Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful Mum's out there! YOU ROCK!
How convenient for me that today happens to be my rest day as well.
These beautiful flowers were part of MY day!

With all that being said, here are my Body Revolution Results...
"Before" Body Revolution pictures/measurements and "After" Body Revolution pictures/measurements.
Sorry the pictures are so dark. We were kind of in a hurry, because these pictures were taken before "Breakfast in Bed". I hope you can see a difference. I can certainly feel one.

Before After After
Well here is MY version...
See...I told you I needed a tan!
I know I don't have any before pictures of this area, BUTT...pun intended. I can tell you now that there has been a HUGE change in this part of my body. These "After" pictures will become my "Before" pictures for the next Phase of my Journey to a Healthier Version of Me.
NOTICE: For all those women who have had C-sections...I have had two of them. Again, it is still a work in progress, but notice that gross area of flab below the belly button region??? That's right!!! There's not much there anymore!!! Hard work and determination will get you there too.
Let's talk cellulite...yes we all have it. It just shows up more on some, than on others. As you can see in the second picture...it still shows on my side, but not nearly as much as it once did. Whew!!!
Here are my Starting Measurements and my Finishing(BR) Measurements...

So...those are my Body Revolution Stats and I am very happy with my results. As I have mentioned in previous posts, there is still work to be done. I am still trying to hit my weight loss goal of getting down to 130lbs. Once I hit that goal, I will then see if that is where I wish to be or not. I still want to do more toning of these new muscles of mine. I will continue to EAT CLEAN and EXERCISE to achieve my goals.
I hope that all of you have great results with the Body Revolution Program. If you stay focused, you will succeed. Take each day as it comes in regards to the workouts. You will get stronger as you go along. Don't worry if you are not doing each move "perfectly", you will improve each and every time you do that move(except for maybe Fast Feet...I still look like a spaz doing that one...LOL) Plan your CLEAN meals and snacks so that you stay on track and have fun with it.
Happy Mother's Day!
Breakfast: IN BED: Multi-Grain Pancakes with Berry Maple Syrup
My children brought me gifts along with breakfast in bed. They are the best! I think?! LOL They two of them ended up eating about 1/3 of my breakfast. They were like, "mmm...pancakes..." I was happy to share with them.
Stay Strong Necklace Contest Winner...
And the winner is...
Congratulations to the winner!
Thank you all for taking part in my little contest.
Really...we are ALL winners for taking the time to make the change, and take care of ourselves by eating CLEAN and EXERCISING.
My friend Donna came over today to make some REALLY GOOD muffins. Together we made a double batch of Carrot Banana Muffins. We also whipped up a single batch of Banana Berry Muffins from the same recipe, only we left out the carrot and walnuts. So GOOD!
That would bring me on to my lunch for today...
Lunch: Carrot Banana Muffin/Banana Berry Muffin
After we took the muffins out of the oven, we let them cool and then enjoyed one each. I ate one of the Carrot Banana and just half of the Banana Berry muffins. Since it was over the lunch time, I considered this my lunch. The first picture is of the Carrot Banana Muffins and the second is of the Banana Berry Muffins.
I am going to leave you today with this muffin recipe...
Carrot Banana Muffins
2 cups almond flour2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 cup dates, pitted
3 ripe bananas
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 ½ cups carrots, shredded
¾ cup walnuts, finely chopped
muffin paper liners
Preheat oven to 350℉.ONE: In a small bowl, combine almond flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
TWO: In a food processor, combine dates, bananas, eggs, vinegar and oil.
THREE: Transfer mixture to a large bowl and blend until completely combined.
FOUR: Fold in carrots and walnuts.
FIVE: Spoon mixture into paper lined muffin tins.
SIX: Bake at 350° for 25 minutes.
For the Banana Berry Muffins, instead of the carrots, I used about 1 1/2 cups of berries(raspberries(of course)and blackberries mixed) and I did not put the walnuts in...but you could...I just forgot.
The Carrot Banana Muffins are 269 calories per muffin
The Banana Berry Muffins are 210 calories per muffin (with no walnuts)
I have posted this early today so that the winner of the contest was announced sooner, rather than later today.
Not sure what's for dinner tonight, I don't know if there is anything planned for Mother's Day or not, but I will log it into http://www.myfitnesspal.com/ and enjoy the rest of my day.
...and THANK YOU ALL for following me through my 90-Day Body Revolution Journey. I wish you all the best throughout your journey and...
