Body Revoluiton Day 36 of 90

Day 36 = Workout 5

Hellooooo...ooohhh...owwww...Triceps again.  This workout is a killer on the Triceps, BUT DO NOT BE AFRAID.  It's only 36 minutes long, and NO you don't work the triceps 36 minutes straight.  It's a good one, but you, at least I am glad when it's done.  Workout 5 is the one with the Cable Punches in it.  I was a little better at it today, however I think my cable has much more resistance then say...Omar' looks like he has no resistance at all...sorry Omar...I'm just callin' it like I see it.  One more trip to Workout 5 for me on Thursday, and this DVD will go back into the folder.

Today's food...
Breakfast:  I had planned on making the Denver Omelet this morning but since my son decided that he wasn't going to get up when I called him(March break over, first day back to school, stayed up way too late last night, I told him he would be tired in the morning if he didn't get his butt to bed...he didn't listen)
So instead I had a Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffin.  With trying to get him ready, making his lunch and waiting for the new little addition to the daycare, I forgot to take a picture.  You have seen it before though.  I find these muffins a bit on the dry side.  My favorite muffin out of the 3 muffin recipes in the Fat Burning Meal Plan recipe book is the Blueberry Banana ones.  I don't find them dry at all.  Oh well, with the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip one I had this morning, I was able to down 3 cups of water while eating 1 muffin.  They are not THAT dry, I just love drinking water, however, I do find that I drink more with these than the others.

Lunch: Roasted Chicken with Whole-Wheat Pasta & Spinach Pesto
Remember the other day when I made this for lunch???  I divided it into servings and placed them in Ziploc bags.  I kept one in the fridge because I knew I would be eating it today, and the others I threw in the freezer.
These pictures were from last week.

Snack: Oranges with Lemon Yogurt Cream

This is a nice light snack.  Very refreshing. 
I used low-fat Greek Vanilla Yogurt, so I did not use the honey as it's stated in the recipe.

Dinner: Broiled Cod(it was to be Mackerel) with Lemon (Caper) Vinaigrette served with Roasted Shiitakes with Fresh Thyme & Red Onions
I used Cod instead of Mackerel and I didn't have any capers, so I made the recipe without them.

I loved this.  My husband thought there was too much garlic.  The kids had some leftover Almond Crusted Chicken.

I am making some homemade Cinnamon Raisin Bread right now.  I just put it in the oven.  It will be great for breakfast in the morning.

In addition to today's food already posted, I had some of the CheeCha Puffs that we bought yesterday at the show.
The nutritional information is in the MFP food data base.  I guess you could say these are my so called CHEAT food because I didn't make them myself.  Once they are gone...they're gone.

  I just want to thank everyone that has been reading about my journey through Body Revolution.  Many of you say that I am an inspiration to you and that is GREAT!  I am glad that I can help you to become a Healthier Version of YOU.  With your kind words, you inspire and motivate me to stay strong to continue on MY journey of becoming a Healthier Version of ME.  

Thank you so much for reading and following.

I must go check on the bread now, I will let you know how it turned out...tomorrow.

Until then...Stay Strong!

Good night.



  1. You can never have enough garlic! If I didn't have so many leftovers to go through right now I'd make that chicken pasta right now. It looks fabulous.

    1. Hey Catherine,

      My thoughts exactly in regards to the garlic. I love it!


  2. I'm still in Phase one, but already I'm terrified of more triceps! I like the tricep kickbacks, but oh man, the overhead tricecp extensions in Workout 1 just kill me. The next time I do Workout 1 I'm going to have to give them my all to prepare for the pain that is yet to come!

    Your cod dinner looks delicious!

    1. Hi Kelly,

      Thanks for reading my blog. Don't be terrified, you are doing terrific. Your triceps will be ready for the next phase, once you complete phase 1. You will be that much stronger that you will WANT more of a challenge. You'll be like..."Bring it on Jillian!"

      Stay strong!

  3. I'm going to make the blueberry banana muffins today!! You've inspired me to try some of the recipes and I have to say, so far I've been very pleased. I'm addicted to the quinoa crunch in my greek yogurt now!!

    The chicken and spinach pesto looks really good!

    Looking forward to more tricep moves! I have total bat wings under my arms...LOL!!!

    Keep up the great work! I love reading your are super inspiring!!!!

    1. Hi Helene,

      Thanks for following and introducing yourself to me through MFP.
      The recipes in the Fat Burning Meal Plan are great. There are still some that I haven't tried yet, like a lot of the soups I haven't made. We are not really soup eaters in our home, only when ill.

      Workout 5 will definitely help with the "bat wings" LOL!

      Take care and Stay Strong!
