My body Rev

This started as a simple blog about my 90 day journey, but grew into so much more. I decided to continue and turn it into a platform for health, fitness and nutrition. The support and feedback I've been getting is amazing and very humbling, I want to give back and help inspire you as much as you inspire me. “Why choose to fail when success is an option?”/JM/

If this doesn’t make you laugh more often, I don’t know what will!

You’ve heard it before, laughter is the best medicine. On top of healing, it can also help you lose weight!

I’ve posted about hydration before and just how important it is, especially in areas where the heat is still relentless. Many people confuse drinking with hydration. A soda, coffee or other artificial juices just won’t have the same effect as water or even tea. Yes, I know, water is bland, it tastes boring and you don’t get the same sugar rush as from a coke, but consider the many benefits. Plus…

It’s October again, aka breast cancer awareness month. Being affected by it, even if indirectly, makes me even more passionate about raising awareness and fighting it, hoping to find a cure soon. My grandmother was diagnosed with stage II breast cancer at…

Movin' on up

I decided to move my blog to wordpress. I want to make the blog a bit more lively and interactive and wordpress offers a better platform for it (and the new blog url has “anus” in it, you know it’s quality stuff!. It’s easier to follow, comment, troll; now you won’t have to get tumblr if you want to tell me that the blog sucks. (You’re welcome). Hope to see you all on the other side!

Sunday chuckle, have a good week y’all!

Sunday chuckle, have a good week y’all!

Picked up this workout last night, tested it today. Even though it’s level one, I definitely felt it. Coming off Body Rev, some of it seemed rather easy. Some moves I’m not sure I’m doing right, or just not clear on where exactly I should be feeling it. Maybe the next time around I’ll nail those too. There are four circuits, the last one being the hardest for me. That one is the most ab intensive, really hammering upper and lower abs. It goes from tornados (you lift your legs up and move them around in a circle without them touching the ground) to unsteady table to plank holds with a twist. It’s painful, I was struggling a little towards the end, especially with my breathing. I definitely prefer this to her 6 week 6 pack DVD. This is a little lower impact, less cardio, more focus on the core and abs. Worked out perfectly since I’m still recovering from overtraining, so smaller stress on my legs was definitely a good thing. I will tackle lever 2 and 3 sometime next week. My abs are cringing already.

Jill's back!

I’ve heard rumors of her return before, glad that they were indeed true. I’m really happy that she’s coming back and also that the show is finally tackling yet another epidemic. I am very curious to see how it will work out, how receptive the audience will be to this new spin and how delicate the BL will be with the kids. From what she explained, they will be very careful with how they address them, the challenges, no weigh ins for them and the goals will be different. I’m very much looking forward to this new season. My hope is that it will resonate well enough with the viewers that they will eventually have a season that’s teens only. I know many have been inspired by the show, this could be a good way for the younger, obese generation to have people their age they can relate to and set an example. Good move, NBC. Maybe you finally got something right?

I know it’s not easy to find good things when you’re on the go, or at work and all you need is a little bite to keep going. It’s so easy to reach for the candy, that bag of chips or a greasy quick fix. There are a variety of healthier alternatives that will fuel your body much better. Some of my favorites:

  • Think Thin or Power Crunch bars. 
  • Fage 0%  Greek yogurt with 1/2 of blueberries
  • 1 apple with 1 oz cheddar
  • 1 serving of nuts (almonds, peanuts, walnuts, cashews etc). Just makes sure it’s 1 SERVING, or one of those 100 calorie packs
  • Celery with 1 serving of peanut butter (make sure it’s natural, no added sugar or a mile long ingredient list)
  • 1 Apple with 1 serving of peanut butter
  • 1 serving cottage cheese with 1/2 cup berries of your choice
  • 1 serving of whey protein shake with almond or coconut milk if possible
