Katie-Not for the faint of heart!!

Hello Fam~
It has been awhile for all us but especially me. I hadn't been posting mainly because I wasn't seeing any results or progress and wasn't feeling very motivated. So mom challenged me to do the 25 day Xtreme Fat Loss program. It started out yesterday with a "cheat" day. Sweet! Eat whatever I want all day and complete what is known as a "density" workout.. mainly lifting weights in various directions and ways. Not too shabby at all. Great diet so far!
Today was another story.... Fast day! Bascially lots of water supplemented with BCAA (branch chain amino acid pills) LONG day! Woke up hungry like I usually do and stayed that way for most of the morning. My poor patients had to listen to my stomach growling in their ears today! Today did a different sort of weight lifting workout and then a high intensity interval training for 20 min and 30 min of moderate cardio. After work I was DRAGGING and did NOT feel like going to the gym to do my cardio and interval training but I did and surprisingly gained some energy. I added a little crystal light to my water after I got home and let me tell you, those 5 little calories helped a ton!!
So I survived my first Fast Day and I have to say I am pretty proud of myself! Tomorrow is shake day. Will let you know how it goes!

  1. This definitely sounds interesting! You are doing such a great job with it - it is inspiring me to do it too. Maybe I can talk FL into doing it with me! Love you! Mom
