Sensa Weight Loss System: The Reveal

Well hello my fitness chameleons!! It has been a little while since I did a blog post for this section of my blog and today I am ready to reveal to you what I am going to be experimenting with while I get back in shape! If you do not follow me on twitter (twitter.com/beautychameleon) you really should because I chat a lot there and I may reveal things there first before it reaches here or my youtube channel (NHOP76).

Back on Jan 31st I tweeted that I ordered Sensa! Yes, I did! As you will see in my video I ordered Sensa because of my awesome friend at work. I will just call her "B". "B" used Sensa's weight-loss system in 2010 and with minimum exercise and I mean minimum she lost 15 pounds!! I was truly amazed because Sense is not a weight loss stimulant at all. To find out more details about how Sensa work click "www.TrySensa.com" to learn more or just watch my video below (smile). Anyway. . while seeing her success with it I thought to myself, "what if I used Sensa while eating a healthy diet, exercise 3-4 days a week and drinking lots of water would it accelerate my weight-loss?" So with my sick mind (remember I was sick around this time) I decided I am ordering Sensa ASAP to jump start my weight loss.

Now just for an Update on my weight loss at the beginning of the new year January 1st I weighted in at 196lbs, Yikes I know!! At the end of January I was down to 188lbs so without Sensa I had already lost 8lbs on my own. Later, moving into February my weight-loss was stalled because I was sick for the 1st week in February and exercise was cut out of my life until I start to feel better during the second week in this month. Finally, my Sensa arrived on Valentines Day and when I opened the package I knew it was on!

Sensa is VERY easy to use you just sprinkle it on foods and that's it!! For the past 2 weeks I have been using Sensa I have been eating healthy and completing 1-2 days of martial arts training and 2 days of cardio training from the comfort of my own home and let me tell you within the 2 weeks I have already lost 4 using  POUNDS sensa. Isn't that crazy!! So, my current weight is finally at 184lbs, Yahooooooooo!! I told my friend "B" this and she was like really? I am going to exercise more too!

So all in all, during my month 1 of Sensa I am loving this product and I totally recommend it to anyone that is trying to lose weight this year!! If you are trying to lose weight definitely go to "www.TrySensa.com" and find out more about how this product can help you reach your weight loss goals in 2011!!

Fitness Chameleon: Working Out After Being Sick

Man. .  If you all ready my post in the Life section of my blog or if you follow me on twitter you all now that I have been sick all last week, right? Well, during that week of being sick it was killing me not to workout or eat foods that were healthy for me. Hence, I am bloating and retaining water like crazy!! I did a post sick weigh in and my pre sick weight was 188lbs and my post sick weight was 194??? WHAT?? Then I thought to myself what did I eat while I was sick? Humm . . Campbells chicken noodle soup, saltine crackers and lots of water. EKKKK!! My body was loaded with too much sodium and as a result I am retain water like crazy!!

So I wanted to share this lesson with you all. When you are sick First, rest your body in order to avoid any injury to yourself while being sick. Secondly, stick to low sodium soups and crackers (or no crackers at all). Even try making homemade soup if you are feeling up to it if possible. Then you will not have to deal with this post sick water retention that I will have to flush out of my system.

On another note I am so happy to report that I exercised for the first time after being sick with the help of my icy hot patch on my back! I decided to pop in my Christi Taylor StepSational DVD and workout. And man. .. sweat never felt so good! Today's meal plan has been very clean too. I am just scared what i will eat while watching the Superbowl tonight. My plan tonight is to watch portion sizes, watch out for foods high in sodium, and drinks lots of water (no alcohol or sodas, OMG, did I just say that. Everyone pray!). I will update this post to let you know how I did. In the meantime here is my meal plan for today:

  • Breakfast: 1 serving of oatmeal, grapes, and 1 turkey sausage
  • Lunch: Lobster tail and veggie salad
  • Snack: Yogurt and banana
  • Dinner: Update later
  • Snack: Update later

If you are getting in shape in this new year, what did you do to be active today? How was your eating and what did you eat? I would love to help you and support your in meeting your goals too!

Until later, have a fabulous time watching the Superbowl!!

Go PACK GOOOO!! (Native to Wisconsin, so I have to root for my packers!!

P90X Round 2: Week 1 & 5 Pounds Gone!

Hey you all, like is said in my last video, Tasha is going for another round of P90X!! Round 2!! Last week began round 2 with a new meal plan and new goals to achieve as well. In round 2 I could shed off more weight and return back to my healthy weight of 168 pounds!! Last week began round 2 and my hubby is going along for the ride too! It is nice to have a workout buddy. Having a buddy to workout with makes me workout harder, because I am so darn competitive at times, lol. And, it also helps me keep in track of my form through out each workout. At the beginning of the 2nd round my weight began at 188 pounds. When I weighed in on Saturday my weight was:

  • 183 pounds!! Lost 5 pounds this week!!!

Now I know for sure that I will not continue to lose weight like this every week, but it was awesome to have that jump start with exercising and the new meal plan too! I am so geeked and excited to be into week 2 again! For more details of how this week went check out my video below for more details!

Fitness With P90X: Week 9 Update & On To Week 10.. Sick too :(

Hey all, getting sick is getting very old. At the end of week 9 my allergies hit me hard! Sinus congestion and sneezing then. . . voice is missing somewhere in the universe. I swear it is not fair. I wanted to hit it hard toward the middle of week 9, but I guess not, grrrrr! I guess you have to rest when the body says to huh? I guess I can’t complain because I went a head this past Saturday and weighed in. To my surprise I drop 1.5 pounds leaving me at 188.5!! Not bad!! I am not going to get too excited because I was sick and sometime my weight drops more during that time. So my prayer going into week 10 is that I maintain that loss.

Stats:

  • Jan 8th: Start weight: 198lbs
  • Jan 15th: 198lbs (no gain/lose)
  • Jan 22nd: 196 (-2lbs) Yeah!! A loss and I will take it!
  • Jan 29th: 196 (no gain/lose) But I lost inches!
  • February 5: 195 (-1lbs) totaling 3 pound for the fist 4 weeks
  • February 13th: 194 (-1lbs) totaling 4 pounds in 5 weeks
  • February 20th: 192 (-2lbs) totaling 6 pounds in 6 weeks
  • February 27th: 190.5 (-1.5lbs) totaling 7.5 pounds in 7 weeks!! Getting excited for the next coming weeks!!
  • March 6th: 190 (-.5lbs) totally 8 pounds in 8 weeks!! I will take it considering I was sick.
  • March 13th: 188.5 (-1.5lbs) totaling 9.5 in 9 weeks!! Considering I was sick again with these darn allergies! Will they ever leave me alone?

Sorry, no video for week 9. I was at work this past weekend and I was talking all day long and then my voice decided to disappear. Now I am being called squeaky at home, lol. I also was not able to get pictures of my 60 results, but don’t worry they will be coming later this week and I will post them in my week 10 results video this weekend for sure.

I have to say, that many people have been asking  the following questions:

  1. Can I lose weight fast with the P90X?
  2. Do you have to follow the meal plan too P90X?
  3. How do you plan your workouts?
  4. Does this program really work?

My Answers:

  1. No you will not lose weight fast with this program. P90X is not a quick weight loss program. This program is designed to help you burn fat and build strong lean muscle. If you are not used to interval/circuit training and weight training this program is not for you. With every program you should consult with you doctor before trying. be safe and workout smart.
  2. I would totally recommend following the suggested meals plans. I wish I would have at the beginning because if I did I may have had more weight loss. P90X requires you to workout 6 days a week for 1 hour at a time and you body requires a certain amount of calories, carbs and protein to make it through each workout in order to function and loss the fat. If you don’t you can deplete your body of the proper nutrition and hender you weight loss in the long run.
  3. With anything you must plan out your day. I work a full time job, I am a mother and a wife. So it is all about time management. I work a retail job so my schedule changes all the time. So I make sure that if I work a late shift I plan to work out in the morning after I get my son off to school instead of going back to bed to get the extra sleep. or if I work a early shift I workout in the evening after I get my son to bed. So I may be working out at 8 or 9pm in at night. When there is a will there is a way. Then once my workouts are done then I go about watching T.V, cleaning the house, running errands, work or making of course Youtube videos. Remember manage your time. If you really want to change your body you will make time for it.
  4. Yes this program does work if you follow it! I am losing fat and leaning up and I will continue to week by week. just be patient with your progress.

I hope that helps. Well, I am still stuffing for the allergies to this day however I am still working out to my best. Yesterday I did my chest shoulders and triceps workout and I am sore. I really need to order that recovery drink and I think I will. I heard that it really helps your muscles recover from each workout and I need it. A few minutes ago I just finished the cardioX workout. I did the whole workout at my pace and I am glad that I did. I feel accomplished and now I can really rest.

Well, I am off for now! I hope that you all have a blessed week and I will chat soon.

hugs,

Tasha 🙂

Fitness With P90X: Life Hits Ya and Ya Get Sick. . .

Hey all I am getting to the end of week 8 results and it will be time for my weekly weigh in and results that will be done on Saturday or Sunday. This week life surely got in my way which affected my workouts and eating this week. Over the weekend my hubby and son was sick with either allergies or sinus infections and I was praying please don’t let me get sick, please! Well. . . Sunday came and I started to get sniffles and I was like Damn! I better not get sick. I was able to do the following workouts which was:

  • Saturday: Cardio Intervals (which can be found on the bonus DVD) I placed that workout instead of doing YogaX.
  • Sunday: I did Core Synergistics (However I only made it through 40 minutes. . . I was starting to feel it then
  • Monday: I did KenpoX the entire workout

Tuesday came and I felt it. I was sick with a small fever and sinus congestion. I was so mad because I hate to get sick.  It just throws my whole week and workout goals out of whack! I hate to lose my momentum with me leaning down. I really want to see awesome results this week, but I have to listen to my body and rest. All in all, I missed my Wednesday and Thursday workout! I guess I will not beat myself up life happeneds, right? So with that said I will continue with the remainder of the workouts and not do my results until Sunday morning and move on to week 9.

I decided to skip out on the Stretch X DVD and instead complete the cardioX. I felt like sweating and burning some calories and I did!! Today I was so excited because I was able to do 5 Dreya Rolls in a row!! Yahooooooooooooooooooooo!! I could never do that! Tomorrow I is supposed to be yogaX day, but. . . I really don’t like this workout. It’s too long and slow paced for me. Does anyone else feel that way? I almost want to replace that workout as a whole, but I guess I shouldn’t. I get the fact that it’s makes you stronger and more flexible, but dang! 1 hour and 30 minutes!! I will have to do that workout right when I get home from work tomorrow otherwise it will not get done at all. So, that is what I plan to do.

Well, anyway, it is time for me to hit the showers and get ready for work. Stay tuned my get fit beauties I will have my results and video up this Sunday!!

Keep bringing it,

Tasha 🙂

I can’t believe how far I have come and how much stronger I am know and how much stronger and lighter I will be at the end of this journey, continuing in the future. I totally lost track of time and can’t believe that I did not share with my blog readers my results for week 6. I did make a post on my youtube channel, but not here. So definitely watch week 6 video before skipping to watch week 7’s video, lol.

Week 6 Vlog:

This just makes me keep going and my me try harder and make goals to get better.

Fitness with P90X (Day 37, 38 & 39) Update

This week I am feeling wiped out! I don’t know why? I am thinking that it is that time of the month and my body is challenging me. Also it has been a busy work weekend too being that it was valentine’s day weekend. So when I got home from work (retail/makeup) I was beat down! I am not kidding. If I had to say this is one weekend I was tired of makeup, lol. Anyway when I returned home I just wanted to rest, but I worked out anyway even though I did not want too, lol.

It was 9:30pm on Sunday night when I decided to do CardioX from the P90X program. It was late, but it got done and I am happy with that. The only down side is that I could not fall asleep right away which is not good because I woke up Monday morning and I was tired! For real! My son had school yesterday even though it was president day, so I was up at 6:30am, yikes!! Got him off to school and when I return home I was getting breakfast and myself ready for work in the afternoon. I was attempting to do the Chest, Arms and tricep DVD, but I was not feeling myself so. I stopped it to avoid not getting the full results of the workout and opted to have my rest day early this week and will continue the workouts as planned.

So, I guess my point is life does get in the way at times when you are trying to stay on point with the workouts, but the great thing is that you can always get back on track when you are ready and feeling well about it too!

With that said today is Day 39 which is week 6 for me and today workout will be Chest, Shoulders & Triceps, Ab ripper X (not my favorite still) My poor tummy is going to burn tonight. My plan for today so that I am not to full from my dinner before working out is to eat my dinner a bit earlier today. So, at work I plan to take advantage of my break time and use it for once. I get a 1 hour lunch break and two 15 minute breaks, so I will have my lunch as usual and then closer to the end of my shift I will take a 20 minute break to eat my dinner at 5:30pm. This will help me out so by the time my workout time comes when is at 8pm after I get my son to bed I can get my workout in without having a full tummy. Remember, DO NOT workout on a full tummy. You will get sick, believe me I know.

Well. . . You all are probably wondering how were your meals that past few days? Well here is the menu and some pics of new meals I tried from the P90X nutrition guide.

Sunday’s Meal Plan:

  • breakfast: Protein Shake
  • Snack: Protein Bar
  • Lunch: Island Pork tenderloin salad
  • Snack: String Cheese
  • Dinner: Beef and broccoli stir fry Miso soup and protein powder

Monday’s Meal Plan:

  • Breakfast: Turkey Bacon, Cheese scramble and fruit
  • Snack: protein Bar
  • Lunch: Chicken Salad with salad greens and vegetable soup
  • Snack: String Cheese
  • Dinner: Chicken with honey chille sauce, wild rice and green beens

Today’s Meal Plan: No pictures but you can find pictures of the meal here:

  • Breakfast: Mushroom Omlet, strawberries and cottage cheese
  • Snack: protein Bar
