Body Revolution Day 45 of 90

Day 45 = Cardio 2 + the halfway point

Well I have made it through the first 45 days.  I feel fantastic!  Sore, but fantastic!

As I began Cardio 2 this morning I thought to myself, I could do with some serious stretching(i.e. Yoga), but after about the first 7 minutes or so, I was feeling pretty good.  Well...until it came to Burpee time.  My first one down, I could hear my abs screaming at me, "What the Fu€K are you doing???"  I replied, "Suck it up!", and kept going.  The Burpees do get better, the stronger YOU get. 

Let me talk about "Fast Feet" or "Hot Feet" again.  I cannot watch the first set anymore.  I know I told you about this before, and I said, "Knees forward, butt back and GO!"...when I watch Mimi do them, I feel like an complete idiot, I don't feel like I am doing them correctly.  So now, I just close my eyes, but it's still tough to get it right.  When Omar and David do them, I watch their knees and for some reason I do it right.  Weird!!!!

The more you do the workouts, the quicker they seem to go by each time.  Time flies when you're having fun!  It's so great that these workouts are only around the 30 minute marker.  So far, the workouts have not exceeded 36 minutes...they have ranged from 26 minutes to 36 minutes in length, start to finish.  AWESOME!!!!

Today's food...
Breakfast: Steel Cut Oats with Apples & Pecans
I was going to have eggs and sausage, but I had a craving for the Oats instead. A girl can change her mind...right?

Lunch: NEW...Baby Spinach with Avocado, Pomegranate & Sunflower Seeds/Tomato, Avocado & Cheddar Burrito
Both the salad and the burrito are in the Fat Burning Meal Plan recipe book.
I kept putting this one off because I didn't think it would be that satisfying. I was wrong. The salad was quite nice. The citrus dressing is wonderful. I would even make the dressing up and put it on other salads. It would be really nice on a Chicken Spinach Salad for sure.

Getting it all together.
Lunch is served.
I definitely need some practice folding up the burrito.  Actually, I had to heat it up in my skillet because I was making pizzas in the oven for the daycare kids at the same time.  End result...the tortilla got a little too crispy.  It was still good.  This one is a great option for any vegetarians out there.

Snack: Chocolate Covered Carrot Cake Pop

Dinner: Barley with Turkey Sausage
We had to get to our son's school concert tonight, so it was nice to have something there to heat up and eat.  Remember my little slogan..."Heat and Eat!"

Since today was my halfway point, I wore my "healthy weight reward" shirt...remember that beautiful Paris Pink Lululemon top???  I was looking at my arms in it and I was admiring my hard work. 
I tried taking a picture of my shapely arm...
Okay, okay so I am showing off a bit. 

I have always disliked my arms.  I never liked anyone touching or grabbing my arms.  It's still hard to believe some days that my arms are getting defined with muscle, and not just blobs of fat.  Now I just need Jillian to kill the fat on my thighs.  Those Crossover Lunges...just might do the trick.  I can certainly feel them in my butt and hamstrings.

Tomorrow it's back to Abs central with Workout 7.  

Until then...Stay Strong!

Good night



  1. Whoo hoo! I am whistling at your arms!

  2. Thank you Meghan.

    I'm blushing...LOL

    Stay Strong!


  3. Yeah! You go girl! If you've got it flaunt it and you got it!

  4. Hi Trina! Your arms look amazing! I do have a question for you. I am new to BR 11 days to be exact:) I was wondering about the calories for some of her meals. I remember you writing that some of the calories are not the same as the book. So I joined myfitnesspal but entering the ingredients has been a task. Is there a certain way you do it. for example put sweet potatoes(for the hash) and there isnt a way to input one pound and a half. So, do you input all your meals or just some. Because sometimes I feel like Im not eating 1200 calories. Please help!!

    1. Hey Solis,

      Thank you. Congratulations on your first 11 days of Body Revolution.
      In regards to the calories, it all depends on the ingredients that you use in your recipes. Some times I found my numbers were higher than in the FBMP recipe book, others were lower. Like when using the chocolate, my calories were higher by about 50 or so. I have addressed this issue in today's blog(March 29th). I use a food scale to measure out many of my ingredients. I know it can be quite a task sometimes, but once you have entered YOUR recipe into the MFP recipe calculator, you won't have to do it again for that meal. You are worth the time it takes!
      There are some days where I haven't eaten enough, so I have had an orange or an extra snack to make up some calories.

      Nobody said it would be easy, but it does get easier as you go along. The recipe calculator does take some time to learn, but it too will get easier.

      You will learn how to make good food choices where ever you are.

      I hope this helps.

      Take care and Stay Strong!
