  1. I asked myself the same question. I know in the first pick I was relaxed. I was not pushing my belly out but, I was relaxed. In the second picture I was not holding my breath but now-a-days I do stand taller and with better posture so I think I might draw my muscles in more or not be so slouchy - like in the first pic. I have lost 10 pounds and am continuing to focus on building muscle.
  2. Thanks Michelle! I am loving the changes that are happening! You are an inspiration to us all here, thanks for taking the time!
  3. Thanks Steve! Your reply is very helpful! Have an awesome day!
  4. Today I taught Body Pump and Zumba. I am working on eating basically the same things everyday. My plan is - morning: to have bananas and maybe a pear or an apple. Snack: 4-5 frozen bananas blended with a bit of almond milk and vanilla. Lunch: Salad or raw tacos or wrap with avocado and nuts Dinner: More salad or zucchini pasta Snack: Melons, pears or dates- whatever I feel like having.
  5. Hey Dylan, The pics were taken 49 days apart. But the measurements and changes didn't start happening until I went Vegan, which was in the last 22 days.
  6. Thank You for taking the time to notice and comment! It means a lot!
  7. Thanks Fallen Horse! Thanks for asking, Jungleinthefrunk! During the past few months it has been pretty varied because of the holiday's and other things that came up. What is pretty consistent though is that I have been doing 2-3 hours of cardio per week usually teaching Zumba and riding my bike and I teach 2 Body pump classes per week. In case you are not familiar with Body Pump, it is basically a strength training class that goes after the 8 major muscle groups- 1 song per group. Because I teach that class it makes it kind of hard to train heavy in the way that I would like (two muscle groups per day) because I need the recovery time. So what I have been doing is something like this- Monday Tuesday Body Pump @ noon Zumba @ 6:30 Wednesday Thursday Ride bike for 1 hour total to the gym and back Full Body heavy lifting in the GYM Friday Train Abs/ Zumba Saturday Body Pump at 10 am I am planning on finding ways and times to train heavy more often and will for sure start training my abs more often.
  8. Yeaaa! Getting there! First pics is 50 days ago after pics are yesterday.
  9. The before pictures were taken 50 days ago the afters were taken yesterday! On my way!!!!
  10. Also, will you tell me where you found the article you are talking about?
  11. Hello I just started looking into this and am committed to give it a go for at least 100 days. I am not sure if I will modify it or not. So far I have but these days were pre-100 day commitment. Please keep sharing as we have similar goals!
  12. Okay so far today I have eaten bananas, carrots, a HUGE salad with a small avocado and a tsp of Olive Oil. I also had a fruit smoothie with strawberries, melons and pineapple- Yummy! I may do Body Pump today but have been taking it easy because starting in 2 weeks I will be teaching 6 classes a week or more so I am enjoying the rest!
  13. All right! I won the 9 day prize! Woohoo! I have been studying the 80/10/10 diet a bit and have ordered the book. This is day 10 of my detox cleanse. I am eating 95% RAW Today I have already eaten 6 bananas and a ton of fruit and veggies. My daughter is still home from child care for the holidays so I might do Body Pump at home today.
  14. Thanks Robert, I am easing into a raw food cleanse and am thinking that my new plan will be something like this- Water and then Juice in the morning Green smoothie with banana's, apple, fruit and greens with some almond milk Huge green Salad for lunch with avocado and then juice the rest of the day. Today that has been about what I did. Not sure if I am going to train today.
  15. Day 7 of my detox- I modified it by adding avocado and banana because I taught 3 classes today- Core Express, Zumba and Body Pump. I also added apricot seeds because I read that they real prevent and fight against cancer.
  16. Day 6 of my detox. About to make a juice feast. I teach a Zumba class tonight so that will be full blown cardio and will have family over today so the rest of the day will be focused with them. Yesterday, I almost went off of my cleanse (not really but the urges were intense, especially when my roomie served up a big sit- down Christmas dinner with all of the fixings) and then I saw Oprah's premier of Crazy, Sexy, Cancer and she also featured a Vegan author. That gave me the boost that I needed mentally.
  17. I have been taking creatine but I was also eating meat. Would love to hear feed back about creatine? Take it yes or no? How do you take it? How does it fit in a vegan lifestyle? Which creatine do you take?
  18. Merry Christmas! Day 5 of my detox and it is Christmas day. I did train abs yesterday, lightly and will most likely learn some new Zumba routines today and maybe train shoulders at home.
  19. Thanks for the advice! That goal came from looking at the height and weight of another fitness model who is my height and looks great. I am not positive that my body fat percentage is 12.6% I am using the Jackson Pollock method and using calipers to measure 4 sites but when I take my measurements I am not so sure the body fat percentages are correct however, 5- 7 pounds of fat loss would probably leave me exactly where I desire to be. Did I tell you that I LOVE this website? It is really helping to keep me focused and inspired. I really want to create phenomenal results, so that I can be a living testament to all of my meat eating body builder friends! Merry Christmas and thanks for taking the time to read and reply!
  20. Christmas eve. I am chillin in my jammies and hanging out with my family. It is day 4 of my detox and I am feeling better. My husband is getting inspired to eat in a more natural way. He has been affected by the American Diet. He has 6 pack abs but his blood pressure went up from the sodium in the processed foods. Yesterday I did a full body training but with lighter weights than normal. Today I plan on training abs.
  21. Thanks for creating such a wonderful space and thanks for the support!
  22. Great Job! Keep up the good work! Are you going to train today?
