It has been quite the journey. I have learned so much about myself along the way. I've learned that I actually do love fitness and working out. I've learned that exercise is the best stress reliever. I've learned that there is no better way to eat than clean; nothing will make me feel better. Most importantly, I've learned that I am truly as strong as I allow myself to be. I'd be lying if I didn't say that this program has changed me completely. And I don't just mean because of the loss of fat from my body and the muscle I have gained. I've learned to take charge of my health.
Here's where I started:
Chest: 36 around bust
Waist: 29 smallest part
Hips: 36 above butt
Thigh: L 24 / R 24.5
Calf: L 14.25 / R 14
Bicep: L10 / R 10 ; L flexed 10.5 / R flexed 11
Weight: 140 lbs
Body Fat: 26.6%
And this is where I am now:
Chest: 34.5 around bust
Waist: 26.5 smallest part
Hips: 34 above butt
Thigh: L 21 / R 21
Calf: L13 / R 13
Bicep: L 9.25 / R 9.25 ; L flexed 10 / R flexed 10.25
Weight: 130 lbs
Body Fat: 19.8%
Here is my progress so far (excluding before pictures), side by side, for easier viewing:
Well I wasn't expecting to get this far in 12 weeks. To be honest, I wasn't expecting to see results at all. And full disclosure, I am feeling very bloated and crampy today (thanks period) and didn't even want to take these pictures because of that. Even bloated, the difference and the progress is noticeable. It is not a perfect body. It is not my 'dream body.' But it is my body; I like it! I worked hard for it, and will continue to take care of it.
Now, I may be done with the 12 weeks I signed up to blog about, but this is definitely not an end for me. I still have so many goals to reach! And I am certainly not done with Revolt. I love the program and see myself integrating so many of it's aspects into my daily life, for life. Most certainly the food, as I've never felt better eating any other way. I would just like to get back to a more strict plant-based diet. I may expand my workouts a bit, too. I do plan on still sharing my progress with you from time to time, don't you fret. Fitness has become a passion and such a huge part of my life that it is bound to happen :)
Remember, you can sign up for a free week of Revolt and try it all for yourself! And a monthly membership is only $10, or a full year for $50! For such an all inclusive, supportive program, you really can't get a better deal.
