Brazil Butt Lift Day 7 of 35

Day 7 = Rest Day

Well today’s Rest Day actually turned into a REST DAY, with a little bit of work here and there. 

I like when my HRM is in sync with my life.

Didn’t do anything too exciting, with the exception of talking to a friend of mine about starting Jillian Michaels Body Revolution.  I know this blog post should be about the Brazil Butt Lift, but I am just so excited that my friend has decided to start the 90-day workout program of Body Revolution.  It doesn’t matter which workout program you choose to start with, the important thing is STARTING.  Since I am not getting paid by Jillian Michaels, RushFit or Leandro Carvalho from Brazil Butt Lift, (although I seriously think I should be) I can talk about any of their programs no matter what the title of today’s post is. 
I told you about my friend and her daughter that were starting Body Revolution back in May.  Well they have had awesome results.  They are a few weeks shy of finishing the program, but so far they have done fantastic!  Congratulations!  They both have lost about 19 pounds and feeling great!  Since they are past the Phase 1 and Phase 2 parts of the program, I loaned my Body Revolution program out to my other friend today.  The timing is perfect, she is planning on starting on the 6th of August and she will be done the first phase one week after I complete the Brazil Butt Lift.  I am planning on redoing Body Revolution on Monday September 4th.  We had talked about it a while ago and now she is ready to START.  Way to go L! (<<<I told her I wouldn’t use her name)  After going over the books with her and talking a little about the program, I emphasized how important it is for her to take "Before" pictures, along with measurements.  And like most of us, she did not want to get her picture taken.  Cameras don't lie.  I know from seeing pictures of myself, I didn't like what I saw.  I knew something had to be done and that's when I began my journey to a healthier version of ME.  Even though we don't like what we see, it really helps to keep you motivated to reach yours goals.  "So come on "L", get those pictures taken and stick them in your Stay Strong Notebook" along with your body measurements".

Today's food...
Breakfast: High Fiber Cereal with Berries & Almonds 

This was super delicious with the raspberries and almonds...yum.

Snack: Banana Blueberry Muffin
I split the muffin with my little girl.  Even though my breakfast was delicious, it wasn't quite enough to fill me up.

Lunch: Turkey Hummus Wrap
This meal is one from the suggested meals from the Brazil Butt Lift program.  I used some of the hummus I made last week and it was quite nice.
In the first picture, the rest of the wrap is waiting on the turkey breast to be grilled...

And this is the finished meal ready to be eaten. 
But as my son pointed out, "Don't eat the toothpick, Mummy".

Snack: A Phat Healthy Bar

Dinner: Turkey Barley Pilaf
I had planned on making grilled chicken and broccoli tonight for dinner, but as the day went on, dinner time came around very quickly and I wasn't sure if I wanted to make what I had planned.  I started to clean the fridge out and found some onions that needed to be used up.  I chopped them up and decided to through them into the pan to cook them up.  Then I found some mushrooms and threw them in with the onions.  Still thinking to myself, "What am I going to make?"  Then the light bulb went on...I had left over turkey from lunch, so I decided to make my Turkey Barley Pilaf.


My family LOVES this dish.  I'm so glad.

Okay, so the reason why the time moved by quickly, and dinner time was there all of a sudden, is because I was FINALLY finishing up the organizing of my baking supply cupboards.  I know, I know I showed you that ages ago.  Well I had to wait to buy some refills for my label making machine and find the time to do it.  Today was that day.  With this, I am going to update you on the Chocolate eating status of this, meaning ME, Chocoholic.  I told you all last week that I would not be eating chocolate for 5 weeks, with the exception of my birthday.  I am still on track, and the only chocolate that I had on my birthday was the chocolate sauce and the crust, on the Billy Miner's Pie.  I have been so good...very good...exceptionally good this week.  

Take a look what I had to do today...

I had it in my hands.  Just the glass and the lid between me and my love...chocolate.
I was strong, I wasn't even tempted to tell you the truth.  I labelled it and placed it back in the cupboard.

So this is what the cupboard looked like when I first organized it...

Nice, eh?
And this is what it looks like now...

 Even better!!!
All labelled and ready to use.

Get organized and you will be on your way to a healthier version of YOU too. 
Get rid of the crap food, and replace it with the good stuff.  Fill your cupboards with nuts, seeds, dried fruit, flours and spices so that YOU can make the good food.  Make your own muffins, bars and other great meals and snacks.

Tonight after putting the kids to bed, I made the mistake of coming upstairs to write my blog post for today.  My husband decided he wanted to watch Bridgette Jones' Diary, one of my favorite movies and it has taken me much longer to write this tonight.  Plus I can't seem to concentrate very well.  My favorite line in this movie is, "He's just a big knob head, with no knob"...followed by..."Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuck!"  LOVE IT!

Anyway, I will say good night and shut the movie off and get my lifted butt in bed.  Another round of Bum Bum in the morning with Leandro.

Until then...Stay Strong!

Good night

Trina

P.S. If you are wondering when a good time to start YOUR journey to a healthier version of YOU is???  TODAY is the day you should begin that journey.  Don't wait till tomorrow, because tomorrow never comes.  Have you heard that saying before?  Start right now.  Make your plan, take your pictures and write down your measurements and then start working out.  Stay Strong! and you will succeed!  Don't freak out over your measurements or your pictures...Keep Calm and Stay Strong...before you know it those measurements will be history.  And the pictures, well they will be a great reminder of how far you have come.  You will be great, you just have to START!

    1. Hey Yummy Mummy,

      Thanks for reading. That is Fantastic that you will be starting Body Revolution! It is always nice to de-clutter and get organized. It makes you feel SO much better. Sometimes the stuff we have in our homes gets in the way of living a healthy life.

      Stay Strong!

  2. Hi Trina,

    This is a follow up to something I commented on a long time ago! I started my own blog http://amiclubb.blogspot.com. I would love if you would follow it! You are my number one blog right now and very motivational so to have you follow me would be great. You can tell I love the way you do things in my blog :)

    I start Insanity on August 5th, then move to Body Revolution after the 63 days of Insanity! I am so excited and I figured the only thing I wasn't doing was writing everything down!


    Thanks for all the motivation!

  3. I'm in Phase 3 right now and connected with a couple of others on Jillian's website who want to re-start BR for a second cycle. Guess what day we are doing our restart? Monday, Sept 4th! Yay! I'm very happy that I can follow right along with you on my Body Revolution Redux. I will have a week "off" before hitting it again. This time around, I am hoping I find I can take some of the tougher options in phase 1.
