RevAbs week #11 update

Here is my week #11 update of RevAbs by Brett Hoebel & BeachBody.


I’m writing this part of my post on Friday, only because I had what I call a RevAbs victory today.
I’ve know my husband for 12 years now and prior to knowing me, Chris would hike a place called the “Cup & Saucer” often. Since knowing me, we have never gone. I was overweight and totally out of shape. But this year I decided to give it a try. Before starting I though this place was going to be easy, peazy. I mean, with the name Cup & Saucer you’d think it was like a dainty tea that people hiked all the time for fun. I immediately learn otherwise. We took the full trail, all 12KM(3 hours) of it. And let me tell you this isn’t just a walk in the woods. You are climbing rocks, going down tree ladders and hopping over large cracks in the mountain. I would never been able to do this a year ago, in fact I KNOW I wouldn’t over even been able to do this 11 weeks ago. But with all the hard work with RevAbs I had the strength and endurance to get through it.

During the climbs I kept hear Brett say, “What are we climbing?” and I’d reply “The mountain”. I also had many panic attacks when climbing, afraid to fall but I took Brett’s words, “You can doing anything for 5 minutes” and twisted it a bit and said to myself “you can do anything for these few steps, you’re almost there”. Oh and let me tell you, not only do my arms & legs hurt with this hike but my abs too. There were a lot of balancing those 3 hours and with all the ab work I’ve been doing with RevAbs I could feel how strong they were.
Without RevAbs I would have never hiked this trail, it had already been 12 years without hiking it and I thought I’d never do it. I have to give a HUGE thank you to Brett/RevAbs for kicking my butt into shape and for allowing me to experience this beautiful climb. I hope to do this again soon.
Here are a few photos of the climb. (you can see the “dues” I paid getting to the top of the mountain.)


These are my legs after the climb, look at my dirt tan line, lol.

So as you can sort of see this week has been different for me. First off we were traveling Monday & Tuesday. I did workout at the gym in the hotel and go for a swim and on Tuesday our car broke down so we walked around for 4 hours. On Wednesday I was sick again, so no working out. But Thursday I got to get back to RevAbs and pushed myself harder then I ever had and it felt amazing. Friday we did the 3 hour hike/climb and Saturday I did RevAbs again and kicked my butt into gear.
Other then Monday & Tuesday(which I still ate better then when I usually travel), Food was good for me. I watched what I ate , even left food on my plate because I was starting to get that full feeling and I had Shakeology everyday. I’ve been sure to get plenty of water too, I usually drink more then my 8 glasses a day anyway but with the heat I’m drinking more.
I’m hoping the scale will show my hard work this week. I only have 2 weeks left of my 90 day RevAbs review and I want to make the most of it. I do plan on sticking with phase three for awhile after my review is done though, it feels too good not to keep it up. Plus I still have flab on my tummy I want knocked away.

ERICA’S Stats-
I weighed in at 188.5lbs today. For a loss this week of -0.7lbs and a total of -14.3lbs

Not totally happy at how low my loss was but I have to remind myself this week has been weird(traveling, sick, ect…) and at least it’s a loss and not a gain. I really hope for at least 2lbs loss next week.

(and for those of you that have been following me since Christmas 2010 my total weight loss is -57.0lbs(starting weight on Dec 13 245.5lbs))
