Sensa Weight Loss System: Month 2 Update (Lazy month)

Hey beauties! Today I am sharing with you my month 2 progress with the Sensa Weight Loss System. I have to say month 2 was a slow month for me. I guess like you will hear in my video below I got a promotion with my job and for the past few months of this new year I had to get adjusted to working Monday through Friday 8-5 or 9-6pm during they day. You may say what’s so bad with that schedule? Well, working in the retail management I was used to having days off during the middle of the week and leaving early on certain days. With that said I was able to plan my meals and grocery trips during the middle of the week and also plan my high cardio days  too. Now, with having to cram in my workouts, groceries and meal planning all to the weekend really threw me off. Why? Well I have to take care of everything on the weekend now including family, household, etc. Hence a diva pulling her hair out, lol. As a result, my month 2 was slow.

In month 2 I was able to maintain my 5 pound loss during the first month in addition to losing an additional 2 pounds in month 2 as well. Granted I gained and loss that 2 pounds over the course of that month bringing to a total weight loss of 7 pounds thus far. In addition to that my body decided it wanted to get sick toward the end of February which means my routine I was starting to get used too was thrown off track for the rest of the month. Sorry for the mild rant, but I was really upset for a little while because toward the end of last month I felt like
I had a plan in order and then life throws me off track! But I guess the good thing is I am back on track! I honestly just started month 3 last week and I am slowly getting my healthy and fitness routine back on track. So, my goal is to stay focused and hopefully report some good results in either measurements or scale loss in April.

I can say that I am having fun posting some of my meals on my facebook page for it keeps me on track and I also hope it helps and motivates other to eat healthy too. I can’t wait to start posting progress photos as soon as I see a visible change. In the meantime, I plan to get this body moving and I think I have made the decision to purchase turbofire in the next few days. So, I feel like another challenge in coming on for the spring months!! Turbofire here I come! Turbofire +Sensa = awesome fat loss!!

Until next month month you all stay well and healthy!! Also stay tuned this week! I have a feeling that one lucky reader/subscriber will be winning their very own Sensa weight loss system, Yay!!

New Sensa Journey Take 2: Month 1 Results

Happy New Year!! I hope that you all had a great holiday season and are ready to take on the year of 2012 with a bang! As many of you know I decided to get back on Sensa Weight Loss System after thanksgiving with a start weight of 190lbs (I am 5’8″ tall). It was fun getting started with the sensa and also trying the vitamins, quenches and the chews. With working retail management sometimes my meals we stretched out a lot, so the Sensa chews and the quenches were a God send. They helped curb my appetite so I wouldn’t over eat when it was time time. My only challenge for me in getting enough water in for the day which is something that I will continue to work on in the New Year of 2012. I need to keep the work permanently attached to my hip, lol.

Many of you may ask did I exercise and my answer will be minimally. I take martial arts 2-3 times a week which helped me maintain my weight and lose a little while using the sensa. However, I do feel that if I worked out more like I used to I would have lost more weight. You may wonder, what type of exercise do I do? While, I really enjoy cardio workouts like step aerobics, kick boxing, and jogging therefore I need to get my mind ready to do that along with weight lifting too. By doing  all of that it will help me build lean muscle which in the long run helps the body burn more fat which equal loss of inches and loss of weight. So all in all that will be a goal for me in this new year. My struggle is running to the coach when I get home from work, or to the computer to Facebook or YouTube, so I will have to minimize that in the new year or plan out my day where my exercise is complete in the morning and maintain control over eating at night time when I am not hungry. Do any of you struggle with that? I work retail management and my hours are so irregular that it is a challenge

I have to say the first 3 weeks were easy for me until Christmas came along. With all of the holiday eating came a stop in my weight loss too! I did not keep my control with the portions or kept hydrated with water so my weight loss stopped during week 4. (0lbs lost) I am retaining like crazy!! Did any of you experience that during the holidays? Sometimes the holidays are tough, but I will not beat myself up. I know what I need to do in order to gain control which means back to the healthy eating, exercising and drinking mega amounts of water.

You all may be wondering what type of foods did I eat? Did I prepare all of my meals from scratch? No way! I am too busy for that. With working full-time, busy mom, wife and taekwondo student and mom some day it is impossible to prepare everything. So some days I will prepare foods for my family and take left overs to work and on other days I will make fast easy meals or lean cuisine it too! It just works for me and avoids less stress too. So, I guess if you are in the same boat as I am you will have to experiment on what foods you like and make that a staple item in order for you to have success. I also came across some great healthy recipes from some cookbooks I picked up too! My meal sample meal:

Breakfast ideas:

  • Vanilla Yogurt parfait (my fav)
  • Instant  oatmeal with bananas with orange juice
  • Breakfast Tacos with egg whites with fruit
Lunches:
  • Lean Cuisines (fast for convenience)
  • Salad
  • Tuna Salad with veggies
  • Turkey Sandwich with Veggies
Dinner:
  • Catfish with veggies
  • Orange chicken with rice
  • Lean Cuisines (when working)

My results for month 1 are a total of 5lbs losts which brings me to a weight of 185. My measurements are as follows:

Bust: 38″ (same, no change)

Waist: 34.25″ (lost -.75″)

Hips: 44″

I am excited about the weight loss and I can not weight to see what month 2 brings me too! My goal is to lose 10 pounds this 2 month with the new goals I have into place. Also at the end of month 2 my goal is to have progress pictures ready to share with you all too. Until post you all be well and healthy and again, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Hugs,

Tasha 🙂

Sensa Weight Loss: A New Journey Begins

Hey beauties!! How are you all doing this holiday season? I am sure everyone is out and about getting their holiday shopping on for their loved ones and maybe for yourself. I am too and at the same time I am doing myself a favor with getting back in shape during the holidays with Sensa Weight loss system again. If you are new to my channel and few months back I gave Sensa a try for one month and was successful with losing 5 pounds the first month using the system with a healthy diet and exercise. Many of you may have been wondering. . . what happen with the weight since then? Well, with life things got in the way of my goals. My dad passed away this past May and with that happening I kind of lost myself and track of my personal goals. So with that said I put my weight loss goals to the side for the moment until I got my mind back in the right place. On top of that my hubby and I was thinking about adding another child to the family, so I really did not have a focus of weight loss at all.

It was until recently after visiting with my doctor. . . I was discussing with my doctor about the potential of having another child and she mentioned that she would like for me to get healthy and lose some weight before conceiving again just so I could have a healthy pregnancy. So we both discussed  a plan to lose 30 pounds before I consider baby making plans. I thought that was realistic and I was ready to get started and I had a plan too! I was ready to get back on Sensa since it work very well for me earlier this year. You are probably wondering why Sensa? Well. . . the reason why I am a busy wife, mom and a woman that works a full time job on top of taking martial arts with my son.  I needed a weight loss system that was very easy to use especially when I don't have time to cook healthy meals all the time. With Sensa I can use it on anything I eat and the Sensa helps me not over eat, and curbs my appetite throughout the day.

So with that said, I was ready to order Sensa again to get my plan in action. However, before I was ready to get start the team over at Sensa contacted me and wanted to know if I would like to get back in shape using Sensa? And of course, I said yes because I know that their product works and it was perfect timing since I am ready to get back in shape during this holiday season. As a result, the were so generous to send me some products to get started! So, you know I have to share this excitement with you all of course! So here we go! At first I was a bit overwhelmed when I received this huge package of goodies from them. I originally received them a few weeks ago, but I did not want to share them with you right away, because I wanted to try everything first in order for me to give you an honest opinion of the product first and since that is done I am ready to chat with you all!

Goodies:

Above is the Kisckstart program ($49.95) that you can use to accelerate your weight in the beginning along with using your Sensa Tastants. This kick comes with a water bottle a pedometer to track how many steps taken, a bracelet to wear in order to help you remember to Sensa your food daily, a magnet for your fridge and two books. One books is a guide to working out and what I love best about that is it is great for someone that has not worked out in a long time. The exercises looks simples and easy to get you off to a great start. The other book is a 10 day meal plan guide. I have not tried them all, but I do have my favorites such as the yogurt parfait, breakfast sandwich and such. The meals are easy to prepare and if you do not have time to cook there are some dinning out guides to help you get well during the program too!

I also received and tested out the Sensa Nutritional supplements, $49.95 per box. This I did not have any issues with taking them. They did not make me sick which is a plus to me because some vitamins has that effect and when that happens I usually will not take them. At my age I need to take vitamins to balance me out throughout the day. In this box you get 30 supplements to take once daily either in the morning or during lunch time. According to Sensa these vitamins has an herbal blend of highly-specialized nutrients is designed to work in conjunction with the SENSA® Weight-Loss System for long-term weight loss results. Each daily supplement pack contains a targeted combination of supplements including Vitamin A, C, E and B Complex, Green Tea Extract, and Acai Berry. They help support a healthy immune system, maintains healthy muscle, and strengthens body against free radical influences.

Now the Sensa quenches are my favorites!! These are great energy drinks to help you last between lunch and dinner. The quenches comes in 4 flavors as you see above. I love them all except for the grapefruit. I like grapefruit, but not in this form. Each box is filled with 30 quenches that are easy to carry in your lunch bag is you work outside the home. The quenches reminds of the crystal lights, but 10 times better with the energy your get from these. Sensa says these quenches are guilt-free alternative to soda boosts energy and provides the vitamins and antioxidants your body needs to support a healthy metabolism. And at only 15 calories, it can help you reach your weight-loss goals even faster. These quenches sale for $39.95 per box. I forgot to mention these quenches do not increase your heart rate or make you feel edgy like other diet drink mixes which is awesome!

The Sensa Appetite control chews are a life savor. I received a package of the chocolate chews and on of the berry chews. One their website these sells for $29.95 The chewables are a  Low-calorie, sugar-free SENSA® CHEWS that enhance weight-loss results by helping you stave off cravings in between meals. The appetite chews are powered by a blend of antioxidants.The SENSA® CHEWS make it easy to give your body the nutrients it needs. One day at work I took an early lunch break, so around 3pm I was hungry and I needed something to tie me over until dinner so that I would not over eat. I decided to take 2 chews with a glass of 8 ounces of water. Let me tell you, I did not think it would work, but it did!! I was so excited that I decided to keep back ups of both in my purse just incase that happens again. Both taste yummy! If I am craving chocolate I eat the chocolate one of course and if I want something fruity I eat the berry chews instead.

I also received the Sensa on the go packets! I find this great to use if you do not want to take the Sensa shakers to work or to a restaurant. These to go packets are small and discrete for $19.95. Each pack comes with 10 sweet packets and 20 salty packets.

Now, here is the two month system I received to help me toward my goals. I received (2 ) month 1 and month 2 Sensa Tastants. You received 2 of each just so you can keep on at home and one at work in order for you to Sensa every time you eat! The kit also comes with a DVD guides and booklet on how to get started.

Lastly, I received some Sensa goodies which I thought was so sweet of the team at Sensa to send me. The goodies included a Sensa t-shirt, mug, bag and a Sensa cover! I thought that was nice of them to send me to use from day to day.

Overall, I am so excited to begin this journey with Sensa in order to reach my weight loss goal! I feel Sensa is a great system in order to have safe a successful weight loss for women. My official start date was Monday November 28th and my goal is to follow up with you all next week to let you all know what my result weeks in the first week of giving this another try!!  In the meantime, check out my beginning stats and I also decided to include my official before pictures too!!

Sensa Weight Loss System: Month 1 Results

Hey my get healthy divas! Today I just want to give you an update on how my 1st month with using Sensa Weight Loss System with my get fit routine in 2011 went. Well. . . with diet and exercise on the Sensa I lost a total of 5 pounds!! I  went from 188lbs to 183lbs. Now don't get me wrong I am happy with that, but I thought I would have lost a little more being that I was eating and exercising too compared to people not exercising and eating what they want on the program.

So my initial thoughts are did Sensa really help me lose the weight or was it more me? I know I could have done a few things a little differently that could have accelerated my weight loss like:

  • Drinking more than 40-50 ounces a water a day.
  • Late Night snacking (bad habit that I am working on breaking)
  • Tweaking my food choices to be a  bit more clean.

So with that said I decided to order month 2 only to give it one more try since the company did mention that it could take a month for my body to get used to using it. In this second month I am going to be eating a bit cleaner for sure. My diet will consist off more dark green veggies or colorful veggies. Here is a sample grocery list that I used for my most recent trip:

  • Veggies: Romaine lettuces, red cabbage, cucumbers, tomatoes, radishes, green onions, onions, garlic, mushrooms and spinach, basil
  • Fruits: Blueberries, Blackberries, strawberries, red grapes, apples, pears, lemons
  • Meats: Wild Salmon, Chicken Breast, Ground Turkey, Pork chops (to be baked)
  • Cheese: Monterrey Jack, blue cheese, Gorgonzola, feta cheese (some cheeses will be used to be mixed with my sauces for meats and such, yummy!
  • Dairy: Sour Cream, Heavy Whipping cream for sauces, butter
  • Oils & Vinaigrette: Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Grape seed oil and Balsamic vinaigrette (for making my own salad dressings)
  • No Carbs addtional carbs for now

You may be wondering what My meal plan looks like? Right? Well. . .

  • Breakfast: Mixed bowl of fruits (All I have time for)
  • Lunch: Veggies salad mixed with romaine lettuce, spinach, cucumbers, reddish and scallions topped with my salad dressing mix. (if you would like to know my recipe for the dressing leave a comment below) In addition to the salad I will eat a baked chicken breast topped with my cream sauce mix of mushrooms, spinach, garlic, onions, butter, heavy whipping cream and Gorgonzola creams.  With a side of green beans
  • Dinner: Similar to lunch maybe with salmon and a pesto sauce.
  • Snack: Fruit with Cheese

My exercise will be the same. 2 days of Martial Arts and 2 day of cardio, but I am going to add in 1 day of weight training too. The last thing I know what I need to improve is drinking MORE water. 60-80?? How much should I be drinking?? More less?? Anywho, with these changes we will see how my results are if I lose more weight this more than last month then I will know want my decision will be for ordering Sensa in the future.

Question for you all. Anyone of you using Sensa or have used Sensa? Share your thoughts with us by leaving a comment below. You may be helping out another diva they is looking to lose weight  for this summer too!
