Chris Powell 12 Week Vemma Body Challenge Week 2

Week 2 has now ended! I was really nervous about weighing in this week.  When you have worked so hard, you want to see movement on the scale.  I was ecstatic to show another 2.7 loss!  I will take it!!
Grand total of 5.4 lbs loss!

I had a good week at the gym and logged many minutes there.  Here is some of the things I did:

50 min. Mountain Hike
61 min. on the elliptical
95 min. on the treadmill
15 min. weights
110 min. Aerobics

Carb Cycling is so easy for me.  Some of my favorites meals this week were:

My Chris Powell Protein Shakes & Bode Burn

This is a product that I have daily! It gets me through the day and the bode burn gives me the energy I need to finish the day!  Love these products!!

This is something I eat when I am on the go!


And on high carb days, I have been craving grapes!

 Week 3 starts the weeks go by, it gets easier.  I hope to continue with a loss.  Just as long as its not a gain!

Chris Powell 12 Week Vemma Body Challenge Week 1

Week 1 has come and gone.  It was a really good week with lots of exercise done. As mentioned before, my method of eating right now is carb cycling.  It really works for me!  This is a 12 week challenge that I am doing with the Vemma group, but a bunch of family members are doing a diet challenge.  I am pretty motivated trying to stay ahead of the pack. ;-)

 Here is how it went:

2.7 lbs. lossed
110 mins of strength & toning class
110 mins of Aerobic
146 mins on treadmill
70 mins on the elliptical
58, 261 steps

I really tried my hardest to be prepared.  If I had ready meals or snacks, I wouldn't grab something that wasn't healthy.  Trader Joe's is my favorite store to shop right now.  Here are some of my favorite items right now.

This is so yummy and I eat it with

And daily in my shakes I add power greens.


The second week has begun.  I hope to do just as well!!
