  • Another reminder about going above and beyond in your workouts these last couple of days. Seems intuitive that working out with more intensity or more time would burn more calories and therefor result in weight loss. I’ve seen a few posts since yesterday of people doing this and feeling freaked out that they gained weight. New training stimulus past what your body is accustomed will result in inflammation and when we are inflamed, our muscle pulls in water for recovery. A normal process but that water means an increase in weight. I’ve gained as much as 6 lbs when I have started a new workout routine or increased difficulty. So consistency in workouts is key in these last few days, not increasing. If you want to increase movement do something that likely won’t make you sore like a leisure bike ride or walk. Rest, sleep and stretching will be your friend this weekend. And as always WATER!

Thank you for this reminder again! It has helped me a lot. My weight loss was stalled. Staying consistent with workouts this week, really tracking my food choices, and the scale is moving again. :smiley:Yay! Thanks for being a great coach!!! I am looking forward to starting #mbfa next Monday!

Megan you should set up another dietbet.. I believe many of us would join just to have your support.

  • So, after two months I think I finally reached a plateau. Not only I stopped losing weight, I actually gained a lot of weight, it sucked. I am pretty sure many of you have gone through this and is discouraging. I decided that probably I need to turn on the heat on my exercises. This morning there was more running, higher resistance on my regular exercises I felt the pain again of working out, not horrible pain, just that I am giving a challenge to my muscles. After that I had another work out session with the wife. She really didn’t want to get out of bed though, But it was fun. Poor woman she had no idea what she signed up for. Remember, 7 more days. Try your best and no matter what other people say, no matter what the scale says, be the best you can be. Happy Monday everyone.

  • Ok- I NEVER take photos without a shirt on. But, I’m down nearly 35 lbs since April and I’m getting stronger every day. I started mbf when it first dropped, and I’m on my 2nd round of mbfa. When I first started these programs I had to modify most things, but I am now doing sit throughs, surrender lunges, pushups and planks with no modifications!! I use 20 lb weights for chest work and a lot of the leg work. I push myself and sweat like crazy, but I love it. Confidence is a state of mind, and I may just start taking all my pics without a shirt on 😉
    Oh and my daughter watches everything I do, which keeps me pushing harder and farther. ❤ lets keep crushing it!!

  • Whenever I start working with someone, one of my first questions is, “Who at home needs to be doing this with you?”

    Too often do I have someone who says, “I want my kid to start training but I’m not going to.” “I’ll train but my spouse isn’t into this sort of thing.”

    The thing is, this doesn’t have to be about weight loss. Everyone needs movement and healthy foods in their life to live optimally and with energy every day. Working out and eating right should be like brushing your teeth. It’s just something you do to take care of you.

    Not everyone needs to do the same thing. When my family started making their transformation in my pre-teens, I started with sports, my dad and brother started with weight training and my mom started with dance. But everyone recognized movement as important and we all came together to make healthier food choices. What good would it have been for my brother and I to continue to eat pizza every other night (for real was how often we ate pizza before) and my parents to start eating healthier? Rick and I would have had those same bad habits to battle later still.

    It’s not easy to get everyone involved, but it starts with one person being a leader and setting the example. That’s YOU. Have discussions with people you see every day about what your fitness journey means to you and invite them! It helps them be a better supporter of your goals and you might be surprised of the ripple effect you create!

Even when I ask for support, I feel like my hubby sabotages me all the time. The struggle is real in my house.
