#FitnessFriday – update time!

Happy Friday ya’ll!  I know, I know, when was the last time I posted an update on me and my fitness.  It’s really been a long while.  So, let’s update…

What I’ve been doing:

Paleo Challenge

For the last six weeks I’ve been doing a Paleo Challenge. It’s a weird Paleo/Whole 30 hybrid type challenge.  I’ve had a couple cheat days along the way – Mother’s Day, my birthday….days when I just needed an ice-cream (I did put fresh fruit on it though I promise!)

I lost six lbs!

My digestive system loves me – lactose isn’t my friend and gluten isn’t the best, but its not the worst.  My skin is also amazing.

If you are interested in doing something like this I’ll be posting some of my favorite recipes soon here.  They got me by.  I’m just really proud I did what I did.  It was so hard but it was an amazing learning experience. I hope to ease up a bit, moderation is the key, but try to live as closely as possible to the idea surrounding the challenge I participated in.

**Because I did this challenge I learned that I can’t have gluten.  I haven’t been confirmed as having celiacs.  but myself and my youngest son are now living gluten free**


One month of the program and I hurt my knee.  There wasn’t a moment where I remember injuring it, but it was just swollen one day.  I tried to be careful, got a brace…but it didn’t get better and I started lazing on the working out.  I didn’t want to lose momentum though.  One of my bff’s here as the 10 Minute Trainer Program.  So right now I’m borrowing that, and being really good about icing and heating my knee.  I mean, how do you rest your knee with three kids six and under?  *can I get an amen from momma’s out there*

10 Minute Trainer

my new favorite work out!  I can customize it to fit what I can do during the day.  This proved to be super helpful while the hubby was gone recently.  Some days I found I had more time, so I worked in all three 10 minute workouts, sometimes I only did two.  They were quick and easy and I still felt like I was getting a work out.  I might not have been building muscle mass but it was good stuff.


Holy calorie burner batman!  It is so fun and I try to do this twice a week.

Creative Bio-Science 90 Day Challenge

I finished my first 30 Days of Creative Bio-Science’s 30 Day Diet.  This isn’t a diet pill.  It contains great herbal extracts like Raspberry Keytones, Lychee Fruit extract and African Mango.  It is designed to help curb your appetite and help increase your energy.  I noticed an immediate change in my appetite.  Combined with my diet and working out I lost the weight I already mentioned.  Now that I’m not as restrictive of a diet and my work-out plan will be changing I’m excited to see if it continues helping me like I think it did.
Check out Creative Bio-Science’s website for information on this and many other products they have.

90 Day Challenge with Creative BioScience

Happy Saturday everyone.  I hope everyone’s weekend is off to a wonderful start.  Now that I’m FINALLY 30 (dun dun dun) tonight will be the night to celebrate!  Whoop Whoop!  But, if you saw my Happies and Crappies post yesterday you might have noticed another reason for me to celebrate.  I’ve been working my little behind off to lose some weight and just to feel good.  I was really struggling before, with a lot of different things, but I know that working on this part of myself will lead to feeling good in a ton of other aspects of my life.  It started when my neighbor bought a Groupon to a CrossFit gym and the gym started a Paleo Challenge.  Its a six week challenge but is really similar to the Whole30, just tweaked a little bit.  Then after about a week of that I finally felt normal enough to start up on P90X again.  The first time I went through the training blocks I had great results.  I should have kept going but you know….life, having babies, hubby’s traveling got in the way (excuses, excuses).  So, now I’m committed to keep it going and I’m super excited about it.  I’m already seeing results and I want to make sure to keep you all updated.  I want to provide hope and encouragement to someone else like me.  If I can do this, with three kids running around then I know other people can do it too!

Here’s where the 90 Day Challenge comes in.  Thanks to the wonderful people at Business2Bloggers I was connected with Creative BioScience.  After speaking with one of their awesome consultants about what I’ve been doing and what my plan is she recommended I try the 30 Day Diet.

Quick slimming is not a new idea. Hollywood is famous for crash diets to trim down before the red carpet night, and we’ve got the right diet supplement to get you ready for your red carpet. The difference with 30 Day Dietâ„¢ is it doesn’t put a vat of cabbage soup in front of you and shame you into shunning normal food. Instead it combines clinically supported herbal extracts such as Lychee Fruit Extract, African Mango, and Raspberry Ketones for weight loss, increased energy, and greater appetite control. With a faster metabolism, more zip, and fewer cravings, you can’t help but lose weight.
So, not only will I keep you posted on my Paleo/Whole eating, my P90X, but also my 90 Day Challenge.  I’m really excited about the results I’ve seen already, as well as the reading I’ve done on Creative BioScience.  Check out their website and read for yourselves.  I will be also be giveaway some products to some of ya’ll…my amazing readers, so keep an eye out for that.  If you’re a blogger and what to have a chance to be involved in Creative BioScience’s blogging program check out the for more information.Creative BioScience Blogger 90 Day Challenge
