's I require more maintenance - more often:)
Right before I became pregnant with my daughter, I was in the best physical shape of my life. I was working a physically demanding job and was proud of how strong and fit I had become. I had just hit 30 and never had any problems with my weight. I ate whatever I wanted, worked out only here and there and it was smooth sailing.
Now my daughter is 9 years old and smooth sailing has hit some choppy waves. I quit my very physical tiling job to stay at home with my daughter. I am lucky that I still don't have any weight issues, but I have become severely out of shape. Since becoming a blogger, my butt spends way too much time glued to the couch in front of my laptop. In fact, I seem to have lost it somewhere and developed an extremely serious case of flat ass.
I saw the opportunity to become a #RevoltNowFit blogger and jumped on it. I thought this would be exactly what I needed to get moving and stay motivated. My goal is to tone and strengthen every muscle and build stamina. I want to get out and do the things I used to without getting short of breath or tiring too easy. I want to be a toned and active 41 year old hottie.
I have received free access to Revolt with Nicole Huntsman in exchange for weekly blog posts of my fitness progress and honest review of the program. It is very reasonably priced at only $9.99 a month. Receive weekly meal plans with recipes and each day's easy to follow workout videos. Nicole does a fabulous job with the videos. I like following and listening to her. Each week's workout includes cardio days and strength training days. I like that the workouts change from week to week so I won't get bored.
As a Revolt member you also receive access to the "For Members Only" Facebook group. This group is excellent for moral support, tips, resources and good old motivation. I believe sharing stories (good and bad) with others going through the same thing is very helpful and comforting.
I will admit after week 1, I was disappointed in myself. I knew getting started would be the hardest, but holy crap on a cracker! I didn't do all the workouts and I'm struggling with the diet. I'm a pretty picky eater and have a big sweet tooth, but I'm going to keep trying. And on a side note, Wednesday evening Rachel decided to fall out of a tree and break her arm. So much for workout fun with mama.
Come see me every Sunday for my weekly updates and information on how to join me on the #RevoltNowFit program. I will be posting some before pictures with measurements soon and then regularly throughout the next 12 weeks.
I'm looking forward to having crepes tomorrow for breakfast to kick off week 2! So glad the week 1 detox diet is over. I really don't want to see another hard boiled egg for quite some time.
Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received free access to Revolt for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.
